Cannot connect to itunes store

I downladed the itunes program onto my computer with no problem. But Ive never been able to connect to the itunes store. I'm connected to the internet. I've done everything it tells you to do to fix it from the apple support site. Nothing has worked. I've reinstalled, done some kind of flush thing, theres no new updates that need to be done. Nothing works. Please help.

How to install google play store app onto my asus laptop

You can not download the apps from the Play Store. The apps in the Play Store are written to run using the Android Operating system. Your laptop is more than likely uses a Windows operating system. The two systems are not compatible. Just like you can't run Macintosh programs on your Windows laptop. Sorry.

Itunes wont open

A corrupt iTunes library prevents the iTunes program from opening and prevents Apple device synchronization. According to Apple, the iTunes library must be rebuilt, which resets the library and removes the current content in the media manager. Back up your media prior to recreating the library, as the recreating process erases all content and your Apple device will synchronize with the blank, recreated library and erase the device's information.

Insert the DVD-RW disc into the computer's DVD-RW drive, and open iTunes. Click "File," "Library" and "Backup to Disc." Select the iTunes library and playlist backup and click "Next." Eject the disc after the backup completes, and close out of iTunes. Move "iTunes Music Library.xml" from your iTunes folder to the desktop. Right-click "iTunes Library" and click "Delete." Launch iTunes and click "File," "Library" and "Import Playlist." Locate and double-click the iTunes Music Library.xml file. Insert the burned disc into the DVD-RW drive and click "Restore." or
Fix iTunes if It Won't Open on Your Computer b> You've clicked and clicked and clicked some more, but iTunes just refuses to launch. A non responsive program is frustrating to any computer user, but especially if all you want to do is listen to some music or download a new album. If iTunes isn't opening, there are many possible causes for this error. None of these fixes will affect your current music collection. Though you may need to tweak or reinstall some software, your MP3s will stay right where they are.

Confirm that your Apple device is connected securely to your computer. If you are not trying to access iTunes via an Apple device, or if your device is connected correctly, continue to step two. Configure your firewall to allow iTunes to connect to the Internet. Many firewalls block software programs' ability to get online as a security precaution. This is because some spyware and malware is designed to transmit personal data from your computer. Making iTunes a trusted program within your firewall software is necessary for it to function properly. Create a new iTunes library file. An unstable or corrupted library file can cause iTunes to suddenly quit or not open at all. Recreating a library file is a lengthy process that depends heavily on the operating system you are using. See the iTunes Support page under. Reinstall iTunes on your computer. If no other troubleshooting steps are successful, then the fastest way to solve the problem is to start from scratch. Hope this helps.

You need to have iTunes installed on the computer. Once installed, plug in your iPod and iTunes will recognize it. From there you can either create an account and purchase tunes from iTunes store or insert a cd and load the songs onto computer then select songs you want to put on iPod. It is pretty straight forward once you have iTunes.
Hope this helps!

My bosses ipad wont start up and shows itunes and nothing else is the only way to sort this out to pay for itunes

iTunes is a FREE program. Download it from Apple's website.

The iPad is in recovery mode. iTunes will restore the iOS on the device. After the installation of iTunes, plug the pad in and follow the instructions. Quite simple, about 15 minutes and it will be good as new.

I am trying to download itunes onto my laptop but it wont let me download more than 76%

you sure your problem is the 'download' part?? or is it the installation part??

if it's the download part I would suggest for you to attempt to download the installation file in another computer, put it on the thumb drive and bring it over to the laptop where you want to install the itunes.

if you have problems installing itunes you probably may want to uninstall
the following programs and in the following order
  1. iTunes
  2. QuickTime
  3. Apple Software Update
  4. Apple Mobile Device Support
  5. Bonjour
  6. Apple Application Support (iTunes 9 or later)
if you can't uninstall them with 'add and remove programs', I would suggest to use this windows uninstaller and clean up utility

only once you have uninstalled all the programs above, run the itunes installer and all the programs updated will be installed one at a time.

hope this helps

Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes

I think it might have to do with Toshiba's OEM version of windows that is put onto the laptop. There is so many programs installed normally that i think theres system files that are incompatible with certain programs that require them. Probably a retail version of windows then installing just the drivers for the hardware and install just the software you want would take care of the problem in that way.

In the meantime though my other suggestion would be to use a program like Nero or Roxio Media Creator to burn your music onto cd's. That could do the trick.
