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.

Thanks, I've upgraded to 7.1 but I'm still getting the same problems.

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.

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.
