I have tried everything I can find online.

  • Update iTunes to the latest version.
  • If iTunes Store appears empty and only displays the message iTunes Store, follow these steps.
  • Try the steps to troubleshoot iTunes Store connectivity in Windows.
  • As with all firewalls not manufactured by Apple, you may need to configure Windows Firewall to allow iTunes to access the iTunes Store. Follow these steps for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.
  • Try disabling any proxies built-in to Wndows. You should avoid proxies because they can cause issues.
  • If you're receiving a specific error message, follow these steps.
  • If the issue still persists, contact your Internet service provider and confirm that these ports and servers are enabled over your network.

    I also have tried flushing dns,making sure all services that are required are started (not 100% which it needs to be fair, I did have an issue earlier this month when i upgraded my ram from 2gb to 4gb and had to go into msconfig to untick the max memory setting so it used all 4 instead of the original 2gb... and that for some reason turned off a few services, bonjour service is 100% working, i checked that much, and the ipod service too) I also tried a system restore with no effect.

    I also did the microsoft fixit for the hosts file too...

    I have just purchased an ipad mini, brand new not second hand... and I want to be able to sync it, but without authorising the pc it wont let me. ANY help is appretiated. Thankyou.
Ipad mini, Itunes, iOS 7.0.3
