I didn't quite find any issues the same as mine when searching.... Lately, the past couple months, while using iTunes (not necessarily playing anything, just simply browsing around), I will get a beachball for about 30 seconds. It will go away for about a minute tops, then come back for about 30 seconds. This behavior is consistent. This is all on my 2.1ghz iMac G5. I have tried repairing permissions still no luck. I didn't have time to worry about it, but now I just got a 2ghz MacBook & transferred my iTunes folder over & it does the SAME thing on this computer too. On the MacBook, I trashed the iTunes Library file & then imported the .xml to rebuild the library file, but still no luck.... I'm not sure what else I can do. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
