Finally bought my first Ipod, a tiny Shuffle. A simple as the thing is, I can't figure out how to update the Itunes library.

In other words, my Library is already set and full on songs Today I just copied over a bunch of new mp3s to the main drive where the Library points. But they have not appeared in my main Library list.

When I first opened Itunes it searched the drive...how do I get it to search the drive again?

You need to use the "Add file to library" or Add Folder to Library" from the File menu in iTunes.
When you do that the files will appear in iTunes, the other option is to open iTunes, open the file manager select the files you want and drag them to the iTunes library.

But if they've already been copied into a large folder where other MP3's are, the Library will not pick them up unless I delete it and start over. Kind of an odd way to design the feature.
