Hey guys, I have been trying to deal with this problem for months now and so i need the people who ACTUALLY know what they are talking about rather than the cheap genius bar guys. I have around 40 gigs of tunes, so not that much. Everytime i open itunes now, in the dialogue box at the top it says that it is processing the gapless playback and as soon as this appears and it starts the 1500 something odd songs it completely freezes. I cant force quit or anything i have to hold down the button on my powerbook. I have it plugged in and It sits on my table most of the time as it is far too fragile to take anywhere. I have had the hard drive replaced once already and i fear that it might be happening again as these same symptoms existed previously. I reinstalled itunes and it seemed to make it worse. I dont know what to do and I am so tired of this happening...Please help!!!
