The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. The disk cannot be found.

Hi,
Just curious if anyone knows what this iTunes error message means:
+The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. The disk cannot be found.+
I am attempting to play music from my library located on the a Lacie 1TB NAS, which allows me to play our iTunes library from either the iMac or MacBook.
Let me know if there's any further info needed on my set up to help answer my query.
Cheers

I'm getting the same error on the Mini with SL. Also a similar setup with the library on an external drive.
Music plays okay, but the message keeps popping up.
Some artwork has gone missing as well, which is a bit random too.
Any ideas?

  • Is there any way to recover the iTunes Library file from the iPod Touch to preserve metadata like Date Added?

    Topic.
    I used software (SharePod) to retrieve music from my iPod Touch after my original harddrive failed, but the program does not retrieve the iTunes Library file needed to import the metadata into iTunes (though it shows in the program itself). The music backed up with no issue, but I don't have what I need to preserve things like Date Added, Play Count, etc. Any solution if I have only the physical iPod Touch?

    Yo may be able to extract some info from the backup of the iPod:

  • 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!

  • 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:

    Hi there Br0x,
    You may want to try rebuilding the iTunes library as an initial troubleshooting step. Take a look at the article below for more information.

    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. 
    Thanks,

    Hi pholewinski!
    I have a couple of articles for you here that I believe will help you with this issue. The first is an article on advanced troubleshooting, and it can be found here:
    iTunes: Advanced iTunes Store troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts3297
    If following that article's steps doesn't take care of the issue, you can try the things listed in this article, which is about permissions issues in iTunes:

    Thanks for using the Apple Support Communities. Have a good one!

  • "The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. you do not have. You do not have

    when adding songs to the library, I receive this message
    ""The iTunes Library file cannot be saved. you do not have. You do not have enough access priviledges for this operations"
    Any tips?

    Thanks for your answer. I will try to force my login as Administrator by entering in Safemode. However, I'm running a Windows Based system, and the only user in my machine is mine, and it have been defined it as Administrator, so I don't expect a different behavior if i force the administrator by Safe mode.
    will let you know.
    Any other idea?
    Does Itunes generate a Log or something that I can review and find details about that error message?

    I get this message what does it mean?
    "the itunes library file cannot be saved. you do not have enough access privileges for this operation"

    You need to have enough rights to write to the My Music folder.
    Most likely, your My Documents folder or My Music folder is missing or broken. Create the My Music folder in your My Documents, if it's not there, then use TweakUI to set it as the special My Music folder.

  • "The iTunes library file cannot be saved.You do not have enough access privileges for this operation."

    keep getting       '' the itunes library file cannot be saved. you do not have enough access privledges''  when ever i try to add or change my library, why? have tried  several suggestions on the internet to stop this from happening but with no success. i am running windows 7. has started happening since installing new security software. would this have anything to do with this problem? any suggestions

    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.
