    Hi Guys

    PC Running: Q6600 OC
    4GB etc... with Vista Ultimate 64 BIT

    You might think why im wanting to know why i want to use itunes 7 instead of itunes 8 to update the latest firmware for my ipod touch.

    Now tonight when i opened up my new itunes 8 it prompted me for an update of the new ipod touch 2.1 firmware officially.

    Now i thought i would go ahead with it it worked fine until after it started to extract the file into the ipod whilst connected via USB. The last thing i wanted to see guess what.....

    A BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH

    saying missing file USBAAPL64.SYS

    now there is this as well not just about another 1000 people on apple discussion have also posted problems.

    Now, before you even get to scroll up and down on this link you will see 1000 items loading up on your status bar i just hope apple will see and sort this out.


    So just beware if your running 64bit or Vista beware BSOD is out and about.

    Im just wondering if i download the firmware outside of itunes will i be able to upload it through itunes by pressing shift and update.

    Thanks

    in the end i just ended uop using my laptop to do it could be a glitch with itunes 8 upgrading from itunes 7. I eventually managed to update and resotre my music to my new updated ipod on my original pc with the problem. i think they will just probably release 8.0.1 soon because of this.
