You don't have anything in the location row so that's probably why.

I would just re-import your files by going up to file - import - import folder.

I don't use iTunes. Might be a problem with your iTunes library xml.

Do they play in iTunes?  Like I said it could be a problem with the iTunes library xml but you'd have to move or delete your iTunes database and force iTunes to make a new empty one.

I would just skip iTunes all together and import the music folder on your hard drive into Rekordbox directly but that's just my personal opinion.

I import everything into Rekordbox directly by using file - import - import folder - and selecting the folder with my music and music videos.

I used to use iTunes but it's too bloated these days.  Rekordbox isn't as powerful as iTunes with the smartplaylists but I hope someday it'll get better.

Your music folder should already be highlighted in the dialog box that pops up so just click ok and it should import your iTunes music directly into Rekordbox's collection

That's your hard drive files that are showing so you don't wanna delete those but you can hide them in the prefs

You don't need to convert them; if iTunes will play them, so will rekordbox... as long as they are DRM-free.

Have you imported them TO rekordbox using the Sync Manager or iTunes bridge?
