I upgraded my first-gen iPhone to software v2.0, and installed the Remote app. It connects to iTunes on my Mac and it works fine, for a while.

Then an hour or so later, when I launch the Remote app again, it gives me the "Could not find library" error.

The only way to fix this is to close & restart iTunes on my Mac.

Rebooting the iPhone doesn't help. I've got the firewall disabled on my Mac. And the Mac is set to never go to sleep.

The computer is a Mac mini running OS X 10.4.11, with the latest version of iTunes (currently 7.7.1).

Any ideas?

    I wish I could help, but I have a similar problem.

    My remote is set to keep the connection alive but that didn't work.

    The first time I used the remote it worked fine, upon closing the app it disconnected and couldn't reconnect.

    Now it can't connect at all- I enter the code into itunes, it tries to verify, gives me an error noise, and nothing happens.

    Firewall is off, iTunes is set to look for devices and accept traffic, I'm on the same network, etc etc.

    For reference there is a version of Apache already installed on your Mac. I don't know off the top of my head which Apache modules are installed or enabled. Turning on Web Sharing will enable it.

    Hope this helps,

    I'm running Vista with itunes 7.7+, ipod touch 2.1.

    I had this problem. The solution was to give bonjour internet access in windows fire wall. bonjour is an apple app.

    I have tried everything to get ipod NOT to reconnect (replicate the issue) but it connects EVERY time now. Even if I shut ipod completely off. No problems.

    I hope this helps some of you out!

    Cheers from Canada!
