This refers to permissions on your computer which must have been changed. Start by using Disk Utility to repair permissions. Then do the following:
Reset User Permissions and ACLs in Lion/Mountain Lion
Boot to the Recovery HD:
Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
From the Utilities menu select Terminal. At the Terminal prompt enter: resetpassword. Press RETURN. When the window opens select your startup drive where it says "Select the volume containing the user account:" At the bottom of the window you will see, "Reset Home folder permissions and ACLs." Click on the Reset button.

  • HT4623 I have been trying to install my music and pictures to my Iphone 4s but it is giving me an errror message that I don't have enough access privilages for this operation. Why?

    I am wondering why that I can not add my music and photos from itunes to my I phone 4s. I have been given this message : You don't have enough access privilages for this operation.

    If your iPad has a passcode lock, have you tried unlocking the iPad before attempting to sync it with iTunes?
    Do you have the latest version of iTunes installed on your Windows PC?

  • TS3297 i keep getting the error-5000 when trying to download my music purchases, it's says I don't have enough access privledges for this operation what can I do

    I keep getting this message when trying to download music purchases on my netbook
    error-5000 not enough access priviledges

    Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (later)
    Remove all of these items in the following order:
    iTunes
    Apple Software Update
    Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall move on to the next item)
    Bonjour
    Apple Application Support
    Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
    The uninstall and reinstall process will preserve your iTunes library and settings, but ideally you would back up the library and your other important personal documents and data on a regular basis. See this user tip for a suggested technique.
    Please note:
    Some users may need to follow all the steps in whichever of the following support documents applies to their system. These include some additional manual file and folder deletions not mentioned above.

  • HELP! trying to transfer purchases from my iPad but keep getting: "you do not have enough access privileges for this operation" message

    I recently had a hard drive crash and lost almost everything except for what I managed to save on Carbonite. When I got the new hard drive, I updated to Lion and began the laborious process of restoring my files. I think it is up to 40% done.
    Anyway, I went to try to transfer my purchases from my iPad2 (4.3.3) and received the message:  "You do not have enough access privileges for this operation" followed by: "Attempting to copy to Hard drive failed. You do not have enough access priviledges for this operation."
    So, I did a search on the problem and have found similar complaints and some reasonable suggestions, which I attempted without success. So far I have:
    1) Rebooted
    2) Changed all the Permissions on the iPhoto Library and iTunes folders to Read & Write.
    3) Used Disk Utility to Verify & Repair permissions.
    Nothing is working.
    HELP!

    Had the same thing happen to me a few weeks back when I switched computers and migrated.  Here's what worked on my iMac, so maybe it'll work on your iPad, too.  Go to User(your home folder)/Music.  Select/highlight your "Music" folder.  Then do Command-I ("Get Info" from the File menu), click on the padlock icon in the lower right of the new window.  Enter your user password.  Click on your username just above the now-open padlock.  Select "Read & Write" if it's on "Read Only," "Write Only," or "No Access."  Now having your user account with "Read & Write" privileges (it may have been this way already; still do this next step), click on the gear on the bottom-center of that window.  Click on "Apply to all enclosed items."  When the pop-up says "Are you sure?" (or the equivalent), say "yes."  This will grant access privileges to your user account for all the music files inside your music folder--all your iTunes stuff included).  Then you should be good to go.

  • When trying to install a digital copy, everything works including the downloading, until it is processing to iTunes then I receive "You do not have enough access privilages for this operation. Check the disk to make sure it is clean and retry." error.

    When trying to install a digital copy, everything works including the downloading, until it is processing to iTunes then I receive "You do not have enough access privilages for this operation. Check the disk to make sure it is clean and retry." error.
    Tryed several times, Same Results. Tryied rebooting, logging out & into iTunes, Same Result. Seems to do this error with every digital copy, but works eventually. But now will not post digital copy to my iTunes at all. Just same error over and over.
    Any Thoughts??

    Oddly enough. I think I just solved it. It looks like, for some reason, my computer has about 8 different "iTunes music" folders, and I've been saving my music to the wrong one. Neat. Music now imports and plays as it should. Copying things over is going to be so fun tonight!

    Hey there Hannuj,
    It sounds like you are unable to access the iTunes Store in the iTunes application. Based on the error message I would try the steps in the article here named:
    iTunes for Windows: iTunes Store connection troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1527
    Remove pop-up blockers
    Some pop-up or ad-blocking programs may interfere with the ability of iTunes to connect to the iTunes Store. Removing them in many cases will resolve the issue.
    Flush DNS Setting in Windows
    In some cases, the DNS information you computer uses to connect to the Internet needs to be reset. Follow these instructions to flush your Windows DNS information:
    Windows XP
    On the Start menu, click Run.
    In the Open field type cmd and click OK.
    In the resulting window, type ipconfig /flushdns and press Return on the keyboard.
    You should see a message that the DNS Resolver Cache has been successfully flushed.
    Windows Vista and Windows 7
    On the Start menu, point to All Programs > Accessories and then right-click Command Prompt and chooseRun as Administrator from the shortcut menu. If Windows needs your permission to continue, clickContinue.
    In the resulting window, type ipconfig /flushdns and press Return on the keyboard.
    You should see a message that the DNS Resolver Cache has been successfully flushed.
    Note: If, in the command prompt, you see this message: "The requested operation requires elevation", close the command prompt and repeat steps 1 and 2 above to be sure that Administrator privileges are used to access to Command Prompt.
    See the following articles for additional troubleshooting information on connecting to the iTunes Store:

  • Trying to sync my new phone and it says that I do not have enough access priviledges for this operation.  Help?!?!

    When I try to sync my new phone to my iTunes, it says that I do not have enough access priviledges for this operation.  I can't figure out WHY?

    Hello KYaple,
    It sounds like there are permissions issues with iTunes. When you sync it may be trying to copy purchased items from your iPhone to your iTunes. Check out the article below to try and resolve it.

  • HT201272 I get this message when I try to download purchased music, never seen it before, never had a problem before. you do not have enough access privelages for this operation

    I get this message when I try to download purchased music, never seen it before, never had a problem before.
    "you do not have enough access privelages for this operation"
    This computer is authorized, auoto download is enabled and I can download on my ipad without a problem.
    Any ideas what might be going on?

    Hi jimbowby,
    If you are getting this error message just when attempting to download previously purchased music (new purchases work fine), and it's only occuring on the computer (redownloads on the iPad work fine), it may be a permissions issue. It may be worth taking a look at the Resolution section of the following article, which covers other issues that can throw that same error message: Trouble adding music to iTunes library or importing audio CD Hope that helps.
    Cheers,
    - Brenden

  • I have a new PC and I am getting the message "The iTunes Library File cannot be saved.  You do not have enough access privileges for this operation."  I am the only one using this PC and I have Windows 7 Pro and have an administrator account.  Help

    Can anyone help me with this problem.  ITunes message," The iTunes library file cannot be saved.  You do not have enough access privileges for this operation."   I have administrator account and transferred files from old PC.  I downloaded new iTunes program on new PC.  I synced my iPhone to new PC, no problem.  I deleted old account after indicating shared files to new admin account.  Can anyone help?

    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!

    Launch iTunes on your new computer then from the menu bar click Store / Authorize This Computer.
    Try syncing.
