Default Itunes not letting me copy entire folders into my library?

I recently formatted my HDD, so I copied all of my Ipod songs onto an external drive, and then copied that onto the computer HDD, and now when I drag the folders (within folders) of songs, itunes doesnt add them to the library, I have to only add them as the actual song files...

is there a setting missing?
