Step 5 : Such an easy thing! You can import all songs from computer to iTunes through this way. But according to the official website, 'by default, adding items to your iTunes library creates a reference to the file’s current location; the original file remains in the current location unless you select “Copy files to the iTunes Media folder when adding to library.” For information about copying files to the iTunes folder instead of creating references to them, see Change where your iTunes files are stored. If the file is an unprotected WMA file and you have Windows Media Player Series 9 or later installed, iTunes makes a copy of the file and adds it to your iTunes library. The original WMA file remains unchanged. You can’t add protected WMA files or protected WMV files to iTunes.'
