Hello all,

I'm getting the following error now when I plug in my iPhone 4 or try to open iTunes:

"The folder 'iTunes' is on a locked disk or you do not have write permissions for this folder". I checked the permissions and they appear to be right, so I'm not sure what to do.

I did not change anything, and all I've done is set up Windows Media Center today. Once I was done trying it out, I started getting these messages from iTunes. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling and making sure I was the folder owner via the other help topics, but I'm still getting this error.

I also can't uncheck the "Read Only" option. I uncheck it, the security applies but its right back on the iTunes folder.

Can you uninstall Windows Media Center? Or make sure it hasn't made itself the default media player? That's all I've done differently with my computer and I can't get this stupid error to stop, open my iTunes or synch my phone.
