Customer Question

Hi, I have a Mac and installed Mountain Lion recently. I cannot download anything from iTunes b/c I get a message indicating I do not have enough access privileges. I've confirmed that all my music and Itunes folders have both read and write privileges. Any other ideas?

Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!

I called Apple and it was a 20 second fix.

I just noticed you charged me another $1 on top of my $12. I did not authorize anything over $12. Please don't make me call my credit card's fraud division.
