OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cannot Access App Store Or ITunes With IMac Or IPod
Mar 9, 2012
I am having some problems accessing the App Store or iTunes using MacBook Pro or iMac since I upgraded both devices to Mac OsX Lion 10.7.3 (11D50b)
a couple of weeks ago. I receive this error at each attempt: "This is not a test user account. Please create a new account in the Sandbox environment. [Environment: Sandbox]". Both devices are not jailbroken.
I have an old macbook that has all my songs on, as well as my iPod. I have recently got an iMa which currently has no music on, how would I transfer the music from the iPod to the new iMac, or alternatively from the old Macbook to the iMac?
I used to be able to download apps from the US store, but now am told my Apple ID is only valid for the Thai store. (I live in Thailand) My Thai store page only appears in the Thai la gauge, which I cannot read.
Starting yesterday, I can no longer access iTunes Store via iTunes. I've not changed any settings whatsoever on my MBP. The only thing I've recently done is run an advertised security update a couple of days ago. When I start iTunes and click on iTunes Store it just says "Accessing iTunes Store...", but never loads anything. I can update my podcasts with no problems. Could this new security update have screwed something up?
I have a macbook pro with OS 10.7 Lion, only 6 months old but cant acces movies or itunes on the store to buy. All other features on itunes store seem ok ie Apps, books, podcast etc i have tried updating s/w and all other first line suggestions in the manual with no success.
Info: MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), I have apple care protection plan.
I'm trying to run iTunes Match and it simply stalls at stage 1. Yes, I believe I've tried the fixes listed in other places where this seems to have been an ongoing issue since launch - and not all of these work for the people there, either. These include removing stoping and starting Match, stopping and starting Genius, stopping and starting Genius and Match, moving the iTunes Library files and reimporting them as new libraries and so on. Nothing is working for me.
I run iTunes match and it matches "most" of my songs and then stalls. I've left it for days to see how long the stall is and it never clears.Over the last few days' stops and starts, it's matched as follows:
iTunes frequently also can't access the iTunes Store or comes up with unknown errors.this is an entirely new music library. I set up my Mac from scratch a few months ago with a new SSD. My music library had a lot of old files sampled at low bit rates - I was re-ripping to flac for my hifi, so I decided to re-rip to iTunes as well at the same time (my previous iTunes Match had lots of stuff it couldn't match, but was uploaded at a low bit rate since that was all that was available). My network connection is wired and I have very good broadband (cable) speed.
Using a G4 with Mac OS 10.3. Unfortunately the computer hasn't been used in a few years and the software on it is out-of-date. It runs Itunes 5. Itunes radio stations work, but I can't access the music store, podcast directory, or sign in to my account. Is Itunes 5 not allowed to access the music store anymore?
I have used an iBook G4 for a year and a half I only use wireless Internet connections. I recently started getting error messages when I tried to perform a Software Update. The error reads: "Software Update can't connect to the update server. Make sure you're connected to the Internet, then try again. Software Update can't check for updates because of a network problem."
Perhaps at the same time (I hadn't paid too much attention at first) I found that I was unable to connect to the iTunes Store. This error message read: "iTunes could not connect to the iTunes Store. The network connection was refused. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active, then try again." A google search shows that the second error message is common among PC users who think apple is conspiring to keep them out of the iTunes store with iTunes v7.1.1. I don't know about network settings but I don't make a point of ever fiddling with them. I assume both of these problems are symptoms of the same network mess-up. Can anyone steer me clear?
I am unable to access the iTunes Store on my Macbook. I open iTunes and try to go to the iTunes Store. All that is there is a blank screen. When I try to search for something, it stays on the blank screen. I have completely updated the iTunes software and am still experiencing the same issues.
my imac 2.4 core2duo died. i immediately bought a new 21.5" 2.8 i7 iMac. The only thing I regretted was that I lost my music catalog - imported from PC to the first iMac and added to, this included the napster hey day stuf too.
I just realized that all that old stuff is also on an old iPod that i have (how I transferred the music to the iMac 2.4 in the first place.
How do I get this music into the new 21.5" iMac? The iTunes on the new computer allows me to play it from the iPod, but not move it into the iMac.
Info: iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4), 2.8 intel i7
i just got an iMac a few weeks ago and i used migration assistant to move everything from my macbook pro. but ever since then when i hook up my ipad and ipod they dont show up in itunes, they're charging though. im going to reinstall itunes now. any advice on how to make it work if this reinstallation doesnt work ?
I am running iTunes 10.6 on my iMac with OS X Lion. iTunes has worked flawlessly for years. Then yesterday it refused to sync either my iPod Nano or iPod Classic. It quits unexpectedly if you push the "sync" button. I was going to uninstall and reinstall iTunes, but I can't figure out how to uninstall. How to stop this crashing issue?
I decided on getting a 15 inch Macbook Pro instead of a 13. I am trying to lower the cost as much as possible. I will be getting the 8GB iPod touch with it to sell off since I already have an iPod. I see that there is also an offer for a rebate if you buy a printer with the Macbook. Will this offer still qualify with the iPod offer? Which printer has the best resell value? And it says up to $100, so if I get one of the $100 printers will I get a $100 rebate? Also I was looking in the forums and saw some post about promo codes? Are there any promo codes that can be used right now?
This upgrade sent out 5th/6th February 2010 has caused my family's iPods and my AppleTV to disconnect from the iTunes library and demand a return to factory settings for all units. Still have not got any of them to sync with the library or reload the back-up settings in the case of the iPods
I am running a MacBook Pro 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4GB memory
Several weeks ago I upgraded my mother's MacBook to Lion. I had also intended to buy lion for myself but my iMac's hard drive died.Since Lion was installed the MacBook's battery life has been very, very poor - even booting up can cost 5%. A lot of people gave been discussing this. I have googled this issue and emailed Apple, but there seems to be no solution on the horizon. So I am going to reinstall Snow Leopard on the MacBook. I had intended to contact Apple to see if a refund would be possible. However, just yesterday I replaced the hard drive in my iMac and it is working fine now. So I was wondering since I paid for the Lion OS, is okay for me to install it on my iMac rather than attempt to get a refund. Is that legal? And would it work? Would the fact that it was bought using my mother's AppleID (my money though ;)) mean that if I install it on my iMac it will make my computer my morher's computer - meaning my morher's login and details will overwrite mine?
I need to restore the original software on an imac and macbook but it wont let me do this without entering my apple id (app store log in) anyway around this? as I want the macs to appear new to the next user and without any of my info left on them .
