I installed iTunes / Quicktime 2 days ago and have been trying to listen to the 30 second  music reviews in the iTunes store.

However my connection is so slow (170 Kbps) that it keeps stopping and buffering so I have to listen to the 30 seconds in 4 or 5 separate sound bites which is driving me crazy

I have tried using the Pause button like I do for YouTube but unlike YouTube the load stops instead of continuing

I have also :

- Been into iTunes Preferences and changed  the Streaming Buffer Size to Large

- Been into Quicktime Preferences and changed the Streaming Speed to 112 kbps and the Instant On to Short Delay

None of this  has had any noticeable effect - I have tried Apple Tech support but they have so far not been able to help

Any ideas ?
