I bought a new Ipad (first version) and am trying to update to 4.3. I click on the "update" tab and it downloads, but after downloading I get the above error and the message "Problem downloading software for the ipad. network connection timed out. make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active". I have no problems with my network. Please help!
While visiting the iTunes store, or purchasing music from it, you may receive error 3259 Windows 7. Any of the
following descriptions will appear with the error:
i "iTunes could not connect to the Store. An unknown error occurred (-3259). Make sure your network connection is
active and try again."
ii "There was an error downloading your music (-3259)"
Here are the various ways to fix error 3259 Windows 7:
Update iTunes
Turn Off your Windows Firewall
Exclude iTunes from the Data Execution Prevention
Repair the iTunes Registry Settings
