One of the following messages may appear in iTunes:
"iTunes could not connect to the Store. An unknown error occurred (-3259). Make sure your network connection is active and try again."
"There was an error downloading your music (-3259)"
When trying to download purchased music, getting error -3259 message in iTunes
When trying to connect to the iTunes Store, getting error -3259 message
This may occur if you are using an older version of iTunes, having a network connection issue, or when a Firewall protection system on the computer is blocking some communication ports that iTunes need to have open for full functionality.
iTunes Store, Mac OS, iTunes, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows OS
Update to the latest iTunes software version.
Try turning off your Firewall to see if the issue is resolved (this includes the built-in Firewall or a third-party Firewall such as Norton Personal Firewall, McAfee, Symantec, etc.). See KB #HT1601 for steps if using Windows. See KB #TS1997 for steps if using Mac OS X.
