Can't move any tracks from limewire folder in itunes. (help plz)
Hey guys, Awsoem forum! THank god this type of thign exists! :)

My major problem is that i can't move any tracks out of the limewire folder in my itunes to other playlists or to my ipod etc.

Usually I can just click and drag a song...or copy....but the tracks won't budge.

I can still move tracks that I laoded into itunes myself fro mcd's etc....

Help is GREATLY appreciated!

Thank you!

That's because the LW folder in your iTunes is only a playlist... you'll have to add the files from your saved folder into the iTunes library, then they'll go to your iPod:D

To find your saved folder, go into LW library, tools > options > saving & you'll see the location. If you click on saved files within the library & then Explore... your saved folder will open for you! Just add to the iTunes library from this folder & things should be good:)

Where it says Folder: look in the text field & that's the location of your saved folder.

Within the library, click on Saved files (left hand column), now click explore. Your saved folder should open... is all your music there? It should be! If I've confused you, there's a lot of info here
Transferring music to iPod & iTunes

same problem
I am having the exact same problem and can't seem to figure it out. I have ALWAYS been able to simply drag and drop files from LW into iTunes, but now, all of the sudden, when I do, nothing happens. Please help me figure this out. It is driving me nuts0:confused:
Thanks in advance.

I don't know why iTunes would suddenly stop letting you drag & drop! Try adding files this way instead:

Within LW tools > options > saving. Within the text field is the location of your saved folder (by default C:\Documents and Settings\your name\Shared).

Now within iTunes, file > add file to library. You'll see 'look in', go through & find your saved folder. When your songs appear, click on a song > open. That song will be transferred to your iTunes library! To move a block of files, click on the first file, hold down the shift key & click on the last file. Now click open & the block will be transferred to iTunes:)
