Help please! can't import CDs, Itunes stops working and shuts down:(

Hi All, Itunes worked fine up until couple of days ago and now when I insert a CD to import it recognises the CD but when it starts importing, itunes stops working and shuts down immediately. What do I need to do? I read the discussions but couldn't find an answer, most questions were about burning a CD so your help will be highly appreciated...many thanks indeed

First we need to check your precise version number, elektra. In iTunes go "Help > About iTunes" and wait for the version number to scroll up from the bottom of the screen.
Do you see *iTunes 10.1.0.54* ? If so, we need to update you to version 10.1.0.56 . It probably wont appear for you in Apple Software Update if you already have a 10.1.0.54 already installed, so you'll need to download the installer from the Apple Website, as per the following document:
[iTunes 10.1 for Windows: iTunes may stop working and need to quit while importing or syncing audio|http://support.apple.com/kb/TS3591]

  • I upgraded my iPad (3rd gen) to iOS 7.  When I go to iTunes and look at the summary and to the "Apps" list tab, iTunes stops working and shuts down.  What can I do?  I am using a Windows 7 machine.

    Hi thanks for the encouragement.  It's not that the severs are "swamped", iOS 7 has been successfully installed.
    I can't access the apps list in iTunes because it *****
    down.  Its pretty frustrating because many of my apps require me to manually transfer files into iTunes first to view
    them.  Not sure if the servers being swamped is an issue for me, unless they release a bug fix through another version of iTunes.
    Has anyone else had this problem?  My iPad is pretty useless unless I can access my app list in iTunes....

  • 10.5 will not let me add album name. itunes stops working and shuts down

    10.5 will not let me add album name. itunes stops working and shuts down.

    I am having this problem.  At first with the new iPhone 5, and then with the iPad 2.  I am not sure why this is happening. 
    My gut feeling is this is an iO6 issue and here's why -
    The problem mainly occurs with apps.  I have about 150 apps, and when I plugged in the phone, iTunes went to sync all of them.  The process would hang up after about 20 - 30 apps were loaded onto the phone. I could tell where about the process hung up because the apps on the phone showed up as "waiting".
    Then on the iPad 2 I plugged in to sync and saw there was a huge "Other" component in my storage.  It required me to restore the iPad 2 from backup.  With this restore the same issues occurred - putting the apps back on the iPad would hang up.  The videos on the iPad also got stuck - maybe after about 10 hours of videos transfered iTunes crashed.
    My solution has been to soft reset the device, restart Windows, and continue the process until it's complete.  This is remarkably inefficient and time-intensive but everything works with patience.
    I have been wondering if others have had these same problems.

    Tried the un-install and getting the same problem although it takes a bit longer before it crashes this time. Checked the problem report and it looks the same as the previous reports.

  • Firefox "stops working" and shuts down every few mins or less.

    A message pops up that says Firefox has stopped working and to close the program. I can "refresh" to the same spot but it's happening every few mins or less. Any suggestions? It's only been happening for the past 3 days, and like others who's systems are "crashing," it's only been happening since the newest update (18) updated onto my computer. I have already done the Firefox refresh or whatever it was called... The only thing that did was get rid of my extra bookmark toolbar rows...still trying to figure out how to get those back! :(

    We're sorry to hear that your Firefox seems to be crashing. Please perform the following steps to give us a crash report ID that helps us find out more about the cause of the crash.
    #Enter about:crashes in the Firefox location bar (that's where you enter your website names) and press Enter. You should now see a list of submitted crash reports.
    #Copy the most recent 5 report IDs that you see in the crash report window and paste them into your forum response.
    Thanks in advance for your help!
    More information and further troubleshooting steps can be found in the [[Firefox crashes]] article.

  • Photoshop CS5 has stopped working and shuts down

    I purchased Photoshop CS5 in March 2011 and after trying to install software I was unable to do anything in Photoshop without getting the following error message:  "Adobe Photoshop CS5 has stopped working".  A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.  Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.  I was unable to open any psd file or new file withouth that error message.  After you close that error message window, Photoshop immediately closes down. I had someone from Adobe remotely fix this problem.  Now it is appearing again and I am unable to use the program.  I need help with this.  Please.

  • Reader XI stops working and shuts down

    Adobe Reader XI shuts down when trying to open a pdf file. I've already run the clean-up utility and re-installed it but continue to have the same problem.  This is on Windows 7 premium home edition,

    Some things to try...
    Using Windows Explorer navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader, then double-click on Eula.exe and accept the license agreement
    Can you open Adobe Reader by itself?  If so, try disabling Protected Mode [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].
    If you cannot open Reader by itself, try to disable Protected Mode in the registry; download, unzip, then run the attached registry script
    It could even be a malware issue; see http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/reader-core-dll-error.html

  • When using iTunes it stops working and shuts down.

    I am unable to use the program at all, wether I am trying to sync my new iPod Touch or just to play music. The only thing I haven't tried is uninstalling the program and I am holding off on that until I find out if I am going to lose all of my music or not. Somebody, please help me.

    1. Close all apps in the Task Bar. Double-click the Home button and hold apps down for a second or two. Tap the minus sign to close app.
    2. Hold the Sleep and Home button down until you see the Apple Logo.

  • Why does Elements stop working and shut down when I try to use the smartbrush tool?

    I can use the smart brush tool until I need to change the color. The second I try to change the color of my object, I get a pop up window that says there is a problem and windows has to close to the program. I have already restarted my computer and it still does it.

    There is an update available for Elements 13 which has stability fixes. Please install this update and let me know if you are still facing this issue.

  • All of a sudden my iTunes stopped working, and I get the following error messages:   1. the program can't start because MSVCR80.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem   and   2. iTunes was not installed correct

    All of a sudden my iTunes stopped working, and I get the following error messages:
    1. the program can't start because MSVCR80.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem
    and
    2. iTunes was not installed correctly. Please reinstall iTunes. Error 7 (Windows error 126).
    Now I've checked the forums and followed the advice of uninstalling all Apple applications, rebooting, and reinstalling iTunes.
    This is not working. I've tried installing as Administrator but doesn't make any difference at all.
    There must be a way to fix this? I'm not a tech geek but I want to avoid having to take my laptop back to factory settings to sort this out.
    Thanks

    Click here and follow the instructions. You may need to completely remove and reinstall iTunes and all related components, or run the process multiple times; this won't normally affect its library, but that should be backed up anyway.

  • TS1717 I can play audio files in iTunes but I can't play downloaded tv shows or movies.  Everytime I attempt to play them, iTunes stops working and closes.

    I can play audio files in iTunes but I can't play downloaded tv shows or movies.  Everytime I try to play them, iTunes stops working and closes.  Any information will help.

    Is QuickTime installed? If not it might help to install it.
    If so is Direct3D Video Acceleration enabled? If so it might help to disable.
