ITunes :: Why Can't I Log Into Account, Unknown Error Occurred (-54)
Apr 10, 2012
Recently I had my Macbook pro reformatted back to factory conditions. After downloading all the software updates I tried to log into the iTunes store, but everytime I get the message " We could not complete your iTunes Store request. An Unknown error occurred (-54)"
I am able to connect to the iTunes store itself and look around and preview songs. but I can't log in to my account. I have the latest version of iTunes, and I haven't altered any settings in iTunes, so I'm confused as to why I am receiving this error message.
The other discussions and trouble shooting pages referencing the error (-54) seem to all talk about ipod sync issues or not being able to access the store in general.
MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
A movie I purchased stops downloading almost immediately and the error message above comes up. The rest of iTunes works properly and my internet connection is fine. I was downloading numerous TV episodes before and during while this movie was in the cue without any issues. I've restarted my network and that did not seem to fix it.
I've deleted the movie from the cue and re-downloaded it but still same issue.
I'm trying to download a movie and this message keeps showing up (unknow error occurred (-50)) check your internet connection and try downloading again. I have an internet connection but every time I try to download the same message keeps showing up.
We've been trying to download the latest digital copy of Mission Impossible from iTunes and have had no luck. It stops downloading and gives an error message (unknown error occurred (-50)) and have received (err - 8008). We've checked for software updates, rebooted the system and tried again, but nothing.
I've been unable to download or update any applications or songs on any of my phones, ipads, or imacs. I just keep getting the messages, "Unable to download application." It's been this way for weeks. What can I do?
Friday, when I tried to enter my computer I have received a log screen. Tried to log but I have received this message "you are unable to log in to the user account "user" at this time because an error occurred" (never happened before). I am sure that the password is correct because the screen doesn't shake, like it happens when I introduce a wrong password. Tried to reboot with "apple S" pressed to go to the root. When I access the directory "Users" I cannot see my user name anymore. Filevault is not activated, never did it. I have very important data from work (my whole year work), I don't have backup and I must not loose it. I was not trying to do an updade or anything, it just happen when I turn on the Mac.
I have tried to do the following things too: Boot from installation disk #1: Accessed Disk Utility and repaired the disk. There was one error "Mounting of the drive" that was fixed. No other errors found. When I rebooted I got the same message at the login screen. Tried to change the password. I got an error telling me that I don't have permission or an error has occurred. The volume Macintosh HD appears to be ok. Rebooted and still had the same problem.
I just had Apple replace the hard drive on my iMac due to a hard drive failure. I restored my data from my WD back-up drive and that seemed to go fine, but when I try to log onto my computer for the first time since the drive change, I get this error message: "you can't log into the FileVault user account 'my account name' at this time. Logging into the account failed because an error occurred." This comes at the screen where you enter your password for password protected login. Note that I've always used the password protected login and I have not forgetten my password. I shut down and restarted a couple of more times, but I keep on getting the same message.
I've never had an issue with renting from iTunes before, but I'm getting the following message tonight: "An unknown error occurred (- 50)." I'm not seeing any support links or "report problems" from within iTunes. (I know I'm connected because I just updated a ton of apps.)
I've been using ITunes radio flawlessly for years, when suddenly this a.m. I got the error message: An error occurred while contacting the radio tuning service. Check your Internet connection, or try again later. The rest of ITunes like the store and such seem to be working fine as is my internet connection. Nothing on my system has changed. ITunes was last updated in January 2012.I'm on Mac book with OS X 10.6.8.
