    So i had just gotten an itouch not too long ago and i must admit that i love the thing. however, my computer completely crashed on me and i had to update it, including the processor. so i decided to go with a dual core just so that i wont have to do the same thing in a year. i know that itunes does not support the itouch for computers with 64 bit processors. however, i have NO MUSIC on the thing. i decided to completely reset it before i realized the extent of the problem. i didnt know that itunes had no support for dual core. SOOO i was just hoping that there might be some slight possibility that there might be some other way of getting music onto my ipod. is there any sort of 3rd party programs that would be able to get music onto my ipod? im running windows xp professional x64 edition. any help of any kind would be greatly appreciated

    Until Apple decides to play nice with all 64 bits, it will always be screwed up.

    is it possible to create the F01,F02 etc. folders in the iPod Touch through WinSCP and drag in songs there rather than syncing directly through iTunes????

    I suppose so, if you know the structure, go ahead. But remember that iTunes renames all the files.

    iTunes uses a really bizzare file system, so that wouldn't really work out.

    Your only real options are:

    1) To use an XP or 32-bit windows computer
    2) Run XP virtually on your computer
    3) Wait

    Sorry, the choices aren't that great but that's just iTunes.

    Actually, not really Bizzare, OS X is based off a Unix Core.

    Unix=Linux
    Ipod Touch=OSX
    Ipod Touch Filesystem= Similar to Linux Filesystem

    Oh wait, sorry, you said Itunes.
    My Glasses wernt on.

    I don't think the problem is building the folder structure as much as having to write out the appropriate data forms associated with each file in the iTunesDB file - located in ~/Media/iTunes_Control/iTunes. Best bet is really the VMware/virtual machine solution...

    First of all, iTunes has no problem running on processors with dual cores or 64-bits. I have an Athlon 64 X2 and it runs fine. It's 64-bit Windows that it doesn't like due to a lack of drivers. Install the 32-bit version of Windows and you'll be fine.
