What is unknown error 42003 it happens when I try to do an i tunes download


Try this steps:

1. Sort it by deleting the partial download then let itunes download the whole file again

2. Close iTunes then go into the library in your browser (default for windows is C:\Documents and Settings\Username\My Documents\My Music\iTunes Media or for mac Users\Username\Music\iTunes\iTunes Music) and in with the the artist folders you have stored in there one will be called downloads.

3. In downloads folder there will be the partial file that you currently downloaded, delete that folder.

4. Re-open iTunes, if it doesn't automatically start, download it again then go to check for available downloads.

Hope it will help....

Trying to use tunes transfer. Have installed the software and connected my ipod. When I try to open the program the error message says, "exception processing message C0000013" and my ipod does not show...


Try TouchCopy - it copied all my songs, videos, playlists, playcounts, artwork, and other song data to my new iTunes library. It's very easy to use, and it stops your iPod from auto-syncing. Works with all iPods and iPhone

Can't open itunes


You need to reinstall Itunes and point it towards the correct drive/folder again. When you attached the second hard drive it would have fouled the pointers in iTunes.

Can't get itunes to work


The error message “The folder iTunes cannot be found or created”. It was referring to the My Music directory that is usually located in the My Documents folder on the partition containing the operating system. The iTunes software creates an iTunes folder in the My Music directory on first start and if that directory is not accessible it will throw the error message and fail to load.
Since this error is related to the My Music folder it is important to check the directory path of that folder in the Windows Registry. This is best done by using the shortcut [Windows R], typing [regedit] and hitting the [enter] key.
The fastest way of location the two locations that contain path information for the My Music folder is to use the search by pressing [F3] and entering [My Music] in the search box. A click on [Find Next] will start the search and reveal the two locations.
The test computer system did not have path information listed at all. This can be changed by double-clicking the My Music key in the Registry and changing the path to an valid path manually.
The two Registry locations that list the My Music path are the following two:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
Make sure both point to a valid path on the system. Once the path has been changed iTunes will create the iTunes folder in that location and start up without this error message.

Please back up your registry before doing this. messing in the registry can make your computer stop functioning.

Make sure you follow the correct registry entry.

Disk is Locked Error


If the My Music folder is in the wrong location or incorrectly assigned in the Windows registry, you may see one of the following error messages:
  • "The folder iTunes is on a locked disk or you do not have write permissions for this folder."
  • "The folder iTunes cannot be found or created and is required. The default location for this folder is inside the Music folder."

If you see one of the above errors, follow these steps to troubleshoot this:
  1. Verify the location of your Windows XP My Music folder. The default location for this folder is
    C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Music
    If you do not have this folder at the default location and have not moved it to another location, consider creating one inside your My Documents folder.
  2. Download and install Tweak UI from the Microsoft PowerToys website at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx Note: This utility is for Windows XP only. Please review the system requirements before installing.
  3. Once you have installed Tweak UI, open it from the Start menu.
  4. In the column on the left, click on the plus symbol (+) next to My Computer and select Special Folders. ht1866_01.jpg
  5. In the right pane on the Folderlist, click My Music.
  6. Click the Change Location button. You may see a warning message appear with precautions for changing this setting; after reviewing the message, click Yes. ht1866_02.jpg
  7. In the resulting window, browse for the My Music folder as described in step 1, and click OK. ht1866_03.jpg
  8. Reinstall or open iTunes.
