September 11, 2008 Apple Inc.'s latest version of iTunes crashes Windows Vista when an iPod or iPhone is connected to the PC, scores of users have reported on Apple's support forum. As soon as an iPod or iPhone is plugged into the PC, Vista crashes and shows the "blue screen of death" (BSOD), the critical error screen on a blue background that requires a reboot to recover, users said. The errors began showing up immediately after updating iTunes to Version 8.0, which Apple released Tuesday as part of its iPod refresh.

What on earth is iTunes up to that it would be affected by the presense of a printer?

I read part of the article and it appears either the driver that Apple shipped with V 8.0 is either broken or is having a conflict with one of Vista's other drivers.

I was thinking about purchasing Vista so I talked to a buddy of mine who just bought a computer and lap top with Vista installed, he said if I were going to do it would probably be best if I upgraded all my peripherals to avoid any conflicts or issues.

Doesn't sound worth it to me.

Your friend has no idea what he is talking about. No offense, but you don't need to upgrade any peripheral.

It definitely appears a large majority of people having iPhone/iTunes issues are running Vista... just saying.

Why not buy a mac Tug?

It seems like there is a new version of iTunes today (8.0.1). I wonder if this new version may have fixed that problem? As the PC does require a reboot after installation. iTunes never used to ask for a reboot before.

Yeah it's actually been out since 10/02. I always advise to get your updates especially if you're experiencing issues with a particular firmware.

Personally I've not had the BSOD with the iTunes issue. Touch wood I won't in the future either. I have my printer connected to my wireless router, so that could be why I've not experienced this issue. Plus my webcam is Creative and not Logitech. Seems like the major issues have been with HP printers & Logitech webcams.

No offense taken Ravman :)

My buddy is one of those kind of guys who when he spends buys the best that money can buy which is something I just cant afford to do. As far as Vista is concerned I have heard it has a lot of compatibility issues and with the economy being as bad as it is I think it's going to be awhile before I spend my hard earned money on software.

Sorry for straying off topic.

I can understand that. Things suck out there right now. Let's hope the shops have good thanks giving sales next month. I heard it's the best time to snap up bargains!

Vista did have driver issues when it first came out. I had a few peripherals that just didn't want to talk to my PC with Vista anymore (bluetooth dongle, display card etc). But 99% of all those troubles are in the past now. Companies have caught up and everything is back to normal, in terms of drivers etc.
