I can't drop music from my iTunes library onto my iPhone ?

As soon as I grab the album cover I just get the red NO sign ?

Does your iphone show up in itunes?

What did you use to unlock?

And Did you keep itunes open when unlocking?

Is all your music in iTunes library.

Are you downloading the artwork through your iTunes account ?

all music is in a Music folder not in the itunes library.

I do download artwork through itunes but arn't at the mo

It drags fine from a folder for me.

Uninstall/Reinstall iTunes. It should ask if you want it to automatically find music, click yes.

Have you tried adding the folder to your library ?

itunes > file > add folder to library > select folder containing music

Does for me as well. :thumbsup:

I didn't have a problem at all. Never had an iPod, only iPhone.

If the library is correct, have you tried dragging & dropping from a windows folder containing an mp3 on to your iphone in itunes ?
