iTunes 7.1.1 on Vista
Apple says its latest iTunes 7.1.1 update, released last Friday, resolves a few more compatibility issues with Microsoft's recently released Windows Vista operating system. The company, which updated its iTunes support document for Vista users, says that iTunes 7.1.1 is "recommended for use with most editions of Windows Vista, however, Apple is actively working with Microsoft to resolve a few remaining known issues." The document notes that that ejecting iPod from Windows Explorer or by using the "Safely Remove Hardware" feature in Windows Vista may corrupt an iPod and that Microsoft is working on a software update for Windows Vista which addresses this compatibility issue.
Apple also notes that iTunes may exhibit graphical visual anomalies that can be resolved by resizing the iTunes window and that Contact Groups from Windows Contacts will not sync with iPod. In addition, the company notes that iTunes remains unsupported on 64 bit editions of Windows, including Windows Vista and Windows XP x64.
