Hi,

I have about 6000 music folders in an external hard drive which I wish to drag and drop into into my iTunes.

However, if I "select all" folders, it is not possible for me to drag and drop all folders into iTunes. Whenever I attempt this, all folders chosen de-select and I am left with only one folder able to be dragged and dropped.

I can manually drag and drop each folder into iTunes, and have been doing so, but for obvious reasons this is not my preferred solution.

Anyone had a similar problem or no of a solution. I'm guessing there must be an obvious answer?

Many thanks,
QUOTE Thanks

Sounds like you might be clicking more than once after doing the Select all.

Do a select all, left click and hold, then drag to iTunes. Do NOT left click, release then click and hold.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I think you're right (or should that be "left"). Also, I wasn't clicking and holding down on the icon. Stupid me.

Thanks, you've saved me a lot of time.
