    Well, bit the bullet and went to itunes 9 when my 5g nano showed up......big big mistake.

    It's killing me. Looking to see if anyone has some ideas.

    Basically, I can sync my music, podcasts, images, no problem. I click the movies button, and the whole thing messes on itself then dies. Tried manual sync, tried uninstalling, reinstalling, ect.

    It's my media box. Only PC i have left. Runs XP, worked great with iTunes 8.x with the iphone, touches, ect, but this is just driving me up the wall!

    Anyone with some ideas?

    I've had iTunes 9 for OS X crash 4 times so far. I've never had an iTunes crash on OS X before.

    The link supplied is for Windoze Xtra Pain.

    No crashes yet for me. I have 3 different libraries an three different macs and no problems so far. 100GB library on an iMac with Leopard, 70 GB library on a mini with Leopard, and a Macbook with Snow Leopard with a small library. I tried using most features on each and it's been smooth so far.

    no crashes for me either. I'm still on leopard, and it's worked fine on my macbook and my ancient imac. I LOVE home sharing! finally a fix for one library on multi computers! :D

    Itunes Crashes

    Same here.

    I had clean installed Snow Leopard on MBP 13", and then upgraded to iTunes 9. Ever since that, I've been experiencing iTunes 9 crashes every once in while I click the tabs in iTunes store.

    Any idea?

    It's been behaving better since i turned off the new library sharing stuff.

    Go figure.

    Probably gonna wait til iTunes 9.0.1 comes which should fix the bugs hopefully.

    Crashed on OSX 10.6. One of my purchases didn't download, isn't showing up in available downloads, and is shown as purchased in my account history. WTF.

    Calling Apple about this tomorrow. This is BS that it won't let me download something I purchased without rebuying it.

    EDIT: I found that it downloaded it, but never added it to the library. Way to fail Apple with 9.0. Slow, buggy, and crashtastic!

    I can get it to crash on 10.6.1 and copying ~3 iTunes / App Store links but it doesn't seems to happen with the x64 iTunes and my x64 Vista machine at work.

    From what I've heard, it seems to be involved with the new iTunes / App Store.

    :mad: I've been using iTunes since 1.0 and this is the first time I've had it crash. No matter what I play, it crashes. In the store, playing music, etc. Aghhh. On my G4 quicksilver I run 1.0 and on my PB G4 is where my problem lays. :(

    Hi! New poster, long time reader here. :)

    I've had absolutely no trouble with iTunes 9; in fact I like it a lot better than the old version, particularly the new iTunes Store. I downloaded 3 podcasts last night with no issues. I'm using OS 10.5.8 FWIW.

    iTunes 9.1.1 (12) frequent crashes

    Just coming onto this thread; mostly I think during movie playback of titles I own via HB I play in background; so I use VLC until this issue gets resolved.
