iTunes Almost Works with Windows Vista

Apple has released an update to iTunes, version 7.1 addressed a number of issues with Windows Vista, but a few issues still remain.

Ejecting an iPod from Windows Explorer or the Windows notification area (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. If your iPod becomes corrupt, selecting your iPod in iTunes and clicking Restore in the iPod’s Summary panel should return your iPod to a working condition.

iTunes may display text or graphics incorrectly on your screen. Resizing the iTunes window should correct this issue.

Contacts from Windows Address Book may not sync with iPod.

iTunes remains unsupported on 64 bit editions of Windows, including Windows Vista and Windows XP x64.

We Say: Again, a clean install is recommended, and you should deauthorize all accounts before upgrading. If we could just copy mp3’s and play them on the iPod to start with, none of this would be a problem.
