I know I'm being a pain in the butt but please put me out of my misery.
I'd like to help but I've never had that problem and can't duplicate that now. TBH I suggested Fre:ac in part because it's about has the simplest interface I know on a decent encoder. I can't find any setting that would prevent drag and drop of entire folders. I download the zip file, unzip it then start freac.exe. Once it's open I set the output format and folders and drop in the folders with the files. I just used that to add a couple thousand fies from a single folder. It took a few minutes with no outward signs of activity but they all loaded.
Have you tried the File...Add context menu? That has an option to add folders all at once. Drag and drop works fine for me but that might help? One other thought, none of these files are DRM protected are they? Fre:ac doesn't work on DRMed files.
