Apple offers iTunes fix for Vista users

Apple late Thursday posted iTunes Repair Tool for Vista 1.0, a software update that fixes iTunes issues reported by new Windows Vista users. According to widespread reports, music purchased from the iTunes Store could not be played in iTunes on the new Microsoft operating system released this week. Users reported that they received a message saying their computer was not authorized to play the purchased tracks. “The iTunes Repair Tool for Vista 1.0 will repair permissions for important files required by iTunes to play your iTunes Store purchases,” Apple states in the brief release notes.

A question to you guys. I have recently purchased a new PC. I have upgraded to Vista and just yesterday downloaded itunes 7.5 which I think is the latest version. The problem I have encountered is i-tunes recognises my ipod but does not allow me to manage previously saved music. (ie. it’s there but grayed out). Also, when I download new music off cd’s, it stores them in another library all together in tunes and does not donload them onto my ipod at all. What am I doing wrong?
