    Hey Alonso,

    can you perhaps send a screenshot, describe the error message in greater detail, and perhaps upload your logs (Help -> Upload Logs, from within the app)?

    Hey Brian,

    sorry for addressing you as "Alonso" earlier.

    The error means that beaTunes asked to change something, but answered that it can't do that, because of file permission issues. Typically this means that your current user does not have the right to modify the audio file. Ensure that all files that you want to manipulate are writable by your current user and you should be fine. Finder can help you do that.

    Hope this helps,
