    For some reason iTunes has been crash happy for the past few days. It even caused my first Kernal Panic. :eek: The only thing I've installed recently are the updated iMove and iPhoto.

    What should my first diagnostic/repair steps be for fixing iTunes?

    First I would check that your OS X boot partition (or hard disk) isn't full or running out of space. I would also make sure you've got the latest version of iTunes (v3.0.1)

    Are there any specific apps or processes running when it crashes?

    I have 3gig + left on the partition OS X is on, and 30 or 40 gigs left on the partition I store my mp3's on. I've got iTunes 3.0.1 and sometimes it crashes when it's the only thing running. At first I though it might be some odd iTunes/FCP combo causing the crash, but itunes has crashed when FCP wasn't running. It seems pretty random.

    Very Strange

    The only other things I can suggest trying are using the Apple Repair Permissions thingy (sorry I don't quite remember its name but it should be around in apple support) and deleting iTunes with all its preferences/databases. You'll have to recreate all your playlists and ratings though :(

    But maybe it is something to do with your recent installs - As they both integrate with iTunes now maybe they're causing problems?
