    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.

    Uh, this discussion is about adding songs to playlists by draaging them from Music to a playlist.

    Draging music from the library and droping it into a playlist.

    OK ... workaround until the reason is cleared:

     

    Mark the song or songs you want to add. Rightclick and choose from context menu "Add to playlist"

    This just happened to me out of the blue on both of my computers. I managed to copy/paste what I needed but what a pain. Interesting how there is no input from Apple regarding this. Not even a "we are aware of this issue and are working on fixing it" message.

    I just had the same problem. You gotta check the "Manually manage music and videos" box.

    This has nothing to do with playlists and this option is only availble for a connected iDevice.

    I have a similar problem.  I can't drag and drop songs to or from playlists or the library. I cant reorder them by simple dragging.

     

    i'm on a 2.66 GHz Quad-core Mac tower. OSX 10.6.8. with Itunes 10.5 and I am using Wacom tablet.

     

    Is it that the wacom drivers are outdated ? Does anyone know the correct drivers for Wacom to upgrade to?

  • ponyism Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have a wacom tablet and have updated drivers and still the problem persists. The only way i have found around it, is to use a mouse when using itunes. As it works with a mouse and not with a tablet.

    I suddenly am having the same problem after upgrading to iTunes 5. I'm using a Wacom tablet. Their website is not working to download new drivers, so I'm stuck. But,

     

    I have discovered a FUN WORKAROUND!

     

    Just drag the Wacom mouse really fast over a song or selected group of songs and click in the middle of your stroke. iTunes lets you drag the songs then!

  • IronyMike Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    yeah still stuck myself. your work around is hilarious. my coworker got a nice chuckle. APPLE PLEASE TO FIX THIS!

    I too have this problem and have done for some time, although I haven't really seen it as a problem or not realy noticed it until wanting to sort a playlist today.

     

    The problem is drag& drop one or more tracks from playlist to playlist - it wont.

    And also can't drag tracking in a playlist to reorder.

     

    Basically, it won't drag&drop - the highlighted track doesn't even show as being 'picked up', so not even

     

    I've tried all the various suggestions for this seen on many sites...

    • ensure shuffle is off
    • sort by first (number) column
    • select all and create a new playlist
    • duplicate playlist
    • turn of various options etc. or change them
    • remove remotes (I don't remember assigning one)
    • Repair Disk Permissions ( also checked what is was correcting and iTunes didn't figure)

     

     

    Nothing has worked, about to try a restart after another repair!

  • DavidFerrington Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    And a reboot seems to have fixed it! I can drag&drop as you'd expect now.

    http://www.wacom.com/CustomerCare/Drivers.aspx?model=Intuos3&os=
