... but no, still the same stupid message

Currently Being ModeratedSep 28, 2006 7:46 AM (in response to Matthew Corkum)After installing iTunes 7.0.1, my main issue with CoverFlow has been solved - I can browse by cover art now. There are still some speed/memory issues, but at least the major problem has been fixed.
Currently Being ModeratedSep 28, 2006 11:36 AM (in response to Matthew Corkum)Installing 188.8.131.52 allows me to run iTunes instead of it crashing but when I use the cover flow view choice, with my P4 2.8/1Gb XP Pro SP2, Matrox G550 it is just junk displayed both text and graphics. This still needs work but at least the release appears usable now. Haven't connected either of my iPods yet (nano and shuffle) so let's hope that is ok too.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 30, 2006 9:12 AM (in response to Matthew Corkum)It seems there is another place where 3D can be disabled. here's what fixed it for me (Win 2003 srvr - all latest stuff):
1. Need all latest Drivers, DirectX and 3D Accel enabled (see posts above)
2. Need Color-Depth set the 32-bit
3. From Start Menu, click RUN then type "dxdiag" (no quotes)
4. click the "Display" tab.
5. Make sure "DirectDraw Acceleration", "Direct3D Acceleration" and "AGP Texture Acceleration" are ENABLED
I did this and Cover Flow works beautifully.
As a developer, would be nice if Apple caught this more gracefully and provided some kind of informational user feedback.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2006 12:18 AM (in response to itsteddy)It would be greatly professional if Aplle would either at least dsable the cover flow button on computers where cover flow don't work or build in another "light", non 3D version of cover flow for the rest of our machines.
Once again, the new iTunes ist in a pre-beta state to anybody who, like me, works at a software company. Many have old computers and an iPod. My niece has a 2nd gen iMac that's running fine with her iPod. iTunes should serve everybody equally that has, or had until now, an iTunes/iPod compatible machine.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2006 10:35 AM (in response to guermond)Cover Flow still not working for me and I have updated to the 184.108.40.206 version. I have also checked and tried the methods that have helped others on this topic but unfortunately for me, it still displays "itunes is unable to browse album covers on this computer" I will keep checking everyones experience to see if I anyone has any other ideas or god forbid, apple say something lol.Pentium 3 500MHZ 256MBRAM, Windows 2000
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2006 5:25 PM (in response to WinTaper)dxdiag was the key for me - thanks! I've never heard of that.
I don't know why, but DirectDraw and Direct3D Acceleration were both off. (The Hardware acceleration slider on the display properties was already set to Full.) I clicked that "Enable" button, and now Cover Flow works.
My card (Intel 82865G) doesn't have AGP Texture Acceleration, apparently. But Cover Flow works fine.
This is on Windows 2003 Server.
This stupid error message is obviously not a third-order issue!
Currently Being ModeratedOct 6, 2006 12:25 PM (in response to jamezilla)Thank you!!!! Cover Flow finally works.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2006 8:08 PM (in response to The Cooler)I also am experiencing this problem. Does anyone have a solution yet?Gateway, Windows XP
Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2006 8:40 PM (in response to OhioJC)I HAVE THE SOLUTION
i once had this problem too, its ur graphics card (have u had trouble getting certain video games to work)
when i say that its ur video card i dont mean that u need to update it or replace it, just do this
Start> Run> Type "dxdiag" (no quotes> More Help> Trouble shoot
from that do what ever one has to do with graphics (doesnt nessecarly apply to itunes)Black 60 gb Video, Windows XP Pro, If anything I said helped you please mark "Helpful" or "Solved" accordingly
Currently Being ModeratedOct 15, 2006 8:51 PM (in response to R_Dogg)OR
you do this (much easier)
My Computer > Control Panel > Appearence and Themes > (click on any option then...) Settings > Advance > Trouble Shoot > And put the bar on the "Full" option
for some reason these bars go down and will interfere with ALOT of video capabliltiesBlack 60 gb Video, Windows XP Pro, If anything I said helped you please mark "Helpful" or "Solved" accordingly
Currently Being ModeratedOct 16, 2006 8:08 AM (in response to Matthew Corkum)the dxdiag did it for me too, i found that i didnt have a version of directX with direct3D once id downloaded directX 9c and rebooted cover flow worked perfectly.
