    Hello

    It took me about 5 minutes to locate the 'new post' facility!!

    Anyway I have OSX 10.3.9 - don't laugh, I know it's old. My friend chose to update our iTunes software to a 7. something version only for us to be told after installation that it can't run on 10.3.9. I have spent many many hours searching for iTunes 6 (I am pretty sure that one work on 10.3.9) and I can't find it on the apple website nor anywhere else. (I found an old apps website but the download did not work it refused to be installed - all the versions except 7. something!!!).

    I emailed apple twice and haven't got a reply - even though they have twice sent me a feedback form on how well my problem was tackled...

    What's a girl to do?

    Thanks

    Maya

    Me again.. Now when I go to the above site none of the links to the old versions of iTunes work anymore. It says 'Too many connections'.

    I would really appreciate some help on this!

    Thanks

    This probably won't help with downloading, but this might help you identify what version you want. I used the Internet Archive Wayback Machine to see archived versions of the www.itunes.com URL - perhaps visiting some of these (or a different URL) will allow you to see what the new version was at different points in time...http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.itunes.com.

    This is an interesting tool. For example, it looks like Apple bought the itunes.com domain in 1999 but didn't use the site until Dec 2003 (when the Mini was new).

    Try www.versiondownload.com. Their links are never broken and they seem to have versions of iTunes dating back to who-knows-when.....I forgot to check if they have versions for Mac as well but give it a try!

    Hope this helps.

    You could trying asking around as well.

    I have a few iTunes 5 and 6 CDs knocking around the house from when me and my brother first got iPods.
