I just updated to iTunes 7.6.

Now my music cuts in and out, badly.

All my music is mine and none of it is purchased. I played my music yesterday on 7.5 without any problems and now with 7.6 it sounds bad.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

PowerBook G4 12, 867 MHz 1.25Gb RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

    Are you playing by use of an Airport basestation or such?

    A link to the other thread would be nice.

    I am having the same trouble. It cuts out at 9 seconds and playback starts again at 20 seconds.

    Here's a sort of update:

    My music is just playing on the computer, no AirTunes, or anything abnormal.

    All my music played fine the day before I did the 7.6 upgrade. After the upgrade I started the computer back up and all the music (any song I played) was choppy.

    The problem kind of fixed itself; I have no idea why but my computer had a Kernal Panic. Only the second or third time I've seen that in a few years but I just shut the computer down for the night. The next day I powered it back on and the music sounded normal again. I don't know what the KP may have reset, but it seemed to fix my problem.

    Wow, that's strange. Glad things worked out in the end, however.

    What's a Kernal Panic?

    My iTunes are doing the exact same thing, cutting out on a song, then re-playing as if it didn't lose any time whatsoever. I also just did the Upgrade, and things seemed to be working okay before, although there were some cut outs at random times, but nothing like now.

    I also figured out that iTunes was messing up my Garageband. Everytime I was in GB, and wanted to hear a song to play along with in iTunes, GB would start squellching, and making some weird distorted noise... It was awful. Apple told me to just trash the GBp.list folder in preferences when this happens. It still happens, and it ***** if I'm in the middle a recording.

    I am using Airport for internet, would that have something to do with this?
