ITunes keeps asking for a disk while I am trying to uninstall

I am trying to uninstall iTunes so that I can reinstall it.  However, it keeps asking for a disk.  Also I have tried to use Windows Cleanup Utility 7.2, but get an error when I attempt to run it.  I think I may have started uninstalling the components in the wrong order.  Any help is appreciated.  I am using Windows 8.

For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down page in case one of them applies.
If you cannot get a component to uninstall properly move on to the next one, then delete the named folder. The reinstall should be successful.
Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.

  • Why does iTunes keep asking for my password when I want to listen to my music on my iPhone?

    When I want to listen to music on my iPhone, iTunes keeps asking for my password.  I am not purchasing anything.  It started today.  Why is that?

    I've been having the same problem on my iPad and iPhone. I talked to Apple customer service this morning. They had me do the following on both devices in the Settings:
    * Sign out of iTunes & App Store
    * Sign out of FaceTime
    * Sign out of Game Center
    * Delete iCloud account
    They also had me restore my iPad due to some glitchy behavior in the Music app.
    Things seemed to me fixed for a few hours until I went into the iTunes Store app on my iPad and added a movie to my Wish List. When I went back to the Music app, the dreaded "Sign In to iTunes Store" popup started showing up again on both devices. Suspicious!
    So, I cleared out my Wish List in both the iTunes Store and App Store. I've been poking at the Music app on both my iPhone and iPad since then I haven't seen that popup once since then. I'm not going to declare victory yet since it's only been an hour or two, but I thought that this was worth mentioning.

    Having said that, this troubleshooting guide should help:

  • I lost my original disk for photoshop 7... I need to update.. it won't let me.. and keeps asking for the disk.. even though the program is on my pc... How can i get my update?

    I have photoshop 7 on my pc but have lost my original disk.... I went to update it and  the update is not seeing the file on my pc... and it keeps asking for my disk.. but i can't find it...
    How can i update it...

    Ah, you had Photoshop 7.0 working, and now it's not.  I see that as a separate issue to updating it.  I'm not sure why it would ask you to update it.
    Do you know whether you have 7.0 or 7.0.1 at this point?  You might be able to do a Properties function on Photoshp.exe and see that info.
    You could make an attempt to reset Photoshop's preferences to defaults.  Press and hold Control - Shift - Alt simultaneously immediately upon cold-starting Photoshop. If you get the keys down quickly enough - and you have to be really quick - it will prompt you to confirm deletion of your current preferences, which will lead to the establishment of a fresh default set.  If it does not prompt you, you haven't been quick enough to get the keys down.
    Only other thing that comes to mind is to use Windows System Restore to restore back to a restore point where Photoshop was working, or restore from a backup (you do make backups I hope).
    If that fails, and you need to do a fresh install but no longer have the original disk and serial number I'm afraid you may be out of luck.  There's no place I know of from which to download a fresh full copy of Photoshop 7.0.

    What can I do, iPad disabled/lockout and iTunes keeps asking for password, I cannot restore...iTunes grays out backup and restore but my iPad and iPod shows on Apple etc..???

    Try and force iPad into Recovery Mode:
    1. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
    If you cannot turn off the device using the slider, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. When the device turns off, release the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons.
    2. Connect USB cable to computer, leave the other end alone
    3. Press and hold the Home button down and connect the docking end of cable to iPad
    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect To iTune" screen
    5. Release the Home button
    6. Open iTune
    7. You should see "iTunes has detected an iPad in recovery mode"
    8. Use iTune to restore iPad
    Note: You need to be patient and repeat the above many times to recover your iPad

  • When Burning a movie, it keeps asking for more disks

    I have finally gotten around to trying to burn a movie and after I have everything set to go. I click on burn once then the second time to start burning. It asks for the disk, which I insert. Goes through I believe stage 3, then spits out the disk and asks for a new one. I did this even though I thought it was strange because I obvioulsy can only use one disk to view the movie. So I put the new disk in and let it go a while later it asked for another disk. At this point, I cancelled the burn. Help what am I doing wrong. I have looked through all the help topics and the burning section is very vague.

  • ITunes keeps asking for my password

    First, it's important to note that what I'm about to describe is happening only in my MacBook Pro account, not on my iMac account; nor is it happening on my wife's MBP account, nor on her iMac account.  In other words, it's highly probable that some (inadvertent) action of mine has actually enabled this annoying 'feature' of iTunes.  I just can't figure out what I can do to stop it.
    The Problem:
    For the past couple weeks, the iTunes application on my MacBook Pro has been displaying (intermittently) an alert to notify me that I need to enter my User Name (supplied) and Password (which I must enter manually) so that it can continue to make "authorized downloads."  Interestingly, iTunes displays this notice irrespective of whether the application is even running at the time.   I understand that iTunes may need to check in periodically (in the background) with the Apple Store, but I can't figure out why it is no longer able to do this without my authorization every single time.  Here are the steps I've tried so far, to no avail:
    a.  iTunes Preferences > General > Check for new software updates automatically (turned off);
    b.  iTunes Preferences > Store > Always check for available downloads (turned off);
    c.  iTunes Preferences > Store > Automatically download pre-orders when available (turned off);
    d.  I have signed out of the Store, Quit iTunes and Logged out.  Then I logged back in, opened iTunes and Signed In to my account again;
    e.  I have selected iTunes > Store > View My Account and turned OFF "Recommendations and Ping Posting;"
    f.   I have selected iTunes > Store > View My Account and clicked the button to "Reset all warnings for buying and downloading;"
    g.  In the very alert containing my User Name and Password I have checked the box beside "Remember Password;"
    h.  About 10 minutes ago, I opened iTunes Preferences and in the Advanced pane, I clicked on the Reset warnings button beside "Reset all dialog warnings." If this most recent effort finally does the trick — I won't know for sure until several more hours elapse — I promise to log in to let everyone know.

    UPDATE 2:  As promised, I am writing to let everyone know that I believe that I finally may have resolved this problem.  The procedure that seems to have resolved the issue on my computer was one that another user, Mandoskier,  reports having resolved the same problem on his computer (https://discussions.apple.com/message/17276790#17276790), in which he reported the following:  "This problem was solved for me by trashing "com.apple.iTunes.plist" from userid/Library/Preferences folder and repairing disk permissions."
    I trashed that file two days ago, and also repaired disk permissions (using Disk Utility) and iTunes hasn’t once asked for my password!
    May not work for everyone, but it’s worth a try if you haven’t yet given this recommendation a shot.  Good luck, all.

  • ITunes keep asking for credentials

    Hi all, I have an IronPort S170, with latest version and updates.
    We have a lot of users using itunes to sync Apple devices, the problem is that it allways asks for user & password, several times (really annoying). Can anybody help me solving this issue?
    thanks a lot
    Best regards.                  

    HI Gonzalo,
    I assume you're using NTLM SSO. Pending on you configuration this auth popup is created due inability to authenticate via NTLM for the specific request. It seems there are currently known problems with iTunes and NTLM auth. I found records on apple support communitate reporting version 1.6 of iTunes no longer being able to proper authenticate via NTLM. As workaround you could use e.g. IP surrogates which will keep the users IP authenticated once the first request has been authenticated, e.g. via Internet Explorer. By this iTunes will not require to authenticate again. Also your Domain Controller will be happy to have less auth request.

  • Itunes restore asking for another disk

    I backed up my Itunes library on a DVD this afternoon before doing a fresh windows install.
    When I went to restore, it only restored about two-thirds of my music, then asked me for another disk.
    The problem is, there is no other disk. Everything fit onto one disk.  According to the disk, it has all 600+ songs, but will only put on almost 400.
    Can anyone help me? Or is anyone else expirencing the same issue?

  • Itunes keeps asking for me to authorize purchased songs again and again

    I placed all my songs on an external harddrive. Then I got a new computer. I am now using a Vista machine with an Intel Dual Processor. I placed the songs on a new internal harddrive using SATA. I reinstalled Itunes, etc. Now, whenever I ask for a song purchased from Itunes to play, it says that the machine is not authorized to play the song. So I put in my password and a prompt comes up indicating that my machine is now authorized to play the song. I push okay. The song does not play. If I push the play button, a new prompt comes up saying agin that my machine is not authorized to play the song. I then put in the password and a new prompt says that my machine is now authorized to play. I again push okay, but the song does not play and I do this again and again and again.
    I have tried to get rid of the sd file. I have tried changing my password. I have tried changing my ID. I have never changed my account. It's always been the same one since I joined Itunes in 2004 or 2005. I have purchased 280 songs since then, so I'm really upset that I can't access those purchased songs. Everything that is not purchased works fine.
    I should say that my new computer stutters sound and video a little bit. I've done some things to minimize that but it still happens. I don't know if the two are related.
