......Still having problems with the editing of songs....
Someone in another forum told me to do the following, which I did, but that did not work either.....I still can not edit songs in the itunes library.
Ok, this is what I did.
I Plugged in the OL' ipod, Under the SUMMARY TAB, and under the OPTIONS TAB, I changed what I had, which was "SYNC ONLY CHECKED SONGS AND VIDEOS" [B]to MANUALLY MANAGE MUSIC AND VIDEOS"[/B]
THEN underneath that, "OPEN ITUNES WHEN IPOD IS CONNECTED", "AND MANUALLY MANAGE MUSIC WERE [U]BOTH CHECKED[/U]."
THEN - I went back into my Win Explorer Main Music folder,and under PROPERTIES, I unchecked the READ-ONLY Box, hit APPLY, then OK, then I went back into the itunes library and tried to edit a few songs, but they are all still greyed out and not editable.
I went back into the WIN EXPLORER main Music folder and checked to see if the REA-ONLY was still unchecked, but it automatically reverted back to READ ONLY.
I recently upgraded from XP to Windows 7, it's a little daunting for me, since i haven't grasped all the new format as far as changing administrators rights to files, if this has anything to do with this....maybe there's something on the ipod itself, since I restored all factory settings, then loaded all the music back onto the ipod via the library.
Windows7 64 BIT / SP1 / Self-built PC
Latest ITunes version 10.4
80GB Classic 5th GEN IPOD
When I went into the MUSIC folder when Ipod was connected, the SYNC MUSIC is not enabled, because I don't want to replace all music on ipod to be replaced by the library, which a pop up window told me that would happen..I just finished loading ALL my music onto all my playlists already, which took along time.
What am I missing?? Thanks for any help!

Right-click on your main iTunes folder and click Properties, then go to the Security tab and click Advanced. If necessary grant your account and SYSTEM full control of this folder, subfolders and files, then tick the option to replace permissions on child objects which will repair permissions throughout the library. This is the XP dialog but Windows 7 shouldn't be too different.
If it won't let you change the permissions use the Owner tab to take ownneship from an account with administror privileges.

Thank you ,but I'm sorry that I don't see what you see.
First, I looked at all the tabs on the itunes Library. I don't see PROPERTIES, the only thing close to that is PREFERENCES, but nothing comes close to what you have decribed in the image you posted. I only wished I can see that. I plugged in the ipod ,signed in and I still looked at each and every tab, but no PROPERTIES anywhere. Where else could this be? Thanks

Well again I feel frustrated this can not be rectified.
I went into BOTH my main Music Folder that has all my genres,and also into my iTunes music folder, clicked on Security and Advanced, edit> changed ADMIN and SYSTEM,and everything else to Full control, the Apply, then OK, rebooted my computer, opened back up iTunes and I still can not edit any of the Information.
I hate to say this but restoring the ipod and load all the songs back up might fix this? Thanks

Did you tick the box for Replace permission entries on all child objects...?
Apropos your issue with 4 out of 5 authorizations this can happen if you've rebuilt/upgraded your computer without deauthorising iTunes first. When you get to 5 you can wipe them all and start over, but then you can't do that again for another year.

Although I do appreciate your help, could you be more specific on what location I would find that
"Replace permission entries on all child objects?" I went back to the iTunes folder, went back to SECURITY,and could not see that heading anywhere. Is it in itunes or Windows Explorer>iTunes folder?
This is what I have gouing on>
In itunes >
OPTIONS - Sync only Checked Songs and videos.
MUSIC - SYNC MUSIC - Selected Playlists, Artists, Albums,and genres.
ONLY PLAYLISTS are checked what I want on my iPod, the other three are NOT checked, the reason is when I sister got her iTouch and we hooked itup tpo my computer to transfer songs,(I did not want to put all my 80GB onto her 16GB..for very Obvious reasons) So I created a secondary playlists for her, ie: classic rock2,jazz2,oldies2,etc., which now displayed in my GENRE folder, and was displayed on my ipod. I don't want all those catagories and sub-catagories (ie: Blues,Blues Rock/R&B,Chicago Blues,Classic roots Reggae..etc.....Only the main genres I have named and tagged on all my music, to keep it simplified, like Jazz, Classic Rock,Blues,Bluegrass,Oldies,etc.
With the amount of songs I have on this ipod, I did not think I would have to check each and every item on the remainder three windoews....GENRE,ARTIST,and ALBUM, so I just checked the PLAYLIST window.

Well, after posting the help messages, I went diggingthrough both my itunes folder on my (C) drive, and then the Music Folder on my(F) Storage drive where I keep all my music files and then went into securityand in each line, I made FULL CONTROL, APPLY, then went back into iTunes afterplugging my ipod in and clicked on MANUALLY MANAGE TUNES.
I don't know which did it, but now I can edit the songs. To answer yourquestion, I was able to play the songs, but just couldn't edit any of themuntil now. Thanks for your Reply!
