Currently Being ModeratedOct 31, 2008 1:09 AM (in response to WarrioRainShyne Productions)I think I have a similar problem, but my itunes recovers a couple of minutes later. It seems that it is doing something (you can see the processor load in activity monitor). I have the beach ball several times a day, it not only happens after opening itunes. I had no problem before 8.0.1.iMac 24" Aluminium, Mac OS X (10.5.5), iTunes 8.0.1

Currently Being ModeratedNov 3, 2008 7:31 AM (in response to WarrioRainShyne Productions)Same problem here. Unless i found out what was the problem. But still can not understand why it happens so even it was fine before.
For me the problem was hidden in adding of video files with extention .mp4. The files with extention .m4v are fine.
I have very new MacBook and i had to transfer info from my old iBook to this machine, and i suspect that same update to latest version of itunes burned my iBook. Cause now happens absolutely same symthoms. Overload of CPU and as a result overheating provided with spinning beachball and activity which is taking all the CPU power - syslog. Killing this process does not make a big difference for me. Syslog comming up again and eating all possible CPU power. Laptop returning to work to normall condition only after restart if i will not start the iTunes again...MacBook Alluminum 2 GHZ, Mac OS X (10.5.5), iPod video 30GB, iPod Shuffle 1GB
