  1. I'm having serious issues with the new iTunes....I generally enjoy leaving it running in the background of WoW while I play so I can listen to music....with itunes 7 the moment I switch to the wow screen, distortion and skipping occurs to an insane degree....has anybody else had this problem, and do you know of a workaround? the previous itunes was fine..

    thanks for reading,

    I have resolved the problem by switching down a notch from full hardware audio accelaration...

    also I should have mentioned I'm using an XFI Elite Pro

    Is iTunes doing anything specific ? I know when you first install iTunes 7, it will go through the whole library to determin a proper gapless playback setting & that can take quite a lot from the hard drive. It could also be downloading pictures from the iTunes store & iTunes can get quite CPU intensive while downloading from the store (don't ask me why).

    Apparently itunes7 suffers from some serious bugs. See the Techspot article by Justin Mann HERE.
