    I recently was having some problems with iTunes, (it was resetting and erasing the library every time i started it) so i decided to just save my mp3 files to my external hard drive and delete iTunes. My plan was to simply download iTunes again and put all my files back onto it.

    However, when i downloaded iTunes, the disk image that apple gives you to set it up failed to mount. The reason, apparently, was because it was "Not Recognized"

    I had no idea that an apple computer would not recognize one of the most common apple applications, but there you have it.

    If anyone could shed some light on this matter, please do~

    Thanks,

    Try re-downloading. "Not recognized" usually means the file has become corrupted in transfer.

    i have re- downloaded the disk image three times now, but when i try to mount it now, the reason changes, it is either "invalid checksum" or "not recognized"

    how would i prevent it from becoming "corrupted in transfer" ?

    Fixed!!

    i just had to mount it on another user!

    it was strange, like the user wouldnt mount things, but a clean, new one would.
