Lightroom 3.5, Mac OSX 10.7.2 (64-Bit), German:
When trying to move a photo from one folder to another in LR I get no error. But when I select multiple photos and try to drag them to another folder, I see the progress bar but only the first photo is moved to the new location while the others seem to remain in their original folder.
In the photogrid I can see both "versions" of the file but LR says it only has for each photo only one version for which it can find the file. Note that this is for the first to be moved photo the file in the new folder and for the others the version in the old folder.

I suspect that you cannot move the files from different folders to another one in the way you want. If you are in Library module turn off 'include sub-folders'. Take a look at Julieanne Kost 'Complete Picture Episode on file moving. http://tv.adobe.com/watch/the-complet...
Quite illuminating.
