    Upgraded the SSD on my MBP which is running 10.9.3, now I get an error 45054 when I try to download any of my purchased music on iTunes, I read about it being due to disk permissions but I repaired them in disk utility but to no avail. Anyone?

    Is your Shared folder under /Users present? If not, try this fix. If shared is there, try this fix.

    I have the folder, it has a locked folder in it called 'adi', I tried the permission thing in terminal (1777) but it's still locked, would I be best deleted the folder and recreating it in terminal?

    Folder can't be deleted, well I'm at a loss then, thanks for your help so far, if anyone can help me rectify this I'm all ears, I use my MBP a lot for music so the fact that I can't download any of it leaves it a bit useless...:rolleyes:

    Maybe you are entering the command incorrectly. Even the official Apple support doc here shows it.

    Try to copy/paste this into Terminal and enter. You will be asked for your password.

    Code:
    sudo chmod -R 1777 /Users/Shared

    How I Solved

    I deleted the folder with Sudo Su and it worked
    so on terminal do :
    sudo su
    "Type your password"
    go to the folder /Shared
    delete with the command : rm -r adi
    Solved :)

    Thanks, worked for me! I suspect it was the "adi" folder with in Shared that was read/write only for root.
