ITunes Produce delivery error ERROR ITMS-3000

Hi everyone,
I am going crazy trying to publish an e-book on the iBookstore, and I hope I can get some help here.
First some background info:
I am intending to publish a small collection of short stories written in Pages '09 and converted to .epub in a writing tool named Scrivener (where I can have each short story as a separate chapter, which I wouldn't be able to do - I think - if I just converted straight to .epub in Pages), through iTunes Producer.
I have previewed the file many times (in many versions) on my iPad and it works perfectly.
However, when I intend to deliver via iTunes Produce - after filling in all of the required fields of course - I receive this error message upon delivery:
1 package(s) were not uploaded because they had problems:
          /Users/willustav/Music/iTunes Producer/Playlists/9789198015713.itmsp - Error Messages:
                    Apple's web service operation was not successful
                    Unable to authenticate the package: 9789198015713.itmsp
                    ERROR ITMS-3000: "Line 48 column 27: element "audience" missing required attribute "scheme" at XPath /package/book/metadata/audience_info/audience"
                    ERROR ITMS-3000: "Line 48 column 38: element "audience" incomplete; expected element "range" or "value" at XPath /package/book/metadata/audience_info/audience"
Now, I cannot for the love of God understand what it means. I have tried to tweak the .epub conversion settings to be as plain as possible (in Scrivener) and I just can't make any sense of the "help" from Apple support, which just says:

Why am I getting a delivery error in iTunes Producer?
Import errors can appear after a validated EPUB file and the required metadata have been delivered. An import error can be caused by the following:
Your EPUB contains files not listed in the manifest. This error is not generally caught by EPUBCheck. All files must be listed in the manifest, or there is no way to confirm that they are intended for distribution.
Your EPUB contains characters that are not UTF-8 or UTF-16. This is typically caused by including accented or other special characters in the EPUB. If they are not properly encoded, they will not appear as expected when the customer reads your book. iTunes Producer lists the exact files that have these issues in the delivery error report.
XHTML namespace is not properly declared in all HTML in your EPUB. This is a strict requirement for the EPUB standard. Check to ensure the proper namespace is declared in each HTML document. See the current spec at http://www.idpf.org/2007/ops/ops2.0/download/.
All date formats are not full and complete. There are strict requirements for dates listed in the EPUB OPF and NCX files. Check to see that they are complete and properly formatted.
Your filenames have spaces or encoded characters. If your EPUB has any spaces in filenames, be sure the spaces are properly encoded in the EPUB manifest by using "%20" in their place. Filenames may not contain periods (".") other than to separate the filename from its extension.
Note that even if your book package passes EPUBCheck, it might contain one or more of the errors above that prevent it from appearing in your iTunes Connect account. [/quote]
There are no periods of spaces in the filenames.
The only thing I can think of is that the text is in swedish, and perhaps the letters "å, ä, ö" can cause difficulties? But I fail to see why or how, if it works and shows perfectly on my iPad upon preview.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I had the exact same problem but solved it. The solution lay in eliminating one unmanifested file within epub. In other words, I had listed a file in the opf manifest and also had it included in my folder as a jpg, but it was unused in the actual html file. This caused the epub to pass epub check but to fail apply validation.
Hope this helps,
Btr

  • ITunes Producer: Problem uploading - ERROR ITMS-5122

    I am having a problem uploading an album via iTunes Producer (Version 2.2.1 (137)).  At the Delivery stage, I receive the message ERROR ITMS-5122: "Genre should be specified using genre label code instead of label: electronic" at Album/Tracks/Track.  I have tried tweaking my upload at both the album and track levels to one or two genres and am seeing a similar error.  Does anyone know how I can correct this issue?  Thank you for any assistance!

    It means that there is no alternate text for the image, in the event that it doesn't load. This will put text where the image should be, so that the reader knows that there was an image that was supposed to display there.
    What it means for your ebook is that your images should be coded as such:
    <img src=".../Images/ABC_bookcover.jpg" alt="Cover for ABC Book" />
    Where the alt text is a description.
    If you want to get around this quickly, you can simply open up all your .xhtml files in text wrangler and do a search for <img src=  and replace it with <img alt="" src= 
    Even if you have nothing in the alt description, having it there will get past the check.

  • New Ibook/itunes producer delivery error message

    I've been uploading ebooks via itunes producer with no plroblem until just recently. Now I get the following error message "com.apple.transporter.util.StreamUtil.readBytes(Ljava/io/InputStream;)[B". The epub file is validated and nothing has changed about how I do or prepare the delivery. This seems like it must be a bug on Apple's side. Has anyone else had this issue and how have you fixed it? I am at a loss. No fixes have worked so far.

    I am also having this same problem.  I'm just using iTunesProducer 2.3.1. and OSX 10.6.7.
    Has anyone had any response from Apple about this?
    I have asked today, but I don't hold out much hope of a reply.

  • ITunes producer says images too large

    trying to upload epub book via iTunes producer. Get error message that images are too large, but they are not.

    You need to have all the apps in iTunes to update them using your Mac. iTunes will show you an update for an app with a number at the right of "Apps", in the sidebar. Just go to Apps and press "1 update available". Sync your iPhone when the download finishes. You can also connect your iPhone to Wi-Fi and download it

    I've now re-entered as non-formatted text (one-entry-at-a-time) every one of the 200+ Glossary entries, and relcated and replaced all illustrations on the Glossary pages. Still, iTP just will not pass this file. Note... the image files noted in this error message are not- repeat not in the book. I can't remove what isn't there. Somebody please help me understand how to correct the glossary "fragments" if they don't appear anywhere. Can you help me parse ths infor to at least see what page these fragments are in?

    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.

  • ITMS-9012 Error uploading package in iTunes Producer

    Hi Everyone,
    I have searched everywhere for this error number but can't seem to find anything about it.
    We finally completed our book, and filled out all of the required info for our paid iBook (we have an ISBN, tax and operational iTunes Connect account) but when I try and upload the package via iTunes Producer I get several errors. All of them are ITMS-9012 and it follows with this: "No NCX Extension found for NavPoint" and will reference different pages. When I check some of the pages it references there are no superfluous items on the page (and not even any 'links' for the page, some of them are strictly text content).
    I am baffled. It took over 4 hours to upload the file and now it seems I need to re-upload but I don't know how to fix the issue before I do. I tried using the Book Proofer app but that seems to only work with non iBA books.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    I don't know if this is an issue after all. After checking my iTunes Connect account, I can see that the book is in my account so it appears to have uploaded successfully even though I got that strange error message.

    Anybody have any advice?  I'd change the book if I need to but I don't have a clue as to what's causing the problem...
    Rocketman

    I got a reply from iBookstore support that fixed me right up.  My issue was not a JAVA issue.  Here's what they sent:
    You can make an update to your settings in iTunes Producer to avoid this issue.
    1. Open iTunes Producer
    2. From the iTunes Producer menu, open Preferences.
    3. Click on the icon for Advanced settings at the right side of the screen.
    4. Uncheck the box next to Signiant.
    5. Close settings and reattempt your delivery.
    You will be notified by email once Signiant is available again.
    Once I did that, my book delivered on the first try.  I'm fixed and thanks to Apple.
