Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default Itunes Program Question: old to new

I have been using an older Itunes program to run my ipods with. Recently a friend gave me a nice larger memory ipod I would like to use. Unfortunately It has a newer operating program in it and will not work with the older program I use to load my ipods with on my computer.


The new ipod I was given can not be changed to the older program. From what I've researched you can only load newer programs to it. SO, first of all is that correct? And then secondly, If I download a newer program of Itunes on to my computer will I risk losing all the music I have downloaded through the years? Remember the warnings it gives you, things like "you are removing all your content and replacing it with version such and such."

It seems like a big risk.

I would suggest the newer iTunes will not do any damage. However if you were to revert back to an older version of iTunes, there is a reasonable chance of some kind of unpleasant side-effect as a result.

If you have some kind of back-up storage with sufficient space, it would definitely be worth backing up your iTunes Library first. At least on MacOS, iTunes has one or more hidden settings files which control the library and playlist listings. These are vital to retain (and to backup.)

* I would recommend asking this same question here at iTunes forum https://discussions.apple.com/commun...es_for_windows
I'm also a member but probably haven't posted there for many years. If you still use your old iPod, it would be worth asking about that as well in regards to a newer iTunes version.

Personally I have had the occasional issue with iTunes. But it has been many years since that happened. Issues were either the playlists losing their files and needing to redo them from scratch. Or the entire iTunes Library not loading properly and needing to reload from scratch. But I cannot recall the circumstances upon which these things occurred. During the first decade of the century for a period of time I kept my iTunes library on an external drive for a couple of years, only to discover the drive was buggy from the moment I purchased it. I was having constant issues before I returned to internal HDD storage. Nowadays I have an entire HDD dedicated to iTunes library.

The last iTunes version for Windows is 12. Are you unable to install it on your Windows version?

Edit: I know iTunes for Windows is not quite as good as the Mac version (possibly an understatement.) There were also changes during the versions I did not particularly like. But if you would prefer an older version then possibly https://itunes.en.uptodown.com/windows/versions
It appears both oldversion.com (HTTP ERROR 503) and oldapps.com are no longer. At least I cannot seem to access the sites.

Two links that reference older app sites: https://techdator.net/best-sites-to-...s-of-software/

That sounds about right. Typical Apple way of doing things.

Yes I was just going to post that. Oldapps.com was just working in May I remember. oldversion.com is up now but intermittent. It's Itunes versions of 10.7 and 10.8 and newer will not load onto my computer. I will try that link that you've posted above, thanks. Both of my laptops are 64 bit Win7.

I did not see a Win 7 64-bit version, only Win 8. I tested installing iTunes on Win 8 a few days ago but that was iTunes 12.10.

But, a simple google of iTunes version for Win 7 brought up this: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL2065?locale=en_US (iTunes 12.10.11)

According to the System Requirements, it is or should be compatible with 64-bit Win 7.

I had initial issues opening iTunes on Win 8. Firstly there's a system pop-up that declares it was trying to open or something. I needed to click a small link to see the option to allow it. But still, first attempt at opening failed. So I right-clicked and chose Run as Admin. That worked. Not being very Win savvy I do not know if that was a bad decision or not but at least it opens normally now.

Edit:
I have just tried installing iTunes 12.10.11 on Win 7. Firstly, my version of Firefox would not show the download button at top of page (but I do have a graphics issue with Win 7 VM.) Thus I downloaded on Mac before transferring.
Installing was easier than Win 8. Unlike Win 8 I did not need to choose Run as Admin to open and iTunes opened without issue. But I wonder if this is because I might be using the admin account. Also unlike Win 8, I had a previous version of iTunes on Win 7.

Success! The 10th+ try or so was a success! Thank you LOTR for the help. I am finally replacing the beloved Gen 2 Model A1040. First dock connector Touch Wheel. The thick old heavy ones that you can actually feel and hear the motor spinning inside. These were the ones that you could only charge from the wall AC 110v. The usb port is only used for up/downloading. The batteries are twice as thick as the newer ones and getting hard to find.
