I am not very tech savy but trying to learn..my main goal with this is to be able to download e-books as I love to read. I have been able to download the e-reader format however not being able to get onto the internet prevents me from getting to the specific sites.I would be grateful for any suggestions just keep in mind that I am your basic non-geek in training! oh sometimes when I try to get on it asks for a password as stated none tried accepted other times for dhcp or boot or static? tried dhcp but then left withip,subnet etcthen there is http proxy do i put it on manual..auto.and sometimes it asks for url not sure where to get all of these I think that I have some of the information but feel like I am playing the lottery trying to put in the winning combination. Again remember please simple directions for this dyslexic non geek thank you in advance for any and all help

I had the same problem.  Go to settings and see which networks show up with a dark signal icon (the ones that look like black fans). The one's that are gray are not available.  Next see if the dark signal has a lock in front of it.  If so, pick the one that doesn't.  The locked ones require password access.  On my iPod Touch, only the apple network had a dark signal icon without a lock.  I chose it and have been online since.

I erased all content on my itouch 8 gig and it now asks me to connect to i tunes now what


You should just reconnect to iTunes, and use iTunes to restore your content. If you don't sync your iPod and iTunes that often, then you will have to go back into the App Store, and iTunes and re-download your previously purchased content. Don't worry, they never charge you to download something you already paid for. The App Store has a great new feature when you go into the "purchases" menu, there is a list of everything you previously purchased that is not on the device. So, connect your iPod and allow it to set up and sync your device, and then go back to "purchases" in both iTunes, and the App Store, and you should be able to get everything back. If you're like me, and you sync your iPod at least once per week, you will have most of your content already backed up in ITunes, and replacing your content will be a breeze. Good luck.

Cant download apps


Is it necessary to "sync" this unit with your computer? Try this and see if that will help. Or see if you can download the files to the computer (downloads file) and see if you can transfer them then to the itouch.

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.

I cannot access the iTunes store. I get an itunes store: error -50


The following alerts may appear when trying to download purchased content from the iTunes Store:
"There was an error downloading your purchased music. An unknown error occurred (-50)." This can happen when the connection timeout occurs while downloading purchased content from the iTunes Store. Certain types of software may also 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
try to disable them for a while when you download something from iTunes.

Downloading applications to ipod touch


Hi,   The easiest way to download to your iTouch is directly to your iTouch via the Apple Store. The Apple Store icon is already on your iTouch. Just make sure you are near an internet connection via Airport or Wi Fi. Click on "Download" on the selected app, and then wait a couple of seconds. Your iTouch will indicate when the download is done and the app is installed. You will see the new icon on your your screen page.
  If you install from your computer, you will have to plug your iTouch into the computer and use the  iTunes app to control what you download. 
  I hope that helps.   Shari Dyer
