Itunes drag and drop not working

I"ve been working through iTunes on a PC for years - so I"m embarrassed I can not number this out. As recently as a couple of weeks ago, I might drag and drop movies and also music from Windows Explorer right into iTunes 12.1.0.71- currently it"s not working. Even utilizing the menus for File - Add Documents to the Library isn"t working. Did somepoint change in this release?

I am having the same difficulty via iTunes 12.1.0.71. I have the right to include music no problem yet I deserve to not include MP4 movies using drag and also drop or via the menu. Permissions on the papers are fine, deserve to add the same documents on one more PC, its not an encoding problem, I delete records that were already component of the library and I deserve to not add them ago. They are not going into "Home Movies". Revo Unset up all the iTunes, vr-tab-quebec.com, QuickTime files, folders, & reg keys, brand-new profile, renames the iTunes folder in my music to .old to test still with no luck.. Fully remounted all the software application no luck. This one has actually acquired me confused.

On another test I upgraded an additional PC from 12.1.0.26 to .71 to watch if it was a bug with .71 and it operated fine on the various other PC.

hgpilot2, attempt this test on your PC. See if you have anypoint in your downfill library from iTunes and also attempt to play it. Do you obtain an error "This movie needs Fast TIme, which is not supported by this variation of iTunes"?

I have the latest quick time mounted. I am going to try and also export some reg tricks from a functioning machine and import them.

Have you tried various other methods of including media such as CD import, or copying media files to the Automatically Add to iTunes folder within iTunes Media? Also, what settings to you have actually for these two options in Edit > Precommendations > Advanced?

*

If you have the second of these checked then both drag-and-drop and Data > Add Folder to Library... will certainly be trying to copy media papers into the iTunes Media folder (area on the same choices screen) - a mis-configuration here could cause unexpected results.

It is possible that the folders to which iTunes is trying to include media are either read-just or have actually an problem via preferences. See Turingtest2"s notes on Repair protection permissions for iTunes for Windows for the last.

All the permissions are good, no check out just, reset the parent permissions and so on I grabbed a few reg tricks from a functioning PC via no luck. I suspect it has somepoint to execute via the mp4 codec in the Rapid Time 7.7.6 installation. As much as I hate codec packs I could download one to test the principle. . If you go into the iTunes save and attempt to play a trailer it will certainly error out with "This movie needs Fast Time, which is not sustained by this version of iTunes. Rapid Time 7.7.6 is mounted, reset up, unmounted, reg swept and reset up.. I"ve tried raising the perobjectives, win7 mode etc.

Audio files are not influenced by this, it is strictly MP4 video papers.

Thanks for the reply - ironically, I had a various issue (than the one I posted about) through Outlook no longer syncing to my devices and also did some research study. The same worry that addressed that trouble is identical to the one you simply posted. Unfortunately, it didn"t solve the drag and drop worry - which is for both music and video files (didn"t specify music earlier). At any type of rate - I found an additional write-up regarded Quicktime - apparently I upgraded to the Pro variation a year or so back and also if I uninstall Quicktime, I can"t gain Pro ago - so that may be my following experiment.
