    I recentlyt upgraded form windows XP to windows vista, I may take some fire for this but my XP was bloated and fragmented (somehow two editions f XP got installed on one partition, eek) and when I upgraded to Vista Home Premium it ran incredibly, downloads at least 5x faster and startup in less that 30 seconds on my 2 year old machine.

    Plus beeing a graphics man I really liked the GUI update.

    Anyway when I plugged in my ipod touch into Vista was recoginezed as a camera and not by iTunes at all, so naturally I went to apple.com and used the help section.

    So I...
    -Uninstalled itunes, and anything apple from my machine (device manager, updater etc...)
    -Restored to fresh 1.1.4 Firmware

    On Vista, nothing.

    but when I plugged itinto my brothers XP computer it worked fine, apearing in itunes, ut no luck wiht vista.

    This was the first problem I have had with vista so I called apple. I told them everything and they had me probe the USB's (nothing even though vista though it was a connected camera) and re-reinstall itunes, still nothing. So their sending me a new ipod but i cant help but think this is a sofware issue.

    I specifically told them that it worked fine on another XP machine and they still sent me a new ipod?

    So Is apple stupid?

    Naw, my point was that they ARE sending me a new iPod even after I said it worked on another computer. That is a software issue and they are still sending me a new iPod.

    They are stupid for wasiting their money on me when they could have solved my problem, I dont mind (I have a scratch on my screen) but when I called the guy was like,

    "can you hold on for 3-5 minutes, I have to read a guide about iTunes working on Vista."

    It's not like Windows Vista even remotely comes close to *awesome* OS X Leopard.

    Apple is stupid in replacing iPods without really taking the time to diagnose the problem. A lot of money could be saved for them. Makes the customers happy though.
