Can you open an MP3 in iTunes without it automatically adding it to your library?

What is the point of the default MP3 folder if it never scans it for new MP3s? Is there a way to get it to?

I believe it automatically adds the mp3 to the library and I think it only searchs for mp3s the first time you run it.

xyber is right, and as itunes isn't scriptable you can't make it do it. I don't like it either, but still I love it.
oh, did you guys notice the g-force plugin? It's really cool.

I recently acquired a G4/400 AGP and wanted to add CD-R capabilities to the machine.

My question:

Is it worth purchasing a PCI-based SCSI adapter card to utilize an existing Yamaha 4260? I use Jam 2.6 a lot to convert bootleg MP3s back to audio CD to eliminate gap between tracks.

I noticed under 10.1, iTunes also offers the same ability but under 10.1, I've been reading that there are some problems with SCSI support.

Would it be better to just purchase a Firewire CD-R and avoid hassles?

Cheers.

Rather than get a SCSI card to keep compatibility with your older burner, I'd just go for a new FireWire burner...
