Songs imported from CD do not appear in library (v 10.0.1)

by riddle / October 24, 2010 5:25 AM PDT

When I import songs from a CD, the songs are not appearing under Music in iTunes.

The track info is properly displayed for the mounted CD itself and the songs are correctly imported (green checkboxes appear, the MP3 files are placed in the correct folder under "Music/iTunes/iTunes Music", and the MP3 files are playable in Quicktime).

I've tried re-importing the songs in iTunes using the File > Add to Library function, but no luck. This has happened with multiple CDs.

Songs that I have bought through Amazon were successfully imported.

Is this an iTunes 10.0.1 bug? I haven't successfully imported a CD since I upgraded.

Is my library corrupt? Is there a way to rebuild it?

Thanks for any suggestions.

iTunes 10.0.1
Import settings: MP3 encoder, high quality (160kbps), use error correction
Mac OS X 10.6.4
MacBook Pro

This is an identified issue...

It appears iTunes 10 was released with bad code making it impossible to import CDs. You can at least see the CD (without all the tracks and album info coming through) by disabling "Automatically retrieve CD track names from the Internet". This is hardly a permanent fix though, as you will have to manually put the album info in and then import to iTunes.

Jershie, thanks. I searched the forums before posting, honest!

For what it's worth, the songs I imported from CD the other day have magically healed themselves and I can now see them, no idea why. I haven't yet tried importing more.
