I can't use XBMC 9.11's "Export video library … into Seperate Files Per Entry" function.

I looked at the xbmc.log and found out it's due to Permission Error, but I do not know how to grant the permission. Please help.

My setup is an AppleTV 3.0.2. My movies are in a USB drive that is attached to my Mac mini (PPC) running OS X 10.5.8.

The AppleTV connects to the USB Drive by SMB. in my Mac OS X's "Sharing" system preferences, I have allowed "Read & Write" to "Everyone", although the user is "Bluemint" only, and there is not a user account for "frontrow".

Please help me fix this issue.
Nevermind; issue resolved.

I did something daring. I "Get Info" on a folder containing all my movies and changed the Permission for "Everyone" from "read only" to "Read & Write", and export now works!
