After fighting with Lion for a couple years, I retreated to Snow Leopard several months ago.  Just recently, I finally got around to connecting my iPad back up to my iMac, with the intention of adding a PDF file to iBooks.  Lo and behold, the iTunes 8.0 installed on my restored Snow Leopard iMac did not even register my iPad.  I attempted to update iTunes via the app store but had trouble connecting.  Suffice it to say I finally was able to download iTunes 11.0.4 from Apple's support site.  The image below shows the result.  So just how does one report the problem to the software manufacturer?  I've not yet turned up anything pertinate or helpful in my googling attempts.

    "Retreating" is not something that's ever been supported by Apple.  I suspect this is just the first of the obstacles you may expect to encounter.


    Instead of retreating, I would suggest considering moving forward (to Mountain Lion), or at the very least, staying as advanced as you were (Lion).  My strong suspicion is the latest iTunes found some remnants of Lion out there (in addition to the Snow Leopard) that it could not handle.
