    Even though I havent changed any settings or folders that iTunes uses, when I open iTunes I get the message, "The iTunes Music Library file is locked, on a locked, or you do not have write permission for this file." and then it closes without the iTunes console popping up, not allowing me to access my music.

    Has anybody had this problem before? Does anybody know how to get my music playing again?

    BTW: iTunes 3 on 10.2, and it has worked numerous times since the last software update...

    Thanks Guys :D

    First, is the iTunes library file (or various xml files) locked? Check in the get info window and uncheck the "Locked" option, IF it is already locked.

    Second, if you haven't already done so, update iTunes to 3.0.1. If that doesn't work, update your system software to the most current version. (If 10.2.4 has given you severe problems, perhaps you can navigate with 10.2.3.)

    Also, are you keeping your xml and library files in the same user directory as your home folder (i.e.: users/your name/ etc.)?
