    I cloned the original drive to the new 250gb drive using Carbon Copy Cloner, then swapped them out. Now when iTunes starts up the following error occurs:

    "The folder ITUNES is on a locked disk or you do not have write permissions for this folder"

    Any ideas? iTunes worked before, and I have used this exact process before with just fine results. Thanks, I appreciate it.

    Check out the permissions (Not just on the library, also check the preceding folders). For the Users, try removing your admin access, and then re-add it, with read and write.
    You can always run Disk Utility, and Repair disk permissions.

    Maybe try this:

    Make sure itunes is closed (no blue light under the icon)

    Hold the Alt key. and then click on itunes. You should see a message that says "Itunes needs a library to continue" Click on choose library, and then navigate to ~/Music/itunes/itunes library (it will have a blue musical note on it)

    Choose this library, and see if that works
