[function.rename]: Access is denied. (code: 5)

I have successfully created a directory inside wordpress using the following:

$tempDir = ABSPATH . 'wp-content' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'themes' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'used-car-lot-theme'; mkdir($tempDir,0700);

however, when i try to use rename:

rename(ABSPATH.'wp-content'.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'plugins'.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'used-car-lot'.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR.'twentyten1', ABSPATH . 'wp-content' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'themes' . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'used-car-lot-theme');
I get the subject error message: [function.rename]: Access is denied. (code: 5)

I’m fairly certain it’s a Windows thing but after a day of searching for answers I have no clue how to attack
the problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
