Hi crag81,
I understand you are receiving error 13010 when trying to open iTunes. If you are using iTunes 8.0.2. I suggest you upgrade (but if you cannot): Remove the Genius database In the "Finder" go to the /username/Music/iTunes/ directory and delete the "iTunes Library Genius.itdb" file. This should allow the program to launch again. This file will be recreated upon first use of the "Genius" feature.

If you are windows, Remove the Genius database In the "My Documents" go to the /My Documents/Music/iTunes/ directory and delete the "iTunes Library Genius.itdb" file. This should allow the program to launch again. This file will be recreated upon first use of the "Genius" feature.

NOTE: If your using Vista or WIN 7 go to /yourusername/Music (one directory back from My Music (from above =)),

Ive tried downloading itunes but it keeps on saying some error has occured and when it does download it says itunes has encountered an error so they need to close


iTunes.exe has been set to run in compatibility mode for an older version of Windows. For best result, turn off compatibility mode of iTunes before you open it.

2. Click Start, type regedit, then press Enter.
3. Navigate to this Registry location:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
4; Its better you clean/repair Windows registry with RegInOut.
4. Look in the main pane for a key that refers to iTunes. If you find one, delete it, then exit the Registry.
5. Start iTunes. The offending message should be gone!

ITunes Error 13010 - How to correct this error in iTunes


As with any application in any operating system in this high tech computer industry today, there is always going to an error of some kind. How that error can be eliminated, is always the principal concern of any computer user of a Mac or PC.

One of the errors I would like to provide a tip for you, on how to resolve, is the "Error 13010" error message, which affects users of iTunes in Mac OS X.

The Error 13010 alert, will usually appear when a user is unable to launch and open iTunes. More often than not, however, the fix for this error is a relatively easy one.

Here are steps for you can implement to eliminate this error:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For Mac OS X

• Make sure iTunes application is closed.

• Click anywhere on the blank space of your desktop and Finder will appear near the Apple menu icon located in the upper left corner of your screen.

• From the Finder menu click on Go> then select Go to Folder

• You will need to type /Users/td7/Music/iTunes in the open dialog
box:

• This will take you directly to your iTunes folder.

• Within iTunes folder, locate and remove to the Trash,
the iTunes Library Genius.itdb. file

Once you have removed this file, close the Finder window and relaunch
iTunes.

Launching iTunes will restore a new iTunes Library Genius.itdb file
and as a result, no longer see the Error 13010 alert message.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the event that this procedure does not allow you to launch iTunes normally, you should remove iTunes and re-install the application.

But don't worry though, you will not lose your iTunes Library, as that remains untouched in the Music folder.

You are simply going into your Applications folder and removing iTunes application and then reinstalling it.

Here is the link for downloading and re-installing iTunes, as needed:
Download iTunes '09 for Mac

So now you have at least one workaround, from a number of iTunes errors, should it manifest, which you can use to resume normal functionality of your iTunes application.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will be providing more tips in future articles covering workarounds like this, for the various error codes which can affect the functionality of either the Mac OS X platform or any applications installed within its volume.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As always, I hope this information proves beneficial to you in some way, if not now, in the future, should such an error like this adversely affects your iTunes application.

Thanks for reviewing this Mac OS X Fixya Tip.

Regards,

Everytime I try to sync my itouch to download music on itunes it keeps popping up the ipod"Ariel's Ipod" cannot be synced. An unkown error occurred(13019).


Make sure that your 'C:' drive has enough "free" disk-space (64GB if you have a 64GB iPod Touch) to make a backup.

If you do, then use iTunes to "reset" the iPod to its "factory" settings, and then it will sync your iTunes Library to the iPod.

I am trying to open up iTunes, I get the following error message: the iTunes application could not be opened. An unkown error has occurred [13014]. Thanks


Close itunes, and go into windows explorer.
Get rid of the file named iTunes Library 8 Genius.itdb

You can always rebuild Genius results after you get itunes running properly again.

Every time sync ipod get 13010 error what wrong?


Hey,
Try running a disk check on the iPod using the tools provided by Windows.
1. Plug in your iPod and close iTunes.
2. Go to "My Computer". Click on the iPod drive once. Go to File, and then click Properties.
3. Go to the Tools tab. Under "Error Checking", click Check Now.
4. Check both boxes. One says "Automatically fix file system errors" and the other says "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors". Place a check mark next to each of these options and hit Start.

The scan may take several minutes or more to complete, but once it has, go ahead and restart iTunes, and try re-syncing files to your iPod.

Others have had luck with the solution provided in this Apple support document. It does say error 50 but may apply to your situation as well. It's worth a shot.

I tried doengradin it and i guess i messed up and now every time i switch on my ipod it says connect to i tunes i guess its stuck in recovery mode i tried restorin it but it says it cant(please read f


Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode". Restore your ipod to either a backup of that ipod if there is one, or set up a new ipod. (setting up a new ipod will fix any previous problem) (hopefully)
