For some reason, my comp refuses to connect to iTunes's store. I've tried signing up for an account, closing my firewall (ZoneAlarm), rebooting, waiting... nothing works. I can get to the online radio stations fine, but that's it. I'm on MSN dialup, using iTunes 126.96.36.199. The appropriate holes have been punched in ZoneAlarm, too. Any suggestions? I'm fairly certain someone's gonna get me a gift card, and suck it would if I couldn't use it (I know I'm getting an iPod in roughly, oh, seven days).

Have you changed any hardware recently? As Mr Boffo says it could be loose IDE cable or it may have failed. Some BIOS will have a section where you can clear warnings, hit DEL to enter setup and see if you can find it.
