I tried to upgrade my iTunes to Itunes 7, but it requires a newer operating system for my computer, and refuses to open. How do I get my old iTunes back? I had the version 6.0.5 and whenever I try to download it from the Apple website, it says there is nothing to download. Help!

Powerbook G4, Mac OS X (10.4.6)

    Thanks. I'm trying that, although it takes an hour and a half to download. Do you have any other ideas? When I tried to download iTunes 6.0.5 from the Apple website, it downloaded, but then said there was nothing to install. Is there anything I can do about that? Because I don't know if downloading it from oldapps.com will solve this side to the problem.
    Thanks for helping.

    HELP! I downloaded an my old version of iTunes from oldapps.com, but it responded the same way as when I did it from the Apple website: It reaches the installation point, then says that it cannot be installed because there is nothing to be installed. What do I do???

    I was having the exact same problem. I'm not sure how safe this is because I don't know much about computers but it seems to have worked for me. What I did was to put iTunes and all the associated files (except the music files, which I moved to another location and renamed the folder) in the trash, then emptied the trash. Then I reinstalled iTunes from the Mac OS X Disc which came with my computer (I had to search through all the files in the disc to find the install iTunes thingy). Then all I had to do was install the iTunes 6 which I down loaded from oldapps.com or whatever it is. Everything seems fine now.... one second, I'll just double check...... yep, all good.
    I have a feeling, however, that if you just move the iTunes application to the trash and empty the trash you won't get that nothing to intall message. Hope that helps.

    When cleaning out all things iTunes from previous installations, don't forget to check in the Library/Receipts folder of your system. I was getting the 'nothing to install' message too. Good luck...
