I just recently got windows 8. Event though I purchased new songs through itunes, I cannot access them now, nor can I transfer my songs from my ipod to my laptop. There may be compatibility issues with Windows 8 and itunes. Any suggestions?

iPod nano, Windows XP

    I was able to get iTunes to work on my WIndows 8 machine by changing its compatibility mode back to XP SP3.  But, when I try certain features (like Get Info on even one track), it causes iTunes to crash.  Also, when I execute iTunes, I'm having to allow it to make changes (even when "run as administrator").

    I "upgraded" compatibility to Windows 7 and iTunes is working better, but not perfectly.  I can download my purchases and modify track info.  I still have to "allow" iTunes to do many things.
