    Does anyone know what this error message means or how to fix it? It happens when I click something in the itunes music store. This error message pops up. I'm using windows xp with the latest itunes release. If I click it again it usually works.

    It's a pretty general error, but try the DNS flush mentioned here. :)

    I tried that, but it hasn't helped. Any other suggestions?

    Okay, well Apple have a page relating to this error when downloading videos, so it doesn't directly help you but the solution might be worth a try all the same.

    Alternatively, are you using Winamp at all? Do you have any apps to speed up your downloads?

    The problem is that error -50 is so common and can mean so many different hings. Sorry for making you jump through these hoops, but I dunno a surefire way to fix it. :eek:
