Cannot Copy Songs from Itune to iPhone

Hi,

I recently "relocated" my iTune Music Folder to a NAS by the following steps:

1. Copy the existing iTune Music Folder to NAS.
2. Selected all the songs in iTune Library and deleted them
3. in the Preference->Advanced, changed the iTune Music Folder to the NAS location.
4. In File -> Add to Library, selected the NAS folder

The relocationed seemed working because when I selected a song and Get Info, the location shown is the NAS.

However, I can no longer drag and copy songs from the iTune library to my iPhone - that is no plus sign when I drag over to iPhone.

Your help is very much appreciated.

You didn't mention whether this was on Windows or Mac, but if the former I have discovered that I will have this issue unless I assign the NAS a drive letter.

Have you done that already or are you just connecting via a standard network path?

There's a BBC blog today that suggests it's not as easy to make iTunes work with NAS as you would expect.

It is a Mac.

I was thinking to "create a new library" by means of Library->Consolidate, which would force Itune to start all over again.

I will try this tonight.
