Why can't I add new mp3s to my Itunes library?

A month or so ago, I became unable to add new tracks to Itunes. Whether I try to add via clicking on the track, dragging into iTunes, or adding the track from the file menu, the result is the same. I have also tried changing my preferences so that the track does not copy to the iTunes library when it is added; still the same. When I try to add a track, my hard drive just spins and makes a little clicking noise and iTunes goes into "not responding" mode, with the spinning pinwheel.

It sounds like a hard drive problem, but I am able to play tracks via other apps from this hard drive while this is happening. I am also able to add tracks to the hard drive without any problems. The drive is a LaCie Porsche 160gb.
My music library is also quite large, about 130gb. I am on a MacBook, running OS 10.4.9.
