Ipod warning for Vista owners



If you’re upgrading to Vista and use an ipod (true Apple branded iPod)… you might want to refrain from hooking the ipod up to the Vista pc. theregister has reported that Apple is sounding the alarm over a serious data corruption issue due to an incompatibility with Vista. It sounds as though users should wait for the next release of iTunes before using their iPod with Vista… there is a workaround….


Folk who can’t wait for the next version of iTunes – due “in the next few weeks”, according to Apple – should deauthorise any iTunes Store accounts held on the PC, enable disk use on the iPod, uninstall iTunes, perform a clean Vista install, re-install iTunes then re-authorise the iTunes Store accounts. Phew. We think we’d rather wait for iTunes 7.0.3…

(yuck.)

There is also an iTunes Repair tool to fix permissions on files required to play store purchases… Apples link is here.

Now you know why they call it “bleeding edge” to have the newest/latest greatest….

–update–

It looks like none of Apple’s software is yet fully compatible with Vista.
