Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2006 9:24 AM (in response to tradermazz)An option to use a "stripped down" version should be available, but you'd never see Apple do that. What is silly about the whole thing is that most of the people having problems have systems that, for all intents and purposes, should be able to handle CoverFlow... and handle it without using 1gb of RAM.
I'm sure Apple is working hard at fixing the issues and, much like some other major releases, we will see 7.0.1 soon. I just wish they'd be more forthcoming and acknowledge the problem(s) officially instead of quietly working them out for the next few weeks and then releasing an update.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2006 6:15 PM (in response to straverse)I have a Sony VAIO PCV-V300. It has the SIS 651. I went to the Sony site and it shows the shipped driver that is also on my system as the only driver they support.
I went to SIS site and there are several new drivers including one just released in june. But their site warns before you download that they ship their product to manufacturers and those Mfrs may modify the SIS product when OEM'd. Thus SIS warns they take no responsibility for compatibility. Not sure if I should risk upgrading since many on this discussion group indicate that upgrading did not fix the issue.Sony Vaio PCV-V300, Windows XP Pro, SIS 651 32MB

Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2006 11:58 AM (in response to Matthew Corkum)I got the same problem. I have updatet directX and ny graphics driver, but itunes still crashes. Why don't apple acknowledge the problems?Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2006 10:56 PM (in response to Matthew Corkum)I had the same problem and tried updating my drivers and downloading the direct9x application, but nothing worked. I also had the minimum video requirements. The solution was actually incredibly easy. My video rate was set to 16 bit (Medium) instead of 32 bit (High). I changed it and voila! Problem solved.Windows XP

Currently Being ModeratedSep 17, 2006 6:33 PM (in response to Matthew Corkum)Just adding my $.02. iTunes works for me except for this: In the iTunes store, when I click on "TV shows" or "movies", I get the "iTunes is unable to browse album covers on this computer".
I'm still able to search for a particular movie or tv show.
I'm going to wait it out. I figure, why screw around with video cards etc when it's obviously a software problem?
Seems as though Apple has buried its head in the sand. They have such a great record, they should really provide some status updates from time to time. They owe it to the customers IMO.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2006 12:47 AM (in response to rgalanti)Many many thanks!! Switching to 32 bit did it for my son's Win2000 machine. We already updated DirectX and the video drivers. I suggest to anyone to do a radical change on your resolution to shake things loose if the 32 bit change doesn't do it, with iTunes closed, and then zero your Display settings back to where you want them, and the above settings from rgalanti and you'll have your best shot at it.
Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2006 4:53 AM (in response to pilk00)Looks like there is a blog post out there about this that's been dugg
It mentions that they have the solution, which is a combination of upgrading software and changing video settings and hardware acceleration.
Unfortunately there are still quite a few of us who are having problems, even after doing all these "fixes." I'm perplexed.
I've also noticed that if I have a video open with VLC, even if it is paused, iTunes will not play correctly - I'll get the digital sputtering and garbled noise. I played with all the QuickTime settings and even changed the priorities for each task... no dice. This is a bit ridiculous. I've got the latest software and drivers for everything and my computer is spyware/adware/virus-free, completely up to date, defgragged, and it more than meets the minimum specs for iTunes 7.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2006 5:41 AM (in response to Matthew Corkum)So it seems that for most people, according to blogs and discussions all over, the problem can be fixed by video and display drivers, Quicktime, adjusting your hardware acceleration and setting your computer to 32bit display. These seem to be the only sure-fire ways to get it working again. But I will call Apple anyway to make sure.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2006 9:08 AM (in response to -Default-)As you say, not quite all of us.
I've made ALL the required adjustments, installs, etc, and still nothing. After 5 hours of tweaking I've given up.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2006 9:17 AM (in response to Matthew Corkum)Just want to add my own frustration that having downloaded itunes 7 only very few album covers have been attached to my songs. 95% + have no album cover and I thought Mr Jobs said all songs would have the album cover attached FOCIntellect PC, Windows XP
