    Trane, that is one of the most succint responses yet, and the idea that one should deal with the "library.itl" files first.  That's probably, maybe, where I and others have gone wrong.

    Hi, David.

     

    Yeah, if you don't replace the ITL file, you'll run into an error where iTunes 10.7 complains about not being able to open the ITL file because it was created with a newer version. As is so often the case with Apple updates, backward compatibility is lost.

    I love you guys! There are many knowledgeable people on this discussion board that always seem to help solve any problem. I really appreciate everyone's help. Thank you everyone!

    I still can't get the reinstallation of iTunes 10.7 to work without the (-42408) error. In addition, the reinstalled 10.7 version no longer sees my old Apple TV.  I can't figure out any way to connect to ATV at all.

     

    This is the worst attempt at an application update I've ever dealt with on any platform.

    I just followed the advice of Joe Streno (http://www.emacconsulting.com/apple/itunes/downgrade-itunes-11-to-itunes-10-7/) and that resolved the (-42408) error and the inability to see my old Apple TV.

     

    The steps that were missing in earlier attempts were to click on the Not Authorized icon and select Use Administrator Privileges.

     

    Everything ran fine after that. Follow the link and enjoy!

    ANY time you install a program into the system Applications folder, you need to use administrator privileges; otherwise, files that need to be written will not be.

    I did replace the itl file and I still get the error -42308! iTunes 10.7  is running quite well with all my organized playlists on the computer again in spite of the error message. So what is it about?  Why does this error appear?What will happen when I connect my iPod? I dare not do so hence all the content of the iPod might be gone.

    How can I get rid of that error an easy way? I'm really mad at myself for having downloaded that so called update getting iTunes 11. Still hope that someone can give me a hint of how to cope with the error.

  • Trane Francks Level 2 Level 2

    That error has nothing to do with the ITL file, that is an authentication probelm with the iTunes Store, which says that you've still got iTunes 11 remnants on your system.

     

    Did you use Pacifist to install iTunes? If not, we can't be sure that iTunes is correctly installed. Mount the iTunes DMG file in Finder, open Pacifist and then drag the iTunes PKG file onto the Pacifist main window. That opens up new window. Click on the top-level part of the package and then click on Install in the window frame above.

     

    You'll be presented with a dialogue box that offers yout o run with admin privileges. You must make sure that checkbox is ticked; otherwise, you will not overwrite the required files on the OS. Remember: Installing into the system's Application's folder requires elevated privileges, and iTunes runs deep into the OS with various bits and pieces outside the Applications folder.

     

    For each dialogue box that opens regarding a particular file or type, be sure to check the don't ask again checkbox and then Yes. This will streamline the installation process, as we want to overwrite ALL files.

    Im massively disappointed in iTunes 11. Super unintuitive. The simple play button/field near the music title at the top is gone instead a bullet point list of stuff that is over cooked and honestly not wanted. I will see if it becomes more intuitive its a nebulous piece of work. Please, simple, clean, intuitive. What happened Apple??

  • magali mistral Level 1 Level 1

    Thank you very much. This helped and I got rid of the error message.

    I've had an iPhone/iTunes for several years and have never felt the need to post on Apple discussions. Unfortunately my first post is to echo a negative sentiment: the new iTunes is truly, genuinely, unquestionably, garbage. I have a strong suspicion that a bunch of "UX experts" did some number-crunching and insisted that irrefutable data led to this new "best iTunes ever."  I have an even stronger suspicion that such data won over common sense.

     

    NOTHING is consistent in this experience, it's disorienting and frustrating, and no, it's not me being resistant to change. This is change for... not even change's sake, it's change for someone at Apple to be able to check off a box on their review.
