Help with itunes and quick time

IT wont let me open my itunes now i get a pop up saying that my quicktime is to old 7.1 or something which i thought was upto date and it says it requires 7.1-7.3 and to reinstall itunes. So i guess my question is, do i have to unistall my itunes ( will i loose all my songs) or is there an easier way.

let's try swapping out your QuickTime instead.
head into your Add/Remove programs. uninstall QuickTime.
Next, we’ll manually remove any leftover program files and folders.
1. On the Start menu, click My Computer (or double-click My Computer on the Desktop).
2. In My Computer, open Local Disk.
3. Open Program Files.
4. Right-click on the QuickTime folder and click Delete from the shortcut menu.
5. Navigate to C:\Windows\system32\.
6. Remove the files QuickTime.qts and QuicktimeVR.qtx.
7. Restart your computer.
next, we'll get a fresh copy of QuickTime into your PC by doing a repair install of itunes.
switch off antivirus and antispyware applications prior to the repair install.
go into Add/Remove and select itunes. click "Change" and then click "Repair".
if the repair install goes through okay, restart the PC and try launching itunes again. does it launch properly now?

  • ITunes and Quick Time upgrade 9.0.2 error downloading and installing

    This morning I recived notification that there is a new update for iTunes and Quick Time. While downloading and installing this upgrade 9.0.2, I received the following error:
    An error occurred during the installation of assembly "Microsoft.VC80.CRT, version= "8.0.50727.4053" type="win32", publicKey Token="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b", process or Architecture="x86"', please refer to Help and Support for more information. HRESULT: 0x800736B3.
    What the heck does that mean???

    I received the same error and spent roughly an hour and a half troubleshooting with the Apple Customer Support before I was told that it was a Windows or Lenovo manufacturer issue -- something to do with a registry key -- and that this was outside the realm of Apple Customer Support.
    If you are able to resolve it, I would be interested in knowing how.

  • I installed itunes and quick time  but when I try to open itunes I get a message that reads "quicktime failed to initialize (error -2096)"

    I installed itunes and quick time  but when I try to open itunes I get a message that reads "quicktime failed to initialize (error -2096).  I have removed both itunes and quicktime from my computer and re-installed them and I still get the same message.  What do I do to get itunes to work?

    That one is often a compatibility mode problem. Try the following document, only be sure that none of the boxes in the compatibility mode tab are checked (not just the compatibility mode box itself):

  • Help to install iTunes and Quick Time please!

    I really hope you can help me. I have been working my way through this forum for around 5 hours today. I have tried a number of your suggestions and have made some progress.
    - My iTunes hasn't been working for some time. I tried to uninstall it and reinstall a fresh version but it wouldn't uninstall.
    - So following forum advice, I downloaded and ran Windows Install Clean Up and also did a manual deletion exercise. This left a few odd files that wouldn't delete.
    - I have downloaded iTunes 8.2 but it won't install. I get an error message: "error writing to file: c:\programfiles\commonfiles\apple\mobile device support\syncservices\schemas\calendars.syncschema\contents\windows\calendars.ex e Verify that you have access to that directory" and eventually I get a message telling me that iTunes needs Quick Time.
    - I also downloaded the stand alone version of Quick Time. When trying to install it I get the error message "error writing to file:c:\programfiles\quicktime\pictureviewer.resources\ko.1proj\pictureviewerlo calized.dll Verify that you have access to that directory"
    - I can confirm that I am the only user of this computer and I have administrator rights.
    - I have installed the latest Microsoft updates.
    - I have restarted my computer about 3 times, after each major thing I've tried.
    Totally Stuck Now!
    I did read a suggestion about using a Microsoft fix but it involves going into the registry and I don't have the confidence to do that, I don't really know what I'm doing at all, I'm just following my nose!
    When my computer starts up CheckDisk says "correcting error in index $0 16208" and after correcting and sorting it says "an unspecified error occurred".
    Please help!!

    It sounds as though the file referred to in the error message is corrupt and Windows cannot read it.
    Try running a disk check. If it finds and fixes errors, try reininstalling. If not it it doesn't work, go on to the next step.
    Try renaming c:\programfiles\commonfiles\apple\mobile device support\syncservices\schemas\calendars.syncschema\contents\windows\calendars.ex e as ...calendars.old.
    If Windows will not allow that, then rename the containing folder.
    This should allow the install to proceed as it will not see the corrupt file.

  • Final Cut Studio 2 with Leopard and Quick Time 7.3

    I tried to upgrade to Leopard and Quick Time 7.3 early part of November and had numerous issues with Final Cut Pro. I had to revert back to 10.4.10 and quick time 7.2. Based on several postings on the discussion board, many others had the same issues... Is anyone aware if fixes have been implemented that would allow me to upgrade successfully at this time...
    Thanks in advance for your comments/feedback...

    Thanks... That is the steps that I took when I originally tried to upgrade. After talking to Apple back in early November, appeared there was issues with Quick Time 7.3... They recommended that I convert back.. Just wondering if any fixes had been put into place that would allow me to go ahead and upgrade.... Based on your comments, I am assuming that other users are successfully using Leopard and Quick Time 7.3 with Final Cut Pro.... If that is the case, I am not sure why my system will not work properly with QT 7.3.....

  • Is there a problem with the itunes and quick time download pages or is it my internet.

    Is there a problem with the itunes and quicktime download pages or is it just my internet.

    Some more developments ... the issue appears to be browser-specific. I can't see the download controls at the moment in either IE 8 (I'll get your message) or Safari for Windows 5.0.5 (I'll just get the blank box). But I can see the download controls in Firefox 4 and Chrome (whatever version I have of that).
    So it might be worth installing Firefox and seeing if you can get the downloads via that:

  • E and F drives disappear after I install iTunes and Quick Time

    Whenever I install iTunes/Quick Time on my computer, my E and F drives "disappear" and I have no way of accessing them or playing CDs/DVDs. The only way I know how to get them back is to restore my computer to an earlier date. When I do that, I no longer have iTunes/Quick Time on my computer. My computer is an HP Pentium 4 with Windows XP.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can fix this problem? It drives me crazy and I can't update my iPod Shuffle very often because of what I have to go through to get my drives back when I'm done. I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

    First since you have done restores, you need to goto microsofts windows update site and update windows. Then goto the PC makers site and install all updates for your model, especailly BIOs IDE controller and CD/DVD ROM updates.
    After that install itunes.
    Then rightclick "My COmputer" hit Manage>Device manager and see if theres a "Code 41" error message showing beside your CD DVD Drives

  • Can't play HD items on iTunes and Quick Time

    Hi everyone,
    I think I went through all the posts I could find on the subject. If I missed the solution, please forgive me. First time around here.
    Here's the problem:
    Whenever I open a tv show or movie I purchased on iTunes in HD mode, the audio will play just fine. However, the visual will consist of yellow, magenta and green colors and nothing else. Much like having the wrong codec installed. (Note: When the recent Mountain Lion update and iTunes update came out the vidoes played fine - until I rebooted.) All videos worked just fine on my old iMac. I should also note that VLC will show a progress bar, but neither play video nor audio.
    What lead to it:
    I recently got a new iMac and migrated everything from my old iMac to the new one. Everything went just fine, except for the problem mentioned above.
    What I tried up to now:
    - switching to SD (works - but doesn't really solve the problem, does it)
    - creating a new user account without any apps installed on it (still get the same result)
    - rebooting several times, of course
    - finger gymnastics with P+R+cmd+ctrl at start-up
    Basic system:
    27" (mid 2011) iMac, 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB DDR3 RAM, AMD Radeon HD 6970M, OS X 10.8.2, iTunes 10.7, Quick Time 10.2
    Hope one of you guys can think of a solution to this. I'm all out of ideas. There are some suggestions and  good insights in this thread
    If a forum member gives an answer you like, please give them the Kudos they deserve. If a member gives you the answer to your question, mark the answer as Accepted Solution so others can see the solution to the problem. Thanks !!!

  • Need help with Itunes and IPod Shuffle

    I have the latest updates for both Itunes and the IPod Shuffle. I have Itunes on two different PCs, one for the wife and one for myself. I got a new Nano and gave my wife the Shuffle I had and she gave her shuffle to a friend. Everything has worked just fine in the past. When she plugged in my shuffle it asked if she wanted to sync to this PCs library and she said yes. Everything went fine except that no files will copy to the shuffle. It seems to take a VERY long time to sync as well. I tried dragging a song or a playlist but it just sits in sync mode for a long time and then when it's done there is no music on the shuffle. I don't understand the problem. When I attach the shuffle to my PC it asks if I want to sync to the library and everything works, files transfer, no problem. Putting back on her PC and going through the resync business again results in the same situation. Help!

  • New Front Row, iTunes and Quick Time updater

    For user that not aware, there is a new updater for mac which is Front Row 1.3, iTunes 7.0.0 and QuickTime 7.1.3.
    For my self, I think the iTunes 7.0.0 is excellent, I found it helpfull to categorize the video and TVshow that I have into a big art image with all the titles next to it instead of showing all as list or as icon in previous iTunes. Not to mention that we can buy a full length dvd movie ($9.99).
    I wish the price is the same as songs or regular video ($2.99)
    Check the link above or use your software updater on your apple menu bar.
    Good Luck and Enjoy.

    The Updates
    A. iTunes
    I like the new iTunes a lot, but my major problem is that my music videos (from iTunes store and other sources) are in my music library! When I am typing or on the internet, iTunes is in mini player mode. All of a sudden a video window pops up and starts playing (what else) a video. I don't like that. The music and video mix transfers over to the iPod also. The main reason I don't like it (on the iPod) is because the audio for a video is different than the original song. An example of this is, Don't Speak -by: No doubt.
    B. Front Row
    I always liked Front Row and don't really notice any changes to it. It used to be a little slow on the exit, but after the update works like normal again. Therefore, I assume the update for Front Row was for the inner workings of the application. No complaints here.
    C. Quick Time
    I don't really use Quick Time. I do most of my video watching in iTunes of Front Row because I don't have to pay Apple to watch stuff full screen with those applications. Although, most of my videos are in Quick Time format because it takes anywhere from two (2) too thirty (30) seconds for Front Row to load Windows Media Video files from my external HD. (I guess that IS a complaint for Front Row, but don't tell him. ^_^)
    D. iPod v. 1.2
    Nice! 1) I can adjust the screen brightness (to conserve battery life). 2) Quick scroll thinggy (I lack the technical jargon to describe it). 3) Screen has a little brightness while it's connected to my computer. 'Nuf said.
    E. Summary
    I update anything Apple tells me to. But I am having some regrets about iTunes. Nothing that is going to make me uninstall iTunes and reinstall it from a CD (say... the CD that came with my iPod). I have sent a suggestion to Apple, so if you don't like the way things are, I suggest you do the same because posting here will do little to get it fixed. To do it, go to the menu bar while in iTunes and click:
    iTunes>Provide iTunes feedback
    It should be something similar in Windows, if any of you guys and gals are reading this. Everything else is fine.

  • ITunes and Quick Time is not functioning so I cant use my new iPod!

    My iTunes won't work.
    I've installed and reinstalled it a few times and it just wont work therefore I cant use my ipod. I have also tried opening the Quick Time Player and my pc went crazy. It wouldn't open either.
    Is there anyway I can transfer songs and such to my ipod without using iTunes or is there any other advice please.

    You can try the direct download link from Apple.

  • Fatal error when I open Itunes and Quick time.

    EventType : BEX P1 : QuickTimePlayer.exe P2 : P3 : 47edaedf
    P4 : QuickTimePlayer.exe P5 : P6 : 47edaedf P7 : 0000130d
    P8 : c0000409 P9 : 00000000
    cant uninstall quick time gives fatal error, stems from same error when I try to open Itunes.

    Checking on a possible cause of similar symptoms. Have you ever install an ACE or K-Lite Mega Codec pack, a copy of QT Alternative or QT Lite, or a copy of Storm Codec on that PC?
    (Checking on this because those programs, and some others, can install "QuickTime" componentry on the PC that can break a copy of the QuickTime on the PC, and as a consequence break iTunes. The "fatal error" when attempting to uninstall QuickTime is often a symptom of that, too.)

  • Help with itunes and ipod

    I want to copy some songs from my ipod to my pc, but I don`t know how to do it.
    My ipod isn't syncronized with my library and I don't know which other way to do it.
    I just downloaded iTunes 7, but I think there area few bugs.
    The PREFERENCE window is way to big and I can't save hte changes.
    please, if anyone can help me!

    "I want to copy some songs from my ipod to my pc, but I don`t know how to do it."
    If you have any iTMS purchases the transfer of purchased content from the iPod to authorised computers has been introduced with iTunes 7. A paragraph on it has been added to this article: Transfer iTunes Store purchases using iPod
    The transfer of non iTMS content such as songs imported from CD is designed by default to be one way from iTunes to iPod. However there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod, this is just a selection. Have a look at the web pages and documentation for these, they are generally quite straightforward. You can read reviews of some of them here: Wired News - Rescue Your Stranded Tunes

  • Help with Itunes and my 1st gen. Ipad

    Let's just say 1st of all that I have learned a a very big lesson about running programs from an external hard drive.  I have Itunes set to run from my external and I am having a problem with it being corrupt and that is another issue that I am getting fixed.  Anyways I uninstalled Itunes and re-installed it to my hard (C:)drive.  When I go to plug my Ipad in I keep getting an error message of Itunes library .itl cannot be read, created by newer Itunes version.  I uninstalled Itunes again and went back to download an older version.  I got the same error.  Does anyone happen to know what I can do to get my Ipad to work with Itunes again. I am running Win 8 64 bit. on my laptop.
    Thanks for the help!!

    Hello casinojen,
    I would be concerned as well if my iPad was not recognized by iTunes.  Thank you for providing all the information with the steps you took in regards to this issue.  I found an article with a few more steps you can take (you can skip the steps you have already taken):

    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
