Open a Finder window.
Go to \Music\ folder.
Right click the \iTunes\ folder and *Get info*.
Go to the *Sharing & Permissions* tab.
Make sure yo username has *Read & Write* privileges.
Directly below are + and - signs next to a little gear with a down arrow.
Click the gear and select *Apply to enclosed items*.
Open iTunes then try again.
Chris is correct in what he is saying. I had exactly the same problem. I think it may be because I copied some music from my old computer onto my new iMAC.
The key thing I failed to do was to click on the padlock and then you have the options on the gear available, otherwise they are greyed out. Once I had pushed the changes to everything in my iTunes folder this resolved the issue.
Not all permissions are altered as stated above. If you are still having problems (probably with just the odd CD which was on your list before) you need to look in your iTunes Music folder (homeuser/Music/iTunes/iTunes Music) within the iTunes folder. There you need to look for a copy of the CD or mp3 file you are trying to upload. If it is already there, highlight it and 'get info' where you will see that despite unlocking the permissions, the file permission for 'staff' (or some other user which you may have defined) is greyed out and locked to 'No Access'. If this is the case, simply delete the whole folder for that CD then try uploading again.
Worked for me after trying many times to change folder permissions on each and every file without success.
