What the XP#%*& happened iTunes?
One of the annoying things with Windows was how iTunes inexplicably snuffed up after an update. It wasn’t the iPod; I could hook it up at the office machine just fine. It wasn’t iTunes itself; I had no problems, again, with the office PC. It was something weird about Windows, and I could not fix it.
I’m no IT genius. I’m not quite a luser, mind you, but I’ve no certifications and will win no awards for my programming or troubleshooting skills. Still, I’m at least semi-competent on figuring stuff out. Yet for the life of me, I could not fix iTunes on my laptop.
Will it do right or blow up?
Post-Switch, I updated iTunes to 4.9. No problem. I hooked up the iPod, trembling a bit due to a Pavlovian response to what a disaster and letdown this has been the past few months. I restored it (you have to reformat/restore your iPod in order to use it between two platforms.. well, I here there’s hacks around that, but the official gist is you have to reformat).
Within, oh, 10-15 minutes, my iPod was restored, updated to the latest, podcast-supporting firmware, and my library was resynched. I was jamming like new.
Viva la Switch, excuse me while I hit Shuffle mode.
