" although i am an administrator and have changed the privilege on the HD to "read and write"
What were they before? I ask because they should be read and write. Have you been experimenting with ownership permissions on the HD and mucked up something perhaps?
no, copying from a USB onto the HD is fine...
I think it is just an iTunes problem then.
In Finder, navigate to your iTunes folder (~/Music/iTunes) and do a Get Info on that folder and check to see you Jack… is set to read and write. You may have to unlock the padlock to change it to read and write.
Oh! I agree this is tricky.
The image you posted of your disk permissions is useful, because it looks a bit screwy.
- "you have custom access" does not look right.
- instead of staff you have admin which looks wrong,
- and it has two owners !
- everyone should be read only (that's probably what you changed before)
I hope someone else can provide some guidance here.
Yeah i hope so hahah, thanks for your help so far though, if I click on "this helped me" do you get points? Just want to help out and it's my first time posting so I'm not familiar with the ettiquate
It is thoughtful of you Jack but don't worry about the points, besides my suggestions have not helped you as yet.
The only other thing I've been able to dig up is this:
"These messages occur if permissions are incorrect on your designated music folder or on a folder inside your designated music folder. Permissions are settings that determine who can read, write to, or execute a file or folder on your computer. Every file and folder on your hard disk has an associated set of permissions.
Example: If permissions are correct on your Music folder, but incorrect on the U2 folder inside your Music folder, you would be able to add other music to your iTunes library, but not that new U2 album."
I'm thinking this account which you say was standard and you upgraded it to admin privileges somehow has not worked on your iTunes folder.
Is your iTunes folder sitting in its default location, within your User / Music folder?
Did you drag that iTunes folder from another account maybe?
