Yep- same here in the UK. I am trying to update MotoChaser and can't. Just gets stuck on 'Accessing iTunes store'.

I'm not sure if we can't buy anything, but I keep getting a "Network session times out" error when I'm checking for updates on my applications. Doesn't work directly from my iPod Touch, and doesn't work on my PC either.

So I'm assuming it's the same issue, and I'm glad it's not just me.

Me too

I've been having that same error for a few days now. Sorry to hear that others have it too, but I must say that I'm glad I'm not alone! I got so frustrated that I posted about the problem on the Aussie Mac Talk forums.

What LOST video will you download? I'm a huge LOST fan.

Oh and doesn't the 2.2 update work if you just click "Update" from the Summary tab after connecting your iPod/iPhone?

go to the FREE section on itunes. they have the new season 5 trailer. they used THE FRAY's new single with the song. i had goose bumps for every scene they showed on TV... it has some very important past scenes and peeks to the new season...

EDIT: i just remembered.. i think the problem started happening as soon as I AGREED on the new rules and regs for the itunes store

Although I can't update, I have managed to download a free app (lite version of Armado). Is it because it is free do you think?

@ superbad - Awesome, I wish we had video in the Dutch iTunes store. We only have Music, Podcasts and Apps. I guess I'll go look for it on YouTube then!

@wastedyuthe - I've also downloaded free apps. But since updates to games are free as well, it must a bit more complex I think.
