    On my mac I just got done running a repair disk permissions on my Macbook because my Macbook wouldn't start but now it started to work again. Then I get on and my files won't drag. I want to put my new songs from purchased on iTunes to a playlist but I can't because I can't drag any files. I called Apple and the help I got didn't have much knowledge on this problem and we couldn't resolve it. I need help!

    Me Too, Then Kaboom!

    I had this issue with my iPhone.

    Tried deleting a movie that was on it, then boom, it worked!

    Don't know if that was it or not but wasn't following a strict methodology, try deleting something from your iPod then giving it another go.

    Good luck.

    Fixed

    I found the problem. This all happened from installing the new mac os x 10.5.4 software. So i reinstalled and it works.

    I have exactly the same problem on my iMac, also running 10.5.4... I've just restored the permissions and now I can't drag and drop, or copy and paste selected text.

    My question: if I re-install Mac OS, will I have to re-install all my software, too? Or will my environment remain unchanged?

    Thanks!

    Thanks, but the most important question was whether a re-installation will keep my environment as it is, or will I have to start installing all my software again?
