I have done that:
Trash ALL (begin by com.apple.iTunes*) the iTunes pref files (from users/Your Name/Library/Preferences)
Trash, reboot, relaunch iTunes, accept conditions.
Still having some rare freezes.
Made a repair permissions on disk with the disk utilities.
No more freeze since one week.
Hope will help.
PLEASE TRY THIS:
- Don't run iTunes from a Dock Icon
- Run iTuns from the application folder
If this works for you then remove Dock icon and recreate it.
HAS WORKED FOR ME
I'm having the same issue with my MB Air. But for me it's only happened twice, it's intermittent for many so any so called solution will probably not work for long. I'm hoping Apple will release a software solution to this soon.
I think this is the fix. I believe it has something to do with a backup.
I noticed that when i tried the deleting the Genius file and restarting iTunes, that kind of fixed it.
I also noticed that when i connected, there was a corrupted backup issue.
So, I opened terminal and typed this:
defaults write com.apple.iTunes AutomaticDeviceBackupsDisabled -bool true
then i started iTunes.
If it doesn't work, then just turn on the backup again and change "true" to "false"
As all of the mentioned "cures" were only of temporary use for me I've gone back to 10.6.5 via the USB-ThumbDrive, then installed 10.6.6(!) Combo Update and everything is fine again. I'll keep my fingers off 10.6.7 until Apple release a fix for this.
You should ALL send Feedback to Apple so that they become aware of the problem - I'm pretty sure they do NOT read these forums.
It appears that the problem with the 10.6.7 upgrade is not limited to the MBA.
It happened on my 2 year old Mini (prev generation but still Intel). Since the only thing the Mini does is act as my Itunes repository for my Apple TV devices it is useless unless it works very well. It worked fine under 10.6.6 with Itunes 10.2.1. My iMac appears to be fine and I did that upgrade at the same time (well more or less)
Itunes freezes after about 20 seconds. The only difference is that I can Force Quit Itunes and not be forced to press the power button.
I tried restarting (2x) and disk repairs to no avail.
More recently I did a cold boot followed by a restart. Its been about 12 hours and no more freezes.
It seems everyone has posted what has worked for them but the only common ground appears to be that it involves rebooting.
A nasty problem. The upgrade itself sometimes puts Itunes into a unstable state.
I wish Apple would acknowledge this issue and publish something.
