Does the new ipod touch require that you use iTunes 8 or can i stick with iTunes 7?
8 I believe
not sure, but why wouldn't you just upgrade, itunes 8 is great
I'm pretty sure, but not certain, that I had to upgrade to 8 when I connected my 2g ipod touch.
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.
is anyone using the ipod touch 2g with an older version of itunes?
Try iTunes 8 and use Time Machine to restore if anything goes wrong.
The tech specs product page or the touch lists itunes 8 or later as required.
chillax! nothing will happen when you update from a previous version of itunes. iv done it several times and nothing has happened.
lol, who the hell has 400GB of "legal" music...unless of course they're all encoded in Apple lossless or something.
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.
Try disabling the arrows that link to the store then, stainlessliquid. See how far you get.
400gb? wow! i have less than 30gb of everything on my computer!
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
Google "disable itunes arrows." I found info on how to do it for both Mac and Windows.
Yeah I know, but why should I have to run a command line in order to do something 7.7.1 did? Why did they remove that option?
well actually the iphone apps not installing on ipod feature is forced wich is annoying cuz most work w/ the mic
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)
