    Just got a new computer with Vista home premium pre-loaded on it, when I tried to use iTunes and an iPod my entire system crashed. I downloaded the latest version of iTunes (the one that is supposed to address known issues with Vista) and found that I'm still having problems. Anyone having success with running iTunes/iPod on a Vista machine? :wtc:

    Yep, been running it since November actually. So far I haven't had any issues at all with it.

    I built my current machine in December, put Vista Ultimate on it, along with iTunes 7.x.x (whatever was current at the time) and have no problems. It even recognized my iPod without loading any drivers like I had to do when I got my iPod a year and a half ago.

    I'd guess that there's some crap on that pre-loaded computer that's causing problems. OEMs are always finding new ways to screw up perfectly good computers with shitty "free" software.

    If you buy your song on apple store, go on Dooniz.com first and click over the apple store, and a sum of money will go to help charitie foundation.

    95% of proceeds go to help new members afford their very own subs for less than a dollar a day, right?

    iTunes isn't Vista compatible. Didn't like my Raid SATA at all! Went back to XP and everything works perfect.

    for those of you who arent having problems are you running integrated graphics or do you have cards? i think my problem stems from the fact that i havent installed a dedicated card yet :dunno:
