    yeah its untitled because last time i send back to apple store for warranty of hardrive failure. they replace it for me and installed macosx and my hardrive is named untitled. last time it used to be macintosh hd then after the replacement they reinstall it became untitled.

    Okay, you can rename your hard drive if you like.

    To solve your iTunes problem, take a look at this Apple doc:

    :apple: Trouble adding music to iTunes library or importing audio CD

    Did you check every folder within the iTunes Media folder to see if they have Read & Write permissions?

    Can you check the other iTunes created files like iTunes Library, iTunes Library Extras.itdb, iTunes Library Genius.itdb, iTunes Music Library.xml to see if they have Read & Write permissions?

    Great! I'm glad to hear that your back in business. :D

    If you want to change the name of your hard drive to Macintosh HD or even something else, here's how:

    Click your hard drive so it becomes selected. Select Get Info from the File menu. Below where it says Name & Extension, in your case it says Untiled, select that so it's highlighted and type in your new name. Close the Get Info box. Your hard drive now has a name.
