Does the new ipod touch require that you use iTunes 8 or can i stick with iTunes 7?

im very happy with itunes 7 and how it functions for me. I dont need all the fancy features and would rather keep it simple how it works for me. i have over 400gb of music and the last thing i want is to risk anything.

It wiped my library, but all I had to do was re-add the iTunes music folder. Easy, but a PITA watching it process all those songs.

Not to mention it forces you to have those arrows that link to the iTunes store now. You use to be able to disable them but I guess Apple knows better than me at what I want.

It's easier than you think. My uncle has been buying CDs since they first started coming up. I wouldn't doubt he would have at least 1TB worth of music if he put them all on the computer. So don't judge.

None of the new features in itunes 8 are forced on you. If you dont use the features then you cant tell the difference. You always have to update itunes for a new ipod.

I listen to a lot of live shows that ive collected over the years. All legal trading, such as grateful dead shows and things of that matter.

Still hoping someone out there is successfully using a version besides iTunes 8 with their new ipod touch

400 gb, wow thats a lot of music ;)

iTunes 8 has some cool new features, like Genius, which works really well.

But of course, you are not forced to use it. Just upgrade, because eventually you will have to upgrade anyway. (and always back up. Twice)
