Need help pls- locating iTunes/iPhoto with 2 external drives

I've got a Macbook running Mac OS X10.5 and until recently had one external hard drive backing it up. I was constantly having problems losing songs on iTunes although they were still located on the drive. I would tell the library where to locate the song and I just seemed to go round in circles. I finally wondered if the problem might be because everytime I backed up Time Machine created a new folder, so all the songs were spread across many folders. This is probably wrong! But anyway I decided to try to make one single iTunes library. To make things easier I bought a second hard drive as I needed one anyway, I now have a lot of pics (in iPhoto) very precious to me so I thought I could do with two backups.
Before I started moving songs around I backed up my whole system as well as the iPhoto library located on the original hard drive. However now when I try to tell iPhoto to look at the new drive I get an error along the lines of not having write privileges!
This is really frustrating me as I have spent time copying half of the songs on the original drive to one location before I even bought the second drive.
Can anyone please shed some light on where I should locate the iTunes and iPhoto libraries, or why I might be having problems with read/writing?
Thanks in advance and sorry for being long-winded.
