I want my wife and I to have different playlists using iTunes and Multiple users. It seems iTunes isn't smart enough to go to the users 'Documents' folder , but instead goes to the main documents folder which my wife does not have permission (iTunes reports a locked folder error)

Anybody get this to work???

I have also had the a similar problem, which I have not fully worked out how to get around. But in my case iTunes start fine, but if you quite and go back in it reports that the iTunes library file is locked. I guess it's not unlocking the correct file when it quits.

Same problems here. I've tried changing the sharing status for the documents folder, and for the iTunes folder inside. No luck so far.

I would hate to have to duplicate all those mp3's just so the kids could listen to them on their limited user acct.
