Very cool indeed..I just can't understand why Apple don't add this feature to the software!

I guess this would apply if you had Itunes set to manage your collection manally rather than the default automatic managaement.
What I do on the Mac is have Itunes manage my collection. So on the the home drive you have your regular 'Music' folder and then within there you have your itunes music folder....
When you want to insert new music, either just double click it and it will be copied in, or just drag into itunes. Additionally a lot of peer to peer applications on Mac OS X will automatically add the songs to a playlist of your choice.
Its easy to back up too, I just copy the itunes folder and put it on my ipod... when it comes to reformatting, I just drop the folder back into my Music folder and it picks up all the play lists again...

...or you could simply drag the files/directories into iTunes from the Explorer.

Hummm... Easier! Just add the folder back into itunes! (I download music "free music of course!") that I store on external storage. When I do add stuff in there, simply go in itunes file / import folder and add it back in. This will only add the new stuff! the only problem: I should get rid of all the playlists files in my library because they show up everytime I do this operation... holding delete while in the playlist in itunes fixes that in less than a second! so no biggie! but yeah... a "re-scan already imported folders" would make more sense ! but hey... if you would have bought all your music from itunes this wont even be an issue ;) just sayin'
