    Access privileges

    Hi,

    I have recently upgraded to Vista and since this have been having problems
    transferring music from itunes to my ipod, it continually comes up with the
    message "itunes couls not save to your music folder because you do not have
    write access. Check the permissions in your Music folder and folders in your
    Music Folder, then try copying this file again."

    I only have my account and the guest account, I don't see why I wouldn't
    have the privileges to do this.

    Apple has some tips for using an iPod with Vista.

    On the page I linked to it says "Apple is actively working with Microsoft to
    resolve a few remaining known issues." This is Apple's way of saying. iTunes
    still has some problems in Vista and we don't really know how to fix it.

    RE: Access privileges

    I'm also having the same problem when I sync my ipod. No new songs get added
    or new info . The rests seems to work fine. I tried looking into the
    permission and sharing properties of the music files but they seems OK and
    anyway, it's a bit complicated esp with the advanced and other permissions.
    I am the administrator on the account and my daughters are on standard
    accounts. Hopefully this can be fixed soon.
