    Anyone else experiencing this?

    iTunes attempts to contact the Genius servers on launch and it crashes. I've tried everything I can think of--trashed prefs, restored library to pre-10.5 via time Machine, deleted genius.itdb and extras.itdb files. Nothing works.

    It works fine in another account, so it's something with my library.

    CD track selection crash.

    Not sure it's your account . . . but then again what do I know.

    Here is what happened to me.

    I had it crash after inserting a CD, not ripping it, playing track 1 and then interrupting playback by clicking on track 2.

    Kaboom. Crashed and offered me a bug report to fill out. Seemed OK on restart.

    I am having the same issue - the apple ID account works fine from another computer, so it's not the account itself. Something about this instance of it. Any ideas?

    Turn off Network Connection
    Start iTunes, ignore complaints about being unable to connect to store.
    Turn off Genius
    Close iTunes.
    Reopen iTunes
    Turn on Network Connection
