Tip & How-To about Apple iTunes

ITunes Error 13010 - How to correct this error in iTunes

As with any application in any operating system in this high tech computer industry today, there is always going to an error of some kind. How that error can be eliminated, is always the principal concern of any computer user of a Mac or PC.

One of the errors I would like to provide a tip for you, on how to resolve, is the "Error 13010" error message, which affects users of iTunes in Mac OS X.

The Error 13010 alert, will usually appear when a user is unable to launch and open iTunes. More often than not, however, the fix for this error is a relatively easy one.

Here are steps for you can implement to eliminate this error:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For Mac OS X

• Make sure iTunes application is closed.

• Click anywhere on the blank space of your desktop and Finder will appear near the Apple menu icon located in the upper left corner of your screen.

• From the Finder menu click on Go> then select Go to Folder



• You will need to type /Users/td7/Music/iTunes in the open dialog
box:



• This will take you directly to your iTunes folder.

• Within iTunes folder, locate and remove to the Trash,
the iTunes Library Genius.itdb. file



Once you have removed this file, close the Finder window and relaunch
iTunes.

Launching iTunes will restore a new iTunes Library Genius.itdb file
and as a result, no longer see the Error 13010 alert message.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the event that this procedure does not allow you to launch iTunes normally, you should remove iTunes and re-install the application.

But don't worry though, you will not lose your iTunes Library, as that remains untouched in the Music folder.

You are simply going into your Applications folder and removing iTunes application and then reinstalling it.

Here is the link for downloading and re-installing iTunes, as needed:
Download iTunes '09 for Mac

So now you have at least one workaround, from a number of iTunes errors, should it manifest, which you can use to resume normal functionality of your iTunes application.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will be providing more tips in future articles covering workarounds like this, for the various error codes which can affect the functionality of either the Mac OS X platform or any applications installed within its volume.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As always, I hope this information proves beneficial to you in some way, if not now, in the future, should such an error like this adversely affects your iTunes application.

Thanks for reviewing this Mac OS X Fixya Tip.

Regards,

i can't install some applications/games and my computer always says fmod.dll error.


Due to the fact that your operating system is for some reason missing a critical .dll, rather than going through the lengthy process of restoring it, your best solution is to backup all the files on your computer you'd wish to keep, and do a complete reinstall of your operating system, if the problem continues to occur, you may have malicious software on your system.
