    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your instructions on how to fix THAT ANNOYING SOUND when opening itunes files on version 7.0

    It's working for me - and I can't wait for itunes 8.0 to come out....

    Again many thanks from Rome.

    wow 30k views and no real fix for everyone...still no new update for itunes either? Has there been an official word on all these "suggested" configurations that don't seem to help most of us?

    It worked for me while I've been playing around the internet. But just started playing online poker, nasty sounds are back.

    Isn't it about time we got an official word from Apple as to what they are doing?

    I was thinking of switching to a Mac for my next computer purchase, but this episode makes me very wary.

    iTunes 7.0.1.8 update has gone a long way towards fixing the music playback problems I was having with the original iTunes 7.0 but they still haven't completely fixed it.

    Playback jumps when I use Windows Explorer whilst playing music. I have no problems with other media players (Windows Media Player/ Real Player).

    Until a few weeks ago I used Win Media Player & Creative Zen Touch. I really like iTunes & iPod functionality but this bug is putting me off. I couldn't recommend iTunes to friends and would not have swapped had I known. I'm back to playing music through Windows Media Player.

    Please Apple, let us have a proper fix.

    after a 3+ hours of playing with my the settings for:

    itune ver: 7.0.1.8
    Rate: 96 kHz
    Size: 24 bit
    Channel: 5.1

    ...and reinstalling my SB Audigy 2 sound card ...and playing with all the settings for the soundcard including the Device Controls (creative software) in AudioHQ where i set the digital output sampling rate from 48 kHz to 96 kHz (this is PCM SPDIF output to Home Theatre system).

    Finally things have improved to where sound quality is better than it was with 6.0! However... when a new song begins the song typically stuters and goes scratchy for a few seconds. During the sound degrade CPU usage for Itunes from ~6%-7% up to 65%.

    Also windows refreshing within album view mode to be improved. I an really dumbfounded by Apple sacrificing core quality to satisfy some tactical marketing objective!

    Apple support was able to fix my slow and distorted sound.
    Remove the Secondary IDE Channel and restart your computer.

    The transfer mode was set on the PIO mode and it should be on DMA.
