    sounds simple right? i just found out about vuze and for some reason i can put the files that i have downloaded into my itunes music library but when i try to drag and drop the files into my iphone, theres that big "circle/slash" icon. i have converted my selections to ACC and still nothing. i am unsure if this is a formatting issue, im still new to this. but im hoping that one of yoos has run into this before and can enlighten me on the subject.
    any feed back is appreciated, even if the feed back is "sorry cant do it" at least ill know. ive asked around about this and have done some research and havent really gotten any straight forward answers so i figured id ask yoos guys.

    thanks uh bunch,
    totalvoid.

    Hmmm...when you say you're trying to drag songs to your iPhone icon (on the left, under 'Devices') it sounds like you're trying to manually manage the songs and videos. In other words, you're just dragging & dropping items into the phone, versus allowing the iPhone itself to do an entire sync with iTunes.

    Have you tried synching the phone with iTunes? That might be something to try.

    If you're wanting to pick and choose individual songs/videos to drag to your phone (versus a sync with iTunes), you'll have to make sure the "Manually manage music and videos" checkbox is checked -- this is found in the 'Summary' tab for your iPhone. If this is not checked, you will not be able to drag & drop anything into your phone.

    Hope this helps.

    i totally agree with you on that. im only getting digital files for vinyl records that i already own... i used to have a program that would convert the records to mp3 (magix) but it broke... so yeah. im definately supporting the artists that i believe in and love, im just bummed that magix took a **** on me!
