Question by SledgeHammer: Itunes version 8 download problem. I have Windows XP Pro..yes with updates and everything!! ?
BUT!!!!!!! Can not download version 8 for my new ipod??!!! No software comes with the Ipod on purchase because “apparently” software is “readily” available from Apple website….HOGWASH!!
When I try to download version 8, a new page IMMEDIATELY opens up that says something like..”congratulations for downloading version 8″
But in reality NOTHING has happened. No new software anywhere, C drive, D drive, desktop, in fact NOWHERE!!!
Tried several times and the same stupid sequence of events happens without any new developments. Consequently, the Ipod wont work.
What am I doing wrong if anything?? I have looked up other forums and this is a common problem BUT seems to be no comprehensible solution.
Can anyone help??
Thanks a bunch Voca….Problem solved!!!….thanks to your solution.

It’s a VERY common problem, and it’s on Apple’s side. I have had nearly a dozen people this week come into my shop and ask me to make them a copy of iTunes 8 either on a CD or on a thumb drive. As much as I would love to, I can’t post my installer anywhere on the internet that doesn’t have a limit restriction. Unfortunately there’s no resolution yet. Here’s the latest downloadable version of iTunes 8, and I’ve heard that people install this, then update it, and they have the latest version….
Hope this helps!
One other thing — If you have automatic updates turned on for Windows XP, for the love of Christ please change settings so that you have to authorize Windows what updates to install.. and do NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT!!! install Service Pack 3…. it is imminant death to your computer. I’ve seen it keel over 10 out of 10 computers in my shop.. working on another right as I type this.
