I downloaded the latest Itunes, says it'll run on 10.4.11, but when I tried to install it, a window said I needed the latest version of quicktime to run itunes 7.5.5. I asked my son to download it to put on the old computer and he said the new quicktime that itunes wants won't run on 10.4.11.

The old computer is a g4 running 10.4.11 Is this computer simply too old to run as an entertainment center. Should I simply toss it out? Seems a shame but if its been obsoleted there's no way out of that.


iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    I'm running 10.4.11 and Software Update tells me Quicktime 7.6.4 is available for my computer.

    Even if you couldn't update, there isn't a rule saying you absolutely have to update every time they tell you there is an update. I stopped updating with iTunes 7.5 because all the newer versions largely seemed to be enhancements associated with purchasing media online. Since all the files sold are lossy format (and movies I get out of the city library) I still buy CDs and I decided it wasn't worth updating any further.

    Have you ran Software Update from the Apple menu?

    For 10.4.11 you can run the latest -> iTunes 9.1.1 and -> QuickTime 7.6.4 for Tiger
    You will also need the latest Security Update and -> Safari 4.1 for Tiger
    You should be able to get all this from Software Update.
