    yeah I just went ahead and gave up. I have been unable to get any help from Apple, and have sent two eforms for service. I deleted the program. When the customer service people email me back, I'll get a refund for that song. I only wish I could get a refund for the hours of time I wasted on this.

    I could have read, flew Microsoft Flight Sim, watched 4 movies, etc.

    That's a drop in the bucket compaired to all the time I'd waste trying to maintain my PC (cleaning off malware, defragging, etc).

    I think that's why granite laughed when you said, "I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO SUFFER WITH INCONVENIENCE just because I am a PC user." You could have just as easily directed that complaint toward Microsoft. It comes with the territory.

    But I'm very pleased with Microsoft in general and the support I get from them.

    I was laughing more at his "this is communism!" rant.

    October? Do yourself a favor and buy a Mac. You'll feel better about yourself, life in general, and your fellow man.

    Granite, I would rather not. I like PC's, I like Windows XP, and I buy stuff I like.

    And I have seen both sides of the coin. When I worked at AccuWeather for 4 years I used nothing but Macs because that's all the meteorologists there used. I am familiar with Macs and what they can do. Since I am not into graphics and stuff like that, I see no need.

    Do yourselves a favor; don't bother wasting your time with iTunes.
    I love iTunes!

    I use it daily.

    We do to. I think it's great.

    I was hoping to be able to reap the benefits of drinking pepsi (i'm a coke drinker)

    but I can't, because Itunes sucks and doesn't work.

    Have you considered that it may be operator error?

    I haven't had a single issue with iTunes.

    That sounds like a personal problem.

    I am still fighting with it. And Apple.com has a forum with people discussing problems, and this error -50 problem is the largest thread, and there are no solutions. This is very unprofessional for Apple to do, and if this is not solved soon, I'll spend every bit of spare time I have telling people not to use iTunes.
