    Default Sony Vaio and iTunes

    Hi.

    I'm on the verge of shelling out for the Sony Vaio below.

    http://www.dabs.com/ProductView.aspx...1012&InMerch=1

    Does anyone know of any issues of running iTunes on a Vaio with Vista? Do Sony 'force' you into using their own software?

    Thanks.

    well, when vista first released, there was a compatibility issue with vista and itunes. A patch has been issued since then, so no, there will be no issues what so ever with vista, vaio and itunes.

    The current version of iTunes works just fine on my FZ. No worries.

    In concur. The current version of iTunes seems not to cause any problems under Vista.

    iTunes 7.3 works perfectly with Vista.
    Sony won't stop you from using it although they provide their own SonicStage music player.

    The latest iTunes stopped working ...Vista Home Premium and VAIO VGN-CR220E. Was not able to install VAIO updates. The support could not recommend anything helpful.

    Youll have problems out of the box with iTunes on a ARxxS or any XLs with RAID due to a compatibility problem with intels sata driver, playback in quicktime will suck too and youll be told one of your hard drives have failed. Never fear though theres an updated sata driver that fixes that and it doesnt really affect your hard drive. on these models with the updated driver and newest version of itunes along with other vaios itunes runs perfectly i dont think theres any software sony prevents you from installing plus it would be anti-trust

    Hi Forum,
    My first post here.
    I am affraid there is problem with Vaio and iTunes.
    I had no problems with iTunes and hp laptop for 2 years.
    Since I moved to VAIO my iTunes reappears "naked". No music, No playlists!
    I think it is VAIO Media Plus that does it. Every time it starts it destroys iTunes. And I must say I hate it!

    I am not a fan of Apple's soft, but I have iPod Classic 80GB for half a year now, and I got used to it.
    I can restore my playlists from iPod with Sharepod program, but it's boring and time-consuming job.

    Any ideas what to do with it?
