I previously had no issues dragging the apps to rearrange them in the app management pane in iTunes, but suddenly I can only select them, I can't move them at all. Anyone else come across this issue?

24" iMac, 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6), iPod Touch 2G

    I've got that too - It seemed to start when I wanted to drag some audiobooks to my ipod touch, then i noticed I couldn't drag music (this is within itunes itself - I can select items, but there's no visual feedback of dragging, it items don't move with the cursor, in essence, there's no dragging!) Now I've noticed that I too can't drag and drop apps! (this inability probably all came about at once) I'm wondering if you've retained the two other drag and drop features I've lost?

    i also cannot drag content to my ipod now.

    i have the manual manage box ticked.

    this is driving me nuts!!!!

    all i get is the circle with the line through cursor.

    That only works for music and videos. Apps must be synced.

    what I had in mind is the "Organize Your Home Screens" as seen here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/features/#itunessyncing

    draggin app icons between screens doesn't work, even to the point to initiating the drag. I can only get as far as highlighting the icon. same goes for music and audiobooks, etc

    I'm having the same problem, I cannot click anything on the applications pane. I can't chose witch apps to sync and I can't rearrange my homes screens. I turned off the app store in restrictions settings a bit before this happened but have since re-enabled the app store, to no avail.

    We know this, but thanks for trying to help. We manually manage music and videos, but not able to drag, even using the sidebar. For the apps, to organize, within iTunes, we drag and then sync, but again, not able to drag.

     

    Anyone know why this question is showing green as is its been resolved when it hasn't been?

    I don't know if this solves your problem, but it turned out my external hard drive that I had my iTunes on was formatted in a way that doesn't work with iTunes correctly.  iTunes let me use it, and for some reason it worked but with wierd problems like dragging, etc. If you are using an external hard drive, try moving your files off it temporarily onto another hard drive, and then reformat your hard drive. I reformatted to Mac OS Journalled Case Sensitive. I moved my files back. I had to wipe everything off my iTunes and drag all the files back in though, so to make sure. (There might be a better way than what I did for that last step, but my method does work).
