Applications :: ITunes Corrupted, All Of OS Corrupted - Can Installing Clean Copy Of Os X Fix It

Sep 15, 2009

For the past few months, I've tried to restore my iPod Classic because it randomly restarts itself, not to mention moving on the following song during the middle of a song that is already playing. However, it seems iTunes won't restore it. The following message appears every time I try to do this:

The link takes me here:


But that website simply doesn't help me out. I've taken my iMac to a Genius and he basically said that something is corrupted in OS X. I should mention the fact that programs such as Onyx and Maintenance claim that I am not the admin when in fact, my account is the only account on the computer. The funny thing was that I created a new account and restored the iPod through there, it would work just fine.

So, besides that long explanation of my problem, is there anyway I can fix this without having to resort to placing all my files on an external and installing a clean copy of OS X? Would archiving and installing back to Leopard do the trick?

I used Software Update to update everything and after the installation I realized the new iTunes isn`t working.

ITunes :: Not Able To Download Song Due To Corrupted File

Apr 13, 2012

I am experiencing difficulties downloading a song from the iTunes Marketplace on my MacBook Pro.I recently purchased a new album by Of Monsters and Men and track 4 of the Album 'Slow And Stead' refuses to complete. I keep receiving an error: "There was a problem downloading 'Slow and Stead / My Head Is An Animal / Of Monsters and Men' The file seems to be corrupted. To redownload the file, choose 'Check for Available Downloads' from the Store menu." On the download page of iTunes it reads: zero kb of 10.2 MB - stopped (err = -100000).

I have attempted to download this file numerous times and nothing has worked. Here is what I have done so far:I have contacted iTunes support to report the problem. It has not been several days and no response.I have gone to the Disk Utility and did the Repair Disk Permissions option.I went to UsersUserMusiciTunesiTunes MusicDownloads and deleted and files that were located in this location. Anytime I did a deletion or repair I have restarted my computer.I have run out of options on what I need to do next.

ITunes :: Update Could No Be Verified - Corrupted During Downloading

Jun 17, 2012

I am attempting to update to the lastest version of iTunes and receive the following error message:"The update could not be verified. It may have been corrupted during downloading. The update will be downloaded and checked again the next time that Software Update runs."Every subsequent time that Software Update runs it restarts the download from where it was interrupted, and gives the same error prior to completion.It seems obvious to me that the partial file I have on the computer is where the corruption lies, and I would like to delete it and start the update from the beginning.The question is, where is the partial file stored, and what is it called?

My PDF displays properly in Windows and Mac, but after optimizing it with Acrobat 8 Pro on Windows, it looks corrupted in Mac Preview. Funny thing is, this same PDF loads correctly in Acrobat on Mac. Each line of text jumbles on top of each other based on justification.

Applications :: Files Corrupted - Making Impossible To Sync / Backup

Oct 30, 2010

For the last 6 months my Mac has been a nightmare to use. It keeps randomly finding files to Corrupt - usually a purchased itunes file - music, video, podcast, etc. So every time I go and sync my music library it randomly picks a file to corrupt which ends up stopping the sync. This happens when I try and use Time Machine, backup iPhoto, copy my files to an external drive, etc. And I've used disc repair as well. And it'll sync one device fine but then decide it's corrupted on another. It renders my Macbook practically useless if I can't work with my files. I ran disk utility and there's nothing wrong with my HD.

Applications :: Unable To Open Keynote Presentation File - File Corrupted?

Oct 18, 2010

Today I tried opening my keynotes presentation file to make amendments to it and when I double clicked on it, the program loading bar only loaded up a third of the way and then hanged. I then tried to save it to a flash drive and use it on a different computer, but when I tried to copy it over to the flash drive it gave me this error: "the finder cannot complete the operation because some data in "garment styles" could not be read or written error code - 36".

I have tried changing the file extension to a zip, then unzipping it and then renaming it but that did not work.(It wouldn't let me unzip it). I have also looked at the index file name to see if that was the problem, but that is as it should be.

I have also tried uploading it to a website and emailing it and it will not let me.

Is there anyway I can recover this file as I have been working on it for over a month and it is due next week, or will I need to start again?

Software :: Mac OS X 10.4 Crashed And Get Corrupted

Sep 4, 2009

I was working my mac using the terminals. I logged in as root using sudo root, and I changed the permission for /urs folder to 754. I should not have done this but I was intending to change /usr/local/svn. Now all the terminals wont open and after the os crashed I tried to log in but that is not happening either. I have tried to boot in safe mode, it is not helping. I was wondering if any one knows if it is possible to log in as root or system. Because at the moment the only thing that seems to be possible way out is to try and repair the OS with the install disk, which I think is risky.

Software :: Update Corrupted OS

Aug 17, 2010

My friend last night came home with a smile on his face and an iPhone4 in his pocket, he was told to download itunes to sync up and activate his new phone, i told him to wait till I came round but as normal users are he went ahead and downloaded a 400mb upgrade which contained itunes, quicktime and apparently an OS upgrade. Once downloaded he rebooted as told and the upgrade started, once expanded it then complained saying the source was corrupted, reboot to boot the mac... this is where things went downhill.

On reboot he gets a boot failure when the linux part of the OS loads up with a failed boot, all sorted of flags and memory tokens in top left of screen, greyed out and a reboot dialog in the middle of the screen. Macbok is black and the OS i think is ver 9.6(personaly i not worked on macs in nearly 10 years) so am not upto speed on how to fix, repair or reinstal.

As expected, my m8 has no original media, and no backups and is well stuck being completly useless at doing anything right with a computer.

Is there any public shareware tools i can search for and burn to cd so i can boot it up and connect a usb drive to copy the contents off, then somehow repair the OS.

OS X :: IMac Very Slow - Has Corrupted Fonts?

Feb 6, 2009

I have an iMac that runs quite slowly after a few hours use, especially when using Photoshop and other Adobe software. What happens is, the processor gets completely swamped with "System" tasks (shown in Activity Monitor as red bars), the result being that "User" tasks are slow and the mouse jumps around the screen, rendering the computer almost useless. I've done a bunch of disk utilities including Leopard's onboard Disk Utility as well as OnyX, and although some errors were found, it was nothing serious. And after repairing, problems persisted.

Now, here's the thing. When I open Console, most of the errors are Adobe-related (mostly Photoshop and Dreamweaver). And I just ran a "Validate Fonts" check in Font Book, and found 15 fonts that have "serious errors, do not use".

So, I've often heard that Leopard, Adobe CS3, and corrupted fonts are a lethal combination. Not that I'm asking anyone to diagnose my problems from across the world, but does this sound like it could be the root of my problem? And if so, what's the proper process for removing the dangerous fonts so they can't ruin anything? Do I just delete them, or do corrupted fonts cause deeper problems which might necessitate reinstallation?

OS X :: Corrupted User Account - How To Restorte

Dec 19, 2010

I run day-to-day in a non-Admin account. About 18 months ago, the in the menu bar has gone from 100% black to 50% black to 25% black, alternating horizontally. This happens only in my non-Admin account.
A few days ago, I have not been able to properly log off of MobileMe or access the Account info. I get this screen:

Again, it only happens in my day-to-day non Admin account. I can access these fine in my other accounts.
My AppleCare warranty runs out next month. So I am going to take my 2007 24", 2.4GHz, 4GB iMac to the Apple Store to see what's what.

Can they restore my account and still keep all my additions/modifications to my account and still be able to fix it?

OS X :: How To Recover Data From A Possible Corrupted Folder?

Jan 31, 2009

would need some help on this matter.

- It's on an external hdd, 1tb Western Digital MyBook hooked via firewire.
- It's a folder containing music (MP3 + FLAC).
- All the data in that folder is gone, 0 file, tried on my Macbook and Windows desktop and both came out with the same result.
- External HDD is NTFS, using Paragon NTFS on my Macbook.
- The data are still in the hdd, just that it doesn't show any data in the folder, because the space used is still there + the songs still play on my media player library list.

So main problem here is, how what do I need to do to view the data in that folder now.

OS X :: Spotlight Search Icons Corrupted?

Feb 11, 2009

Recently the application icons in Spotlight's search window look odd. There's no problem with the search itself, Spotlight hasn't slowed down, the indexing seems ok, in fact the whole system appears to be ok, let aside these odd looking icons.

Logging out or restarting the system works for a while, 3 Spotlight searches to be precisely, the icons are fine for a while, but the fourth search returns every application icon the way it is seen on the screenshots I made.

OS X :: Recovering Files From Corrupted USB Drive?

Jul 20, 2009

The USB flash drive is Sandisk, 4GB, formatted for Mac. It became corrupted and I don't have access to stored files. The messages on screen is that disk can not be read and invitation to reformat it. I found special software for recovering files from corrupted drives but it is not affordable for a student like me. I've tried to find in forums and word of mouth some shareware/freeware working on Mac OS 10.3.9 but all I got is programs that take space on HD and do nothing, that is, software that is about selling and marketing stuff, not the real thing. Tried with 3 different such a programs, sheer time wasting. I found that this area is pretty much absolutely dark. Do experienced fellow mac users know about some truly working shareware/freeware that can help me retrieve the files from this corrupted Sandisk USB flash drive?

OS X :: Updates Not Expanded - Corrupted During Downloading

Dec 16, 2009

Trying to install downloaded updates, I get this, over and over: "The update could not be expanded, and may have been corrupted during downloading. The update will be downloaded and checked again the next time that Software Update runs." There are four updates waiting that I have tried to install as a group and individually. Part way through the installation it says "An error has occurred". When I click OK the above message shows up. Is it me, the computer, the connection, the server, what?

OS X :: Don't Have Permissions To View Files - Corrupted?

Jul 22, 2010

I performed an erase and install of Snow Leopard and then used Migration assistant to transfer all my data back to my computer. After that I noticed that on my 2 other internal hard drives, most of my folders had a red minus sign over them and when I clicked the folder it said "The Folder can't be opened because you don't have permissions to see its content". I clicked get info and under sharing and permissions there was a name that said "unknown". was this the newly created account which I had deleted? Afterwards I added my account and applied it to all my files and folders. I can now access all my files and folders. But now my question is weather or not my files became corrupt or was it just a permissions issue? Also What caused the permissions issue in the first place?

OS X Server :: Display Corrupted After Login?

Feb 26, 2007

I have recently had a problem with one of our servers (running OsX 10.4.8 Server). Normally I connect remotely via Chicken of the VNC, as it doesn't have a graphics card and is in another room. Connecting works fine and the display is perfect (see [URL] until that is, I try to log in. Once logged in (doesn't matter as what user, even tried a completely new one) the display instantly becomes illegible, with each row seemingly shifted 10 or so pixels to the right as you go down the display (see [URL] All directory, file and web services function correctly and the remote VNC connection is responsive (for example if you can guess where the logout button is, it will return to the perfectly displayed login screen...), but I am at a loss as to what is causing this and/or how to fix it, short of a clean install, but since it is a heavily used production server, I am loath to take it offline for that long. Any advice, tips or even solutions would be fantastic, I have been googling around for a week or so and comparing System and Library directories file by file with one of our other servers to see if there's something obvious, but to no avail.

Software :: Images And Other Data Getting Corrupted

Aug 9, 2009

I have an imac, running 10.4.11. Suddenly I'm having a problem viewing images I've loaded onto the computer. I get the following error - "Couldn't open the file. It may be corrupt or a file format that Preview doesn't recognize." It's very random though. Initially I may be able to view the file (typically a .jpeg), then later I can't, or some of it appears but it's corrupted.

I've tried this using pictures from several different digital cameras/memory cards, so I don't think it's a fault on that end. Also, I've had some problems merely opening up screenshots, and TextEdit files - though again, this seems random. Thinking there might be cache issues, I cleared the history folder, but that didn't help.
