ERROR ITMS-9000: "Unable to parse apple display options file: com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml" at Book (MZItmspBookPackage)

Hi, I'm En32, now trying to publish my first iBooks (epub).
The package I created is always rejected to deliver with following error.
Does anyone who can provide me a solution ?
=== error ===
Package Summary:
1 package(s) were not uploaded because they had problems:

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<display_options>
<platform name=”*”>
<option name=”fixed-layout”>true</option>
</platform>
</display_options>
===
Actually, I'd like to use fixed layout so I use com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml.
This ePub file looks good because I can open it with my iPad - iBooks, however iTunes publisher always rejects this.
Any solutions ?

I was getting that error when I used OSX's default compress feature. I found a little utility called ePub Zip and used it to compress (zip) my ePubs and that did the trick. They then passed the validation. I got it here:

    Uloading ebook using iProducer rec'd error: ERROR ITMS-9000: "Unable to parse nav file: toc.ncx" at Book. I don't understand and need help fixing it. Please Help if you've the knowledge.
    Many Thanks

    Yep, i just did it again. The entire scroll-bar widget, complete with formatted text, graphics, etc., pasted itself nicely in another book. Two different files, the same widget.
    I use the scroll-bar widgets for most of my texts. (I have audio buttons on the side, and the scripts are within the widget, to the side). My only text is within widgets, and text boxes, naturally. 
    I am following your recommendation: cleaning files, etc. I am remaking the book anew. I need to convince the EPUB bot or whatever that my file looks and works nicely on all my devices. You would expect an error message when previewing the book: 'Hey Amigo, your file is flawed, stop working on it, and get back to the drawing board." Should be able to try again next Monday.

  • Apple TRANSPORTER Fehler: • ERROR ITMS-9000: Unable to analyse

    Hi!
    Please help me!
    I have made an ePub from aword file with ePub maker then modified with Sigli (made every chapter to begin in a new page).
    Then I have sent the file to someone who returned this error message:
    Apple TRANSPORTER Error:
    • ERROR ITMS-9000: Unable to analyse: Praxis_Know_how_Personalmanagement_DEF_1.htm
    Could You please help me, what sould be the problem?
    Thank You!

    Well I had this error message and in my case the reason was the way the .xhtml file was saved. Ie the file, for some curious reason was saved as UTF-16 instead of UTF-8. To see your encoding open the file that has the problem with chrome browser and go to "tools" and then "encoding". If you see that the encoding is not UTF-8 then open your file with "notepad" and then go to "save as" and then save it as text with "UTF-8" encoding. I hope this works. It worked in my case.

  • Error itms-9000 "could not parse OPS/glossary.xhtml"

    Has anyone received this error message when trying to deliver an ibook through iTunes Producer?
    ERROR ITMS-9000 "could not parse OPS/glossary.xhtml: duplicate id: p2" at Book (MZItmspBookPackage)"
    I can't translate that, the ibookstore people are VERY (5 days) slow in responding, and my book can't go through until I've "fixed" the problem.  Glossary links are intact, intro movie is in a separate place (not glossary), and I'm at a loss!!

    Edgar,
    My solution came as a suggestion from my computer guru son.  Delete every item in the glossary.  Since that wasn't practical, I copied each item completely and pasted it to Notepad.  THEN deleted each item.  In re-inputting the items (copied from Notepad), I used the iBooks "glossary creator" to create each item.  Apparently, as I was "creating my own" glossary items, iBooks was creating each item in the background, so duplicates were being created.  Once I input the glossary items ONLY through the iBooks "glossary creator" system, there were no duplicates and the submission process went through instantly (took a while, because of the size of the book).  About your videos in the glossary, try abridging the video (if it was a duplicate of something used somewhere else in the book) and renaming it a different name, THEN include it in the glossary.  It may be thinking that the video is duplicated in the glossary because it's being used elsewhere.  If the two (or three) videos all have different names, I think they would pass.
    Another thing that caused problems in the book was in dealing with .pdf files.  DON'T USE .PDFs.  Re-type the verbiage.  Including .pdfs created its own set of problems!
    Good Luck!!

  • Error ITMS-9000:"Unable to analyse: page1.xhtml" - Probably caused by Greek characters

    I get an "Error ITMS-9000:"Unable to analyse: page1.xhtml" when I try to upload my epub using the itunes producer. I know this is caused because the text within page1.xhtml is in Greek but I do not know how to solve it. I already added "<dc:language>el</dc:language>" at the .opf file and also "<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html" charset="UTF-8">" at head section of "page1.xhtml" but it still does not work. Any ideas anyone?

    Well I found myself the reason of the error and corrected. The reason of this error message was the way the .xhtml file was saved. Ie the file, for some curious reason was saved as UTF-16 instead of UTF-8. To see your encoding open the file that has the problem with chrome browser and go to "tools" and then "encoding". If you see that the encoding is not UTF-8 then open your file with "notepad" and then go to "save as" and then save it as text with "UTF-8" encoding. This solved my problem.

  • ERROR ITMS-9000: Missing Code Signing Entitlements when adding app to Apple App Store

    My client is getting the following error when sending my app (compiled in Flash Pro CC 2014 with AIR SDK 15.0.0.356) to the Apple app store:
    ERROR ITMS-9000: "Missing Code Signing Entitlements. No entitlements found in bundle
    'com.xxxxxx.xx.xxx' for excutable 'payload/xxxxx.app./xxxx'.""
    He is saying that I need to send them the entitlements file.
    I can't find out any information about this with regards to Adobe Air compiled iOS apps, apart from this old post:
    Adding iOS entitlements to AIR apps
    which states that 'the packager configures the entitlements file '
    Can anyone explain what might be missing here?
    Thanks,
    Alan.

    It looks as if this problem is solved by doing step 2 from here:
    http://dev.mlsdigital.net/posts/how-to-resign-an-ios-app-from-external-developers/
    It basically states that the client needs to produce the entitlements file and lists the following that the client will provide themselves:
    A “Mobile Provisioning Profile”
    An “Entitlements.plist”
    An “iOS Distribution Certificate”
    iReSign OS X app (or you could use command line)
    Hope this helps someone. We've run into quite a few problems trying to get the Flash Air compiled App to both enterprise and Apple Store as it can't come from us (the developers) it has to be signed and delivered from the client.

  • Error ITMS-9000 Index:0, Size: 0

    Hi,
    I've spent 30 days for this "Error ITMS-9000 Index:0, Size: 0".
    I made a validation test before I delivered my book package.
    No problem, it's OK.
    I think since last update in OS X(March, 2013) this problem started.
    Today, after Java and Safari update, the same error.
    Whan can I do?
    1 package(s) were not uploaded because they had problems:
    /Users/carllro/Music/iTunes Producer/Playlists/9788999002519.itmsp - Error Messages:

    ERROR ITMS-9000: "Index: 0, Size: 0" at Book (MZItmspBookPackage)

    After re-initializing, the porblem is solved.
    I Would like to share our findings:
    The monitoring application includes an embedded Apache Derby database, often referred to as the “trending database”, where monitoring information is stored by default.
    Somehow this Apache Derby database database got corrupt: as a reference we checked our TEST environment and every time we restarted SAPBO, there was a file in the derby database named, dbex.lck and db.lck which was refreshed. We assume these ae lock files which is created at startup. But on the development environment, these files weren't refreshed at startup, they were too old.  before re-initializing CMS, we stopped the node, deleted the dbex.lck and db.lck.files, started CMS but there were no dbex.lck and db.lck.files. So, we assumed the Derby database got corrupt.
    After re-initializing, the porblem is solved.
    Thank you all
    Cheers

    I understand that there's something wrong with the TOC file (.ncx), but I have tried everything and nothing seems to work. Every section of the TOC is labeled, so not sure why the navLabel issue is happenening.
    Any help is GREATLY appreciated! Thank you.

    Similar issues looks like. Are you using a template other than those in iBooks Author? That's what I did, and that was definitely part of the issue.
    After digging through .ibooks code for hours and still not seeing the problem, I decided to reach out to one of the Apple epub conversion affiliates in iTunes Connect. They said they could repair the file without a problem, started working on it, only to come back a week later and say they couldn't work on .ibooks or .iba files yet.
    So, in complete frustration, I decided to transfer my content page by page from the blank template I downloaded from a vendor online to one of the "textbook" templates in IBA. This was a long process as I had to unlock and clear out the formatting of the template. But, once that was done and content was transferred over, all was good. I submitted/delivered the same content and preview book within the new template and it went right through the first time (all metadata was exactly the same as well).
    Now, the iBookstore approval waiting process begins!
    Good luck!

  • ERROR ITMS-9000 "The bundle uses a bundle name or display name..." when uploading to iTunesConnect

    I'm receiving the error "ERROR ITMS-9000 "The bundle uses a bundle name or display name associated with an Apple app." when uploading to iTunesConnect.
    Version 1.0 or our app is currently on the App store, an I'm trying to upload a version 1.1.
    I'm trying to change the name of the app from "Augsburg Now" to "Augsburg Gallery".
    I changed the name in the App ID on developer.apple.com to "Augsburg Gallery, but left the ID as edu.augsburg.augsburgnow
    I generated new Development and Distribution provisioning profiles, since the App ID name had changed.
    In DPS App Builder, I changed the App name to "Gallery", and the Title (library view) in DPS App Builder to "Augsburg Gallery", and then created a new binary.
    I changed the App Name in iTunes connect to "Augsburg Gallery"
    I don't see the problem, since I left the bundle id, app id, etc. all unchanged.
    Any ideas?

    It sounds like you did everything right, Keith. I just did a similar thing recently to change my app name from "Digital Publishing Suite Tips" to "DPS Tips," so I know it's possible. In iTunes Connect, you submitted the app as a new version, not as a new app, right?
    I would try building a new app and submitting it again.

    iBookstore Publisher Support send me a fast response email which included some helpful info:
    Please make sure that all image files inside the ePub end with one of the following: ".tif", ".jpg", or ".png" and that the file itself matches the file extension type. To check if the image file matches the file extension type, please right click on the image then select "Get Info". Once the info tab appears, please make sure that the file extension type of the image file matches the "Kind" found under "General".
    For further information regarding embedded images, please refer to the iBookstore Asset Guide, which is available for download in the Deliver Your Content module in iTunes Connect.
    And they INCLUDED THE TRANSPORTER LOG (!), the log generated by iTunes Producer as it tries to upload a book. We were able to search for the Validation Error # within the log and find out which image Producer was trying to upload when it encountered an error. Turns out the problem was a corrupted screenshot jpeg.
    Grateful!
