SHARING MUSIC IN ITUNES and ADDING MUSIC TO THE ITUNES LIBRARY
First off, make sure you have iTunes, installed. It is free from Apple.com
where Apple also have links to useful Featured Tutorials
Note that sharing your Frostwire Library in iTunes (which does not involve adding tunes to the iTunes library) is not an option in Frostwire 5
In most later versions of Frostwire 5.1.x and later, in Windows or Mac, downloads can be added to the iTunes library and a playlist called "FrostWire" automatically by enabling Tools > Options > iTunes > Importing.
This causes slightly odd behaviour at times and may find re-added items under certain circumstances, so if you choose this method do keep an eye on your iTunes library to make sure you do not have double entries there. If you you choose not to use this method the next suggestion works well.
If you are using Frostwire 5.2.x or later in Windows or Mac, right click on seeding transfers in the Transfers window, and choose send audio to iTunes. This can also be done in the Library Audio view or if you select "Show In Library" from the Transfer window.
. Files added this way will also show in an automatically created FrostWire playlist in iTunes.
Note that the right click > send to itunes might not work on some Windows installations in 5.2.11, in which case select Explore or Show in Folder and add to iTunes from the folder. This is not ideal but should be fixed in 5.2.12.
Files can also be dragged to other applications or locations from the Frostwire Library if they are in the Finished Downloads view or Audio, Video etc. Not currently possible from the Playlist view.
The following largely applies to Frostwire 4.21.8 and earlier.
Please note that a Shared Playlist
will show in iTunes carrying the name of your shared folder shown in Frostwires iTunes > Sharing Option, .....
Frostwire is enabled to share files with iTunes in Frostwire> Tools > Options > iTunes > Sharing,
iTunes is enabled to look for Shared Libraries in iTunes > Preferences or Tools > Options >Sharing .
If you discover that previously shared songs have disappeared from this list after closing Frostwire, you should share your Frostwire saved folder; the location of which is given at Frostwire > Tools > Options > Saving > Save Folder. You should share this folder at Tools > Options > Sharing > Add.
To add songs automatically to iTunes library, for loading onto an iPod or burning, using Windows
please do the following:
Click on Audio under Media Type
C:>Users>(your PC name)>Music>iTunes>iTunes Media>Automatically Add To iTunes
Your songs should automatically appear in iTunes now when you download this point forward. Hope this works for you too.

Manually adding your tunes to the iTunes Library for loading an iPod etc.
can be simply done for Windows users using the most recent Frostwire versions. Select the songs in the Frostwire Library and simply drag them into itunes, and they will be added to the iTunes library. Also ... See The YouTube Video Here

The following should help if that does not work for you:
To load an iPod using iTunes (which is the usual and recommended way) or burn with iTunes, you must add the tunes to your iTunes library. Drag the files from their folder which is usually the save or download folder, (NOT the listings in the Frostwire library) into iTunes Library, or a playlist that you have set up in iTunes EDIT: (but not to the shared section of iTunes), OR go to iTunes Menu>file>add to library.
If iTunes is set as your default player, you can also double click on the files in the save/download folder, and they will be added to the iTunes Library. PLEASE NOTE you can not drag songs from the Frostwire Library. If you do you will get a strange error message about podcast URLs. You must drag or add the tunes from their folder. This is most likely the Frostwire save folder, the location of which can be found in Frostwire>tools>options>saving>basic>save folder. Alternatively you can select a file in the Frostwire Library, click "explore", and you will be taken to the file's folder.
You can choose whether to create another copy of the file in the iTunes music folder at iTunes>preferences/options>advanced>general>copy files.......
The above holds for Windows Users if you want to add your tunes to the iTunes Library, load tunes on an iPod or burn through iTunes.
Mac users can choose to have files added automatically to iTunes.
Songs can be played in iTunes, without adding to the library by going to Frostwire's tools>options>iTunes and enable Sharing (You may also need to check your iTunes Preferences: sharing>look for shared libraries [I think]) and your Limewire Library should appear as <yourname>'s FrostWire Tunes under "shared" in the iTunes source list. This way they will play in iTunes but not load on an iPod or burn through iTunes.
ADDING TUNES TO iPOD
Adding Tunes to ipod: Once your songs are in the iTunes library, plug in your iPod and it will show up in the source list in iTunes and you will need to select options from the resulting iTunes page. It is always safer .. if you already have items on your ipod from another computer, for instance, to not choose sync but to manually manage your music.
iPods can be loaded using other applications. Google for details.
