Help !!!!I can no longer find iTunes Producer 2.5.1 anywhere.  This version supported Mac OS X 10.5.8, and I just went out and bought a Macintosh eMac G4 which was on the list of supported hardware for this version of iTunes Producer 2.5.1.   Lo and behold, I just received my G4, and now iTunes Producer 2.6 is only available, and it doesn't support the eMac G4.   Where can I get a copy of iTunesProducer 2.5.1 so that I can run it on this eMac G4 machine ????

Macintosh eMac G4, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Even if you managed to find an older version, the backend might not allow you to use it, sorry.


    As well, the G4 can't run iBA...

    This version of iTunes Producer was available on the Apple website 6 days ago, and I purchased this machine based on this premise.   Uggghhhh!

    Yes, I was able to resolve this by myself.  First, if you have an Intel-based Mac, running OSX 10.6 or higher, you can download iTunesProducer 2.6 (the latest and greatest), and it should work.


    This is how I was able to obtain V2.5.1 of iTunesProducer, which just went out of circulation a week ago:


    - I use FireFox Browser

    - Login to iTunes Connect

    - Go to "Deliver Your Content" page

    - Hover Mouse over iTunesProducer 2.6 link

    - Right-mouse click and select "Copy Link Location"

    - Open Up New Tab in Firefox

    - In this new tab, Paste (i.e., CTRL-V) the link into your URL text area

    - Replace the part of the link that has "2.6" with "2.5.1"

    - Press Enter to go to this newly edited link

    - You will be prompted to Download the 2.5.1 version of iTunesProducer.....voila !


    By the way, I installed V.2.5.1 on my eMac G4 that is running OS X V10.5.8.  It installed and ran, and I was

    able to upload my book without any issues.   Now I'm just waiting for it to get sanctioned in the iBookStore.


    I hope this helps.

    Unfortunately this URL trick doesn't seem to work anymore.

    Could anyone please lend me a hand with v2.5.1 as I needed

    to install it on OS X 10.5.8... Thanks

    4power, I just opened Firefox and followed the steps that were outlined above and it is downloading now. Maybe try it again. I hope it works for you. If not, I may be able to email you or FTP you a copy if you still need it.
