Error -50 message

Hey folks, I'm having a similar problem - I upgraded to the latest version of itunes, and just purchased an album. I was able to download 2 songs of it, and then it gives me the -50 error - anyone else have a solution? I don't have mcafee, i don't have a firewall, and i had no trouble downloading with the previous version of itunes... gar, this is frustrating...

I discovered a few days after I posted that my Toshiba laptop came with a firewall running - not the one I had added and turned off when I first had this problem and found out that the 'advice' was to turn it off. Turning the 2nd firewall off did allow me - with no other changes - to access both the Music Store and the CDDB database to get album data.

You guys should run msconfig (Start -> Run -> msconfig) and check Startup and Services to make sure you know what's running.

Still no word from anyone at Apple. I find the advice 'deactivate your firewall from a PC if you want to use our products' hard to fathom. I wonder if it will take a significant drop in iTunes sales to get any action on their part. I can type in my CD info - and while I'd like to buy some music from their site, I have plenty (my mini is just about full) to entertain me. If I were an Apple shareholder I'd be speaking up at the next public meeting.

Apple is requesting specific information now about the (-50) aborted downloads... You can check it out on their discussion forums in the Support tab of their site.

Seems like a lot of people's issues may be related to some Internet Service Providers, particularly Cox Cable (which I have).

I'm getting that -50 error. I just fired off a email to the moderator. We'll see what happens.

Still getting it, though at a slightly lesser frequency. I've sent two separate e-mails to the Apple moderator and heard nothing back... Getting annoying.

I've down loaded 2 pay songs and 2 free songs from itues so far. Only 1 came through the first time. The other three require multiple attemts over the course of a couple hours, before I got them.

I've sent several email to apple mods and have never gotten a response.
