Itunes8 doesn't work on my computer

Just got IPOD nano and went to itunes. Downloaded version 8 and I try to click on music when the site comes up and it comes to a window saying that itunes is having a problem shouls I send it to windows or not. I did plug my nano in and download software to help download the music. I ended up downloading the Safari that the site recommended.
And then I ended up not using it and going back to the internet explorer.
I still am lost. I do have the itunes 5 on my add/remove files.

This happens alot with xp

First go into the control panel,add/remove programs,uninstall quicktime media player and itunes if it is there.
restart your computer.

Go back to apple.com and download and save it to the desktop.Once the download is complete,
close everything you have open,and run the installer from the desktop.

Hi,

Try the following procedure.

first, head into your start> control panel >Add/Remove programs and uninstall your QuickTime.if it goes, good. if it doesn't, we'll just attend to it when we attendto itunes.

next, download and install the Windows Installer CleanUp utility. useit to clear any existing itunes and/or QuickTime installationconfiguration information from the PC.

Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/ (Copy ans paste the link in internet explorer)

next, use the the following document as a guide for manual removal of leftover itunes and quicktime program files:

Removing iTunes and QuickTime for Windows

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1925?viewlocale=en_US

now try to install itunes again. does it go through properly this time?

If not then also try installing latest windows installer software

(Sometimes an iTunes entry or QuickTime entry doesn't show up incleanUp, in conjunction with a missing .msi message, if there's anolder version of the Windows Installer on the PC.)

The problem is, i want to put music from my laptop onto my apple ipod 4GB a1051, how do i do that please?


The following information has come directly from the apple support web site.

Adding Content Automatically or Manually
There are two ways to add content to iPod nano: ? Automatic syncing: When you connect iPod nano to your computer, iPod nano is automatically updated to match the items in your iTunes library. You can sync all your songs, playlists, videos, and podcasts, or, if your entire iTunes library doesn’t fit on iPod nano, you can sync only selected items. You can sync iPod nano automatically with only one computer at a time. ? Manually managing iPod nano: When you connect iPod nano, you can drag items individually to iPod nano and delete them individually from iPod nano. You can add songs from more than one computer without erasing songs from iPod nano. When you manage music yourself, you must always eject iPod nano from iTunes before you disconnect it.

The following URL will bring you to the iPod Nano manual. For more information on setting up you iPod see chapter 2: Setting up iPod Nano

http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPod_nano_5th_gen_UserGuide.pdf

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

How to down load a song to my appleipod nano 2gb?


To download songs to iPod nano: m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update automatically, the download begins. Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano. While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red. When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.” If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on page 22. To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists: 1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list. 2 Click the Options button and click Music. 3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.” The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek

Reseting my ipod


Hi David,

Ok, first get all that music that you do want off that iPod. Use a program like iLinkPod on the mac or iCanExport on a PC.

Next you need to install the very latest version of iTunes8 from the Apple site.

Next, connect the ipod to itunes and then on the main device page of iTunes click the restore button unless it comes up with the message that a new version of the ipod software is available in which case install that.

After it's restarted it should be all ready to go.

All the best

My 1st generation iPod Nano keeps coming up with the error message 'Use iTunes to restore'. I plug it into itunes and it said it detects an ipod in recovery mode..You must restore this ipod before it can...


Hi there,
No, it's not knackered you'll be glad to hear.
  • First things first, make sure you have the latest version of iTunes8 installed.
  • Next, press and hold the Select and Menu buttons together until the apple symbol comes on. It will then show the message you keep getting to connect to iTunes.
  • So connect it to iTunes. This will then say it needs to restore it
  • Click the Restore button where you are given a number of choices. Choose whichever is the bottom one of the choices.
  • During the restore and update leave it connected and during the restart. If the message comes up again, still do not disconnect but click restore again.
  • If none of this works, disconnect then put the ipod into disk mode by pressing and holding Select and Play until it says 'Ok to Disconnect' Which is a weird way of Apple saying 'Please connect me now'! So connect it to the computer, do the restore and that should do it.
If none of that works let me know and we can take it from there.

All the best.

Changed computers


I'm making an assumption that iTunes was working before on the other computer, and now that you have switched computers, the Nano is not being recognized by iTunes?

Try this, from Apple's website:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1339
Summary Learn how to restore iPod, iPod classic, iPod mini, and iPod nano to factory settings.
If you need to restore an iPod shuffle, click here.
Background It is important to understand the difference between "update" and "restore". Update simply installs the software that controls iPod and does not affect the songs and files stored on iPod's disk. Restore erases the iPod's disk and restores iPod to its original factory condition.
Warning: because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library. If you use the Nike + iPod Sport Kit, see this document for more information.

How to restore iPod
  1. Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
  3. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  6. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
  7. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

If you install the itunes version 7.5 that you downloaded, you wont lose your music library. It is a separate file from the programs installation files. You don't need to uninstall the previous version, the new one will install on top of it.
