I can't seem to drag and drop music files from my iTunes to my ipod touch generation 5 by using the drag and drop method.


How can I add songs,If I can't use the drag and drop method?

Nothing seems to work.

How should I fix this problem?????!


I am going to travel soon,I need to add new songs before my departure.

Please help me ASAP.


Thanks in Advance.

iPod touch, iOS 6.0.1

    First, confirm that the option to allow manual management of music and videos is still set on the Summary page for the iPod. If that box is not checked, check it and then try your drag-and-drop again.


    Hope this helps.

    Go to iTunes>Help>ITunes>Sync...>Sync Your Device>Sync Your Device Manually and yo will find the instructions.

    If I post them here the photos do not show up.

    On iTunes 11, go to the top left hand corner to the pull down bar. Click "show menu bar". When it appears, go to View--> SHOW SIDEBAR. Then it magically looks like previous versions of iTunes, where you can drag and drop songs, manually delete from iPod, etc. Took me FOREVER to figure out and read through tons of forums. I even tried calling Apple to see if they would walk me through it and they wouldn't help me unless I purchased Apple Care... good thing I didn't. Hope this helps!!!

    Step 1: Click on the Ipod button in the top right corner. (Make sure Ipod/AnyAppleDevice is connected)

    Step 2: In the top right corner again there should be a blue button that says "Done" and then right underneath that there should be something that says "Add to..." click on that.

    Step 3: After you click on that it should look something like this (picture below). So from here is where you can add music to your ipod/itouch/ipad/AnyAppleDevice. Also in the top left corner where it says "Music", you can click on that and change the types of media (Music/Movies/TV Shows/Podcasts/Apps) to add to your device.

    I hope I answered your question with this.

    I Found A Fix        10 Easy Steps


    1st...Add Folder To Library...."My Music"...The Music You Want To Put On Your Ipod Should Be In This Folder*


    2nd...After Folder Is Added, All Your Music Should Show In Itunes


    3rd...Then If You Don't Have Sidebar In Itunes, Hold CTRL+S.....Just Easier With Sidebar


    4th...Click On Your Device


    5th...The Summary Tab At The Top Right Will Be Selected, Click On The Music Tab, Then Click Sync Music


    6th...Select The Box That Says "Entire Music Library" A Box Should Pop Up That Says "Erase And Sync?"


    7th...Click Erase And Sync" Your Music Will Sync To Your Device


    8th...If You Want To Keep Some Songs That Are Already On Your Device...Make Sure They Are In Your "My Music" Folder...Otherwise They Will Be Erased


    9th...This Fix Is Pretty Much For People That Want To Erase Their Music On Their Device And Sync New Music
