the itunes library file cannot be saved.
the disk you are attempting to use is full.
What do I do?

Short term, free up some disk space. Long term, move the library to a bigger drive.

    "...There is not enough memory available."
    But I'm pretty sure 145 GB worth of free disk space is enough... I don't understand. ;_; And I'm sorry if you guys have heard this a bajillion times before but none of the searches that came up were able to help my technically challenged self.
    It just happened to me yesterday when the message randomly came up and kept coming back two seconds after I close it. what does it mean? I read somewhere that you're supposed to hold shift as iTunes is starting up or something but that already accidentally wiped out my library so I really don't want to go through that again... What's the problem?
    Thanks in advance!

    I too have this problem. It started when I downloaded itunes 7.3
    Can anyone help?? Please !!
    I am a new ipod owner, and am learning every day. I

    Hi Mr.Jones,
    I started with the questions marks because I did not understand what you were asking.
    I had the impression that yo wanted to make a backup of the Library.
    The Library is "saved" in it's standard folder when you change something. Restarting iTunes, or even restarting the Macbook normally solves problems.

  • HT2729 all download and file copies have been paused. the disk you are attempting to use is full

    this is the message im having trouble with.
    all download and file copies have been paused. the disk you are attempting to use is full
    what do i do now?
    thanks

    Perhaps the destination you are trying to download to is full; that's what the message says, after all.
    If you're trying to download directly to an iPod touch, then perhaps it is full up.
    If you're trying to download to your computer, is there space on your hard drive? Alternatively, is the hard drive set to "read only" or are your account permissions set to deny you the option to save files?

  • HT1660 I'm getting a message that reads 'The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. You do not have enough access privileges for this operation." Why is this? And how can I fix it?

    I'm getting a message that reads 'The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. You do not have enough access privileges for this operation." Why is this? And how can I fix it? I'm worried that I'm going to lose my entire library because of this.

    A belated reply, as the problems itunes has have discouraged me from using it much. If you uncheck the "read only" box, it doesn't stay that way! Next time you use it, the box comes up checked.
    I'm still having that problem, even when I open iTunes as administrator.
    I've yet to see the answer to this problem. I use itunes mostly to download audiobooks, and I'm ready to download more, and want to save them!

    Hi, DickmoAZ.  
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    This sounds like a permission issue most likely with the iTunes Media folder.  Here is an article that will help you troubleshoot this issue.

  • Trying to back up iPad to external hard drive, "iTunes library file cannot be saved. The disk you are attempting to use is full."

    This issue is somewhat complex so I will try to explain it as clearly as I can. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    It all began when I kept getting popups from my iPad saying that I had not backed up since May. I realized that was pretty dangerous so I decided to finally try syncing it to iTunes, though I had avoided doing so for so long because I knew that when I tried there was no room on the computer. I then remembered that I have an external hard drive with plenty of storage space, so I got that out and set it up with a folder to move iTunes and the backup into.
    On iTunes I went to the Advanced Preferences and changed iTunes Media Folder Location to the G: folder, with the keep organized box checked. I also copied the previous backups from the original C: drive to G: so that I could delete the ones on C:.
    I used Junction Link Magic to link my now empty MobileSync backup on C: to a new (JLM would not work unless it was empty) backup folder on external hard drive G:.
    I plugged in my iPad to iTunes to sync it, and while it was backing up I checked the new folder on G: to make sure that the backup was being put there. It was.
    However, about halfway through I got the message "iTunes library file cannot be saved. The disk you are attempting to use is full."
    My question is Why? If it is being made in a 1.5 terabyte hard drive now, and not the computer, why is there no disk space? My guess is that it must still somehow be saving to the computer. But how? And how can I get it to save solely on the G: drive where there is enough room?
    I am running Windows XP and the latest version of iTunes.
    An additional but not as crucial issue:
    Much of my music has been lost, with the being displayed next to the songs in the iTunes library, and only 50 (purchased) songs remain on my iPad. This was because those missing songs were stored on a different external hard drive ( I:). However, I copied many of the music folders on I: over to G: so that everything could be together. I am wondering if it is possible for me to get these songs back onto my iPad. But this is not my most important issue right now, because I believe that once I get the first issue solved I can simply plug in I: and G: at the same time while syncing the iPad, and get the songs back.
    Note: I have come to realize the iTunes program itself is still under Program Files in the C: drive. Does this have to do with anything?

    Short term, free up some disk space. Long term, move the library to a bigger drive.

  • Error Message: The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. Unknown Error 13001

    My error message says:
    The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. An Unknown error occurred (13001).
    Ever since I loaded the new 3.0 touch upgrade I have been bombarded by error after error. I have turned off genius which seemed to fix the problem at first but about an hour later the error warning popped up again. I have tried the shift start and selected my library with no improvement. It seems to pop up if I load a new podcast or download something and then fails to download.

    Hmmm, that error message came up a lot with older itunes & Genius, like 8.0 version. But you have 8.2.
    I don't know why it would crash on a download unless it is maybe a permissions problem. The download starts, but permissions make it so it cannot save it at the very end? Make sure you have ownership and full control over your itunes folder and all its subfolders.
    How to Take Ownership and Grant Permissions in Windows Vista
    And since you've turned off Genius, try deleting these 2 files
    iTunes Library Genius.itdb
    iTunes Library Extras.itdb
    Restart itunes and see if there is any difference....good luck!

  • Error message -48: The itunes library file cannot be saved.

    Hello,
    When I open up my itunes i get an error message 48 - the itunes library file cannot be saved. All my data is there - music, podcasts etc. Just wondering if this error message means anything, if so what, and what I can do to fix it?
    Thanks!

    I just called Apple Support and I think they helped me, but I'm still waiting to see if the error message returns. I was experiencing the same problem. Whenever I started iTunes, I would get the -48 error message. Everything else was working fine. Apple Support instructed me to delete some files from a folder and restart my pc. I did this and it seems to have worked. The folder is on my C:/ drive. Using Windows Explorer, I went to my C:/ drive and then opened the following folders in this order: "Documents and Settings", "Administrator", "Application Data", "Apple Computer", "iTunes", "iPod Software Updates". Inside the iPod Software Updates folder, I found four files which I deleted. I then emptied my trash can and restarted my pc. After I restarted my pc and opened iTunes, the error message did not come up. So it looks like my problem has been solved. Just some minor glitch having to do with the last update. I should mention that I did just get an iPod Classic 80 gig which replaced my 30 gig iPod Photo which just died.

    The error message I get on my PC is "The ITunes library file cannot be saved" An unknown error occurred (-50)and my music library has disappeared.  I recently tried to copy a CD to my library - it appeared to copy ok but then did not appear in my music library.  The library does not show up even when my iPad is connected to my PC.  My entire library is now held on my iPad and I wish to have it in iTunes so I can sync my iPhone to it as well.  Help?

    Don't know what changed today but it downloaded and installed on the shuffle. So far so good.

  • "The Itunes library file cannot be saved" Error Message (-54) please help!

    Hello, I was loading a music cd onto my itunes library today when I started getting this recurring Error message stating: "The Itunes library file cannot be saved. An unknown error has occurred (-54)"
    It just keeps popping up, and now it let me play anything without getting it. So in a panic I realized that nothing is backed up, so I started backing up my itunes using a blank dvd and even that failed in the middle of burning. I guess it has something to do with the error message?
    This scares me since I'm very careful of the types of discs I put into my Mac, and I know that disc in particular didn't have any kind of virus (its been playing in my car for the last two years actually) and it was burned on my PC using itunes a while back when the system was clean.
    My music is like my life and this message is freaking me out, how do I get rid of the message without damaging my library? or what happened to make it appear?
    I'm afraid of how to proceed next.....Someone please help!

    I suspect some anti-virus software is incorrectly interpreting the rewriting of the file and is causing a problem.
    Either way, you should definitely update your anti-virus software and definitions to the latest, and run a full scan of your system. Then tell the security software not to scan the iTunes itl file/folder.
    If that does not help, you may want to recreate your iTunes library:

    I know this doesn't help you Bud, but I've had this issue for at least the last couple of versions.  If I can ask, what is you enviornment like?  Local PC only, libray saved on another PC/Server? 
    In my case my library is on Windows 2003 server with the share mapped to drive M:  This has worked for many years through both XP and Windows 7 until and update a while ago.
