iTunes Released

UPDATE 9/28/05!!!! A re-ran the installer, ran REPAIR, and the issues I was having have cleared up. Truly, truly bizarre.

Apple has released an update to iTunes (full install + Quicktime) (or Update Only here) this morning, which is supposed to fix some of the issues people have been having with iTunes 5.

Hmm… encountered a couple of issues while installing this update. You may want to hold off.

  1. Got an error that my CD and DVD Burning Drivers are missing, due to the fact that I might have other burning software on my computer. That’s odd.
  2. iTunes made me close out AOL Instant Messenger and a Konfabulator Weather widget to install.

The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes.

Okay, if you say so. Reinstalling…

Hmm, still getting the CD/DVD Driver error. Nothing’s changed on my computer since installing 5.0. Downgrading doesn’t work either. Crap. I’ll have to forgo CD Burning til Apple issues an update, I suppose. This sucks. Not happy. This is the first time I’ve had issues with an iTunes install.
