I've been a huge fan of itunes for eons - it was one of the most elegant (not to mention affordable) ways of managing a growing music library... Unfortuntely iTunes 7.x and Vista seem to be a god awful combination... iTunes has bloated out into a slow monstrosity to the point whereby using it seems more like wading through frozen treacle... Then there's the unexplained random blue screens that onyl seem to happen when itunes is running and of course the dissapearing music files and scrambled metadata.... Has anyone else experienced the joys of iTunes+vista???

I use iTunes and Vista on my tablet. This machine does not sync with my iPod. Each successive version has same issue for me - When I start iTunes, the window doesnt draw properly, its a black, blank window, and I have to guess where the minimise button is , and minimise then maximise the window (basically force a full redraw) to get it to show.

Thats my only prob with Vista + iTunes. Metadata/tags etc all fine.

Lets not forget the lack of compatibility with the new Ipod touch and any 64-bit OS.

I recently purchased a shiny new Ipod touch, installed the latest iTunes on my Vista 64 laptop, connected my ipod, "This Ipod is not compatible with this version of iTunes, please download the 64 bit version of iTunes"

Not such a problem, but there is no 64 bit version of iTunes.  The only interum solution was to run a virtual XP session and install itunes on that, thank god for VMware.

Also, worth noting is that on the box of the Ipod Touch, the OS requirement is Win XP or Vista, no mention of 64bit incompatibility.

Im sure there will eventually be a 64 bit Itunes, but it has been a few months since the Touchs release and still no luck.
