Make sure that 'Keep iTunes Folder Organized' is enabled.

That's also where you can see your default iTunes library.
But I guess the main thing is to have 'Keep iTunes Folder Organized' enabled.
Just found a work around.
Try to import files from another drive, you may need to copy at least one mp3 pr mp4 file to another drive and import the folder the file is in. Following this if you try to import a folder from the orignal drive you can select a new folder. The same problem occours again after this, must be a bug in Vista or the way iTunes uses Vista. Eirther way it's a real pain. I was thinking of getting an Apple MacBook I am now one step closer!
Hope this helps.
Same problem ... sometimes I rip CD's, sometimes my sons do, but we share the same iTunes music folder (on an external HDD). I have not been able to clear out the info for the last folder added ... reboot PC, expand/collapse tree, nothing works. When a CD is ripped, I've got iTunes set to automatically add it to the current user's library, but it also creates a sub-folder in the iTunes music folder. If one of the other computer users wants to add the same CD/songs (folder) to their library, here's my workaround ...
- Open the iTunes application.
- Open the folder (mine is "iTunes Music") that contains the
sub-folder that you want to add to your iTunes library.
- Re-size both windows so you can see them both at the same
time on your monitor.
- Click and drag the folder you want to add to "Library" in
the iTunes window.
Hope this helps until someone else provides a better fix. Works great for me and is a lot quicker than using "Add folder to library" method.
