    Lightroom cannot use the catalog named XXX because it is not writable and cannot be opened.


      I have seen other posts on this problem, but my situation may be a little different. I just bought a new Mac and have downloaded all my files from backup. Now I can't open any Lightroom catalogs. I did change permissions from the Lightroom catalog down to the actual catalog file to Read & Write, but still get the error. I am an administrator, so I would think I have full rights to all my files. And I don't understand why I could edit the files in my old Mac but the downloaded files were automatically marked as read only.
