Preferred Solution: Installing i Tunes with Windows XP 64

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm trying to update my I-Tunes on my PC running Windows XP Home SP3. Installation cannot complete and I get the following message:

Could not open key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Media. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

I have no idea what that means, this is my home computer so there are no administrators or support personnel...why don't I have access to this key? How can I complete the installation? Help!

I had access to my base computer (Vista) from my laptop (Vista) although with a few hiccups, but after installing i-tunes on the base computer I am shut out of even the my picture, music, video folders on the base computer. It will not allow me in with the "owner" signed in even though both the owner and a second signon are listed as administrator. I simply can't get into that and several other similar folders. I discovered that I could get in if I went through the shared network tab on another computer that was was previously mapped, but not from the "my documents" on the main system. I have had many security issues with Vista, as I am running XP on three other systems and Mac OS on another laptop. It seems as though i-tunes has moved the actual picture and music files and the shortcuts and pointers are not working!

This is in a list of the security and access related issues I have had. Is there way to create a superuser who have override the general system security are do I just suffer??

Cheers,

Hey guys.
My i tunes and quicktime are both upto date, but when i try accessing the i-tunes store i get a Microsoft Visual C++ runtime error and it then closes I-Tunes.

I can access my currently downloaded music, apps etc.... if i click on the x when it says i-tunes store is loading, and can rome through i-tunes fine.
It will also play all my music with no problems.

Have done a registry clean, Virus Scan, Disk Check, Disk cleanup and Defrag and still no luck

It does however come up every now and again, and can access it and download music, apss and things.

Any advice on how to get proper functionality out of it, as it is really bugging me.

Thanks in advance.

I transfer old audio cassettes to CD-R's for family members and friends using Audacity, Been doing this for well over a year now.
Copy the media right over to the hard drive, save as an MP3 and burn it to disc using either WMP or Win Xp's feature.
Daughter got an upgrade to her I-Pod stuff and Quicktime.
Now I can only burn with I-tunes' (slower than molasses) software.
If I use WMP, a dialog window opens and say, WMP can't read this file, It's not an MP3 or is missing a codec, or something to that affect.
If I use Xp, it copies but it sounds like "ZiiiipZiiiipZiiiip". If that's a sound.

Can anyone tell me what happned?
Thank, Jeff

edit.
I should add this is not copyrighted material I'm copying to cd's. It's family stuff like Grandma playing the piano or little Johnny reciting a poem.

Just wanted to be clear.

First, I am running XP, Service pack 3, Amd Athlon II x4 620 Cpu with 4 gigs ram, (only 3 seen by xp).

Today I tried to upgrade my I touch software and downloaded the 4.3 software. Then I tried to upgrade it and it crashed. One of things Apple said to do was to upgrade the software so I downloaded I tunes 10.2.2.12 and ran it. No good.
Then they said to Uninstall Itunes.

When I run Uninstall, it does NOT remove the programs, nor the short cuts on my screen. Yet the uninstall says it is completed.

I really needed my I touch tomarrow morning for a presentation as it has all my notes. My I touch is locked up in USB mode, and cannot restart. I can't even get the damm thing recongnized by I tunes, so that I can force a factory reset.

Any ideas? Any help appreacated. Thanks.

A:i tunes help

Ipods will only sync with one music library, so unfortunately you need to transfer all music to one pc and sync from there... it's to do with copyright.. like if you could sync with any pc you could theoretically distribute purchased music to anyone. bad. they only want your ipod to sync with one library.
there could be ways to get round this... but i;m sure we wouldn't be allowed to discuss them on TSG

I have a CD I burnt about 10 years ago. This disk will play fine in any player I put it into. However, I pop into my PC, and nothing. I want to rip my song back off this disk for my MP3 player, but I can't seem to to access it. If I look at the drive in Explorer it shows that it's an audio CD. if I open the drive, it shows nothing. Note: i have 2 drives, both DVD drives, one Sony and one LiteON. WMP 10 doesn't recognize it as an audio CD.
So, I decided to try to copy the disk. Roxio Disk Copier says this disk is "Reserved by Roxio Drag-To-Disk Kernel"...it says this in the Copier windows, below the source drive, as it's content. This disk was burnt using whatever drag-to-disk version (by Adaptec) was out 10 years ago...prolly like 3 or 4 I guess...Anything I do here?

Q: I Tunes

Hi
I am new to the board. I would like to know more about I Tunes. What are the advantages of downloading i Tunes? I am keen to get an iPod. Thanks
 

A:I Tunes

The only real advantage to using iTunes is the iPod .... you have to use iTunes to load music on to it. Like most of the media players out there it does a decnet job and has become my player of choice (because I own an iPod and can't be bothered mucking about with more than one media player). iTunes music store is another thing though. I hate it, mainly because they use their own proprietary format to copy protect the files and other than the iPod there aren't many players out there that support it.

I have a question for all the Itunes users.

When Importing new cd's do you have your I Tunes set to automatically organize your library?

I ask because I have it set that way and it doesnt do a very good job with orginization. I was going through my library and noticed that a lot of the albums where in folder that they shouldnt be in and a few of the albums had like 10 folders with the same name and the songs where devived beyween these folders.

Also, when I reorganize the Itunes folder through "my computer", then go to play them in Itunes they won't play because they have been moved from there orignal loacation. Is there a way to resink the library w/out having to search for each song individually?
