I recently upgraded to iTunes 9 and now drag-and-drop doesn't work. I used to be able to drag artwork, songs into the trash etc. but now it won't work. I have all the recent software upgrades and that didn't help.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

    what happens if you highlight a tune and hit the back key on the keyboard ?

    Don't know about the other stuff, but the artwork issue is discussed at http://discussions.apple.com/message.jspa?messageID=10560842

    Short answer is that you can still update multiple items at a time, with respect to artwork, as long as you have the file on your system already (so if you drag it from a browser to your desktop, for example, rather than trying to drag it directly from the browser into iTunes).

    that, and if you +ctrl click+ on an image in safari and +copy image+ to the clipboard, you can paste it into the +get info box+ in iTunes. that goes for single or multiple items.

    good computing !
