    just downloaded itunes 8 and restarted the computer

    upon opening itunes it had an error trying to detect my iupod touch 3 times and crashed twice when trying to play a song and now everything i click just has a delay on reacting

    also tried to update my ipod to 2.1 but having the same issus as what happened when 2.0 was released so kinda expected that

    anyone experiencing problems

    Pretty fine for me too.
    Is it only me or the interface is kinda cluttered?

    Good God genius is slow, I read somewhere it takes a minute per gig so it's going to take nearly 7 hours to check my library????

    Going to bed then, will check this out in the morning if I have time before work.

    How big is your Library and how fast is your Internet Connection?

    I have 2600+ songs and a 6MB/s Internet connection and it only took about 3 Minutes.

    55,282 songs, 4mb/s connection

    So I have aprox 20x your songs , but 2/3 of your connection speed, the question is if we both leave at the same time , what time will we meet in St Louis?
