    Problem dragging music from Vista to iTunes (Vista Home Premium)

    First time lounger looking for help. We have 4 users on one PC at home. I keep music files in the Public Music directory so all users have easy access. When I drag selected music files from Public Music folder into a particular user's iTunes library, Vista sometimes creates a new music folder within the Public Music folder and moves the selected songs that were just dragged into iTunes to that new folder. This messes up other users iTunes libraries that were pointing to those selected songs in their original folders.

    Any idea's what I can do to prevent Vista from spontaneously doing this? I appreciate any help I can get. Thanks.

    I am dragging with a left click. Haven't tried it with right click so don't know if I will be given different options.

    I just tried the right click method of dragging. Vista did not give me any options and still moved the file I selected into a new folder that was spontaneously created.

    Have you tried transferring the files from a user's folder and not the Public folder ??

    I'm not sure what will happen as I've never seen this issue before and am really just grasping at straws.
