Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
iTunes isn't compatible with Windows 8, so wait for an update

This post should be flashing in a large red font on Apple's Support home page!

At the time of the posting it was accurate.
As of now, iTunes IS compatible with Windows 8.

I'm running Windows 8 Pro. I've downloaded the latest version of ITunes. When it iTunes comes up, I authorize my PC and nothing more then an iTunes interface comes up.
It will not recognize any of my iPods or iPad. I can't sync to reinstall my apps or music. iTunes is bascially a shell. Thank God I don't have an iPhone. Of course, I don't have the balls to connect my Windows 8 phone to my PC either.
So, in my view, iTunes 11.X doesn't work with Win 8 Pro.
I realize that most of the people in this community is quite adept at manipulating a PC. I contend that if they had to have the same level of knowledge of knowing how a car works in order to use it, none of them would drive.

Have you installed Media Center for Windows 8? I've seen several postings indicating that Media Center installs some necessary functionality to Windows to make iTunes work properly.

I requested the free product code this morning.
I'm waiting on BIll Gates et al to send me a product code as we speek!
Hopefully, that's the solution I'm looking for.

I'm still not able to sync a Ipod Classic with Itunes 11 and Windows 8. I need a fix or this ipod or I have no reason to purchase anything from iTunes. Any help out there?
