ITunes Mac :: Apple ID Not Working - Password Incorrect


My i-tunes/apple ID is not working. I actually had to CREATE a new apple ID to be able to post this. I know for a fact I am putting in the right password because it's been the same for about a year now. And It keeps saying it's incorrect. On my iPhone, iTunes, and all other Apple ID required programs. Even using the "forgot password" system it won't send me an email with the reset information, even though I am checking the email that my Apple ID was created with.

MacBook :: Changed Wireless Internet Password - Incorrect Password
In order to make my wireless internet network secure, I added a password to it today. Every other computer in the house, as well as my XBox 360, is able to connect to the internet using the password that I set up. For some reason, when I try to connect to my Macbook, it tells me that the password is wrong, yet it works with the other 3 computers in my house. What am I missing? Do I need to change my settings on Airport? My wireless router is obviously working so what do I need to do?

OS X Tiger :: Keychain, Password - Says Authentication Password Is Incorrect
Girlfriend's PC needed re-imaged, asked me for the password to her network. I go to keychain, click on her network, get asked for authentication password... and am told it is incorrect.
This is sudden. How can this be?

I am at my place, she is at hers. I shouldn't need to be on her network, should I? Doesn't make sense. All I wanted to do was view the password, but my MBP is telling me that my own authentication password is incorrect.

ITunes Mac :: Store - Apple ID - MobileMe Password Madness
Just sent this to support, sharing it here to see if others are coming unstuck with the recent changes of the iForgot and the password complexity that they've added. Essentially what must happen is that someone else thinks my account is their account, so after three attempts the account locks, and the password has to be changed.

Once again I'm getting prompts to reset my password because it has been entered too many times. I'm not entering it incorrectly. This security measure DOES NOT MAKE SENSE!!! If I have to reset my password for my iTunes account, this means I have to re-enter my password in DOZENS of places for MobileMe services (Mail, iDisk, Calendar, etc, etc) and multiple devices (MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, iPhone, iPad ...).............

ITunes Mac :: ITunes Creates/exports XML File Containing Incorrect Info?
There seem to be many one asked this question before but I found none of the solutions working for me.

I recently discovered the issue in iTunes Library.xml, it contains wrong info of certain song such as file location.

I have tried to remove the iTunes Library.xml file and let the program recreate but it doesn't solve the issue. Switched back & fourth the option "Keep iTunes Media folder organized" & manually modify the file also no effect, the latter changed back to the wrong info again after a while.

Then;

I tried to export a playlist containing the file with the issue. I exported the playlist to M3U & Unicode text, both contain the correct file paths then I tried to export the same playlist to XML, the exported file contains wrong file path.

With these experiments, I suspect it got something to do with XML export function of iTunes.

I'm using iTunes 10.1.1(4). Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.5.

I hope I can find solution soon as this is pretty annoying.

IChat AV 3 :: Cannot Login - ID Or Password Incorrect
Have been using iChat fine for ages, haven't used it for a while and have been trying to login for days and it just won't let me, coming up with a 'AOL Instant Messenger Login' message every time I try to switch from offline to available. My Apple ID is fine with iTunes and all other programs, the password is correct, I have tried setting up a new account with the same details, I have tried setting up a new AIM account, I have dumped all the iChat prefs, I have changed the port to 443. It lets me set up the account, accepts the password there but then as I soon as I try to go online up comes the pop up box from AOL telling me my login ID or password is incorrect.

OS X Tiger :: Cannot Connect Wirelessly On G4 - Password Incorrect
How I can get my PowerBook G4 to work with my new linksys router? I have tried everything, and nothing seems to work. When I go to connect to Airport and I choose my network which has been set up, I type in the network password for the router, but for some reason, I receive a message that the password is incorrect. I had this unit running wirelessly before on my old Linksys wrt54G but now am unable to connect using my linksys wrt160N Router. I have a wpa set up for security... I have downloaded the latest updates, but keep on getting the same messages.

IMac :: Incorrect Email Password After Installing Safari 4
I realize this is probably not related to a iMAC alone but that is what I have and am experiencing problems using my email. After installing Safari 4 I began to have problems. I attempted to use my email and was prompted to provide my password. This is very unusual because I have not had to do that since I got the machine going about 5 months ago. So I type in my password or what I thought it should be and it comes back with incorrect password. I have made a half dozen attempts to locate the correct pop-up or panel that will allow me to change my password to see if this will work. No luck, arm's up in the air until I contact Apple on Thursday unless someone points this Old Man in the correct direction and I get things working tonight or when I return from work tomorrow.:

ITunes Mac :: Displays Incorrect Number Of Songs?
I have an itunes library that shows 10K+ songs. I have imported these songs using the lossless setting. I have run a batch export of the entire library to convert all songs to MP3. I have created a new library on a seperate drive for this process. The problem is that the new MP3 library now shows over 13K songs. My original lossless library has gone through several updates over time. I have checked for duplicates but the new MP3 library appears to be the same as the original lossless. Can anyone tell me how to correct the number of songs in my original library?

IChat AV 3 :: Unable To Login AOL - Screen Name / Password Incorrect
I signed up for a new AIM account today and tried to log on with iChat, but cannot connect. This is the message I keep receiving: "iChat was unable to login to the AOL Instant Messenger service because your screen name or password was incorrect." I've seen some help if people get this message logging on with .mac or .me accounts, but nothing for AIM accounts. I've checked the log-information in the Accounts pane about 10 times to no avail. It's set to AIM account and I can log on if I go to the [URL] page.

I've tried switching to port 443 - doesn't work.
I've tried using "Use Default Settings" - doesn't work.
I've tried deleting the .plist files - doesn't work.
I've tried logging on with different AIM accounts - doesn't work.
I tried this morning and again tonight - makes no difference.

OS X Leopard :: User Password Incorrect/unknown After Migration Assistant?
I have just rebuilt an 3 year old iMac because it was having some issues.

My standard process starts with a pre-setup external drive with all system (10.5.8) and applications installed, this is then SuperDupered on to the internal iMac drive and then using Migration Assistant I copy across the user account and files. This has worked like a dream for the last couple of years until about a month ago when I had a glitch - the user password no longer works and the account is essentially locked. This wasn't a biggie back then as I was only really backing up the files.

But today I have had to rebuild a crucial machine (the General Managers) and the same thing has happened.

I have tried to change the password using the Sys Prefs/Accounts panel (which gave a 'command failed' warning) and resetting the password by booting from System disk (which said it had worked). Neither of which worked.

Applications :: Itunes Password Not Working
So earlier today i was able to download apps via my iphone off of the app store by verifying my password and everything was completely fine. Then later on, i tried to download another app and was told my password was invalid...tried 3 more times and was still not working. So i figured it might be my phone and i tried my password on my computer and it was still invalid. I immediately checked my bank account and nothing was charged. So i did the whole "iForgot" thing and sent an email to myself to change the password, but i never received anything. So i did the second option which was to verify my birthday, but when i did, it said my information was invalid. I was hoping you guys could give me some advice on what i should do or if this has happened to anyone else.

ITunes Mac :: Library Folder Size Shown Incorrect
When I get the info on my iTunes folder it says the folder size is 35.35 Gig, but when I add up the content in the iTunes player:-

Music 23.75 G
Movies 1.14 G
TV 2.27 G
Podcast 1.50 G
Total 28.65 G

So the variance is 6.7 G I know this will be partly due to the actual iTunes app. itself but is it really this size of do I have something duplicated that is not showing when I select show duplicates/exact duplicates ?

ITunes Mac :: Account ID Or Password Not Working - How To Access Account
I'm still waiting to hear back from Apple, but thought I'd give it a shot here. For some reason, switching e-mail address (thus Apple iTunes IDs) is not a very intuitive process, and somehow I've ended up with two iTunes accounts--one connected with a no longer accessible e-mail address. Apple tells me there's no way I can combine accounts and I'll just have to live with it. No problem. But now I can't access my original account (and the password hint: birthday says it doesn't exist). To make matters worse, some of my music-- a lot--has been downloaded with that account and several apps on my iPhone want the information for updating.

I enabled screen sharing on the iMac, and set a password for VNC. Then I tried two different clients on the iBook - Chicken of the VNC, and JollysFastVNC. Both exhibit the same symptoms: they claim the password for vnc access is incorrect, but I KNOW the password is correct, and I have tried several different ones.

Mac :: ITunes 10 - Incorrect Ipod Iphone Free Space Calculation?
iTunes 10 appears to be calculating free space incorrectly on devices. This can range from 'not enough space to sync' type of messages for music, movies, and photos - even when there is plenty of space available. (like when trying to sync a 50k photograph, with 1.7 GB free).Near as I can tell, this is caused by using the 'compress to 128-bit' option for your music. It appears that iTunes is using an incorrect estimate, or is using the full file size, to estimate what will be on the ipod, rather than looking at the ipod to see what it really reports.

ITunes Mac :: Library Copied To Ext Drive - Folder Structure Incorrect
I recently copied my entire itunes folder to an external drive. The folder structure is incorrect and it is a complete mess of broken links which leads me to believe the original has the incorrect structure as well. All the music files are there however. I am wondering if there is a way to pull all the files out of itunes and somehow launch a new clean version so that when I put the music back it will structure it correctly and have the correct links? There are 1000 albums. All uncompressed.

OS X :: Time Machine Reports Incorrect Volume / Unable To Repair Incorrect Allocation Blocks
I am pulling my hair since friday trying to get my MBP's time machine work with a 1TB drive connected to a early 2009 AEBS. First I spent half a day doing the first backup by connecting the hard drive directly to Mac using USB and later when I connected that drive to AEBS, time machine would not recognize the drive as the same one and I had to spend a good part of yesterday backing up my complete drive again.... and just when I thought I can rest easy knowing that my eternal dream of getting time machine work wirelessly, I saw time machine complain that there is not enough free space left to backup my paltry 103 GB worth of data on just second day.

Turns out, the Time machine backup volume (volume created by time machine on the AEBS disk) shows that the used space is 1TB.... but the size of the sparsebundle is only 103GB and my airport drive mount itself shows plenty of free space (800GB).... I have tried to search for similar problem, but I couldn't find much help... can anyone help me out here....

Btw, when I tried to repair the volume in disk utility, it says something about incorrect allocation blocks and then says it cannot repair and I need to backup and reformat the drive or something of that sort....
