    I'm not sure what's going on but suddenly I'm having trouble downloading from iTunes...I can only listen to about 10 seconds of a song sample and then when I tried to download a song tonight I got "Unknown error occured (-50)." Any ideas? Thanks.

    I recently discusses and asked about the same issues, if you wait till the morning and check for purchased music (in advanced menu of itunes) then you can download them fine.
    I think it is because the servers are too busy during peak times....

    There is a known problem where if you are listening to the track (preview) and then click the buy while it is still playing or just after it has finished it errors out. The best way around it is to listen to another track preview before buying the one you want.
