    Ok, something randomly fixed it! I did three things before things started working, and I'm not sure which helped:

     

    • Unclicked "Show list tickboxes" in the General menu
    • "Reset warnings" in Advanced
    • "Reset cache" in Advanced

     

    It may have also just been that a certain amount of time passed since I tried importing the first time.

     

    Some additional details:

     

    When I initially added the album it showed the "copying..." progress bar and appeared in my iTunes Music folder, but not in the library. When I tried to add it again, it didn't appear, and it didn't even show the "copying..." bar. So I tried deleting the album in my iTunes Music folder to see if it would copy again, and it did, but still didn't show up in the library. After adding the album folder into a playlist, it showed up in the playlist but under Info it said that the file was located in the trash.

     

    When things finally started working, it showed the "copying..." progress bar and then a second progress bar saying "Determining audio volume". When things were still broken, it didn't show the "determining audio volume" progress bar, so perhaps the bug has something to do with determining the volume ("sound check" in the playback menu) or some other kind of post-processing of the file that prevents it from getting to that point.

    Go to the menubar up top, select the Store menu.  Select 'Sign Out'.  After you're signed out, iTunes takes you to the iTunes Store.  Simply sign back in and you're all good.

    This also fixed my issues with iTunes 11.0 not importing a CD into my library.  The import create the folder and files in my iTunes library, but they did not appear in iTunes.

     

    I signed out and signed back in and they were in the library at that point.

    br00ks solution is the only one that worked for me. Thanks!

    This worked for me too, instantly. I wonder if iTunes 11 is not adding the files to the main library until Apple downloads additional information about the files or something. Very frustrating.

    I've been having the Same Exact issue I've tried to import a couple albums to the updated iTunes 11 and I can't even find where it asks you to import it. I don't know the updated iTunes very well.. :/

    Exact same problem here too. The new import eventiually turned up after time but don't know why.

     

    This used to be seamless in ealier versions of iTunes; you would have thought something as basic as this would have been picked up in testing.

    I'm having a similar issue.  I can search the songs I just downloaded (off Noisetrade).  I have dragged them into itunes (which usually works).  They show up in the drop down while I'm typing, but when I hit enter to actually search, nothing turns up

  • 55. Re: iTunes 11 won't import new music
    commedianorwich Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    That's right, searching shows the tracks in the drop down results but then iTunes can't actually find the music to play. Opening and closing iTunes, signing in and out seems to fix the glitch somehow.

    The exact same issue for me too, on both my iMac AND Macbook Air. Definately a bug. You'd have thought with an extra month they would have sorted out a simple thing like importing!

     

    Signing in and out helps for me too though (Thanks).

     

    Also, still no syncing of playlists for iBooks, huh, guess no-one on the iTunes dev team either reads or owns more than two books.

    Yeah, same for me - just logged out of itunes store and logged back in.  Movies dragged in magically appeared

    Having same problem: recently purchased album shows up as "downloaded" under my iTunes Store account, but does not appear in music list for iTunes 11 (unfortunately recently updated).

     

     

    If I search for the music in iTunes, I am given the option to add to "Up Next" but nothing happens when I click & unable to play music.

    Newly purchased music does appear on both my iPad3 (iOS 6) and iPhone 4S (iOS 5.1.1) & plays fine.

    This was driving me crazy, and this is what worked for me: View>Show Sidebar, and then drag new music from the playlists on the left (Recently Added or the automatically created album playlist) into the main library of songs.
