Has anyone been able to upload an ibooks file with audio only files (m4a) in it? I keep getting the following error message during the upload in iTunes Producer: ERROR ITMS-9000: "Files of type audio/x-m4a are not allowed outside of widgets. then it names the file as an m4p file. Everything works beautifully on the iPad through Preview, and validates through iTunes Producer up until the attempted upload. If you've been able to accomplish this, please let me know how you prepared your audio files. Many thanks.

Hello Fellow iBook Authors!
Today I received the same error that you all have been discussing.  I tried selecting the DRM
and this did not work for me, though I'm glad it did for some.  Here's what I did as a work-around. . .
Since iBooks Author did not have a problem with Videos, I simply used one of my video programs, ScreenFlow to turn the audio into a video file m4v.  I added an image and extended the length or timing of the image to span the length of the audio file.  Then exported as an .mov.  I then opened QuickTime and opened the file and exported the file to iTunes. 
You can use iMovie, Camtasia or any other progam that will allow you to export the audio as a movie file.  Does this make sense?  I hope this helps, at least in the short-term.

  • I successfully uploaded a book using iBook Author.  I need to make a correction. I keep getting this error message: ERROR ITMS-9000: "Files of type audio/x-m4a are not allowed outside of widgets: assets/media/chick02.m4p" at Book (MZItmspBookPackage)

    I appreciate any help or assistance.  I have been trying to update one of my books for for the past few days with no success.  I really just need to change two letters. But since I was updating I thought I would make a couple more improvements.  I clicked disable portrait and made my pictures a little bigger to fit the whole page.  But now I keep getting this error for multiple sound effects throughout the book. ERROR ITMS-9000: "Files of type audio/x-m4a are not allowed outside of widgets: assets/media/chick02.m4p" at Book (MZItmspBookPackage).  I did not change the audio.  The audio files are placed in widgets.  I had no problem the first time it uploaded. I have recreated my whole book from scratch and it still does not work. Does anyone have a suggestion? Thank you for your attention to my question.

    Could it matter that I am dragging my audio files onto my document?  They appear to be in a widget once dragged in. I use the widget insector to make changes. However,  I did not go to the top of the screen and click widget and then insert my audio file.
    I don't believe that would make any difference. Drag-and-drop is just a UI shortcut for using the menu items.
    Also some of the audio file were used in previous books.  Would that cause an error?
    No. Each book is a stand-alone entity. It doesn't matter if the same audio file appears in another book.
    From what people have reported here, it looks like there is a bug in the submission system. Other than trying the suggestions posted in the linked-to thread, I don't think there is anything you can do to fix it.
    I would submit a bug report to Apple though. Quite a lot of people seem to be affected by this problem, and if they hear about the same problem from lots of different sources, that will (presumably) elevate the importance of fixing it.

  • Has anyone been able to sync new i-phone with a 2004 Volvo XC 90? Old phone worked perfectly. This one does not pair even though new software update says it is now discoverable.

    Has anyone been able to sync new i-phone with a 2004 Volvo XC 90 with dealer installed bluetooth. New software download says it is now discoverable but pairing failed.

    Is "NILESH" the name of your computer or perhaps the name of your iPhone? What are you trying to achieve by connecting your iPhone to your PC via Bluetooth?
    Only certain Bluetooth profiles are supported by the iPhone, the list of supported profiles is listed here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3647
    If you are attempting to use another profile then an unsupported message is to be expected.

  • Has anyone been able to link all their contacts with their Facebook info?

    I just got my first iPhone and am seeing an issue: not all Facebook contacts are being synced; specifically, only 27 out of 254. I’ve been reading posts about this here, and it appears a good number of people are seeing this same problem, including a friend of mine with a 5S running iOS 7.  It appears people are under the impression this is due to a change Facebook made, and that only contacts with specific info showing on their profiles will now be synced. I’ve done some testing, and it does at least appear that only Facebook contacts showing an email address on their timeline - other than their @facebook.com address – are synced to my iPhone. Thing is, Facebook contact sync works effortlessly and perfectly for all contacts both on my Windows Phone and on another friend’s old Android phone. It therefore appears this is either an Apple or an Apple combined with Facebook issue, and not a general issue with access to Facebook contact info. I’m primarily interested in fixing this so that each of my contacts show their Facebook profile photo (which also worked effortlessly and perfectly on my Windows Phone).
    I’ve tried various potential solutions like adding Facebook emails to contacts, but nothing has worked so far. Has anyone been able to get this to work? If not, and this is a universal problem with iOS 7+ and Facebook, I’m surprised more people aren’t up in arms and reporting it to Apple and Facebook as something they’d like to see fixed?

    I had no issues activating my iPhone 4s. I just hooked it up to my computer and it did the rest. It was pretty easy and this was my first iPhone, I had the Motorola Droid 1 before that.
    Although I was experiencing problems with calls going straight to Voicemail, even though I wasn't on the internet or doing anything on the phone, so I just got off the phone with Verizon and they had me punch in numbers to reprogram the phone and that seems to have done the trick (i hope).
    I don't know if the above issue happened during the initial activation or if it was just a separate fluke, but there you go. You shouldn't experience any difficulties in setting up the phones.

    I should add that I got my phone in NOV and so I'm not sure if something changed in the activation process that made it faulty. I'm just reading the thread about people having issues activating the phone over the holidays.

  • Has anyone been able to release-build their app with TLF 2.0?

    I can build a debug build of my app just fine.  TLF 2.0 features are working.  However, when I try to export a release build I get:
        No signed digest found in catalog.xml of the library, /Applications/Adobe Flash Builder 4/sdks/4.1.0_tlf2.0/frameworks/libs/framework.swc. Compile the library with -create-digest=true and try again.

    To get TLF 2.0 working I followed the steps on the blog plus I had to change the linkage for textLayout.swc to merged to code.
    I tried to modify the build.xml script in the frameworks directory to call compute-digest="true", but it didn't seem to make any difference.
    Has anyone gotten this to work?

    I'm using ant.  It looks like the command you gave me is for building the textLayout.swc.  I already have the textLayout.swc from the sourceforge download.  I'm looking for a way to integrate it into the 4.1.0 (or 4.0.0) sdk.  I followed the instructions on the TLF blog post, including running the ant command to rebuild spark.swc.  However, when I try to do a release build of my project using that modified sdk I get the error message in the first post.

  • RROR ITMS-9000: "Files of type audio/x-m4a are not allowed outside of widgets

    Hello,
    I have seen that here are discussions about the error, but I could not find a satisfying solution.
    I put ONE audiofile in a media widget and now I am stuck for hours trying again and again to deliver the ibook first time.
    Even after deleteing the page and the audiofile still Producer complains about it. that is really weird.
    I unchecked all the drm boxes, sitll the same.
    I really like to avoid building up the entire book of 124 pages only for a workaround.

    I had the same problem. Someone at apple support sent me the following instructions and it worked to successfully deliver the package that kept getting the same error. By sample book they mean your complete book. Here are the instructions :
    1.  Open the sample book .iba file in iBooks Author
    2.  Click "publish" from the toolbar
    3.  Save the file and click Publish.  The program will export and save the book as a .itmsp package in the location you selected.
    4.  iTunes Producer should automatically open once you have clicked Publish -- please close iTunes Producer
    5.  Find the .itmsp package in the location you selected
    6.  Control+click the .itmsp file in a finder window and select "Show Package Contents"
    7.  You should see the .ibooks file in the package -- this is the preview file that will need to be uploaded via iTunes Producer.  You can drag the .ibooks file to your desktop or save it to any location of your choosing
    8.  Open iTunes Producer and click "Open Package"
    9.  Find and open the appropriate package
    10.  Under the Assets tab, choose the sample .ibooks file under the "Upload Publication Preview" section
    11.  Make sure all the metadata is filled out correctly and click file > save and deliver

  • Has anyone been able to set up email for other services? I would like to link to a GoDaddy account. Have all the information but can't get it to work.

    I have entered the information from GoDaddy under manual setup and the mail app tells me it cannot connect to the server. It does connect to a gmail account, but that is not helpful. I was wondering if anyone has tried linking to GoDaddy or other account manually and what additional steps it takes.

    Actually, I was able to connect to an IMAP account from (German mail provider) posteo.de without problems. Not so with FastMail.fm, which is a much bigger service provider than posteo.de, and also pretty much IMAP standard compliant.
    Are there different IMAP configurations (all folders on the same level vs. all folders as subfolders of INBOX) that can influence this? And what can be done to connect FastMail to Firefox OS?

    If you follow this thread http://forums.adobe.com/message/3129598#3129598  , you'll see the dramas we're having. Through a bit of tinkering, we can get the file read, but it brings up an "invalid certificate" message.
    Adobe, is this something you guys are testing at the moment?
    Thanks , Oliver

    Matthew, thanks for your help. You hit the nail on the head.
    Going through the whole certificate process again was required. That is, revoking the old certificates, generating a new CSR file, submitting it and then creating a new .p12 file.
    Did this all through Windows using iBrent's tutorials. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GteMgFvA1Y&feature=related quite helpful.
    It's a battle no doubt but all uploaded finally. Thanks again. Oliver

  • Has anyone been able to get a repair/proper fix from Apple for their LCD?

    The more I use my Macbook Pro while traveling the more i notice the 'sparkly/grainy' display. Compared to the White/Black Macbook it is obviously noticable what i'm talking about - especially on white backgrounds. My question is - has anyone been able to get a proper repair/fix for this common problem for the Core 2 Duo 15" Macbook Pro's?
    I normally have my Macbook Pro connected to an external display but when i do take it along when I travel it stands out more and more every time.
    Is Apple going to issue a 'recall/repair' for their customers who bought their Macbook Pro's? What am I to do here, When i need to use my laptop when I travel I can't take the annoyance of using this LCD screen.
    C2D 2.16 2GB   Mac OS X (10.4.8)  

    Yes, I can CLEARLY see it, it's like wearing glasses that are filthy. The laptop is one week old and I could see it from after the 802.11n upgrade. This is not all that zoomed, really. To me it looks like a video memory problem, not a LCD problem. The problem is the same if I connect an external DELL monitor. Also very visible there. Also very visible if I change resolutions or number of colours. The main reason I believe it's a video memory thing is that when I move a window, it changes from white to, well... yellow and red. Check out: http://niklas.saers.com/MBP/MG8665.jpg That is why I am unsure if this is the kind of grain you are talking about. Can you confirm that this is the kind of problem you guys are seeing?
    PS, I use a Canon 20D with a 100mm f/2.8 macro lens.

  • Has anyone been able to internet share when the internet source is a verizon USB modem?

    I'm on a macbook 3,1 running OSX 10.6.8
    internet is coming from a verizon USB modem/dongle model UMW190.
    I have gone through the steps for internet sharing - created a network, etc.
    My other devices (a roku box and an ipad) are able to see the wifi network i created.  prompts for a password, and i'm able to connect with great signal strength, but no internet!
    Tried every problem solving suggestion i could find on the messageboards.
    No firewill.  Changed the IP address. restarted, etc etc.
    nothing can seem to get my internet working on the other devices.
    If i leave it to automatic, the IP address i get starts with 169. and a message reads
    "AirPort has the self-assigned IP address 169.254.156.212 and will not be able to connect to the Internet."
    Could this be because the internet is coming from a USB dongle?  Is my computer too old?
    Has anyone been able to get their internet sharing working using a verizon USB dongle?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Update: For the heck of it, i tried connecting using my ipod touch - and it works! able to connect to the network and get on the internet.
    (that was after i changed the IP from automatic 169 to the IP address of the USB modem.)
    The ipad still won't connect (i'm told it may be due to a WEP non-compatibility)
    and i'm not sure what's up with the Roku...
    but it does work on one device.

    We are trying to pilot it but cannot find a way of allowing us to control the sequence of importing transports - it's fine for small single transports but we can't see how to control the order of multiple transports or how to re-transport specific indiviual transports.
    Thanks

    You can but you have to install Rosetta from one of your (snow)leopard) disks. It's not a good idea if you don't know what you are doing. But it does work. There are some instructions online if you really want to give it a go. FCS2 is not native intel and Lion is not supporting PPC anymore. So while you can it is questionable if you should. Probably time to up or cross grade.

    No, I have not been able to open it either when downloading right off of Apple's Downloads website.  I keep getting the error
    "The following disk images couldn't be opened"  Image: MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.8.dmg ; Reason: not recognized.
    Apparently people downloading it through Software update are not having a problem, but I need to keep the file so I can run it on multiple computers without having to re-download it.
    Also, the file is only 1.07 GB, not 1.09 GB as advertised.
    I'm experiencing the same situation here. Same error and file size.
    To be accurate, the file is 1.071.015.728 byte and its MD5 hash is c1b40fabb9a8d2b21484546dbe86d446.
    When I download the update at work (Modena, Italy) I keep getting this file, no matter how many times I try to download it, but if I download the update at home (Cento, Italy) the file is bigger and I can mount it without problems.
    I asked two friends to try to get it and one of them from Reggio Emilia (Italy) got the right DMG, the other from Padova (Italy) got the corrupted DMG and the "not recognized" error. We have all different ISP so I can not tell if it's ISP related.
    I may be wrong but couldn't it be that some server in the Apple's CDN has got the corrupted copy of the update and serves it to users requesting the file from some specific locations?
    Anyway, I opened an incident with Apple through Express Lane that has now been escalated.
    I'll report back their findings as soon as they reply to me.

  • Has anyone been able to re-download artist lessons yet? or has Apple still just ignored us about this?

    Has anyone been able to re-download artist lessons yet? or has Apple still just ignored us about this?

    Yes, my first post is all about how darn iffy the adaptors are and I have two of them to return now.
    I question your answer because I am betting that four drives that are in one enclosure NOT all RAIDed together as one drive, but as four separate drives that those four drive will count as four devices. The daisy chain that I had going had eight drives in TWO quad boxes, four drives in TWO dual drives and another drive in a single enclosure. A total of five “devices” if you will, but also a total of 13 drives that were usually in this daisy chain.
    Both of the Apple branded Thunderbolt to FireWire adaptors chocked BIG TIME on this and it works no problem on my older MBP. You basically can not use a new Mac when you are connected to a daisy chain like this!
    Just checked the Apple website and indeed, I can get a new MBP with FireWire 800, just not with the Retina display! I wish that I would have known this five months ago before this all started!
