    iTunes assistance (it keeps freezing up when trying to sync)

    Hi all-

    Very strange issue recently that is happening:

    I have Windows Vista, with iTunes 7.5.0.20.
    I have been easily able to sync my Gen 5 iPod to this machine for some time now.... Just recently for some reason, when I sync the iPod to my PC (through USB Connection) iTunes FREEZES up and then stops responding, and I am never able to sync the newest 10-15 albums' worth of new music I have in iTunes to my iPod.

    I was syncing just fine before- to my knowledge nothing new was added to the PC.

    Now I know Vista is incorrigable as far as not allowing programs to run without 'approval' etc.

    Could my Windows Vista be somehow blocking my iPod from being able to sync songs now for some reason?

    This is very damn frustrating.... (It is one of many reasons I will NEVER, NEVER get rid of my CD/record collection-- as much as portability with music files and iPods is, there is something to be said about having the TANGIBLE and (relatively) non-destructable CD's!


    Thanks in advance for any help

    Doubt its a vista thing if it has been working ok till now.

    Your Ipod might have a bug up it's butt.See if you can get the 'repair my ipod' thingy to work, I've had a couple of strange problems in the past that has fixed for me. you'll probably need to disable the autosyching function somehow though first, else its gonna try to sync when you plug it in, and freeze on ya.
    A little zen....... Headed your way.......

    Thanks Goo-

    I will try that and see if it helps-

    I have a second iPod that I have not tried syncing to the PC with in a while- I suppose I could try that one too and see if the problem still happens OR not, this troubleshooting might narrow down for certain then, if the issue is with the iPod OR the iTunes....

    You could also try updating your itunes software. I just did mine and it is now:

    7.6.0.29



    the apple "support" forums are pretty useless. I saw a lot of posts about freezing up w/iTunes and Windows Vista, but no answers on what to do to resolve

    Good luck

    I just "upgraded" to iTunes 7.6 for my daughter tonight on her WinXP notebook, and now iTunes is dead in the fucking water AFTER I added her $60worth of Gift Cards to her account...

    I should have just said no when iTunes started and it asked if I wanted to or not...

    OK, just installed iTunes 7.6 onto my other WinXP IBM notebook that has never seen iTunes before... Thus, a new, clean first install...

    With that done...

    It fails to even OPEN the program after it's been clicked on to start...

    Pathetic...

    Wish I could help you - I've got iTunes 7.6.0.29 on my Vista laptop, and the only issue I have is if I have to take a line out of my registry every time to allow my other programs to see the CD rom (and put it back in if I want to make a CD with iTunes).

    Select a song on your Ipod and start it playing. Then put it in the microwave on medium heat for about a minute.

    I don't know if this will help, I just want to see what happens.

    Reinstalled iTunes version 7.3.2.6 at about midnight, and thankfully all is back to normal running order...

    Yeah, every time I used to upgrade iTunes, it would get hosed. I stopped upgrading it about a year ago.

    I have a problem here myself. I was looking for a few songs from The Shield. I found them both. When I tried to purchase them, it said I needed to update to the latest version, so I did so. I then was able to add one, but the other one said I needed to update my version. Not sure what that's all about. Suggestions?

    I've never bothered to look into it, but does any other software work on iPods or is iTunes the only option?

    Here's my issue, as of two days ago my laptop does not recognize my Ipod.
    The library is still there, and the Ipod charges when i plug in, but my Itunes library doesn't know Ipod is there. WTF? Any suggestions?

    If i have to start all over i'm gonna be pissed.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.
