USB 2 sensitive iTunes connection
After downloading itunes 8 I discovered everytime I connected the iphone to my vista computer it crashed. After much effort after reloading itunes several times I discovered the USB connector of my iphone was NOT a USB 2...once I found the right USB outlet everything worked great. BESURE that the iphone is connected to a USB 2 outlet otherwise it will crash vista big time. The previous version of itunes was not sensitive to this.
