    All I found on the Apple Support site was this:



    It was in the section outlining the changes in 10.4.2 which can be found here. Are you running the latest release of Tiger?

    You should tell us (with as much detail as possible) what did you do to get this error, and then maybe we can help.

    Well, what I understood from the site is that 10.4.2 fixes it. This is pretty weird though, because you have 10.4.2. So were you copying a file over SMB to a PC then?

    nope, this is what i was doing, and see if you get the same error too...

    okay.. go to your itunes music folder...
    open it up...
    pick an artists folder.. any one will do, we'll use "yellowjackets" here for sake of example..
    go to your desktop and make a folder called "yellowjackets"
    now when you drag that folder into the music folder u get the error

    the error u should be getting is the file copy error do you wanna replace, but u don't...

    Okay, I just did exactly that and I got the regular "Do you want to replace this..." error message. Weird. :confused:

    Sorry I can't help you, no Aussie music store just yet. All my music is ripped from CDs.

    I got the same repaired permissions after installing 10.4.2 yet still no problems. Are you saying that if the folder doesn't have ITMS music then it'll give the regular error message?

    yep... if others get the same error.. looks like we can call this one a 10.4.2 bug.. time to file that bug report...

    i also tried it out on other folders that had music but that wasn't protected.. same deal... hrm..

    Bloody nuisance!

    Found a workaround, tx to:
    http://www.betalogue.com/?p=1507

    I downloaded the Mozilla Thunderbird DMG
    Mounted the DMG
    Dragged the .APP to a new folder in Applications
    Started the .APP
    Deleted the old version in Applications
    Quit the new version
    Dragged the new version to Applications

    No error code, no mail/settings/etc lost (they're safely in ~/Library/Thunderbird), everything works just fine. Some steps may be unnecessary. Perhaps all you need to do is delete the old version first, and then copy the newer version to Applications. Untested tho.

    In the end the best solution might be to use the case-sensitive HFS Extended file system. Dunno..
