I am attempting to add a 69 Gig file of music to my itunes library, which is currently empty. The  file is on my hard drive, under music/itunes library. When itunes finishes processing all the files, there is only 37G showing in my itunes library. 

What could be preventing the contents of the full file from being added?

PowerBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    In theory, iTunes can chug through 69 Gigs of music and add them to the library.  In reality, it often bombs in the middle with no explanation of what problem it encountered and with no indication of what was or wasn't added.


    Add the items in smaller increments.

    Thanks... I have tried adding in smaller increments as you suggested (a couple of G at a time), but it is still not adding over 60% of the files.  Any other suggestions....?

    Juniper,  is it possible that the files are incompatible with iTunes due to their format, or corruption?  What happens when you take one of the non-addable song files, right-click, and choose Open With > iTunes?
