    Hello. I'm trying to install iTunes 9.2.1 but I keep getting a pop-up saying: the destination folder iTunes 9.2.1 is on a locked volume. Please select another destination. I hope you can help!! I tried getting some help from Apple but couldn't afford their tech support, the only thing they could tell me is I need to look into system security and something about unlocking the computer??

    Are you an admin on the Mac you want to install iTunes?

    If so, take a look at the Applications folder and open the GET INFO window of that folder and see, what it says under "Sharing and Permissions".

    What Mac OS X version do you have?

    Any particular reason you're installing an old version of iTunes? Certainly doesn't sound like the reason for your problem. Just curious.

    Sounds like you may be trying to install iTunes on the mounted DMG (or CD/DVD) that iTunes comes on instead of your hard drive. Make sure that that install destination is your hard drive.
