iTunes is now Vista compatible

If you recently upgraded to Windows Vista, and you happen to own an iPod, one of the things that probably upset you was the lack of compatibility of iTunes with Microsoft’s new “WOW” OS (as they call it). In order to solve most of the issues that are bothering Vista users, Apple has released an update of iTunes to version 7.1.

Here are some of the issues that this latest update solves:

  • Ejecting an iPod from Windows Explorer or the Windows notification area (system tray) using the “Safely Remove Hardware” feature may corrupt your iPod. To always safely eject an iPod, choose Eject iPod from the Controls menu within iTunes. If your iPod becomes corrupt, selecting your iPod in iTunes and clicking Restore in the iPod’s Summary panel should return your iPod to a working condition.
  • iTunes may display text or graphics incorrectly on your screen. Resizing the iTunes window should correct this issue.
  • Contacts from Windows Contacts may not sync with iPod.
  • iTunes remains unsupported on 64 bit editions of Windows, including Windows Vista and Windows XP x64.
