    Rebooting the computer does not trigger any iTunes importing process. Please explain what you have and what you are trying to do.

    I am finding that some random non-DRM protected files i used to have in my library are unable to be added after a format of the HDD and reinstall of latest version of itunes. iTunes appears to process the files but they do not appear in the library and are not consolidated into the library folder. There is nothing in the iTunes support pages to address this problem. I am attempting to import by drag-and-drop from explorer into iTunes library. The only workaround i have found so far involves using windows media player to burn as an audio cd then re-import them into iTunes... time consuming and a waste of cds... ideas anyone??

    Not sure whether that is the same issue the Original Poster is having. However, if you have MP3s that play in Windows Media Player but not in iTunes, you have the classic symptoms of iTunes being strict/finicky/incompetent (pick your own interpretation) about slight variations in MP3 headers. The problem can usually be fixed by applying a 3rd party tag cleanup program such as MP3 Validator to your files.
