Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

I can connect to the internet but not to Itunes store, AIM...

I am running Vista and am having some problems with my connection. I use a Wireless router and haven't had problems in the past, but for whatever reason Itunes will not allow me to connect to their store. Furthermore, my AIM will not allow me to connect any longer. I downloaded a few other programs that will not allow my computer to contact with them either.

I am instantly getting the message 'Network Connection timed out' from Itunes store.

Itunes is not out of date. My firewall is set to allow communication with Itunes.

I even performed this remedy:

The "hosts" file may be blocking the iTunes Store Find and rename your hosts file to "backup-hosts." Restart the computer to generate a new file. The hosts file is normally found in the following locations:

I'm assuming my ISP isn't the problem because the store has always worked in the past.

Any Ideas?
I have the same problem, including the loss of AIM. I'm using a 3 month old HP laptop, which worked fine until I traded my old 30G Ipod video(bad battery) for a refurb. I connected it and D-loaded my music fine, but the next day I started getting this timed out message. spent hours with Apple support at 2 levels and still no go! I've set the laptop to defaults and still no go! Help!!!

Turn off your windows firewall and try connecting again.
If it connects then windows is the culprit.
It shouldn't be your iPod, but it definitely sounds like a firewall issue or an internet connection issue.

The windows firewall is pretty harsh when it comes to programs that they don't endorse.
also, If you want to keep your firewall on, open the security center and firewall, uncheck the box on the bottum to allow exclusion of http: site. It could be checked and only allowing exclusion of https: sites.

Good Luck

How to install or put games in apple itouch


Well first you need to have an account with apple and depending on how you want to install it, if its from either the ipod or your itunes you will have to download the game from the app store on the ipod and once you download it will install itself. To do it from the ipod you will need wireless internet and your ipod will have to connect to your router. If you do if from itunes you will download the app from the itunes store and sync it to your ipod when you plug it in.
Hope this helps.

My i-pod touch (8Gb) can't connect to internet


This worked for me: Went into SETTINGS > Wi-Fi > Selected my Network (which my iPod said I was already connected to) > Selected "Forget this Network" (which disconnects you from your network) > Re-selected my network and under password, I entered the 'Security Key' from my Verizon FIOS Tech Wizard info and the device accessed the app store successfully.

Ok your problem is the internet connection. If iTunes says there is no internet connection, there is no connection. Try closing itunes and starting it up again. Let me know what happens.

ITunes freezes after 8.1 upgrade on Vista PC


Apple has made it harder and harder to use our ipods over the last upgrade especially.
I am running itune 8 on vista home basic and I have the same problem.
But since I repair ipods i put numerous ipods on this system and it doesn;t work that great with any of them.
although I have found one solution that really has helped with alot of connection issues and ipod crashing in vista. I installed a usb 2.0 card in my computer and only use it for my ipod cable and it has helped.
Most of the iPods and iPhones only will connect with a 2.o usb port anymore.
So if you have a usb 2.0 use it, if you need drivers get them and reinstall them in your computer to get the fast usb connection. it is still slow in itunes but it's much better.

as for iTunes 8 and why it crashes, well it is an apple product. the don;t care about the ipod, it's a throw away product for them. They want you to buy a new one. But in this day and age, they should give us a break and start making the products so they are user friendly. Thats why Mac has never really exploded. They are too expensive and they don;t support their products. Even the Geniuses at the genius bars in Apple store done know **** about their own products, they just give refubished ****.

Good luck and sorry for the Rant!!!

Trying to download the aim APP on my itouch?


I'm pretty sure it was asking for your iTunes password. Have you created an iTunes account yet? You need that account to download pretty much everything from the iTunes store, including free apps like AIM. Signing up for the account is pretty easy. Follow this link:
