My new 1 GB shuffle came and my imac doesn't like it. About halfway thru the upload, the itunes crashed(ball of death). I had to force quit the computer as itunes could not be forced to quit. After restart, the computer said that the shuffle was being used by another user on the same computer. I am the only user. I ran disc warrior and also repaired permissions with disk utility, and finally restored the ipod. Repeated the process and the same result (ball of death with about half of the upload complete). I used my other computer to test the shuffle and it did not have any trouble with the upload. Not the shuffle causing the prob..How do I figure out the itunes problem. I would like to throw the itunes app away and reisntall but am weary of losing my music(>30 GB). I had a major directory crash last year and my computer was never really the same. Do I have a corrupt file in itunes that is causing a crash....I also have music in the appropriate music folder that itunes won't recoginze. Sorry so long winded.
