Sounds like you have a "damaged track" or "damaged file".
This worked for me today downloading Kendrick Lamar's new Album "good kid, m.A.A.d city".
My situation: I bought the album today for my Mac,  MacBook Pro, iPad 2, and iPhone 4S devices.
Issue: One song (only on my MacBook Pro) would not play, instead display "
EX: left"
Solution: 1. Manually delete the song (giving you the error) permantly from the authorized computer.
2. Open iTunes, Click iTunes Store (left sidebar), and locate Quick Links and then click Purchased to proceed.
3. Click "Not On This Computer", find the song that wouldn't play, and re-download it again.
4. Check your Music Library for your song (Should download inside the associated album) and hit play.
EX: (Song I purchased that wouldn't play because of authorization, playing)
Enjoy!

  • My mac air is re-starting several times during the day, anyone have any idea what I can do to fixed it

    My mac air is re-starting several times during the day, anyone have any idea what I can do to fixed it?

    I was having this problem while still using Mavericks -- it started after a Mavericks update last spring.  During the initial Yosemite beta runs over the summer, it seemed to be fixed, but after the official launch in October, I had all sorts of problems keeping connected.  Its gotten a little better, but still happens to at least one of my devices every day.  Weird that we still cannot figure out why the connection keeps dropping on some devices, but not others, and then the next day, one of the devices that didn't disconnect the previous day will disconnect, but the ones that did disconnect, stay connected.  It's just sloppy, poorly written software for technology that isn't working the way it should.  If you turn off Continuity and Handoff on all your devices, you will probably see that everything stays connected.  With those turned off on all devices, TC stayed connected to everything for over a month.  The day I turned Continuity back on, all the problems started again.  It had something to do with the bluetooth version being used, the wifi routine, and Apple's AirPlay technology not quite getting along with each other.

  • HT1689 I can't access the iTunes store any more.  Does anyone have any ideas what I can do?

    I have never had any issues going to the iTunes store from my account.  Now, all of a sudden, it just says it's loading but never does.  Not sure what's going on.  Any help would be much appreciated.

  • Time Machine will not let me restore from backups after June, 2013.  I can see the files on the external hard drive but Time Machine skips all of them and goes back to June, 2013. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is?

    And why not? Apple is selling these things like BigMacs. They can't make enough of them. You've been suffering since May because you refuse to get a decent router.
    Can you imagine if a company that makes a refrigerator told me that I needed to upgrade my electrical system to rectify a problem with their device? What kind of response IS that?!?!
    What if the problem with their device is that it requires a new-fangled "grounded" outlet and your circa 1890 house doesn't have grounded outlets. Would you refuse to purchase a $ 25 adapter on principle?

  • My iPhone 3G will not turn on, but iTunes recognizes it to sync.  Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?  This was a sudden occurance-phone worked without issue before.

    This afternoon I was used my iPhone 3G.  I then put it aside (it was left on) for about an hour.  When I went to use it again, nothing happens.  The home button will not call up the lock screen.  The lock button will not turn the phone on, off, or lock it.  When I plug it into iTunes, it recognizes it to sync.  Also if someone tries to call me it will ring on their end, but nothing on my end. 
    The iPhone is over two years old (purchased in April 2009), so it is out of warranty.  Also, everything is up to date on the iPhone.
    Does anyone have any idea what the issue might be?
    Thank you in advance.
    Shannon

    What iPhone do you have? You can check in settings>>general>> about.
    If you have a 3G you cannot update beyond iOS 4.2.1. The 3G is over 4 years old an was discontinued over 2 1/2 years ago. You need the latest ios to run the latest versions of some apps. If you have a 3GS you can update.
    If your phone is not responding, reset it by pressing and holding down both the home button ad lock/ sleep button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears.

  • My shuffle will not work!! it charges but once of charge it doesn't work, reset it but still no joy?? any ideas??

    my shuffle will not work!! it charges but once of charge it doesn't work, reset it but still no joy?? any ideas??

    I did a little bit of experimenting. I have an iPad original versions myself. I took it out of the box knowing that I haven used it in months and I expected the battery to be dead and sure enough the battery was as dead as I imagined it would be. For the first 30 minutes I experienced exactly what you are experiencing, but then the iPad suddenly powered up on its own (like it does when plugged into the charger) and I am using it now to type this response to you.
    My point is that I am starting tothink that your battery has suddenly died on you for some reason or you have a hardware problem now. I would still try leaving the iPad charge for a while longer - maybe even overnight - and then try again in the morning. Unplug the iPad and try resetting with the home and sleep buttons. Try plugging the iPad in again. Unplug it, try restarting again. Let it charge for a while again.
    After trying something like that, if it still will not start up, then I think it's time for a trip to an Apple Store and see what the Apple Techs think.

  • Anyone have any idea where I can purchase FCP 7 Studio upgrade?

    Anyone have any idea where I can purchase a new copy of FCP 7 Studio upgrade?

    The two places I knew about have sold out. (fwiw - these were new retail, not upgrade). Your best bet may be finding someone on craigslist or ebay who is switching to Avid or Premiere and getting rid of the FCS suite. Buyer beware and all that.
    Good luck,

  • Hi, I'm moving my site from MobileMe to Filezilla and there is apparently a coding error on iWeb that means when I try to get onto my site there's no access online and it says there are too many redirects. Anyone have any idea what this might be?

    Hi, I'm moving my site from MobileMe to Filezilla and there is apparently a coding error on iWeb that means when I try to get onto my site there's no access online and it says there are too many redirects. Anyone have any idea what this might be?

    Well, firstly Filezilla is not a hosting company but an ftp client that helps you upload your site to your new server. You need to purchase a new hosting account first though.
    If you have iWeb 09 then you can publish directly to your new host and you select the publish to ftp option and not MobileMe - MobileMe won't be here after tomorrow.
    You can also publish to a local folder if want to and use Filezilla to upload your site to your server.
    You don't need re-directs as MobileMe won't be here so you need to cancel and delete your domain name from your MobileMe account and then cancel any domain name forwarding that you have at your domain name registrar - that is what the redirects are about.
    Firstly ensure that you have your new hostings account - Filezilla is not a host, rather an ftp client that you use to upload your site.

  • My Mac has suddenly stopped playing my DVDs including a DVD it played fine only 3 days ago. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong and how I could fix it? Thank you.

    My Mac has suddenly stopped playing my DVDs including a DVD it played fine only 3 days ago. I insert the DVD and wait for the player to start automatically but after 10 minutes, nothing is happening and it sounds like the disk has stopped spinning. I've now tried with four different DVDs (all store bought and so perfectly normal disks). The Mac doesn't eject the disk or anything it just doesn't seem to respond to it being there at all.
    My main confusion is why this suddenly happened today when it was perfectly fine last week.
    Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong and how I could fix it? Thank you.

    After months of working OK Time Machine is reporting "The backup was not performed because an error occurred while copying files to the backup disk". Anyone have any idea what's gone wrong?

    I followed #C3 and loaded Time Machine Buddy, which was defnitely helpful, then deleted the file that the backup failed at, but after 3 more attempts I stopped deleting or excluding files as this wasn't improving the situation.
    The recommendation is to exclude those files from being backed-up, not to delete them!
    Updating boot support partitions for the volume as required:
    Yes, that's a bit misleading.  It just means that will be done, if it's required, which it isn't on your backups.
    I have no idea if anything actually was changed however just when I had given up and walked away, TM has started working after a week of failing.
    It probably did find and fix something.  Just for reference, Disk Utiltiy usually shows the progress and repair messages in the center part of the window, but often doesn't when repairing a sparse bundle on a network.  You can see the messages at any time by clicking the Log icon in the toolbar, or select Window > Show Log from the menubar.
    Anyway, glad it's sorted out!

    My iPad2 has repeatedly refused to update to iOS7, whether connected to a PC or not.  The error message indicates an unknown error has occurred, with error code 6.  Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be and how to solve it?  Many thanks.

    Hi
    I followed this guy's instructions and it worked:
    http://evsiphone.blogspot.com/2009/05/iphone-iphone-could-not-be-restored.html
    I did disable the security (AVG and Zone Alarm) when I tried on my own PC. My wife's laptop which eventually got it working also uses AVG and Zone Alarm but on an XP O/S whereas my PC is Vista - maybe this is why.
    Cheers for you help.

  • I cannot install iTunes updates as of today.  Does anyone have any idea what changed with iTunes?

    The question apparently needs to be typed in twice...  good work.  Here it is again:
    I cannot install iTunes updates as of today.  Does anyone have any idea what changed with iTunes?

    Is this a distinct issue from the 42404?
    If so, are you getting an error message when you try to install iTunes? If so, what does it say? (Precise text, please.)

    Hi sunnylordz,
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities. Based on what you stated, it sounds like you have no service on the iPhone. It looks like you have already done some troubleshooting. There is one step you did not mention trying that i think is worth trying. 
    If you see No Service in the status bar of your iPhone or iPad - Apple Support
    Remove the SIM card. If the SIM card is damaged, worn, or bent, or if it's too big or small for the SIM tray, contact your carrier for a new one. Then reinsert the SIM card.
    Cheers,
    Mario
