    Hi:

    So, I like this DRM-Less iTunes- maybe I will even start buying some now. The higher bit rate is almost acceptable now. So I d/led the new iTunes yesterday at work, and installed over an existing (and working!) 7.1.1 (I think!)

    So, now, I cannot get iTunes to connect to the Internet. Worked fine before. I d/l one podcast a day... now it will not connect. I try to get to the iTunes store- nada now. Just an "Unable to connect, check your network connection" error message.

    So- any ideas what I can try... or does anyone have an idea where I can get an older version to go back?

    Thanks!

    Dave

    iTunes could not connect to the iTunes Store (502) Error

    This is driving me crazy.:mad:

    I recently updated my Windoze Computer to the newest iTunes 7.2.035.

    After the update, I receive the following error when I click the iTunes Store:

    'iTunes could not connect to the iTunes Store. An unknown error occurred (502). Make sure your network connection is active and try again.'

    My network connection is 'active'.

    I tried the uninstall and reinstall routine, but received the same error.

    Anything I should check? :confused:

    I am running:

    Windows XP Professional V5.1.2600
    Service Pack 2
    Build 2600

    Thanks in advance...

    P.S. I am seriously thinking about switching over to the iMac after I hear the latest news from WWDC.

    Maybe then simple upgrades will simply work.

    Firewall Lock

    My guess is that it is a Firewall Block.

    I had iTunes on my Windoze machine at work and when I did the upgrade to the 'latest and greatest' I too received the dreaded '502 Error'...

    I found out later from one of my co-workers that iTunes was put on the block list of programs able to run in Windoze XP.

    I guess that means no more music at work for me...

    Just my two cents.
