check if you have read & write permissions for your music folder. in finder, right-click on it and +get info+. unlock the little padlock (you may have to enter your admin password) and change the permission settings. next, click on the little gear-shaped icon and +apply to enclosed items+ like so
you may also give everyone read & write access.
the important part is to *apply to enclosed items* !
also, check this KB article.
Thanks for that.
But how does this all happen in the first place? I never had to that that before but after the update of either iTunes or Mac OS to 10.6.4 it all started happening. Or is my file sharing with Windows causing all this and every time I access the iTunes library on the network on my WIndows computer and then back on my Mac I will have to do this?

does that mean one of the above fixed your issue ?

i'm not sure, but my guess is the update(s) overwrote/changed some settings.

my Mac heart tells me winsloth is to blame for all evil in this world
and every time I access the iTunes library on the network on my WIndows computer and then back on my Mac I will have to do this?
doubtful. the changes should stick (at least until the next upgrade)
happy computing ...
Well...your suggestion worked unfortunately only once. As I assumed, when I open my Mac iTunes library on my Windows through the network and then open it back on my Mac the error message comes up again. That means that I will have to change the permissions settings on my Mac again after accessing the iTunes library on my Windows. That doesn't make any sense to me. After checking the permissions settings for the library (after accessing it on Windows) my Mac username is not in the list anymore but the username I used on Windows for accessing the library. So I have to manually add it again. That shouldn't happen in my opinion. Does anybody have an idea what is going on here?
I answered and solved this problem. My name was "Olivier Herrbach". Search by User …
At that time, "eww" for example told me that, if nobody had answered to my questions,
that was because it was not a frequent case (I don't remember exactly what he said).
Search "eww" too, or "locked disks".
If you don't find my solution, post it to me. I hope having helped you.
