I upgraded to v7 and waited excitedly while it updated songs for gaps and artwork. Once it was done, I chose my "Purchased" playlist and went to browse by Cover Art to see the fanciness and I got this error:
"iTunes is unable to browse album covers on this computer."
in white over grey, where the cover art browser should be. No additional information.
I'm running Windows XP on a P4 2.66ghz with 1.28gb RAM. All recent updates installed, to my knowledge. I have 64mb of shared video memory.
Any clue as to why I can't browse?

One more important thing to check: DirectX isn't just installed, but actually activated.I had DirectX 9.0c installed on my computer but didn't have DirectDraw, Direct3D, etc. enabled.Start -> Run -> dxdiagSwitch to the Display tabClick Enable for all three acceleration options.Screen shots and details at the bottom of the page here:http://www.msfn.org/win2k3/hardwareacc.htm Other OS Win 2003 Server
My PC is having the same trouble except the albums are all pixelated and garbled (is that even a word?). The navigation under the albums is the same way. They move back and forth, but they just don't display correctly. Good thing I have 2 macs waiting for me at home!
I did a restore to the checkpoint created when iTunes 7 + Quicktime was installed and then it restarted. I ran the older version of iTunes and got the message "iTunes Library.itl cannot be read because it was created by an earlier version".
How can I recover from this? I don't want to lose my library of purchased and imported music.
