Help please,

Attempting to copy to the disk "..' failed.  You do not have enough access priveleges for this operation.
The sync is at stage 6 of 6. Syncing Genius Data to "...." (step 6 of 6)
Any ideas on how to have the sync complete?
Thanks in advance

I didn't put all of the movies into iTunes at the applestore. I fixed the problem. my external hard drive (where my movies are stored) was read only for some reason.  the last time i was in the store, they must have changed it. thanks though

  • The itunes library file cannot be saved. you do not have access privileges for this operation

    Help, I just cant get rid of this error message:
    The itunes library file cannot be saved. you do not have enough access privileges for this operation.

    The location of the iTunes Library file may be read-only or owned by a different user.
    Default locations:
    XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<login>\My Documents\My Music\iTunes
    Vista: C:\Users\<login>\Music\iTunes
    Windows 7: C:\Users\My Music\itunes
    Right click the iTunes folder and choose Properties
    Look at the Attributes and see if Read-Only is checked.
    Uncheck it and click OK, at the apply to all subfolders and files prompt, make sure all subfolders and files is selected and click OK.
    If your iTunes library saves now you are done.
    If it does not you will need to try on each directory above the iTunes directory.
    Of course if you are not using the default locations you'll have to alter the path to the one you find in iTunes Edit->Preferences, Advanced tab.

    I'm having the same problem.  I just bought an album from my iPhone and when I select "Transfer purchases", I get the same message.

    I didn't know that iTunes had a 64bit download. I have Windows 7 Home Premium with 64bit operation system. I downloaded the iTunes for 64bit and it seems to have corrected the problem. I haven't received the message yet since I did this.

    To be honest I'd be very tempted to ring Applecare and explain that prior to downloading iOS5 your iPod Touch worked perfectly however since downloading Apple's new iOS5 it's "bricked" therefore can they as a matter of decency try to help put things right warranty situation notwithstanding.  Afterall it does appear to be one of Apple's products that has broken your previously working iPod Touch.

    On a Win7 PC and iTunes I'm trying to sync my wife's phone while signed in under our Apple iTunes account. It connects, backs up but then displays the following message:
    The WIndoew accout has full admin privileges and the iTunes account is valid. Ideas?
    Thanks!

    Thank you.
    I actually figured it out a while ago.
    Turns out it is not an issue with the iPhone or iTunes.
    By process of elimination I deduced it could be a permissions issue with the hard drive and/or folder that holds the contents of my Music Library.
    For example, if the "Sharing & Permissions" settings (found in the "Get Info" Window) are set to "Read Only" on the internal or external drive that contains your Music Library for iTunes then you can not write to the disk. Therefore, you do not have privelges to make changes to the internal or external drive and you get the error message when you try to sync with the information on that drive.
    Here's the kicker and million dollar questions:
    How did the "Sharing & Permissions" settings get changed on my Hard Drive without me doing it?
    Why did my iPhone sync fine yesterday and suddenly today the Hard Drive is doing this?
    I have to set all priveleges to all drives to "Read & Write" and that just doesn't seem very secure to me.

    I have tried both suggestions, unfortunately neither fixed this for me. Hoping there's another possible fix. Thanks in advance.

  • I've just opened iTunes on my Mac with an error "The iTunes Library.itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file.". I created a shirred library so that all users on my Mac can access the same library. Help?

    I have just opened ITunes on my Mac and the following error occurred "The iTunes Library.itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file.". When I setup my Mac I created a shared user area to contain my ITunes library so that I could share it with another user logged onto my Mac. However the error above gives me the impression that the library file is locked... I've checked and it does not seem to be locked under the "get info" fie information. Has anyone come across this before and found a solution?

    You also need to make sure you have both read and write permission for the file, or for the whole iTunes folder for that matter.  That's also done in Get Info for the file or folder concerned.

    Repair iTunes Security Permissions
    Right-click on your main iTunes folder and click Properties, then go to the Securitytab and click Advanced. Use the Change Permissions... button grant to your account (or the Users group) and SYSTEM full control of this folder, subfolders and files, then tick the option to Replace permissions entries... which will repair permissions throughout the library. When complete switch to the General tab, click in the Read-only check box to clear it, then click Apply.
    If you don't have the option to change the permissions then use the Owner tab and Edit... button to take ownership from an account with administrator privileges. Tick the option to Replace owner on subcontainers and objects.
    Repeat with the media folder if it isn't stored inside the main iTunes folder.
    If you've brought over the library from another computer you may also want to remove any "mystery" identities (S<string of dashes & digts>) that have come over from the old computer...
    The images above are from Windows 7. Hopefully the system isn't too different in Windows 8.
