Upgraded Window Vista-Itune Problem

Please help!!!
I upgraded my OS to Windows Vista and now I cannot access Itunes. I get the following error message "The folder iTunes is on a locked disk or you do not have write permissions for this folder"
Can someone please tell me how to correct this error? I have uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes but not luck.

Try the following steps:
1. Go to Microsoft website to fix install and Unistall problems. Click "Run now" from Fix it to remove all iTunes & related installer files:

  • Inspiron windows vista itunes problems

    1. I recently downloaded the latest itunes. many of my songs recently downloaded are missing and the "purchased" section ceased to exist until i just purchased a song - the only one on the list now. How do i fix this?
    2. I currently have five computers allowed to access my itunes. can i change that since i only use one and most of those other computers do not exist anymore? without losing my current itunes on my current computer? how?
    3. how do i get songs downloaded on past computers but not on my present? those computers are not usuable anymore and i do not have the songs.
    feel free to post or email me if anyone has a solution. Thanks <Edited by Moderator>

    *2. I currently have five computers allowed to access my itunes. can i change that since i only use one and most of those other computers do not exist anymore? without losing my current itunes on my current computer? how?*
    You can't individually deauthorise a 'dead' installation or a computer you no longer have access to. However once you reach the limit of 5 authorisations you have the option to deauthorise them all in one go from your iTunes account and start over. Just note that you can only use this option once a year: About iTunes Music Store Authorisation and Deauthorisation
    *3. how do i get songs downloaded on past computers but not on my present? those computers are not usuable anymore and i do not have the songs.*
    If you didn't make a back-up of your purchases to restore from (as you are advised to do) then I'm sorry to say that the policy on lost purchases is that you have to pay to download them again:
    "Once a Product is purchased and you receive the Product, it is your responsibility not to lose, destroy, or damage the Product, and Apple shall be without liability to you in the event of any loss, destruction, or damage." iTunes Store: Purchased content can be downloaded only once
    You could try contacting the iTunes Music Store Customer Service and you might be able to persuade them to sanction a second free download. There have been occasional reports in the iTunes forum of this happening, however just be aware that they are not under any obligation to do so. If you click on this link you'll be able to email your query: iTMS Customer Service
    If you have an iPod that still has the purchases on it the transfer of purchased content from the iPod to authorised computers was introduced with iTunes 7. You'll find details in this article: Copying iTunes Store purchases from your iPod or iPhone to a computer

  • Since I upgraded Windows Vista to Windows 7 iTunes only works in Windows 7 "Safe Mode".

    Since I upgraded Windows Vista to Windows 7 iTunes only works in Windows 7 "Safe Mode". it will not run in the normal mode. (It ran properly in Vista)  I spent several hours with the Microsoft Technician going through the "1717 suggestions, but to no avail.  On my own, I tried iTunes in Windows 7 "Safe Mode" and was successful!  It ran like a charm.  Unfortunately, I can't run iTunes properly in "Safe Mode"  I have not tried moving one set of the files yet.  But if iTunes works in Safe Mode, do I need to relocate anything or do I need to find what is causing the conflict between Windows 7 and iTunes?

    Which Satellite A205?
    Which Windows 7 (64-bit)? What about the other laptop?
    Which printer model, version, and so forth?

  • Receiveing "Unable to load data from Sync Services" message following iOS 5 Upgrade on iPhone 4 w/ Windows Vista, iTunes 10.5.1.  How do I repair?

    I upgraded my phone to iOS 5 yesterday.  Lost several apps which I restored through my Purchased list in the iStore.  Now when I try to sync the phone using iTunes, I receive an error message advising iTunes is unable to load data from Sync Services, and to disconnect and try again later.  Have tried again later...no difference.  After I acknowledge the error, iTunes continues to say it is Syncing the phone, but it continues to idle.
    I have an iPhone 4.  I am running iTunes on a Windows Vista system.
    What do I need to do to clear this up?


  • Windows Vista Authorization Problem

    I have a problem with Authorization - I recently upgraded my OS to Windows Vista, and when I next went into iTunes it said I needed to authorize my PC which I duly did. Even after successfully authorizing, it won't play my songs. When I try it just asks me to authorize again, which I do - it then tells me I've used 1 out of 5 authorizations (which is right), and then it doesn't play. When I click play, I go through the whole cycle again - it prompts me to authorize, I do, it tells me I've used 1 out of 5, and it doesn't play.
    Is anyone able to help me?
    Many thanks,

    Same problem here. Upgraded to Vista Business. Opened iTunes. Clicked a song that I had purchased previously. It said I needed to authorize the computer. I did. Authorization successful (and my number of auth'd computers went up by one). Clicked the song again. Same dialog box came up, telling me to authorize the computer. I repeated the process to no avail.
    It just won't recognize that it is authorized... songs won't play.

  • Windows Vista, Itunes 10.7, ipod Classic, scan and fix message - why?

    I am trying to connect my wife's Ipod Classic to our Windows Vista computer.  I get a Scan and Fix Message for the Ipod from Windows.  I don't let it scan and click continue.  Itunes is frozen and won't recognize the ipod.  This has happened since upgrading to Itunes 10.7.  Also Itunes is choppy in playing all video content since upgrading to Itunes 10.7.
    I have checked system requirements and driver upgrades.  So far I have no fix.  One site recommended turning off WiFi sync for all devices in Itunes.  But of course the device must be connected, and mine won't connect.  All my itunes video is languishing.  :-(

    Wi-Fi sync won't apply since you have an iPod Classic and it doesn't contain any Wi-Fi hardware.
    To get rid of the Scan and Fix error, see this page: http://www.yourlocaltech.com/resolve-vista-scan-and-fix-error-when-plugging-in-i pod-or-other-devices/
    We'll start there for now.

  • Windows Vista - iTunes not recognising iPod!

    Install an hardware diagnostic tool like Everest home Edit or similar.
    This tool would provide all hardware details about your notebook.
    It would list all devices and chipset name too.
    I think its Intel chipset so you could find the driver on the Intel page


    am using a Dell XPS GEN 5 PC with Windows Vista Premium Edition as the current OS installed. I have latested up date for Itunes and QuickTime (7.1.6) Installed. I have recently bought and downloaded 3 of the Original Star Trek Tv Shows from Itunes. When I try and play one of them, they don't work. The Screen comes up, the show starts, then stops. Sometimes the sound keeps on playing, and then stops. Sometimes it just dosent even come on. I'm guessing (as a highly advanced Windows PC User) That this ia a "video/playback issue, related to a Apple/Vista Compatibility problem. I would like help solving this problem.

    hi slideaway!
    my computer has a right proper meltdown, switching itself off and restarting to a "Windows has recovered from a serious error" sort of message.
    good lord. are you getting any sort of blue screen? if so, what numerical and text codes are you getting with it? (ie 0x[zeros/letters/numbers] CAPSANDUNDERSCORES)
    here's a reference on the sorts of things i'm asking about:
    Troubleshooting Windows Stop Messages
    if you're not seeing a blue screen (or just a flash of one), we can use this technique to make hidden blue screens appear for us:
    1) Open your system control panel (Start->Control Panels->System).
    2) Select the "Advanced" tab.
    3) Click the "Startup and Recover" section's "Settings" button
    4) Verify that under "System Failure" the "Automatically restart" checkbox is not checked.

  • Windows Vista, Itunes 11, and Itunes Store

    Running Windows Vista, and upgraded to Itunes 11.  I am trying to access the Itunes Store, but I am getting an error message (-50) when trying to get into the store.  Going through Windows updates, but still getting the same error message.  Any suggestions?

    Just in case, even though you're running a newer version of iTunes, let's try giving the following document a try:

  • Windows Vista/iTunes will not recognize 3GS

    I've never had this problem before, my iPhone/Laptop has been working fine for the few years that I've had it. Not only will the iPhone not show up on iTunes, but it's not even showing up on My Computer. I've attempted almost every troubleshooting method this site and others have to offer that I've lost count as to how many I've tried. iTunes is updated and I'm running iOS 4.0.1.
    I've disabled firewalls, I've disabled/enabled Apple Mobile Device in the Service menus; I've also gone to the Device Manager menu's but it doesn't even show up. Any help would be appreciated.

    Really guys? Nothing? Since my last post I've tried taking the SIM card out. Done both DFU and Recovery Mode. Tried going back to later version of iTunes and Apple Mobile Device. I've also run Diagonstics and this is what I got. Maybe it'll help.

  • I can't re install iTunes on Windows Vista- itunes error 7/Windows error 5.

    I have updated my computer with Service Pack 1 & 2 for Windows Vista.  For some reason Itunes was deleted and when I try to reinstall it I get a message "iTunes was not installed correctly. Error 7, Windows error 5"  I have done the following to try and remedy this problem:
    1.  Delete all Apple software (to start over and reinstall) - I cannot delete Apple Application Support (Access Denied)
    2.  Repair itunes - Same message
    3.  Logged on as Administrator and tried to take ownership of the file that denied permission - Access Denied
    4.  Tried to install MS .NET Framework 3.5 & 4.0:  3.5 was succesful but 4.0 was not - something went wrong in the installation.
    Please help!

  • Can I upgrade Windows Vista to Windows 8.1 in an existing Boot Camp?

    I have a Full Version 64-bit Windows 8.1 disc and my iMac has the current Version 10.9.1 OS X (Mavericks) installed.
    I already have a Boot Camp partition  of ample size (100GB) with Windows Vista.
    Can I upgrade to Windows 8.1 within my current Boot Camp environment or do I have to completely remove and rebuild my Boot Camp partition and Windows software?

    I've tried both independently.
    The one I upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 had graphics driver problems but I eventually got around them by deleting/installing the drivers in safe mode.
    The Windows 8.1 that I'm currently using installed fine and I've also installed 2 Nvidia driver upgrades direct from Nvidia.
    But as I said earlier, I may well have just got lucky with my hardware. Others have definitely not been as lucky as me.
    It really depends on how much you want to upgrade and what the risk is to you if things don't go well.
    You could lose everything in Windows. I would recommend making an image of your Windows partition (I use Clonezilla Live - which is a bit involved to use, but it works).
    The risk is yours 

  • How I fixed  bug with Windows VISTA & iTunes 7.3 software...

    Okay guys, for a few weeks I've been posting about how my Windows Vista will not work with the iTunes software 7.3.
    Many of you with Vista also have posted the same problems over and over and over with no real answers available to us.
    Well, I have fixed my problem.
    The last straw was last night when I desperately needed to burn something and obviously I couldn't because my CD/DVD Drive was "Missing".
    All this morning I backed up all my files on my computer and reformatted my computer by choosing to set it back to factory settings. After 60 min. of this, after the 3 prior hours, my computer appeared brand new.
    And sure enough, my CD/DVD Drive was there. Next, I went to my Roxio Easy CD Creator and sure enough, it also recognized my Drive as well. I had it burn a file and it worked.
    Next, I went to an older Apple Downloads page, and Downloaded iTunes 6.0. Not anything but the lowest 6.
    And guess what, it works as well with my Vista.
    I loaded a CD Soundtrack, pulled a few tracks into a separate folder then burned them and checked them.
    So, this is one option for you guys out there to try that gets an A+ from me. Yes, it has literally taken me all day and night, but everything is back to working order and I am finally happy!
    Anything to get rid of that nasty Version 7, anything!

  • Windows Vista Quicktime problems

    i have newest quicktime, and i have just bought Windows Vista for my PC. The problem is the picture, usually the HD trailers have amaizng picture when i ran them in quicktime on XP, but when i run the trailers on Vista, the picture is no way near as good as breaks up alot, anyone else have the same problem, or know how to fix it?

    It's possible that Vista includes updated video card drivers.
    Try using the same Control Panel to update yours.
    Apple has already made a small "patch" for iTunes and Vista. Seems like there will many more from thousands of applications in the next few months.
