Apple fixes BSOD problem it caused with iTunes 8

I love the advice on this one: "If you installed iTunes 8 on Windows Vista and if you experienced a blue screen of death (BSOD) crash, then you may want this update. Yeah, you might. :)


After installing iTunes 8 for Windows, some users may see a blue screen error message when connecting iPhone or iPod to a Windows Vista computer. In some cases, the computer may immediately restart when connecting iPhone or iPod to the computer.

The quality of Apple's Windows solutions continues to amaze. And not in a good way.

In order to fix this problem, you have to literally uninstall iTunes and the Apple Mobile Device Support software and then download the new version of iTunes 8 that Apple quietly updated last night.


Thanks Howard D.
