Let me summarize for others when you transferred your PC collection to your Mac all the files were marked immuntable (which can be detemined with ls -lo *) and therefore could not be changed. Because they could not be changed Jaikoz would not open them and it complained they were read only, which they are but not due to the read flag. 


Not all files but some (half or something?). Why, I just don't have any clue, just copied those from Windows share like any other files.

When seeing a particular file in Finder -> Get Info, there is "Locked" parameter tickable by the user and no I did not altered that never. Yes lesson learned is: this "Locked" has nothing to do with ordinary rwx file attributes.

What does Code:
ls -l
say from the Terminal
 


I tried this listing but one needs 'O' option to see all the nice (depends, it took many hours to find out the cause) things in Mac OS X or BSD derivates..

So Code:
sudo chflags -R nouchg /path/to/files
did the trick!

Somehow I was faced with "User immutable flag" whatever in earth it is.. never heard and it wasn't me (can't be ;) to enable those flag here and there but not everywhere thou.

Hi!

I'm new to Mac and Jaikoz so I'm sorry if this is just infamous invalid user case.

However I transferred MP3 collection from the PC to Mac. Jaikoz complains that huge number of files are read only, when I try to import mp3-folder to Jaikoz. What to do? What kind of permissions Jaikoz needs for user/group/world, presented as Unix style if you like? Now I see that "Me" is having read&write access when looking the situation via Mac's Finder and no other users having any access.

TIA & BR,
