Rsync Command Skips Directories?

I am trying to use Rsync to copy an entire directory from my PC to a server on the same LAN and for some reason my command is not working.

/usr/bin/rsync -vv -e ssh /media/usb/fback/it/* root@fback:/it/
I am copying the contents of everything in the 'it' folder on my external usb drive to the remote 'fback' server under the same directory name. The folder does exist on the remote server.

Here is what I get:

opening connection using: ssh -l root fback rsync --server -vve.L . /it/ 
root@fback's password: 
skipping directory carlos
skipping directory jason
skipping directory mike
skipping directory movies
skipping directory symantec_10.1.7
delta-transmission enabled
total: matches=0  hash_hits=0  false_alarms=0 data=0

sent 8 bytes  received 12 bytes  4.44 bytes/sec
total size is 0  speedup is 0.00
What am I doing wrong?
