    hi


    i have got a problem with my itunes, at least i think itunes is the problem, this is why i choose this section.

    i have bought the 2.1 update for my 1st gen touch, which is currently running on 1.1.4. now everytime i try to download the update in itunes it crashes, or more exactly windows vista gives his "itunes isnt working anymore" error and forces me to shut itunes down.

    what to do? restore ipod? reinstall itunes? or anything else?

    thanks for reading so far and even more for every answer. i hope this is the right place for it (because it also has to do with firmware 2.1). sorry if there is a thread explaining, i searched and didnt find one.


    greetings from berlin

    Yeah try reinstalling iTunes. If it still doesn't work, then try downloading 2.1 from [insert unscrupulous website here] and alt+restore it.
