Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
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Itunes is not out of date.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.
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.
