rsook is offline

I am trying to copy my iTunes folder from my iMac to my Macbook. I have both connected through a local wired network. The computers recognize each other on the network.

However, I cannot copy files from the iMac to the Macbook. I can see the folder (iTunes) I want to copy, but when I try to copy it it says I do not have sufficient privileges. I have allowed file sharing on both computers, and have made my Music and iTunes folders shared folders and permitted read access. On my Macbook, the folders on the iMac have red access icons.

I have transferred files from my Macbook to iMac before, so I am sure I am missing something simple. I have spent an hour googling trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. Any help is appreciated!

QUOTE Thanks
