How can I transfer music from galaxy s4 to itunes

Whenever I connect my phone to my computer via usb, I can drag the songs I want to transfer to iTunes and then transfer them to my ipod at the same time while phone is still connected. The songs play fine on my ipod, but once everything is disconnected and I try to play the songs on my laptop from itunes, it says "unable to locate file" . I am so frustrated by this. Any help would be much appreciated!

Re: How can I transfer music from galaxy s4 to itunes

Welcome to Android Central! What kind of music tracks are you moving to iTunes? Are they mp3 files that are stored locally on the phone? How are you moving them to iTunes? Are you dragging and dropping them to your iTunes Music folder?

If you're using a PC, the best approach would be to create the proper folder in iTunes Music on your computer's hard drive (using the standard folder hierarchy of Artist>Album>Song), then drag and drop the music to the appropriate folder. Then in iTunes on your computer, you'll need to go to the File menu and Add Folder. Search for the folder you just created, and select it. iTunes will then add the music to your library. I'm not sure why iTunes doesn't add it automatically.
