Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Itunes is still not working.
I do not have the proper permissions to download music to my computer.

Hi, Have you tried logging out and logging into iTunes? Thank you.S H E F I N
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
iTunes says I do not have enough access privileges to download music
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
And yes, I logged out and logged back in
Expert:  Shefin replied 1 year ago.
Hi, Please try the following. 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). Let me know the response. Thank you.S H E F I N
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
CustomerI went to the music folder and clicked "Get Info".There is no padlock. At all. I have seen it in other parts like system preferences.
There is a section titled "Sharing & Permissions", but I can not click on it.All this started after I downloaded El Capitian.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ah, it finally opened. Just a second.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I read it over, and I do have read & write access.I also run this off my external, so just a moment.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes, I checked not my external drive and iTunes, iTunes media and Music all have read & write
Expert:  Shefin replied 1 year ago.
Hi, Please restart the computer once again, and try accessing iTunes. Thank you.S H E F I N
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did not make any changes. It was already listed as Read & Write. I did not change anything.
I have restarted my couple a few times already.
Expert:  Shefin replied 1 year ago.
Hi, Please make sure that you are using the latest version of iTunes and there is no update pending for iTunes. If the issue persists, reboot into Recovery (hold Command-R at boot), then load Disk Utility and then you can fix permissions under First Aid. Open Disk Utility, which is in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder.Select the startup disk from the list of volumes.Click the First Aid tab.To check permissions, click Verify Disk Permissions. To repair permissions, click Repair Disk Permissions. Let me know the response. Thank you.S H E F I N
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When I clicked the First Aid, there was not an option to Verify Disk permissions.
I will go ahead and try iTunes anyway.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I logged out of iTunes.
I closed iTunes.
I relaunched iTunes.
Signed in.
Still not able to download music.Should I run First Aid on the external drive where I store iTunes?
Expert:  Shefin replied 1 year ago.
Hi, Open the Terminal application (found in /Applications/Utilities/) and use the following syntax to repair a volumes permissions. Repairing permissions may take a while, just like it did from Disk Utility. sudo /usr/libexec/repair_packages --repair --standard-pkgs --volume / Thank you.S H E F I N
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No change. Still can't download anything. I tried to run it again.
It seems to not be doing anything.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
