I recently updated to the latest version of iTunes and now I am unable to drag music individually from my music folder to add to my phone. Before I was able to but now I have to sync my phone but I'll lose some of my music. Is there a way I can drag with latest version of iTunes.

Make sure while your phone is plugged in that the "manually manage music" is checked. Click on your phone on the left hand side, then look at the bottom of the "summary" tab.

Just so that you can see what I'm referring to, here is a screen-shot of my "summary" page. However, mine is not checked(due to having a playlist that I sync and only that playlist, no reason to manually manage). You will just have to check that box and then click "apply" at the bottom-right of the screen. Once that has been done, try dragging-and-dropping the music to your iPhone.

If you only use this computer, then anything it'll erase it you will be able to add it back. However, I would go through all of the other tabs(info especially) to ensure that you are only syncing Music(or applications and whatever else). If "contacts" is selected to sync in the "info" tab, and you don't have any contacts on your computer, they will all be removed from your computer, so make sure that it is unchecked.

If this is the only computer that you use, all of the music should be on that computer.
