Apple's new release of iTunes 7 brings along a bunch of new problems

Just days after the release of iTunes version 7, Apple is facing a barrage of user complaints and reports about iTunes being well, not much of an upgrade. Steve Jobs demonstrated the new release at the special conference to an amazed audience on Tuesday, showing off features such as free downloadable album art, new view and sort methods, and gapless playback. Unfortunately, some core features of iTunes have now become broken.

Going through the Apple iTunes forum, some of the problems most frequently reported are:
  • Being unable to playback podcasts
  • Some iPod Nanos not being recognized by the Windows version of iTunes 7
  • iTunes 7 not being able to save preferences
  • Music often becomes jerky or distorted during playback
  • Music becomes distorted when switching to another application in the Mac version
  • iTunes 7 quitting unexpectedly
  • iTunes 7 freezes during library updates
  • Next track is played before current track fully finishes
  • Different types of coded error messages
Unfortunately, the above list doesn't seem to be all the problems that users are experiencing. Many reports say that iTunes 7 is a mishap of a release and that Apple should have done a little more Q&A internally.

Interestingly, Apple has been having a fair number of problems across its entire line of products. From notebooks to software, many of Apple's very own loyal users are beginning to question Apple's ability to deliver quality products -- looking good is one thing, but working well is something else.

I wouldn't have that piece of crap Windows Media Player any ver. if it was the last thing on earth.

Its always been way overly complicated with the buttons and columns and such. iTunes is so much simpler and it is the reason iTunes kicks the crap out of any of the others HAHA!

You want to talk about problems? WMP has som many I can't even list them. Go kiss of Gates rear end some more.

At least WMP can play my music while I'm playing games. iTunes 7 can't.

Wow, clearly you haven't used Windows Media Player. A well trained chimpanzee could probably utilize 90% of it's features.

As for problems, please, start listing problems with WMP 10 or 11. I'd love to read about them.
