    Windows, OS X? Is your iTunes updated yet? Does the download just fail or not start at all?

    Mac OS X 10.6

    iTunes 9

    It starts...gets to various mb points (25, 120, 220 mb, etc) and then it just fails.

    Reinstall iTunes. Or use a different internet network.

    Delete iTunes, reinstall and try again. That's all I got.

    Go into iTunes and when you click restore, hold the alt/option key and the choose that file.

    Is there a problem with the Software Update? Keeps on giving me a message saying Timed Out (-1001). My internet is fine, but keep on getting the above.

    Or is it 20 million people all trying to download at the same time?

    iTunes downloaded the iPhone 3.1 update, fine.

    Anybody else seen this?:(

    Great. connectd my iPhone, it asked to be updated to 3.1, then, after starting process tried to verify with Apple, and left it in recovery mode. tried that, then th esame thing happened. Now it is dead. 5 days old!


    Downloading iTunes 9 from the http download to see if THAT will fix it.:(:(:(
