I installed Windows 8 Pro 64-bit on my Sony Vaio laptop, and now whenever I try to sync my iPod classic, iTunes crashes Windows with WFP_VIOLATION. Is this a known issue? I have tried removing and reinstalling iTunes, and I'm getting the same result.


iPod classic, Other OS, Windows 8 Pro

    iTunes is not currently supported on Windows 8. It works for some, if they're lucky, but obviously not for you. Hopefully the delayed iTunes 11 will arrive soon, ready to work with Windows 8, but there is no guarantee.

    iTunes 11 still crashes Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, when I try to sync my iPod Nano 7th Generation.

    Please help.

    Make sure all your device drivers are completely up to date.

    All device drivers are up to date, running iTunes 11, windows 8, mostly works, but about 1/2 the time, when I click on sync, I get the blue screen of death, and then a reboot. It has just about toasted my iPod 160gb classic, I have to run a restore to it now, but with how unstable this is with iTunes, I am afraid too. This sort of *****, and I have the same sync problem with my iPod nano (16gb). I was hoping that 11 would fix the problems, but still working as bad as it did in 10. And now in iTunes 11 I can not even find where I ask it to look for a new update.
