Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2006 1:35 PM (in response to rockin and rollin)To find your display adaptor, do the following:
1. right click My Computer, select Manage
2. in the resulting screen on the left click Device Manager
3. On the right side of the window, you'll see a list of all system devices. Click the + next to Display adapters
4. A list of your display adapters will be shown. Right click one of them and selectProperties
5. Click the Driver tab to find your version
You'll then need to go to the web site of your PC manufacturer, and follow the instructions they have for finding and updating your driver

Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2006 1:57 PM (in response to Matthew Corkum)He are the specs. for windows
* Windows XP or 2000 (latest service packs recommended)
* 500 MHz Pentium class processor or better
* QuickTime 7.1.3 (included)
* 256MB RAM
* Supported CD-R or DVD-R drive to burn CDs
* Broadband Internet connection (DSL/Cable/LAN) for buying and streaming music
Additional Video Requirements
* 2.0 GHz Pentium class processor or better
* 512MB RAM
* 32MB video RAM
Look at the additional video requirements, 32 MB video ram, I use a notebook, and it's shared ram, but I think 16MB.
maybe it has something to do with that

Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2006 2:53 PM (in response to Matthew Corkum)I'm also witnessing the blocky images and text in CoverFlow. My PC exceeds the min spec. Tried later directx, new graphics drivers and all the tweaks listed in this thread. Still no joy.ASUS, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2006 3:11 PM (in response to boxbenny)Okay, I posted earlier about not being able to use the album cover view with iTunes v7.
I WAS WRONG!
When I tested it out I was Remoted in (with RDP). When I tested it at home it worked SWEET!! I tested again from RDP today, same problem. I'm not sure if it checked my bandwidth link or Apple just disabled it in RDP or some setting that checks your video settings to ensure your current view can handle it. BUT, I do know this. I tested it with VNC(tightvnc) just to check, and VIOLA it worked, albeit slow though.
Sorry to add confusion, just don't use the feature within RDPCustom Build, Windows XP Pro, AMD 64bit X2 3800+ 2GB DDR, ATI 256MB

In case nobody shared this yet, exit iTunes
1. Start - Settings - Control Panels -
2. Click Settings tab
3. Select 32 Bit
4. Click Advanced button. A dialog pops up.
5. Click Troubleshoot tab
6. There should be a slider for hardware
acceleration. Select Full
Click OK buttons to close and save your changes.
Good luck. This worked for me.

Follow rgalanti's steps above. I went into my control panel and increased my resolution to 32 bit from 16 bit and it works beautifully now!!!!!!!Mac OS X (10.4.7)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2006 7:06 PM (in response to Integrity Kevin)OK, read through some more posts here and decided to update my Radeon video drivers to the latest.
This went very smooth and now I get a beautiful display for the album view and also for the Movies section of ITMS.
I still think the install is very poor for the 4 hours it took to download the album covers but HOLY SMOKE this new album display is slick as all get out.
I mean this is the most beautiful UI I've seen on a new piece of software in years. Or even better, it's the best UI/Display I've seen in Windows ever.Dimension 9100, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2006 8:40 PM (in response to Matthew Corkum)Same problem. Matrox G550. I downloaded the latest Matrox drivers from here:
And the latest Direct X from here:
No luck. Prior to this, I had totally removed and then re-installed iTunes following the instructions here:
This is very aggravating. Even more frustrating, is that despite thousands of posts on this forum in the past few days, Apple hasn't acknowleged an issue with iT7. If this was a Microsoft app, they'd be torn a new backside by now.HP Pro workstation, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedSep 14, 2006 10:13 PM (in response to Matthew Corkum)You have to make sure you have Directx 9 installed; I received the same error when I try to view the movies or TV shows witch really *****, I have Directx 9 installed and it still will not let me view the movie or TV shows through the store.Windows XP

Apple seem to be doing NOTHING AT ALL, so reply to my thread and have your say on the subject!athlon 2600, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2006 7:46 AM (in response to Windoze2Mac)I have the same drivers that you do. Mine is also crashing. I don't think it's about the memory. If it is, they need to provide a stripped down verision.Windows XP
