Problem is with iTunes


hi try this: The intention is to remove all iTunes and Quicktime software references. The following steps remove the software traces and worked on my machine. 1. Using add/remove programs uninstall Quicktime (click on Start ?> Settings ?> Control Panel ?> Add/Remove Programs) 2. Using add/remove programs uninstall iTunes 3. Right click on My Computer, use Search and remove all programs named Quicktime 4. Right click on My Computer, use Search and remove all programs named iTunes (except your iTunes download, so you won?t have to sit through another long download session). 5. Left click on Start, click Run, type ?regedit?, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, click on SOFTWARE, and remove the Apple Programs folder (you may want to check in case you have other Apple applications, but all I had were iTunes and Quicktime in my Apple folder). Steps 1 through 5 should remove all traces of the software and now you can install iTunes. make sure you install all the latest updates from apple hope this will work for you :)

  • You upgraded to Windows XP Service Pack 2. Windows XP Service Pack 2, by default, enables the Windows Firewall. As with a third-party firewall, you will need to configure Windows Firewall to allow iTunes to access the iTunes Store. To do so:
    1. From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.
    2. If the Control Panel is in Classic View, skip to step 3, otherwise open Security Center.
    3. Open Windows Firewall.
    4. Click the Exceptions tab.
    5. Select the iTunes checkbox to enable it as shown here:
      1. ts1368_1.jpg
      2. Click OK.
      If you have further questions about configuring the Windows Firewall, contact Microsoft's Service Pack 2 hotline at (888) SP2-HELP. Read this article for compatibility information.

      Windows XP: C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC
      Windows 2000: C:WINNTSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC

      1. Select the hosts file. Then click the Edit menu, and choose Copy.
      2. Then, click the Edit menu again, and choose Paste. There should now be a duplicate of the hosts file named "Copy of hosts".
      3. Drag the original hosts file to your desktop.
      4. Right-click the "Copy of hosts" file and choose Open. You may be prompted to choose the program you want to use to open this file. Double-click Notepad.
      5. When Notepad opens, click the Edit menu and choose Select All. Then click the Edit menu, and choose Delete.
      6. Click the File menu, and choose Save. Close Notepad.
      7. Right-click the "Copy of hosts" file, and choose Rename. Type "hosts" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
      8. Restart your computer and try connecting to the iTunes Store.
      • Make sure that your computer meets the iTunes minimum system requirements.
      • Make sure that your operating system is up to date:
        • For Mac OS X, use Software Update to determine if you need to update your system.
        • For Windows, go to Microsoft's Windows Update webpage.
      • Make sure that you can access the Internet on your computer.
      • You may have firewall or other security software that is preventing your computer from connecting to the iTunes Store. Click here to find out which ports and servers need to be allowed for iTunes Store access.

Sometimes this error can be caused by software on your computer that slows down the network connection. This error can also appear if you are downloading multiple items. I'd like to provide some steps that should help you successfully download your purchases.

It often helps to pause the download and then download items one at a time. These steps will walk you through doing this:

1) Open iTunes.

2) From the Store menu at the top, choose Check for Available Downloads. If you're unable to upgrade and are using iTunes 7, the option will say Check for Purchases.

3) Enter your account name and password, then click Check. Your purchases should begin downloading.

4) Under the STORE section on the left, click Downloads.

5) Click the Pause All button in the lower-right corner. This will temporarily pause all of your downloads.

6) To resume only one of the downloads, click the refresh button that appears to the right of one of the paused downloads.

Certain types of software can affect the way a computer sends and receives information from the Internet. Here are a few examples of these types of software:

  • Firewalls
  • Web accelerators
  • Ad filters
  • Virus protection software

If you have any of this kind of software installed on your computer, you will need to configure each of the applications to allow your internet connection to access iTunes freely. For instructions, please refer to the documentation that came with that software, or contact the software's manufacturer. You'll need to configure the software to allow these domains to send and receive data from the Internet freely:

itunes.apple.com
ax.itunes.apple.com

For assistance in configuring your firewall or accelerator software, you may need to contact the manufacturer or your Internet service provider (ISP). When contacting their support representatives, it may be useful to have the following information:

"Well Known" TCP and UDP Ports Used By Apple Software Products
http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1629

The following article helps Windows users pinpoint software conflicts that could cause the error:
Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows XP
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1275

Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows Vista
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2292

Once you have managed to allow access to iTunes through other software, please follow these instructions:

1) Sign out of the iTunes Store.

2) Quit the iTunes application.

3) Restart your computer.

4) Open iTunes.

5) Select Check for Available Downloads from the Store menu at the top of iTunes, (if you're unable to upgrade and are using iTunes 7, you'll choose Check for Purchases).

If you can't find this option, you can also click this link to do the same thing:

https://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/checkForPurchases

6) Enter your account name and password, then click Check. The missing item should begin downloading and appear in your Purchased playlist.

Please note that the iTunes Store cannot investigate every user's connection issue. Apple Discussions are another source of information about iTunes, where everyone from new users to professionals can interact and share their knowledge and experiences. You may find another user with the same operating system or ISP that may be able to help resolve this issue. You can find the iTunes discussions group at:

http://discussions.info.apple.com/itunes

If you are using a dial-up connection, you might consider downloading your purchases over a broadband connection, if you have access to one.

Itunes says it cant connect to the itunes store because the internet isnt connected, but it is... what should i do?


Many connection issues can be resolved by configuring Internet-filtering software to recognize the iTunes application and the iTunes Store addresses (listed below).
(The following iTunes Store Internet addresses should be added as trusted domains to any filtering software that may be running:)
  • itunes.apple.com
  • ax.itunes.apple.com
  • albert.apple.com

  • You can configure your Internet software to allow iTunes to access the Internet. If you're using Norton Personal Firewall or Norton Internet Security, you will need to enable iTunes in your Firewall settings.

    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
