Yet another method: drag and drop
Authored by: jfaughnan on Dec 11, '05 09:36:16PM

I've commented a few times on this hint, but I've just discovered another approach - a very simple one.

After adding new tunes to the 'master user', switch to the 'client user'. Then click on the folder containing all the music (needs to be accessible, I keep my music folder in my Public folder, so all have read-only access).

Drag and drop this folder to the left side of iTunes (client user session) - as if creating a Play List and adding tunes simultaneously.

iTunes compares the dropped folder to the current library and only adds references to new music. Then view by date added and add to playlists as desired. It's very fast.
