I get the message " We could not complete your itunes Store request. An unknown error occurred(2001)

Above is the exact error message
Let's try with this:

  1. Quit iTunes and any other open applications so only the Finder is open.
  2. Choose Go > Go to Folder.
  3. Type "/users/Shared/SC Info" without the quotes and click Go.

  4. If Finder is not already set to column view, set it by choosing View > as Columns.
  5. Select the SC Info folder and move it to the Trash by choosing File > Move to Trash.
  6. Open iTunes and choose Store > Check for available downloads.
  7. After finishes downloading, choose Store > Authorize.
  8. Enter your account name and password, then click the Authorize button.
Let me know if that worked.

Thank you

I am afraid this is an internal issue with your apple account. You should contact Apple Customer Support.

Please contact Apple Customer Support here:

http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact.html?form=connection&topic=Connecting%20to%20iTunes%20Store&subtopic=Connection%20Errors


- They will ask for your personal information (Name, etc.) then for your OS Version (check on the apple Icon on the upper left corner of your screen, then About this Mac, you will see a new window. The version number is XXXXX "MAC OS X"

- Then on Specific Request, choose "I receive an error message when I try to connect to the iTunes Store"

- And on Select the Error Message, choose "Other (enter error in field below)"

And explain the problem on "Details about the issue". Don't forget to mention the error number 2001.

They should answer in 24 hours.
