Nothing new here. iPhone settings all still work the same, iPod settings work the same. Still no ability to manually manage files on the iPhone.

Perhaps this is to enhance the stability on the hardware to be introduced next Tuesday.... Like a new iPod perhaps? Or a rev'd Apple Hi-Fi? Yeah, I know, the announcement is Mac related... :D

A bit boring, but it's always nice to get the notice so I can download the latest update when I get home. For some reason downloading updates is really satisfying, even when there are no visible improvements. Go figure.

Now, I'm off to find a thread about what the small August 7th meeting might be all about.

You said it yourself, nothing new iPod related coming next Tuesday... I wouldn't expect anything iPod related any earlier than September.

Quick! Somebody check the resources file and see if there are any interesting strings in there!

I expect to see:
"iPhone 2 64GB for just $249 unlocked"
"Awesome new iMac 30" Quad-core 3.16Ghz and brushed metal and multi-touch"
"Ultraportable Macbook Pro 12" Tablet"
"iPod v6 - the iPhone without the phone part"

:)

Apple should also consider to upgrade there windows upgrader... that this is buggy as **.

1. It's always downloading AGAIN and AGAIN if something doesn't work (good for the datatraffic I guess :P).
2. And always download EVERYTHING (QT, QT+IT, Safari even when you only installed safari).
- And how about that I always have to download WHOLE itunes... instead of just the changed files (the whole 30MB, every little update).
3. If connection is lost, you can hit CANCEL... but that will just do nothing but saying 'cancelling....' (for some 5 hours)

Ah, another update for me to install when I get home, excellent. ;)

I don't think we'll be seeing another iTunes update until the new iPods are released in a couple months. But first things first - new iMacs next Tuesday! :D :cool:

But seriously, if none of that is in there then I am highly disappointed with this update and I will be selling all my mac stuff and building my own computer which is way better than Apple and will only cost me $200 including the 34" LCD and a fax/modem. And also, I am going to get a Zune.

Seriously, if there are no visible enhancements with this update, I'll hold off on installing until I know an UNO update will work with it.

I also enjoy installing updates for reasons that I can't quite put a finger on, but not if it breaks other things. I don't enjoy it THAT much. :rolleyes:

That does sound pretty bad, I think Apple needs to improve the Windows side of things. Though I don't see why the connection would get lost I never have any problems, sounds like your ISP/Router is dodgy.

It fixes a problem I've been having with the iTunes store for a few months.

Prior to the update many images would show as broken links on first visiting the store. Pressing the home icon would reload the main page and display most of the broken images, but a second press of home would be needed to show everything.

I'm not sure what the problem really was; perhaps an issue with my ISP's transparent proxy server?

Sorry, I meant that it will no longer install without "tweaking" some files to trick it into thinking you still have iTunes 7.3.1.

There has to be a better way for Interacto to write that part of their program - this is the second problem I've had with UNO not working with an update simply because of the way UNO determines compatibility.

Is the personal attack necessary? He didn't write a memory leak into the program. It's not like it's easy to increase a program's memory usage by 1270% doing normal tasks!

Everyone chatting about the "Mac-related" townhall meeting next week and prognosticating there will be no i-pod update keep overlooking one key Jobs-esque phrase:

"Oh . . . . one more thing."

I wager the new i-pod comes out next week, touchscreen and all. If the i-tunes update and the rumors about another touchscreen apple device being developed in tandem with the i-phone doesn't spell out imminent "i-pod update", then I don't know what else does.

I feel like a drug addict with these software/hardware updates: come on Steve, give me one more fix. Ugh. :apple::)

By chance have you moved iTunes out of the main /Applications path into a sub-folder? If so, Apple Software Update will not find it. (I have the same problem myself.)

Also for those who may be interested, 7.3.2 does -not- fix the problem with Smart Playlists on the iPhone listing the wrong songs if you do a "recently added", "recently played", "most played" type of list.

Oh well...maybe in 7.3.3...

Everyone chatting about the "Mac-related" townhall meeting next week and prognosticating there will be no i-pod update keep overlooking one key Jobs-esque phrase: "Oh . . . . one more thing."

I've been kind of thinking this to myself recently. I couldn't really see Apple having an August event then another event in September or October. But one could make the point, "Why not have it in a larger venue than Town Hall?" Then again, the original iPod was debuted at Town Hall...

No matter what, the iMac, fate of the Mini, iPod and Nano MUST be bumped or revised before Christmas, so why not the 7th?

I'm going to be bold and say, August 7th: new iMac, revamped Mini (long live the mini!), iLife/iWork '08
"One more thing...": 6G touchscreen iPod, MAYBE new Nano?

Wow, this was quite off-topic from the iTunes update, but it just kind of came out...

My iTunes 7.3.1.3 says no update found when I use the iTunes menu to have it go check for updates.


I downloaded the 7.3.2 from the link on the first page of this thread to Apple's website. I selected WinXP w/SP2

The installer says 7.3.2.6. Now installed, iTunes says 7.3.2.6 - unsure if the other CD Driver, CD Driver DLL or AppleMobileDevice versions changed.

I have WinXP, iPodVideo30, and iPhone 1.0.1 (1C25). And I installed iTunes in it's default folder.

Just putting the info out there for what it's worth.

PS: iTunes installer told me to shut down Outlook or bad things may happen, I did, as well as a C++ development package I was running, IE pointed to this thread, several file explorer windows, etc.

The update did take a (scary) long time as it removed files, shut down services, added files, moved files, restarted services, added more files, shut down services, removed some files, started services, registered services, unregistered services, etc, etc, etc Seemed like a very convoluted thing it was doing. By the way, included an update of QuickTime 7 as well. It suggested I reboot my PC at the end, which I did.

But it all worked in the end. iPhone is still syncing as "correctly" as it's always done. No changes I can see at all, either iPhone or iTunes that is.

However, just to mention, after I updated my iPhone to 1.0.1 it syncs everytime to iTunes, before iTunes was having issues seeing the iPhone every now and again.

Good, because I thought I was crazy.

I think I saw something, but not sure how I created it.

Here's what I did...just in the last hour...

Updated iTunes via Apple Site to 7.3.2.6

Synced iPhone, completed successfully.

Then went into iTunes and "looked" through the iPhone settings on iTunes, but I didn't change anything. Did not see the "Apply" button.

Then I navigated away from iTune's iPhone settings by mouse clicking the Library->Music folder.

iTunes wanted me to apply changes to the iPhone.

As I said, I did not change any iPhone settings in iTunes.

Will try to recreate, if I do, then this is a new bug as it had not happend to me before.

Well, 40 comments and no listing of what this upgrade may have broken... :)

OK, maybe I found one.

Description: After iTunes 7.3.2.6 install and sync to iPhone 1.0.1, when Outlook started after these events, some Outlook calendar events popped up from 184 days ago that were past due and previously dismissed, looked to be just my repeating events scheduled like "pay this credit card it's due today" which occurs every 15th of the month forever, "pay the HOA fee" which is set for every 6 months since it's bi-yearly, etc.


May be iPhone and/or iPod related, since I think my iPodVideo30 has a calendar too it may happen on iPods, I did not test my iPod since I don't have it handy?

Here's the scenario.

I have my iPhone here at work, iPod is at home or in my gym bag, so this delt with the iPhone, so not sure if iPod would have same issue.

Installed iTunes 7.3.2.6 - mine is the .6 version. Successful.
iTunes installer had me shut down PC.
Did that. PC rebooted.
Outlook did not come up, since I don't have it do that, so it remained unstarted.
iTunes sub-processes saw my iPhone was docked and connected.
iTunes started up.
iTunes successfully sync'd to iPhone.
iPhone works, iTunes works, all is happy.
Ran IE, checked macrumors and Outlook Express email (where I don't have calendar events).
Then started Outlook regular version to check my corporate email - 2003 SP 2 I think is the version number.
Outlook typically loads and then tells you about any overdue calendar events.
The overdue calendar events included about a dozen seemingly repeating events that I had dismissed long ago, things like repeating events scheduled like "pay this credit card it's due today" etc. These repeating events were scheduled up to about 184 days ago on my system. Since I had previously dismissed them, and even run Outlook earlier in the day before all this, there were no events that came up then, these only came up after iTunes sync'd my events to iPhone.

I dismissed all of them, all seems OK now, but weirdness.

We can all guess by until the 7th, by Apple is one of those mischievous companies who don't inform their customers of much until the release day, software updates, etc. When they say strictly Mac-related, isn't their always one of those famous saying by Steve, "By the way, one more thing..."

Last years update on the 6Gen iPod was a joke, admit it. More battery life, brighter display, thats what Apple wasted a YEAR on coming up with? They should invest more time and money into the iPod, without that little sucker, there would be no Apple Inc. The iPod saved the company, so why not help out the people who bought the product who saved your company by making a watered down iPhone as an iPod?

34MB of bug fixes? There's obviously something more in there.:apple:

With Apple's updates, they release the whole application again (I'm pretty sure). So It's not 34MB of bug fixes, but the whole application.

Somebody correct me if I am wrong here...

i just hope i wont have to restore my iphone to factory setting again because of the updates that i did. Im not going to plug it in untill i have to, just to be safe, i dont feel like redoing all my hacks at the moment. I was looking around on this forum while the update was being downloaded and my macbook crashed for the first time i think. When i restarted it i got the message that os accidently shut down or something like that. Very weird. Now safari wont launch and it wont let me check for updates. I dont know if the update got downloaded or what. weird this is the first time this has ever happened to me.

I really doubt it would restore your phone. I mean the update was just for stability. Then again my iPhone isn't hacked up and I haven't tested it.

Anyway, I need to give those hacks a try ... I'm just scared.

I first posted this on the iPhone forum and then thought maybe I should of posted here. So this is cross posted.

I just upgraded my iTunes to 7.3.2.6 and after tried to sync my iPhone with Yahoo Address Book and it failed. No other problems, just Yahoo Address Book. Not sure it has anything to do with the upgrade but I have "never" had a problem before with this. I have tried a number of times with no luck.

".... unknown error occured (4). Please try again later."

Anybody else using Yahoo Address Book with iPhone Contacts?

wtf is this?

I get this error since the 7.3.2.6 update. I have repaired permissions before AND after installing the update.

I can burn CDs using Toast, so it is not the burner which is at fault, but iTunes.

Any suggestions (and HOW-TO) on fixing this (or reverting to iTunes 7.3.1.x if that is my only option)?

Thanks :)

I don't understand WHY any of you would ever perform the hacks that you have on a 500 or 600 dollar phone just so you can change your icons around or have a couple of ring tones. The iPhone is not made for it, just be patient and wait for updates or just enjoy the phone for what it is. I have been reading all of these posts with everyone complaining how the hacks messed up their phone and then everyone wants to do it all over again. It's just stupid. Stop the madness or perform the hacks and stop complaining when updates come out and your phone is fried.

True, there is some risk, but I don't think anyone has reported a bricked iPhone because of it. Also, this was the first software/firmware update for it and no one really knew what to expect. Some people (like me) went in blindly only to find I had to restore everything after I had reinstalled XP on my laptop (nearly lost contacts but had the file somewhere). But now that we know what happens, people will sync contacts and make sure they have everything they need ready. Plus I think now we've downloaded the iPhone restore image we won't have to again, but I could be wrong.

It's not like people are trying to swap the EDGE radio for a 3G one or anything (that I know of...)

painless update. maybe it happened very fast and i missed it, but i didn't even see the "updating library" dialog and progress bar that i seem to remember from all the recent itunes updates.

i was having an issue since getting a macbook pro where my itunes playback would skip pretty severely whenever my display went to sleep (not the end of the world but kind of annoying); not 100% sure, but i can't get it to reproduce this bug now, so maybe it's been fixed! i hadn't heard about other people experiencing this issue in the first place, though.

Until I see a list of fixes, I'm not bothering with this release; I already learned that lesson the hard way.

Until the other day I was running 7.3.1.
Tried doing an incremental backup of my library to dvd. Asks for a blank disk, I insert a blank dvd. Reads it, works for 15-20mins on getting the songs to burn (while leaving the ones already backed up). Spits out the dvd saying it's not blank; "insert blank disk". I pick another one from the spindle and put it in. 10 seconds later, spits it out. "Insert blank disk." Tried 6 different disks, ALL BLANK, finally I just quit the backup.

[Before someone says it - no it's not a problem with the media (Ritek), my burner (LiteOn), my computer, the OS (XP...keep the MS jokes to yourselves please :p)...nothing. It's an iTunes problem that is well documented on both Windows and Mac. Several threads, in fact, on Apple's support boards, actually. :)]

After doing some google searching, I found out this is a problem with 7.3.1 and dvds. Apparently it will backup ok to cd, but not dvds. 7.2 doesn't have this problem, so I found a 7.2 installer on Filehippo...uninstall 7.3.1, install 7.2, try the backup again - no problem. Worked the first time around, took 3 dvds. (The same 3 from the top that 7.3.1 didn't take. :D)

Hopefully they fixed this issue with this update to 7.3.2 but without seeing a bug fix that specifies that its fixed - I won't bother with the update. :o

i think the ipod inadvertently saved apple, somewhere i read that apple gains a lot of its switching to computers from people using and knowing about the ipod/itunes store.

An operating system is just an application that runs straight off the hardware. Other applications run inside it. Not that much different.

In fact you can have an application running inside an operating system inside an application inside an operating system inside another operating system inside the BIOS inside the motherboard. My example:

Appleworks > Mac OS 9 > SheepShaver > Win 2k > DOS > BIOS > Motherboard.

It becomes more and more obvious how neglected the Mac users are. The iPhone has taken all Apples time and has made iTunes bloated with stuff that most people do not need. I'm thinking about all the iPhone stuff built in and other sync features not nescessary for what the iTunes app really is all about. This is the 5th update in a very short time. Not very Apple like to neglect their core costumers. Get back on track Apple! Lets see some SOLID software so that we won't have to update the same app so many times in a row.

Apple should also consider to upgrade there windows upgrader... that this is buggy as **.

1. It's always downloading AGAIN and AGAIN if something doesn't work (good for the datatraffic I guess :P).
2. And always download EVERYTHING (QT, QT+IT, Safari even when you only installed safari).
- And how about that I always have to download WHOLE itunes... instead of just the changed files (the whole 30MB, every little update).
3. If connection is lost, you can hit CANCEL... but that will just do nothing but saying 'cancelling....' (for some 5 hours)

I get... Errors occurred while installing updates. If the problem persists, choose Tools > Download Only and try installing manually.

So I end up installing iTunes manually all the time.

Sorry, but you're a little out there. An operating system is software that controls and allocates hardware resources. Windows 2000 runs off the NT kernel, it does not run on top of DOS, and no version of Windows has since 98/Me. And the OS does not run "in" the BIOS either, certainly not if it supports ACPI, in which case the only job of the BIOS on a modern PC is to run the hardware check at POST and begin the boot procedure before handing full control over to the OS.

The hacks are pretty nice though.

As someone who totally respects the iPhone and all that it already did, I think the custom ringtone issue was fairly important so I could have an audible caller ID.

As a guy that doesn't normally hack anything, I found this particular hack to be BEYOND user friendly. If i have to restore my phone every now and then, so be it. No big deal... Really.

What is this iPhone sync to iCal calendar bug you speak of? I had a problem and AppleCare insists it's my data (evidently, my data is so powerful it can cause the iPhone to freeze reproducibly). I ended up having to ditch all data and start all new calendars and then it worked fine. Does this mean I can import all that old data now?

I wager the new i-pod comes out next week, touchscreen and all. If the i-tunes update and the rumors about another touchscreen apple device being developed in tandem with the i-phone doesn't spell out imminent "i-pod update", then I don't know what else does.


I hope you're right, but I'm not holding my breath:

1. September or early October makes sense for a pre-Christmas push.

2. Apple likes to make major inventory changes at the beginning of a quarter -- post-Macworld in January, post-WWDC in July, iPhone beginning of July, pre-Christmas in October, etc. -- to get good quarter-over-quarter comparisons. (That doesn't explain the new iMac coming in the middle of the quarter, but it still seems like a general rule.)

3. There's a promotion on nano right now with the purchase of a Mac, and it ends in late September.

Whenever it comes, I really hope Apple doesn't stiff us with another minor revision. The technology is there from the iPhone, the 6G is ugly, and it's time to get wide!

it seems to me that internet slang is often mixed up somewhere between humor and sneering .. i seem to recall in the old leetspeak argot culture - 31337 (eleet) became 1337 (leet) which gave way to 133t and more recently r337 (if you've got an accent or grew up in a country where your "r" and "l" sounds are interchangable) and now 733t? this looks more like teet and a subtle play on a younger n00b to me .. at some point maybe we should just resort to ascii ..

I'm thinking about all the iPhone stuff built in and other sync features not nescessary for what the iTunes app really is all about.

In case you forgot, iPod (and now iPhone) syncing is what iTunes has always been about. It was created for that specific purpose alone. How easy we forget.

This is the 5th update in a very short time. Not very Apple like to neglect their core costumers.

Soo they should neglect the 3 billion iTunes purchases instead? Apple just released 10.4.10 and now 4.11 is seeded. They have a new OS on the way. They've released security updates regularly for 10.3 and 10.4. I don't see your point.

Sept./Oct.: widescreen iPod: no WiFi, no Safari, 120GB/$399, 60GB/$299; refreshed nano: new colors, 12GB/$199, 6GB/$149; refreshed shuffle: new colors, multiple playlists, $79.

Oct.: Leopard.

Jan.: refreshed :apple:tv, 200GB/$349, 100GB/$249, buy content without computer; iTunes 8 HD; movies on demand, emphasis on "DVD" extras, $4.99/48 hours; iPhone refresh, $549/12GB, $449/6GB. One more thing: MacBook nano: flash HD, always on, no trackpad, MultiTouch display.

No iPhone nano until 2Q or 3Q 2008.

Micro$oft does not like to release patches because the hackers use the patch to figure where the bug is at, then write a hack for it and get all the people that did not patched inmediatly.

Their write up (M$) are more informative, but who knows what they "forgot" to mention in the writeup. Just bacause there is a lot of info there, does not means it is complete, it means they have a heck of a lot of bugs.

Cell phones don't bode well in the washer, either. My sister-in-law has already lost two phones to the sudsy swirler.

By chance have you moved iTunes out of the main /Applications path into a sub-folder? If so, Apple Software Update will not find it. (I have the same problem myself.)

Also for those who may be interested, 7.3.2 does -not- fix the problem with Smart Playlists on the iPhone listing the wrong songs if you do a "recently added", "recently played", "most played" type of list.

Oh well...maybe in 7.3.3...

Tks but no...my iTunes is exactly in my folder Applications; not User/Applications, but Applications...anyone else has the same issue?

A bit boring, but it's always nice to get the notice so I can download the latest update when I get home. For some reason downloading updates is really satisfying, even when there are no visible improvements. Go figure.
It's like taking a good dump.

it seems to me that internet slang is often mixed up somewhere between humor and sneering .. i seem to recall in the old leetspeak argot culture - 31337 (eleet) became 1337 (leet) which gave way to 133t and more recently r337 (if you've got an accent or grew up in a country where your "r" and "l" sounds are interchangable) and now 733t? this looks more like teet and a subtle play on a younger n00b to me .. at some point maybe we should just resort to ascii ..

Personally I blame the constant exposure of the main practitioners' heads to radiation from CRTs... :D

Try removing the battery, and rinsing everything really well (inside as well) with denatured alcohol.

Finally, Apple has fixed the annoying 'Browse' issue in iTunes.

:rolleyes:

Please don't do that again. It's childish and diminishes whatever argument you might have.

Micro$oft does not like to release patches because the hackers use the patch to figure where the bug is at, then write a hack for it and get all the people that did not patched inmediatly.I'm sure that's part of the reason, but they were also pressured by their big customers to have a patching schedule that the customers could plan their deployment and testing after. This should have no influence on Apple's patch writeups though.

Just bacause there is a lot of info there, does not means it is complete, it means they have a heck of a lot of bugs.Yes, quite. And the fact that Apple only gives us half an effing sentence to describe the entire update must surely indicate that it's nigh perfect and bugfree.

You should use Linux, perhaps Fedora Linux. Package updates everyday, pretty much with Fedora.

Yes -- on both my Mac Pro and my MacBook Pro. The update did not appear in Software Update, but was available in iTunes > Check for Updates. Doesn't really matter, since I usually know about updates from MR before I see them in Software Update, but it is a bit odd.

.... Windows 2000 runs off the NT kernel, it does not run on top of DOS,...

It doesn't?!? Why does it look like DOS upon start up? WTF is this "run" option in the start menu?

Can't wait to be able to use Mac OS X.

It's not DOS, its the Windows NT bootloader. Something has to actually start up before the GUI loads.

The run option on the start menu lets you execute any arbitrary executable or command-line application. Just like the "Command Line" application. It isn't dos, it is a command line into NT. Much like OS X has Terminal, which "looks like DOS" it provides an alternative interface to use the system.

A post I made after the last iTunes update:

I listen to my music by first selecting the 'Genre' then the 'Artist' and then the 'Album' in the 'Browse window'.

This has been fine until the 7.0 update, but now if a leave the 'Main Library' window - say to update my Podcasts or to visit the iTunes Store, the 'Artist' and 'Album' sections are no longer selected.

It's not the end of the world, but it is annoying.


This no longer occurs!

The "run" option simply let's you run DOS inside Windows. Even Mac OS Classic was/is just running inside OS X. If you start OS X in single user mode (cmd-S during start-up), it also "looks like DOS".

Believe me, Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME all ran on top of DOS. Windows NT was developed alongside the latest of these DOS-based version. Even today, if you start up Windows 2000, it will say something like 'Based on NT Technology'. Going to the NT kernel and leaving DOS behind was a big step for Microsoft.

Thank you Apple for forcing me to take the upgrade last night. Now when I opened up iTunes today, it not only "unrecognized" my iPod, half of my songs are not found because iTUNES WON'T LOOK AT THE LIBRARY THE PREFERENCE IS POINTED TO! It is assuming the library is in Documents/Music on my C Drive. But my official Documents file is on my H drive, always has been as is my iTunes library. Why it knows half are there and can't find the other half, who knows.

So where do I send my bill for helping the iTunes that Apple screwed up "find" the 3000 items it can't locate? Or will Apple fix this ASAP? (Not holding my breath)

Seems like a bunch of people have been hit with a screwed up update to iTunes as I have looked on Apple's site, but Apple is of course silent on the issue. Apple needs to do some basic QC before releasing stuff as well as being forward about their patches.

Trying to hide their inadequate programming is pathetic and has screwed up my music library. Thanks for nuttin' Jobs.
