I found this on another site and it fixed my problem:

Opened iTunes. Clicked on Preferences and under Parental Controls disabled access to the iTunes Store. I then checked the box to allow access to iTunes U.
When I tried loading the store this time, it sent me directly to iTunes U with no problem.
I then went back into Preferences and enabled access to everything and tries reloading the store.

Voila. I can now connect to the whole store with no problems. Strange
Thank you

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

This worked a treat! Brilliant! Thanks.
still doesnt work :( says it cant connect, I just updated my ipod though and it still wont work, please help? rspv
wow it finally works!!! THANK YOU
Thanks so much - I haven't been able to access the store in months! It finally works!
I had a similar problem. I found that because I had started to use a proxy server for IE but not for Mozilla I could connect to the internet with Firefox but not with the iTunes store. The solution was to uncheck the use of the proxy server in IE. Then iTunes can connect.
wooo this worked for me - after getting attacked by a trojan virus all my settings were mucked up. By going into internet connections in internet explorer (even though I use Mozilla for everything including access to itunes) and changing to the manual proxy setting itunes miraculously worked again!
thankyou!!! Solved my 1 week old problem!!
this worked! thanks!!!
this worked. thanks. who would have guessed this would have caused such havoc...
Worked thanks!
Hey, I think I might know the answer to your problem. Mine wasn't working either. I didn't realize though that my virus protection (Blink Personal) was blocking access, therefore if you have a virus protector click on it, scroll until you find itunes-will be in programs, and click/unclick the block sign-may be in a different form though, so fiddle around with it.
Hope it helps!
Check your LAN settings. I have Firefox and Internet Explorer. I use Mozilla but Internet Explorer was set as my default, remove that setting and it will start to work.
This worked for me! Thanks!!!
thanks, unchecked proxy in IE and started working. Thanks u so much!
This did it for me.
how do you go into LAN settings??
I had this issue after upgrading to the newest itunes. Turned out to be a proxy server issue. See the easy fix here:

I had the same problem when I updated to the newest itunes. Took me a while, but I found out it was a proxy server issue. Check out this link for the solution that worked for me!
Thanks for asking this question, and "irishpajamas" thanks for the link. It worked like a charm :)
Right ok.....the reason your import issue isnt workin is becasuse who may have inserted smthing else b4 and then you clicked the ticked box at the bottom. But for now. go on settings and try to find smthing wich allows you to untick boxes you dont want....however about the internet thing....i am supposing that the compani that gives you internet has blocked u alllowing on that program either of high usage.....have a look!!!

anything else!!

that usually happens when your internet isnt plugged in... both the downloading of the music and the itunes store thing - if your internet is working though.. I dunno whats wrong ... sorry :/
