I don’t mean to sound picky, but couldn’t they try to make their updates line up? I just updated Safari yesterday or the day before.

I was infuriated when I discovered that Apple broke the sorting in iTunes to put numbers after letters at the bottom of the library list, and seemingly in no particular order at that.

Does anybody know if 7.3.2 corrects this problem?

ScottytheMenace,
Sorry, hope I don’t infuriate you more, but 7.3.2 does not correct the “problem” of the sorting. Also, my numbers are in order, from least to greatest, or greatest to least depending on whether I sort them decending or ascending. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

P.S. Take a chill pill my friend. : )

Last time I upgraded iTunes my Apple TV had to resync all content… Any idea if this will happen again?

It takes about 12 hours to do a complete sync (tethered not wireless!)

Before the last update, if one artist or album was choosen by browsing (so only this artist or album was in the main window), it stayed that way if i was switching to check a playlist and came back in the library (only the artist or album was still in the main window. But after the update, if i check a playlist and come back, the entire library would be there, instead of just the artist…
man, i’n not very clear i guess… hard to explain… sorry ;-)

I think this has been the 4th-5th update Apple has released for the Itunes in less than two months… what happened to the so called bullet proof security of Apple software.

@Cyril

Where’s it mentioned that this is a security update?

None of the previous iTunes updates have addressed the issue of the view options on the Nano (at least my 8GB) resetting themselves every time it’s disconnected. It may not be Infuriating, but it sure is exasperating. Hopefully they’ve fixed it this time.

I agree with ScottytheMenace.  The number-sorting issue is the only reason I haven’t upgraded since 7.2.x (the latest version before the sorting issue).

I just upgraded to PC version 7.3.2.6 (how many sub-versions do they need??) and it shows my 30GB iPod has 2.78GB free space (about right I’m guessing) but audio takes up 1,390,289.6GB. Neat trick Apple! It used to be correct but guess what - I deleted the old download file. Sigh.

damn…i should’ve keep my 7.2x
the new upgrades sucks
the whole album sorting alphabetical order thing messed my library list up

A
B
C
[CDS]
D
E…. etc
some reason it goes back to the beginning of the alphabets to “A” “A State of Trance”
then back to
T,U, V and so on

hope this is not too confusion…but this is driving me mad

Anyone have a problem downloading this update?  They usually download in a minute.  This one is taking like a half hour.  What gives?!

ScottytheMenace <—-

Man alive, I’m so glad someone else mentioned that sort thing. I’ve been searching the net trying to figure out if I was the only one with this problem. And this to the list of problems with itunes:

1. Itunes load time is 10 seconds if not on bootup, Winamp is 1 second.

2: Itunes does not allow customization of ripped content (folders, naming scheme etc).
Standard is:

Band - Album - Track # - song.mp3

not

Track # - song.mp3 (itunes)

3: Other programs have difficulty detecting songs images added by itunes (windows media player for example).

4: Order of music. Numbers come before letters. WTF?
