iTunes does not handle flac files. You have to convert the files to Apple Lossless, ACC, or MP3 to listen to the files. That may be the problem.

iTunes WAS playing the flac files. But all of a sudden its not even going into iTunes PERIOD. Not even loading into it when i double click.

i did some (minor) research.
easiest way is to convert flac into wav and convert the wav into apple lossless.

Or use this Fluke

That sounds like a great/easier way to do that, but unfortunately thats not my problem right now.

The tracks in uTorrent (xTorrent) automatically transfer to my iTunes when i double click on the downloaded tracks. This is only working for one show. When I double click on tracks from other shows, it opens iTunes, but no track uploads.

Control/click to move your files into your converter program, then put the converted files into your iTunes.  iTunes isn't designed to handle flac files.  I don't understand why *anything* is playing.
