Can't Drag Files into the Itunes Library anymore

I was just taking some mp3s from my old computer to my new one and I have been doing this for a few days, yesterday, I couldn't drag anymore songs into the library for some reason. A blue rectangle comes up, but I can't position it over 'Music'. Dragging files into the playlists still work though.
Can anyone help?

  • Can't drag files into the queue window on some computers

    For some reason, on my new desktop and my laptop. I cannot drag files into the Queue window in Media encoder. I  have tried dragging avi's, wav, and mp4. As the files I am dragging hover over the queue window, my mouse turns into the "circle with a line through it" pointer and I cannot add the files that way. I can click the plus sign and then browse to its location to add. I just want to have my drag n drop feature working again... Any ideas why i can on some computers and not others?
    I did try running media encoder as administrator. All my computers are running windows 8.1.

    do you have source patching turned on for audio?

    I uploaded a CD.  It's in my finder -- I can even play it from my finder.  But I can't get it into my iTunes Library, which also means I can't put it on my iPod. Does anyone know how to fix this or a workaround?

  • Does dragging music into the itunes library take up double the space on my hardrive?

    If my music is in my C drive and then i drag and drop it into the music folder in itunes, will that take up double my space on my harddrive?
    Same goes if I delete my music from my C drive, will it still say in itunes?

    There's a setting that determines what happens. In iTunes Preferences, Advanced tab you can choose to leave the music where it was or copy it to the iTunes library. If you choose to leave it where it was then it will not take up double the space. If you choose to copy it to the iTunes library it WILL take up additional space, but you can then delete it from any other locations.
    If you delete music from your C: drive that has already been indexed in iTunes this will confuse iTunes momentarily, but it will recover when you try to play it. The better way to delete music is to delete it in the iTunes library; this will keep things in sync.

  • Does copying files into the iTunes library take up even more space?

    Hi everyone, I recently upgraded to Leopard and decided to give Boot Camp a try so I backed up everything onto my external hard drive using Time Machine and created my partition for Windows. In doing so, I know have an empty iTunes library.
    I just copied everything to my hard drive using Migration Assistant, and although all of the files were locked because I didn't have enough "permission", i fixed that problem. However, when I tried to copy all of my itunes folders into my library, it said that I did not have enough space on my computer for it.
    Dose copying music into the library use even more space than what it already is? I'm confused, because I thought that if i have the music files in my computer already I don't need to make another copy of it to place into iTunes...or maybe I'm just confusing myself.
    Could someone please just let me know how I can add my music into my library? I really don't think this should be so difficult, I'm just terrible with computers. Thanks!

    Under Preferences -> Advanced you can uncheck "copy music to iTunes folder", this should fix your problem.
    Hope this helps.

  • Why is my iPod showing a no sign when i drag music into the itunes library and how do i fix it

    when i go into itunes and in my desktops music library, i open itunes and click on on this ipod. when i want to drag my music it wont let me and show a red no sign. my sister has the same ipod but doesnt have this issue. please help me fix it, this has been going on for a little under a year now.

    Do you have iTunes set up to sync manually? That is required to drag and drop
    iTunes 11 for Windows: Set up syncing for iPod, iPhone, or iPad
    iTunes 11 for Mac: Set up syncing for iPod, iPhone, or iPad
    Do you have any Restrictions set that would prevent syncing those songs? Settings>General>Restrictions

  • How can I put my mp3 files into my iTunes library? Every time I download a song from a website and try to drag it to my library, it won't add on. How can I fix this?

    Back then when I had the older update with iTunes i never had this problem with trying to put my mp3 files of music into my iTunes library. Now it doesn't want to be put into the library. Once I try to drag the music file to the iTunes library nothing happens, it just keeps showing a cancellation sign with my mouse. So how can I fix this?

    Hi William.
    The problem is probably that the index is corrupt and you need to completely re-create it rather than rebuilding individual mailboxes. I have no idea what the situation really is now after having tinkered with the contents of ~/Library/Mail/, though, so the following procedure may or may not work.
    Verify/repair the startup disk (not just permissions), as described here:
    The Repair functions of Disk Utility: what's it all about?
    After having fixed all filesystem issues, if any, and making sure that there’s enough space available on the startup disk (a few GB, plus the space needed to make a backup copy of the Mail folder), try this:
    1. Quit Mail if it’s running.
    2. In the Finder, go to ~/Library/Mail/. Make a backup copy of this folder, just in case something goes wrong -- e.g. by dragging it to the Desktop while holding the Option (Alt) key down.
    3. Locate Envelope Index and move it to the Trash. If you see an Envelope Index-journal file there, delete it as well.
    4. Open Mail. It will tell you that your mail needs to be “imported”. Click Continue and Mail will proceed to re-create Envelope Index -- Mail says it’s “importing”, but it just re-creates the index if the mailboxes are already in Mail 2.x format.
    Note: For those not familiarized with the ~/ notation, it refers to the user’s home folder, i.e. ~/Library is the Library folder within the user’s home folder.

  • I can't import files into the new iTunes 11. Why?

    Since downloading the new iTunes 11, required for the new iOS 7, I can no longer import files into my iTunes library.
    When dragging and dropping the files, nothing happens.
    When importing them via the iTunes menu. Nothing happens.
    I've tried adding them to the iTunes folder "automatically add to iTunes library". Nothing happened.
    I've had the new iTunes for one day, and it doesn't work.
    Can somebody please help me?!

    Sorted. Sorry.
    The files did not have album name / artist name etc... etc.... Had to find them and type them manually.

  • Unfortunately I have deleted my entire itunes library and back up from my computer, is there any way I can copy my ipod nano back onto my computer into the itunes library? and re-download all the tunes I have purchased  from I tunes.

    Unfortunately I have deleted my entire itunes library and back up from my computer, is there any way I can copy my ipod nano back onto my computer into the itunes library? and re-download all the tunes I have purchased  from I tunes.

    Hello bigali,
    Your options are kinda limited. I would use this first:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and ...
    Then check here for the non-purchased items:

    You want to rebuild the library first, then sync the ipod.
    Here is a good idea for when your done:

  • I have my itunes media stored on my external hard drive.  On this external drive I have a folder called "TV shows".  How do I incorporate this folder back into the itunes library?

    I have my itunes media stored on my external hard drive.  On this external drive I have a folder called "TV shows".  I previously cut and pasted itunes TV shows to this folder to free up some space.  How do I incorporate this folder (TV shows) back into the itunes library?

    assuming the copy files ... when adding option is checkmarked in preferences > advanced, drag the folder into an open iTunes window while holding option (⌥).

  • ITunes 11 previously imported a video file, which I loaded on to my iPod Nano, but I removed the file from the iTunes library and now it won't (re-)import the same video. Any thoughts on why not?

    iTunes 11 previously imported a video file, which I loaded on to my iPod Nano, but I removed the file from the iTunes library and now it won't (re-)import the same video.
    I'm using 2 PCs, each with video files (.MP4) on their respective hard drives, and also one external drive with other video files on that I move between the two devices.
    iTunes on one PC will (sometimes!) let me add video content from the external hard drive, which is clearly iTunes-compatible, because I can then copy it over to my iPod Nano. On the other PC, I couldn't load that same video from the external hard drive. But if I copied that same video on to the PC's internal hard drive first, then iTunes would let me import it. That was yesterday - now iTunes is refusing to load any files from the internal or external hard drive(s).
    Any thoughts or suggestions, please?

    So I tried copying the files from the external hard drive to a USB drive. I could import the video files from the USB drive!
    So then I tried importing the same files on to my PC's internal hard drive again. I could import the video files from the internal hard drive!
    So then I tried to import the very same files that failed to load on the very same PC previously. I could now import them!
    I still can't import from the external hard drive directly, though.
    I really don't think I like the process of importing things into iTunes very much... any suggestions on what's causing any of this behaviour would be very interesting.

  • OS Lion: Can't drag attachments into Mail message, Can't drag files into Trash

    Dragging an attachment into a Mail causes a crash adn I have to force quit. I can attach files via the menu, but keep forgetting and have to keep force quitting.
    Also (probably not connected), I can't move files into the Trash... Just get a Moving "xxxx" to "Trash" dialog and the progress bar never changes...
    Have created a new User and the problem persists.
    Any ideas?

    Boot up holding command-r keys into Lion Recovery Volume. Reinstall Lion and it will "install in place" so none of your own data or settings should be effected.

  • Nothing shows up on my Desktop. I can put a file into the Desktop folder but it will not appear on the DTop. The HarDrive is not on the DTop either.

    Nothing appears on my Desktop. The Finder seems to work, so I can place a file into the DTop folder, but nothing appears on the DTop, not even the HarDrive.

    You can temporarily hide the crap on your desktop. Edit the CreateDesktop key in com.apple.finder:
    defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool false && killall Finder
    Then, to get my clutter back:
    defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop -bool true && killall Finder

    Hi, did you try iTunes>File>Import?

  • I can't be the only person who has this problem - when a month ends on a Saturday I can't drag events into the next month and instead have to cut and paste - a real pain in the butt. I thought there was something called "scroll" but I can't find that

    I can't be the only person who has this problem with iCal- when a month ends on a Saturday I can't drag events into the next month and instead have to cut and paste - a real pain in the butt. I thought there was something called "scroll" but I can't find that.

    Yeah that works, but, it involves a click on the event, a click on edit, a click on the date, keystrokes, plus, since you can't see the next month you have to have a calendar in front of you so as to put it to the right date. It's easier just to cut it and advance the month and paste it, once you are in the right month you can move it around helter skelter willy nilly no problems. Although now that you mention it I will try it, maybe it is easier than cut and paste as I don't really care about the date, as long as it gets moved into the right month I can drag it around all I want.
