In iTunes under the File menu choose Add to Library... and select the songs you want to add to iTunes. When iTunes is done adding the files, sync your iPhone with iTunes on your PC.

That's all there is to it.

  • I've done the same but my copied songs are not showing when i click on iPod icon in my iphone.

    When your iPhone is attached, in iTunes click on the name of your iPhone in the left column. A series of tabs (sort of) will appear on the right, with with "Summary" tab selected by default. Click on the "Music" tab, check the "Sync Music" checkbox, and choose "Entire music library." Sync again (the button in the lower-right) and you should be set. Commented Apr 3, 2011 at 19:08
  • There's also a way to do it wirelessly: osxdaily.com/2012/12/09/…

  • Are you sure that iTunes "copies" the files and doesn't modify the original files in the original location?

    Dreadful usability again from Apple. Cannot believe drag and drop wasn't sufficient.

With Catalina macOS (1.15+) iTunes is gone.

You will need to open Music application & click under the File and chose Import...

After the mp3 files are imported; you can sync music via Finder by clicking on your iPhone's icon within a Finder's sidebar. Then click Music & check Sync music onto My iPhone.
