    Yes, I have the same problem, I can't drag songs around into playlists and more irritatingly i can't drag songs within a playlist.

     

    I've tried loging in and out of mac and itunes, restarted, I ejected my iphone and i seemed to be able to drag a few times. now I can't drag at all again.

     

    This is a serious pain, as all i want to do is drag songs around in playlists.

     

    Any ideas?

    I have the same issue. I hate it as well! The only way I was able to drag and drop music from my itunes to my iPod was to open my itunes music folder in Finder, and drag and drop the album folder into the iPod playlist that I created. I might see if I can download an old version of iTunes, just to end the aggrivation!

    I'm having the same problem, but it's very intermittent. From what I've seen so far this problem has been around for several years. Why hasn't Apple answered? ***?

    That works for me too.  For single songs, you can right click on the sone/movie/podcast and select "Show in Finder", which saves you from having to hunt for it.

    Is that playlists in the window on the left?

    Why in the world do you have so many playlists?

    Are you duplicating what iTunes already does (in the browser) and making a playlist for every album?

    I can't drag and drop from iTunes 10 either.  And now I can't even copy and paste from iTunes.  To use iTunes I literally have to find the song in my iTunes Library, then copy it, then paste it where I want it.

     

    I'm disabled and have very little use of my hands.  I can't do this more than once or twice before my hands give out.  I've tried right clicking and moving a song to a playlist, but doing this for hundreds of songs is clearly not possible for me.

     

    This has made both iTunes and my playlists completely unusable.

     

    Once again, Apple is making it clear they don't care a bit about you once you've bought their products.

     

    Apple, iTunes is the heart of your empire.  FIX IT!

    Hi,

     

    I'm also still having this problem and have posted numerous times on this over the last few months and it still hasnt been fixed, the only way to get around it is to recreate your library which is a pain as when I have done this not only do you lose new playlists because my HD lost connection to my mac/preferences it decided to consolidate my library and transfer a large section to my Mac....not good! I now also have a problem were when I copy in new items to Music it either creates a playlist or I get a spinning wheel!

     

    Im beyond bored of the new versions of iTunes and I'm thinking of moving to a more stable player as I waste numerous hours recreating library (which is a problem and waste of time) only for it to happen again!

     

    Pointless.

     

    I have also never seen a fix for this problem!

    We had a similar question here a few days back.

     

    Cant drag&drop with iTunes ... will blame iTunes 10.4.1 for that.

     

    The solution was as simple as a pie.

     

    Anyone here with the the "cant drag&drop" issue using a WACOM Tablet?

     

    If so, update.

     

    To all others: iTunes 10.4.1 has NOT disabled the drag&drop on your system.

     

    Try a permission repair (if not using a Wacom or similar) with the Disk Utility.

    I'm not using a Wacom and I have updtaed and have done nothing different.

     

    Permission repair? Disk Utility? Why does that effect it and I have not changed my permissions?

    Right, I'm sure you haven't changed your permissions.

     

    But sometimes during Updates (iTunes is famous for that) some file permissions will get corrupted.

     

    That's why "permission repair" is a known first aid tool if something are wierd in the behavior of your updated software.

    Like Aspirin: If it does not help, it wont hurt.

     

    If you decide to perform a permission repair (recomended) you will get some warnings, aka "could not change permissions on file xyz" Ignore them. Its from the fact that you do this with the runnig OS X, the tool cant change permissions on files in use by the OS.

     

    Before starting the repair, close all programms and open files.

     

     

    Good luck

    Hi lupunus,

    The newer drivers for my Wacom tablet did the trick for me.

     

    Thanks so much.

    Arnaud,

     

    instead of posting a simple "me too" without any helpful information in a thread of another one, with another computer, another configuration, other software installed and so on, ask your own question with your own information about YOUR problem, your system and your configuration.

     

    As my miracle witchcraft crystal ball is out to hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry at the moment for oil change, I cant look in your system and configuration for now.

     

    NO INFORMATION = NO HELP

  • NathanvD Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hey lupunus,

    I've updated to the latest drivers for my Wacom Tablet and done a permissions repair with Disk Utility.

    iTunes now lets me drag and drop one song (before again not allowing me to drag and drop at all) after a random number of attemps to do so with various different songs, where as before I couldn't drag and drop at all.

    Seems to have helped just not to the extent I was hoping for, is there anything else I could try?

     

    I'm running Mac OS X version 10.5.8 and iTunes 10.4.1 using a Wacom Bamboo Fun CTE-450 driver version 5.2.4-4

  • ponyism Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I did the same thing, still doesn't work. The only way around it I've found is to use a mouse and not the tablet when I want to drag stuff around in itunes.
