I don't know if this has been covered yet, couldn't find my exact problem...but I'm running Itunes 10 on Windows 7. Pretty new laptop, I'm not running much on it at all. Just added my music recently to Itunes and when I scroll with my touch pad, it lags and takes a few seconds to "catch up." Never had this problem before. It acts like its scrolling, but it doesn't move at all. Anyone have this problem, and if so, what's a solution? Thanks!

    I have the exact same problem, and it's only when I actually plug the iPod into the computer to sync it.

    Also on Win7, didn't have the problem with iTunes v9.x, it only started happening when I upgraded to v10.

    It's annoying as all get out

    Sorry, can't offer any advice but I can tell that I don't see any lag issue when scrolling (with initial scrolling or continued scrolling).

    I am having the same problem. It doesn't matter if my ipod is connected or not, it wont scroll. The only recommendation I can come up with is using the "page up" and "page down" keys to move up and down in the library. I still can't find any explanation for this problem but using those keys sure made it less annoying.

    My friend AND I are having a similar problem.

    I just recently updated to iTunes 10 today (11/12/10) and never encountered any issues with iTunes until I updated. I run Windows XP on a custom built laptop, it seems that iTunes will only scroll down four or five songs while a song is playing, however, if I pause the song that was just playing, I can continually scroll up or down.

    My buddy has an iMac with Windows 7 installed on it and has a very similar problem, only it's much more sporadic regardless of whether a song is playing or paused, any suggestions or does anyone else have this or a variation of this issue???

    I have the same problem.... no matter if iPod is connected or not.
    The lag happens only when view is set to list/album list.

    Waiting for a fix, I'd rather not downgrade....

    I have the same issues. Didnt have problems with version 9. Upgraded to 10 and ever since scrolling from side to side in the itunes store is super laggy and really anoying.

    I have a 64bit win 7 machine so im running the 64bit version of itunes. Has anyone tried uninstalling the 64bit and used the 32bit and had the problem go away?

    I had this problem too but since iTunes 10.1 has come out, it's fixed now However, if it didn't, then I really wouldn't know what the problem is...

    Any suggestions for this? This is driving me nuts. iTune only lags in the iPhone / iPad section when I'm trying to select app, books, etc. In the Library section it works perfectly fine.

    If you launch itunes in "compatibility mode" which you can get into by right clicking on the itunes desktop icon and set the mode to "Wndows XP Service Pack 3" that seems to fix the problem.  This is a workaround until Apple fixes the issue.
