Wil Wheaton: iTunes 7 Ate My Music

Sep 13th, 2006 | By | Category: General

Some users are reporting problems with bugs in iTunes 7.

Actor Wil Wheaton, Wesley Crusher from Star Trek, blogs his woes with the update:

“The new features in iTunes 7 are really cool . . . if only they fucking worked,” writes Wheaton. “I connected my iPod to my laptop just now with manual management turned on, so it doesnt automatically change my settings or music, and suddenly all of my iTunes Music Store purchases vanished.

“I can’t even synch it to the machine I used to buy those songs, because its in for service. It also tells me, when I try to authorize the damn machine, that Ive authorized five of five machines, even though I deauthoried my old laptops when they were sent back for upgrades.”

Apple’s iTunes forums are also jumping with stories like this one from cipher:

“I upgraded to ITunes 7 today and now ALL of the songs in my library are extremely distorted when I play them. There is crackeling, static, skipping, and they sound like garbage. When I play the same songs in a different media player they sound fine.”

    Maybe Crusher should stick to acting.

    No problems here with the upgrade.

    It did exactly the same thing to me–instantly my music collection went from roughly 2400 songs down to 532. Luckily I don’t bother buying music off line, but some of that was rare stuff. And it SAYS I still have all of myalbums, but it only left me two or three songs from each one. What a joke. Apple is almost lucky their crap costs so much, because I’ll still use my iPod once I get reestablished, but I’m DONE with them.

    I didn’t lose any songs that I can tell but … now all of my songs are distorted now as well .

    I found this page looking for a solution to this problem.
