    Every time i put itunes music files into my shared folder from the administrator's account then try to drop it into my itunes library on my other account, it says i do not have write access and should check my music folders. Well, i gave every music folder and itunes write access privileges, but i still get the same message when i try to transfer the music. Is there something I'm missing? Please help.

    If you are trying to do all this from only within the administrator account, it will not let you unless you change the access permissions for the folders on the other account. You need to add read/write permissions for the administrator account to the folders you want to access within the other account. By default the system locks you out of all other account's folders except for the Public folder of each account.
