You are using this computer as a limited user get the guy who is using this computer with the administrative rights to create this folder for you while use his account, i.e. make the file to your user acoount application data for you and then you try in your account.
Or the guy can just run the setting for loading itunes in your account using the run as option for him(or her) to create the folder for you.

The idea is where this folder is supposed to be created you dont have access rights to create the folder in your name.

I think you have not follow the basic rule. first check your system configuration with iTunes application requirement.
If possible update your system. Now you can download a Apple Application Support file and if not helpful then read this tutorial if you have some technical knowledge https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-6562#qtmoviewin

Can't open itunes


You need to reinstall Itunes and point it towards the correct drive/folder again. When you attached the second hard drive it would have fouled the pointers in iTunes.

Can't get itunes to work


The error message “The folder iTunes cannot be found or created”. It was referring to the My Music directory that is usually located in the My Documents folder on the partition containing the operating system. The iTunes software creates an iTunes folder in the My Music directory on first start and if that directory is not accessible it will throw the error message and fail to load.
Since this error is related to the My Music folder it is important to check the directory path of that folder in the Windows Registry. This is best done by using the shortcut [Windows R], typing [regedit] and hitting the [enter] key.
The fastest way of location the two locations that contain path information for the My Music folder is to use the search by pressing [F3] and entering [My Music] in the search box. A click on [Find Next] will start the search and reveal the two locations.
The test computer system did not have path information listed at all. This can be changed by double-clicking the My Music key in the Registry and changing the path to an valid path manually.
The two Registry locations that list the My Music path are the following two:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
Make sure both point to a valid path on the system. Once the path has been changed iTunes will create the iTunes folder in that location and start up without this error message.

Please back up your registry before doing this. messing in the registry can make your computer stop functioning.

Make sure you follow the correct registry entry.

I combined 2 partitions into one partition using Partition Magic


In iTunes under preferences, you can go to the Advanced tab and specify the new location where you moved the folder to. By default it puts it under My Documents/My Music/iTunes Music. If you've messed with what drive that's on you need to change it in iTunes so it knows where it is.

IPOD VIDEO 30GB WITH ERROR MESSAGE


I found this on the ipod forum on Apples website. See their site for any further assistance.

Sometimes you can resolve it by doing the following:
- Download the .exe file from Apple.com/iTunes
- Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs
- iTunes > Remove
- Open C:\Program Files (default location)
- Find "iTunes" (default folder name)
- Shift + Delete > OK
- Run a registry cleaner, such as PC Tools Desktop Maestro, to remove all old shortcuts and registry keys no longer valid on your computer.
- Start > Shut Down > Restart your computer
- Run the iTunes install program

This should fix the problem, however may require also to update your Windows software (update.Microsoft.com) and download the latest Visual Basic Runtime executable. One time during my clean reinstall the iTunes software mentioned an error with a vb run executable and couldn't continue the install until I found it online.

Disk is Locked Error


If the My Music folder is in the wrong location or incorrectly assigned in the Windows registry, you may see one of the following error messages:
  • "The folder iTunes is on a locked disk or you do not have write permissions for this folder."
  • "The folder iTunes cannot be found or created and is required. The default location for this folder is inside the Music folder."

If you see one of the above errors, follow these steps to troubleshoot this:
  1. Verify the location of your Windows XP My Music folder. The default location for this folder is
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music
    If you do not have this folder at the default location and have not moved it to another location, consider creating one inside your My Documents folder.
  2. Download and install Tweak UI from the Microsoft PowerToys website at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx Note: This utility is for Windows XP only. Please review the system requirements before installing.
  3. Once you have installed Tweak UI, open it from the Start menu.
  4. In the column on the left, click on the plus symbol (+) next to My Computer and select Special Folders. ht1866_01.jpg
  5. In the right pane on the Folderlist, click My Music.
  6. Click the Change Location button. You may see a warning message appear with precautions for changing this setting; after reviewing the message, click Yes. ht1866_02.jpg
  7. In the resulting window, browse for the My Music folder as described in step 1, and click OK. ht1866_03.jpg
  8. Reinstall or open iTunes.
