I have my iPhone 5 plugged in, music is to be handled manually, music share is off on the phone so that I can drag mjsic over to the phone (or at least I thought I should be able to) but when I drag songs over the music shows up as gray in iTunes, but does not show up on the phone itself.

    On the iPhone summary screen you have two options. Sync specific albums by music tab or you can sync all but let the iTunes main library sync checked specific songs. To do the latter:

    - on the iTunes, go to iPhone summary screen

    - check the box "sync checked songs and videos"

    - Apply

    - on the music tab of the summary, select all songs. Same for the rest of your tabs. Apply.

    - on iTunes main under your music, check what songs you want to sync. Even videos.

    - on the iPhone summary screen hit sync.
