beaTunes' folder-based library is based on the concept that all
files within a base-folder are in a library.
So to add a song to the library, one has to move the files in
question into said base-folder or one of its sub-folders. On OS X,
this is most easily done with Finder . Then, to tell
beaTunes that there are new files, hit File ->
Alternatively, you can drag songs into beaTunes. But this does
not trigger the simple addition of the existing files—instead
it copies the files you dragged into the base folder, using artist
and album names as folder structure.
