Nano

was music folder created in a different OS like vista, maybe? the other thing is it may just be UAC. Are you running as a standard user or admin?

maybe take ownership of the file?
download the first 'download' button from this tutorial, and once downloaded double click.
once it has merged, right click the music file and there should be a 'Take ownership' button. click, then see if it will move.
