Hello, having issues that past posts don't seem to cover.

Backround:
-Have all music on external harddrive
-Library was originally from XP computer
-Bought new computer with Vista Home Premium
-Cut/copied library from XP computer to new Vista computer, since then having these issues:

I can only change random things within my library (starratings, playlists, check/uncheck songs) and all music will play. However, I can not make any changes to the music from the "Get Info" window...everything is grey.
Any changes will not transfer over to the ipod (it ends with the "You don't have enough Access Privileges for this operation"), however the play counts/dates will transfer from the ipod over to itunes.
Library is set in the folder for all privledges (read, write, etc). Can't find any reason why this is happening....

Any Ideas???

ipod 4g 30gb Photo, Windows Vista

    Update to issue: When I ran diagnostics, it says Current User is not an Administrator .... Check my account through windows and I am an administrator....so is it talking about being an administrator for itunes? If so where do I change this?

    I'm having the same problem of not being able to edit or add to the song info fields - they all appear grey. How do you access the read/write privileges of the song? Is it done through the Windows settings (control panel) or is it a setting through iTunes?

    *Is it done through the Windows settings (control panel) or is it a setting through iTunes?*
    Neither.
    Select the song file itself, right click - Properties.
    Untick Read Only.

    Thanks. When I select & right click on the song, I do not see the properties option.

    You are viewing the file in Windows Exploder, correct?

    In windows vista you can run any program as an administrator by right clicking the program icon and hitting " Run as an administrator ". I this don't work, then idk.

    Do you mean Windows Explorer? No, I've been doing it by right-clicking the song in the library in iTunes. I'm not sure what you mean by Windows Exploder. Please explain where exactly I should go. Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you need view the file in Windows Explorer and make sure it is not Read Only.
