    If I delete iTunes and reinstall it, will all of my music be okay?

    Yes

    Hello Mr. Adaway,
    Yes, your music will remain fine, along with games, videos and podcasts as they are stored in a seperate folder from the iTunes application.

    P.S. What is the problem with iTunes if you have to uninstall it?

    Well, it's really my iPod that's the problem.
    It just locks up sometimes on the Apple screen and NOTHING helps it. Resets, restores, nothing.

    Last friday I believe, I called Apple about it, and of course the error code that I was getting was still a mystery to them.
    So I suggested that I just delete and reinstall (this was on my PC, where no music exists) and that fixed it. I talked to some specialist and he was very excited that it fixed it and from then on, that's what they have been telling everybody to do. But it just happened again, so on tuesday (if I don't buy the new iPod Touch) I'm just going to purchase Apple Care for it and send it in.
    But I'm on my computer that has all of my music on it, so to fix it, I have to delete and reinstall and I was just worried about the hundreds of dollars that went into getting my library set up!

    Very helpful indeed!
    Though I REALLY wish that your edit when you put the directions for the Mac would have gone to use. :(
    I'm using vista currently. :eek:

    Just waiting to drop that 1500 bucks that is located in my savings on a nice, new, shiny MacBook when they are updated.
    Seems like it's taking forever when I'm stuck with the computer I currently have.

    Not To Worry

    Oh, don't worry, there are lots of iPod users with PCs. Including myself! 2 years ago I purchased a Toshiba Satellite L35 laptop for $499 and love it. I wanted a laptop and couldn't see myself spending $1099 for a MacBook although they are wonderful. My laptop came with a rebate that allowed me get a free Vista upgrade CD. Well, I installed Vista and uninstalled it as quick as I installed it. My laptop was a "Vista Capable" laptop so that explains why it didn't work as well as it could have. But Windows XP SP3 works just fine for me, although everytime I walk into an Apple Store it's card not to want to put a MacBook on a credit card!

    Same story for me! Though I kind of liked vista at first, so I left it. A month later, I had TONS of regrets. :eek:

    I really wish I still had XP on it, but I'll be fine for another month.

    The thing that I regret even more, is that if I spent $100 more, I could have had a MacBook. Though, this computer was a gift, so I was grateful none the less. It's beginning to see it's last days for the type of stuff I do, and these MacBook updates couldn't have came at a better time.

    Glad to hear you enjoy your computer still!

    Yes

    Yes, I am enjoying my computer. My last computer was an iMac G3 400 DV that I purchased in 2000 and I kept it up until two years ago when I got my Toshiba which was my first laptop. Boy, that iMac was a work horse. The only reason I had to get a new computer is because the 400 MHZ processor wasn't cutting it in the year 2006!
