    I had this same issue with one of the iTunes 10.5 beta's. It resolved itself when I updated to the newest beta that is out now. Not sure what caused it but it also would not delete anything. It would delete the file on the HD, but would not delete in library lol. All those mishaps are gone though.

    Lol

    Thanks, I've got a different way though: right click the song and choose convert to AAC or something. I think it worsens the quality a teeny bit, but you can edit it.

    Same here. The last beta wouldn't allow me to edit tags or delete files from the library. Fiddling with the permissions gave me a temporary work around, but updating to the current beta solved the problem.
