    When I try to backup the itunes music folder to an external hard drive. It starts.... Then eventually stops saying "You don't have sufficient privileges to complete the operation."

    HOW CAN I fix this?

    There is only about 8 gigs of music in these folders. Can someone help me figure out a way to backup this music library?

    Macbook pro is on Tiger 10.4.11

    What format is the external?

    Have you repaired permissions on both drives?
