I have an iMac OS X version 10.6.8 and I lost 90% of my songs in iTunes and last time I synched my ipod classic, the songs were wiped there as well.

So...I use the time machine and eventually got all the songs back, now trying to transfer (synch) my ipod but I get a message "Error iTunes (-42408).

What does this mean and how do I fix it.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Is your version of iTunes up to date? If not, that's the first step.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Yes I just recently updated iTunes...10 I think it was.

But when I connect my ipod, it no longer opens in iTunes, which means I cannot edit any of the stuff I have on it.

Note: I am still getting this error message when I open iTunes (-42408).

Cheers.

While your specific error message isn't here, maybe this will help: iTunes: Specific update-and-restore error messages and advanced troubleshooting

iTunes is missing something, best do a fresh install


iTunes: "Error 42408" or "Error 42404" after upgrading to iTunes 9.0.3

Many thanks louishen, I successfully downloaded from the link you provided (took 3 hours...slow connection) but unfortunately when I restarted my computer and opened iTunes, I got the same error message and it still will not recognise my ipod.

The iTunes version now is 10.6.3

Any other ideas would be most appreciative.

Cheers.
