When I last opened itunes there was an update available. I told it to go ahead and install. when finished I did a reboot as requested. When I tried, subsequently, to access itunes I was given a message that it could'nt work until quicktime was deleted. Following their instruction on how to accomplish this I stupidly deleted quicktime. Although I have reinstalled quicktime (many times) when I now click on itunes I am told that I only have quicktime 7.5 and need 7.5.5 or later. I have tried downloading this but it makes no difference. Hellllllpppppp.

Hey la13joker, Unfortunately, unless you own an iPod there's a slim chance that your MP3 player will be able to use songs downloaded from iTunes. iTunes uses its own proprietary digital rights management (DRM) protection, which is designed to protect music and other files downloaded through the iTunes service from being illegally copied. While there may be some software updates for iTunes or firmware updates for your MP3 player available to provide limited cross-compatibility, Apple so far has not yet made its DRM system widely available to other MP3 player manufacturers. Since this MP3 player operates on a Windows-based platform, your best bet may be to try using the "Media Mall" option located within Windows Media Player. This should be able to provide you with a list of music services that are currently available and compatible with this device. Remember that you can always contact the manufacturer if you are unsure how to proceed. Generally, the manufacturer of any device may have the most in-depth knowledge on compatible software titles, in addition to any potential work-arounds for common software conflicts. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead. Use Us.
