I downloaded the new software and the bug fixer, now i cannot play any of the songs i downloaded from websites through my ipod. Now all those songs sound distorted. Only after i downloaded this software was   I having this problem. But, the songs play fine thru my computer. Has anyone else had this happen to them? I already tried to restore my ipod and nothing happend…help me!

Has anyone else noticed that the Apple Software Update program used when you click on “Check For Updates” in iTunes never works?

Whenever I try it it freezes. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Hi everyone,
I got my 3rd ipod classic in less than a week I’ve had trouble with each of time. None of them update the music, or play the music, I can’t even get it to work for 1 second without it crashing. Can someone please help resolve this issue. I’m truly going outta my freakin my mind.

So the update finally downloaded, and everything is well.  No issues for me.

I’ll go on record as having had zero problems with downloading, performing and using the update. And, yes, the Apple Software Update app worked just fine, too (under Vista, no less). Just want to counterbalance the impression that the process is rife with problems.

Just installed the update - have lost over 6000 songs from iTunes, all my playlists, all my album art and all my ratings.
Anyone else had the same problem?

I downloaded the update yesterday and no problem, just updated my 5g 60gb ipod and my u2 ipod and no problem, just hope that when my 160 gb arrives it works fine as these two.

Does anyone knows if the video out works with the apple universal dock?

Anyone know what the dealio is?

Posted by Andrew on September 20, 2007 at 9:40 AM (CDT)


same problem as Gav and Andrew -_-

I just tend to stay away from updates unless they actually DO something useful. I have 7.3 right now, and it’s working fine; and from what I can tell, the new itunes does nothing to improve my itunes expereince. So why risk it I reckon?? Traditionally, Itunes updates tend to be shit, and I don’t wanna screw up my library ANY MORE (once was enough thanks).
