My iTunes has been pretty much screwed these days with the notification message:

One Moment Please.

Connecting to the iTunes Store.

Loading

If iTunes doesn’t open, click the iTunes application icon in your Dock or Windows Task Bar.

So iTunes does not itself know it is in iTunes. Very philosophical.

I tried logging out of my iTunes account and cannot log in back. I can log in using iTunes for Windows on my Windows machine but not iTunes for Mac. I have also reset everything in Safari.

Signing in to iTunes give me the following:

[iTunes We could not complete your iTunes Store request. An unknown error occured (-50).]

I can’t use iTunes Store any more and Apple Support doesn’t seem to have a similar problem listed.

[UPDATE: I resolved the issue.]

Resolution

Okay actually, I sort of solved it accidentally a few minutes after I write this. I just randomly delete some files that says iTunes such as the cache and I chanced upon the right file to delete.

There appears to have been some problems with iTunes preferences. I don’t exactly know which particular setting is incorrect; I don’t recall editing my preferences in the past couple of months.

Anyway, I deleted the preferences file. Mine is found in:

[code lang=“bash”]/Users/kahwee/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunes.plist[/code]

This causes iTunes to launch the set up wizard for iTunes where you have to click through all over again, as if it is a new installation. But that’s fine for me, I hardly customized my iTunes anyway.

And the iTunes Store is working again. Damn.
