Where does iTunes store music files?

Hi Folks,

I am using WMP 12 normally, but since getting an iPhone have iTunes installed. I thought music in my My Music folder would show automatically in iTunes but it doesnt seem to. This is the folder where WMP looks for music I think, so why doesny iTunes do the same?

So far i dont find iTunes easier than WMP, as some friends said it would be.

thanks

iTunes files are stored in a folder called iTunes, which is inside your music folder. When you start iTunes it loads your music library from that folder.

Thanks for that. So I have quite a lot of music files and folders in My Music; do I have to manually drag them to the iTunes folder?

thanks

No, the tunes will be added to your itunes library when you make playlists and add tunes to your iphone.Just leave the music where it is in your My Music folder and add what you want to your phone.
