iTunes 7.2 may persistently ask the user to enter iTunes store login information in order to check for iTunes Plus updates every time the application is launched, despite all eligible tracks being updated.
MacFixIt reader Steve Solomon writes:
"I updated multiple songs today on iTunes Plus. I received multiple server error messages during the multiple attempts today. One time I quit iTunes during one of my futile update attempts and iTunes told me that it would check for my updates next time I ran it. All of my updates have finally been done but iTunes asks me for my password to check for updates every time I run it. Is there a way to make the madness stop?"
We've identified two potential fixes for this issue, both of which may need to be applied:
- Delete .plist(s) Quit iTunes, then navigate to the following directory: ~/Library/iTunes/iTunes Music/Downloads and delete any files with the extension .plist. Launch iTunes and check for persistence of the issue.
- Delete partial downloads Again navigate to ~/Library/iTunes/iTunes Music/Downloads and delete any partially downloaded files.
- Cannot install
- Controlling iTunes Plus
- Embedded personal data, removal
- Errors when connecting to/purchasing from store; busy
- iTunes will not launch
- Persistent "checking for updates" -- fixes
- Problems transferring to iPod, fix
