I am having a 'problem' installing iTunes v8 - the install seems to go ok until I get to the part of the program which invokes the Quicktime software upload (v7.5).
Although I don't get a 'controlled' Error message, I am advised that
"A newer version of Quicktime is installed on your computer - Quicktime needs to close" a message then appears telling me that iTunes install has failed as "iTunes needs QuickTime" - no **** sherlock!!
Try as I might I am unable to get past this problem - can anyone out there advise me ?

I have uninstalled until I am blue in the face using all teh standard solutions i.e Regedit, MSConfig, removed Temp Files in Docs & Settings etc etc. To my mind there is still part of the system that has nested a piece of Quicktime code that is screwing up the install.

This is doing my head in and I have 2 iPods that requirev v8 that I cannot use!!

View a DSCN movie on Quick time but format is not recognized


You will need a software (probably from Kodak) to play and convert the movies.

Have you tried VLC Player. It can be downloaded free and it can play many formats.

IDVD movie opens before menu when played on DVD player


In your iDVD project go into the DVD Map menu.
(Little flow chart like icon in the bottom-middle of the iDVD menu screen.)

Look for the very first icon in the map. (Upper left)
This has a small DVD symbol and a play icon on it.
Delete this icon.
Re-burn your DVD.
The menu should be shown first now when you play the DVD.

Putting a downloaded movie onto itunes or iphone


everlloyd,
You have to downsize those movies for use on an iPod, it's a waste of space to put it in full size, there are some free shareware versions, quicktime Pro will but it will cost you. Also there are several movie making programs that will do it as well. You want to change you preferences for the iPod to function as a hard drive so you can store file on the iPod, it is a newer version I'm guessing with the latest software so you can play back the new movies even the ones you download from the iTunes Store. Your local Apple Store will also suggest thier favorite programs to do the job.

Can't play certain types of mpg files on my new mac


You may want to check out VLC Media Player. It is cross platform, open source and plays a greater variety of formats than quicktime (including MPEG 1 and 2); plus it is free. I highly recommend for troublesome media files.
Here's the link to the VLC webpage:  http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
For help with the Sony DCR-SR62 I found two links on the apple support site that detail how to get the camera to work with your mac. It appears that your camera is not fully compatible with the mac however you should be able to get the video to work if you import through imovie and follow some of the workarounds detailed in the links below.
