Why is iTunes so slow on PCs (Win XP)?
Not slow on my PC with Windows XP Pro. Maybe it's your computer that is slow. What is slow is my willingness to spend $1.29 per song. Where the heck are all the $.69 songs Apple popped off about?
Well either Windoze = Fail, or
iTunes = Fail.
Take your pick
how much memory are you running with xp? my lil bro has his this old dell laptop with xp and runs 1gb of memory (1.5ghz lol)with no probelms at all, responds fast to itunes. only times it goes a lil slow is when he syncs his ipod but that it
itunes is a bloated piece of crap. its slow on macs too. don't worry about it. or use a better media player (re: any other one)
Is it? Be a bit more specific. What exactly is slow? What do you do, how long does it take, how long do you expect it to take?
If you don't reply, I'll assume you are trolling.
iTunes Store is slow as Hell tonight
Once again I can't blame it on Apple. Fan-boys unite and attack me. That's okay.
iTunes has no control over your internet connection speed.
It's not "our internet", its Itunes. I cant even login or purchase anything tonight
Well I did have 2 threads on why iTunes is slow on Win XP.
My initial thread was regarding the interface itself, but tonight it's with the store. I am trying to buy a song and it just times out--no buy.
fyi: I have 3 gigs of RAM on the XP machine. I love Macs and and saving for a future iMac, but iTunes is slow for me.
It's working fine from here. If it were iTunes, it would affect everyone.
Same here, can't login, can't buy...but I can view the store OK
I cannot authorize my rental to watch right now. I got all my popcorn ready and the authorization screen is just hanging.
Come on Apple
Try logging into your account.
I just did, and downloaded something. Works fine.
I switched to Macs about 3 months ago, and in the past few years of
using iTunes on Windows, it is a bit slower than its counterpart on
OSX. Mainly in the program starting up, and what the guy above said about
synching. Kind of like how Safari loads faster than Firefox on here, is how
iTunes compares to some of the other media playing programs on Windows.
During usage though I never really saw a difference. Snappy, fast etc.
I used Windows Media Player mostly though because it was quicker, and I liked it better. Now on OSX, I like iTunes better.
I have VERY fast internet, and iTunes isn't letting me log in to my account or let me authorize my rental.
Seems like you're the exception right now.
mine seems fine right now as well....sorry guys. maybe just give in a half hour or so.
I'm from Canada and it isn't working....where are you all else living?
You don't know anything about iTunes. Apple has different servers and just becasue you have good service from the store, does not mean that we all do.
Currently in Arizona, iTunes is slow and not working right. I have been an apple user since the IIC and know what I am talking about.
If you want to help others out, keep an open mind and don't be so quick to jude.
I did contact Apple, and they confirmed that they are experiencing some technical issues. They hope to have it up and running soon.
I'm in Orlando - my gf's pissed off - she wants to watch her movie.
I've spoken with Apple as well and they are definitely having issues. Comments made by the previous poster serve no purpose other than to provoke. It's not worth your time and effort.
Glad to hear that you've confirmed my findings.
Im in San Diego - on a fast connection - http://www.speedtest.net/ puts it at 8.8.
I also can not get iTunes to download app updates... its asks for log in and hangs on iTunes waiting for the server to log me into my account.
