I have a bit of a problem. I recently used my Xbox 360 as a Media Extender using Windows Media Centre and so on. I had both my computer and my Xbox plugged into the network, and the Xbox accessed movies and music off of my computer -- no problem, right?
Well today I tried to start iTunes and was told that it can't start because it's on a locked disk. So I opened up the properties tab (this is the iTunes folder in Program Files) and changed it from Read-Only. So I opened it again and was informed that:
"The iTunes Library Extras.itdb file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file."
That file is in My Music, so I went to My Music, iTunes, and attempted to change THAT to Read-Only. But I get hit with:
"You will need to provide administrator permission to change these attributes. Click Continue to complete this operation."
If I click Continue, I get another error:
"An error occured applying attributes to the file:
C:\Users\James...\iTunes Library Extras.itdb"
Access is denied.
Ignore/Ignore All/Try Again/Cancel"
And so on, for every file in iTunes, and "Try Again" doesn't work at all. I tried setting iTunes to "Share With... Homegroup (read/write)" but that didn't do anything.
I went through Properties on the My Music/iTunes folder, and went to Security, and enabled full control for myself. I also set myself as the owner - for some reason the owner was changed to my Xbox's address.
But alas, I still can't start iTunes. I found another thread on here from someone with a similar problem, but their solution didn't help me.
Does anyone have any ideas or solutions? I'm pretty much at the end of my rope and out of ideas.
edit: here's a link to a post with a problem similar to mine -- their solution didn't work for me: All my files have changed to READ ONLY, PLZ HELP!
