Digg.com is running a BSAlert.com story wherein Apple is warning users that iTunes 7.0.2 may not work with Microsoft’s recently released Windows Vista on many PCs.
Apple has recommended that users wait until a compatible version of iTunes, which is due for release within the next few weeks, is available before migrating to Visa.
Apple’s Knowledge Base article has cited the following issues:
-iTunes Store purchases may not play when upgrading to Windows Vista from Windows 2000 or XP.
-iPod models with the “Enable Disk Use” option turned off may be unable to update or restore iPod software, and make changes to iPod settings.
-iPod models configured to Auto Sync and have the “Enable Disk Use” option turned off may require being ejected and reconnected to resync.
-Ejecting an iPod from the Windows System Tray using the “Safely Remove Hardware” feature may corrupt your iPod. To always safely eject an iPod, choose Eject iPod from the Controls menu within iTunes.
-Cover Flow animation may be slower than expected.
-Contacts and calendars will not sync with iPod.
The company has advised users to take the following steps:
1. Deauthorize all iTunes Store accounts.
2. Enable Disk Use on all iPod models.
3. Uninstall iTunes.
4. Perform a clean install of Windows Vista (Highly recommended but not required).
5. Reinstall the latest version of iTunes.
6. Open iTunes.
7. Choose Authorize Computer from the Store menu in iTunes.
Customers who have upgraded to Windows Vista and are still experiencing issues playing iTunes Store purchases should download and run the iTunes Repair Tool for Vista after re-installing iTunes 7.0.2.
