UPDATE: Using a hardwired connection will resolve. It is a conflict between airport(wireless) and iTunes. See later post. I have been having numerous problems with my new 24" alumiMac - all of which I can trace back to itunes of some sort. I have repaired permissions and have deinstalled any 3rd party software. The following are the issues: iTunes freezes - usually when broswing store - most times can simply quit and restart. WIll freeze any time I click on two items. As in browsing a music selection then clicking tv shows. iTunes freezes and causes entire computer to freeze - turning power on and off "fixes". iTunes will not allow ipods to sync - states there are "too many files open", will only do this after going to iTunes store. iTunes freezes and next application open - ususally safari - but has been word, iPhoto etc - next click on a different app will cause that app to close with an error. Not using iTunes I have no problems. Is anyone else having issues? I also have a macbook that is not displaying any of these issues and is running the same iTunes rev.7.4.1.
