Just installed Itunes 7 on my XP..Now the audio is all distorted. I cant seem to fix it. All else works fine such as Win Media. I have tried every setting imaginable in Quick time Audio Preferences.
Anyone else having audio issues with ITunes 7 and XP?

How to Switch Back to Itunes 6.0.5
by coldfusion1787 / September 16, 2006 4:46 AM PDT

You need to switch back to itunes 6.0.5 if your a windows user. I find it very amusing how CNET is endorsing this obviously buggy version, and it makes me wonder now if those rumors of them being paid to endorse Apple is true.

1. Anyways, this is straight from the itunes forums. Go to My Documents / My Music / iTunes / Previous iTunes Libraries. Sort that folder by "last modified", and pick the most recent file. Copy and paste it to your desktop.

2. Uninstall itunes 7

3. Download itunes 6.0.5 from

4. While waiting for the download, go back to My Documents / My Music / iTunes / and look for a file called "iTunes Library.itl". Copy or remember the name, then delete the file.

5. Take the file you put on your desktop before, rename it to "iTunes Library.itl", and place it into My Documents / My Music / iTunes /

6. Install itunes 6.0.5 and enjoy the nonbuggy software.

I encourage CNET to tag this message to the top of the forums. Especially to prove me wrong that you don't secretly endorse Apple.

I'm glad I'm not the only one noticing

I noticed that when MS put out a buggy patch that we got the fully-loaded Molly-rant.... When Tom installed video software that behaved badly we were treated to the first Tom-rant I've heard (or remember hearing)...

But let Apple put out the buggiest update I've ever seen from any company..... and it breaks the ability of people to hear BOL also.... and we just get some minor comments almost 'in passing'.

They were more angry about not being invited to the Steve Jobs "reality distortion field" event than the (apparently) massive fallout from putting out buggy software.

OK, Apple software is not prone to being hacked or viruses.... but with bugs like these, a virus would just be redundant.

I really don't understand

I have the WORST SYSTEM that you could ever ask for and it works for me no problems.

I have a Compaq Ev0 N600c. With only 386MB ram. Yah, it sucks and I am not sure if it is defectinve ram or the motherboard. If no one belives me about how crappy my system is here is a link:

I have had NO problems whats so ever. I would love to know what just what is causing the issue.
