When trying to change file names in my music folder a message confirms i do not have sufficient access privileges to change files names. It's my Mac and I'm the administrator, what settings do I need to change to solve the issue?

QUOTE Thanks

select the folder, press CMD+I, then at the bottom of that info window you'll see the read/write privileges - make sure you have both, if you need to change the value just click on the lock icon bottom right.
