I was getting the same thing with the logon working on my computer but not online. So I told it I forgot my password, and then I changed it. That seemed to fix the problem.

Fixed

Ok Here Is How You Fix It...

If You Sign Up For A Trial Account, Apple Automatically Makes Your @me.com Account Your Itunes Account...

So Your Me.com And Itunes Account Now Have The Same Password, Which Is Not Allowed Apparently...

You Must Hit Forgot Password...enter Your @me.com Mail Address As Your Itunes Account...and Then Just Answer The Question To Make A New Password And Make A New Password That Is Different Than The "itunes" Account

Hey thanks - that was the solution. I was using the same password as my iTunes account, and that was the cause of my not being able to log in to me.com. Changed it, and now everything works. Thank you!
