Make sure your windows permissions are correct.
Go into Windows Explorer. Find this folder
C:\users\ username \My Music\iTunes
Right-click > Properties, and go to the Security tab. Make sure your userID has _full control_ and ownership over that entire itunes folder, and all its /child/subfolders.
You'll have to restart itunes so it will read the new permission settings.
This link has some screenshots of what I'm talking about.
I know that this topic has already been solved. However, the solution given here won't work for me.
You see, I have done what is suggested here... In fact, I didn't have to do anything; I already had the permissions granted for the computer's account for the iTunes library.
I was hoping that I could get another solution for this problem, or tell me if I'm missing something to do...
There is one thing in the permissions box that does not have a check mark inside the box, and that is the one that says 'Special Permissions', but I am not able to check the box to Allow...
Sorry to hear that. There are quite a few rants about that "Special Permissions" box on the internet, and the general consensus is that it's a bad Microsoft bug. Some folks had luck turning off UAC, others by booting into safe mode, others ran an unsigned registry editor script, others clicked on EVERY folder to set permissions, and some of them just gave up and reinstalled Windows 7.
First thing I'd try if it were my PC, is regrant the ownership & full control on a folder one level up.
Next I'd try booting in safe mode and setting the permissions.
Good luck with it!
