    The issue is with iTunes 9. You have to delete iTunes and any components off of your computer (you probably want to move your iTunes library to an external drive or some other location so you don't lose any media). Find and install iTunes 8. iTunes 8 won't be able to read your current library because it was created with an earlier version, so delete the old library and let iTunes create a new one. Now plug in your iPod, it should pop up on iTunes now (you may need to restore it if you've been trying other "fixes")
    Or else you can also try the following
    PLUG IN YOUR IPOD.
    PRESS THE MENU AND CENTER BUTTON AT SAME TIME UNTIL APPLE LOGO SHOWS UP.

Downloaded itunes onto PC which has Vista. Can't open itunes; get message: Apple Application Support was not found. Uninstalled & reinstalled twice with same results.


Itunes has two version for windows vista, may be you are using the incorrect version.

 

Check you windows version : right click in COMPUTER then click in PROPERTIES and see if you

have a Windows Vista 32 bits or Windows Vista 64 bits.

 

Go to http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

 

If you click on the big blue button, you are downloading the 32 bits version.

if you go down a little bit more, you can see in blue letters "64-bit installer".

 

Take the correct version and that's it.

 

Good luck. Remember to rate my answer, please.

ITunes takes forever to load on my Windows 7 PC (e.g. 10 minutes) - what can be done to fix this?


Resolution Create a New User Account When troubleshooting a variety of issues, it can be useful to determine if the issue affects a specific Windows user account or all accounts. Follow the steps below to create a new user account in Windows Vista or Windows 7:
  1. From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.
  2. Open Add or remove user accounts (If using the Classic View in Windows Vista, open User Accounts. Then open Manage another account).
  3. Select Create a new account and follow the instructions to complete the account setup process.
  4. Once the new account is created, choose Log Off from the Start menu.
  5. Log into the newly created user account.
  6. Open iTunes and determine whether the issue you were experiencing persists in this new user.
If you see the same issue in the newly created user account, proceed to the System-wide troubleshooting section below. If you do not experience the same issue, consult the User-specific troubleshooting section below.
User-specific troubleshooting If your issue only happens in one particular user account, some of the suggestions below may resolve the issue. Before proceeding however, you'll need to make hidden files and folder visible in Windows. Follow steps 1-5 in iTunes for Windows in Windows Vista doesn't open after upgrading.
  • Remove iTunes Plug-ins
    Third-party iTunes plug-ins can cause many issues, particularly if the plug-in has not been updated to be compatible with new versions of iTunes. iTunes plug-ins are stored in the following location:
    C:UsersusernameAppDataRoamingApple ComputeriTunesiTunes Plug-ins
  • Remove iTunes Preference files
    Some of the files that iTunes uses to store settings and preferences may be unusable and cause issues. iTunes has two folders where preferences are saved. Move one of them to the desktop and test to see if the issue persists. If it does, move it back and remove the second folder. The location for the two preference folders are:
    • C:UsersusernameAppDataLocalApple ComputeriTunes
    • C:UsersusernameAppDataRoamingApple ComputeriTunes
  • Create a new iTunes Library
    1. Hold the Shift key while opening iTunes. You will be prompted to Choose iTunes Library.
    2. Choose Create Library to create a new one. In the following window you will be prompted to select a location to save the new iTunes Library.
    3. Click Save. iTunes will open the newly created library. After closing iTunes, you can always select the original library by using the Shift key when opening iTunes.
  • Recreate your iTunes Library
    If you iTunes library has become unusable, rebuilding it as described in How to recreate your iTunes Library and Playlists may resolve the issue.
Check for content files with issues
Sometimes a certain audio file can cause iTunes to quit unexpectedly or stop responding when it is analyzing gapless playback information. To determine which file(s) may be cause the issue follow the steps below:
  1. Quit iTunes.
  2. Navigate to the iTunes folder:
    • Windows Vista - C:usersusernameMusiciTunes
    • Windows 7 - C:usersusernameMy MusiciTunes
  3. Move the iTunes Library.itl file to your desktop
  4. Open iTunes. You should not see any content in iTunes.
  5. From the File menu, choose Add Folder to Library.
  6. Navigate to the folder where your music is located. Typically this is
    • Windows Vista - C:usersusernameMusiciTunesiTunes Media
    • Windows 7 - C:usersusernameMy MusiciTunesiTunes Media
  7. Note: This folder may be called iTunes Music if it was created with iTunes 8 or earlier.

  8. Choose an artist, album, or single song to add the to the library
  9. Wait for iTunes to successfully add the songs to your library and perform the gapless playback scan.
  10. If successful, continue adding back more songs to your library.
  11. If there is an issue with one of your files, you will notice your issue reappear after you attempt to add it to the library. At this point you should repeat these steps being careful not to add the files that cause the issue to occur.
System-wide troubleshooting When troubleshooting system-wide issues with iTunes, there are a few different suggestion to try.
  • Check for viruses
    Windows viruses can interfere with a variety of computer functions including iTunes. Make sure that you have current anti-virus software installed with updated virus definitions and use it to scan your system.
  • Check for anti-virus and/or Internet security software
    Internet Security software itself can sometimes cause iTunes to quit unexpectedly. Try disabling the Internet Security software temporarily or exempting iTunes from any active scanning done by such software. If this resolves the issue, check with the maker of the software for an update to the software or its virus definitions. See the following article for more information: iTunes for Windows: Troubleshooting security software issues.
  • Conflicting processes
    Sometimes other programs and start-up items can conflict with iTunes, look at the following article to troubleshoot such conflicts:
    Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows Vista and Windows 7
  • Removing iTunes configuration files
    Removing unusable configuration files that iTunes uses can resolve launch issues. See "iTunes for Windows Vista or Windows 7 doesn't open after upgrading" for information.
  • Check the iTunes and QuickTime installations
    An improper installation of iTunes or QuickTime can contribute to a variety of issues. Follow the article below to learn how to completely reinstall iTunes and QuickTime:
    Trouble installing iTunes or QuickTime software in Windows
  • Update the drivers on your PC
    Having outdated drivers on your computer can cause strange behaviour with iTunes, QuickTime, iPod, and other applications. See this link to update the drivers on your computer.
