Vista 64-bit + iTunes + DVDRW = GRRRrrrr - Page 2

The first time you use iTunes check that your cd-burner is detected in iTunes advanced/burning tab. I've found that if you don't open that tab before the first time you try to burn iTunes will crash.
I installed the driver, now iTunes gives me this message:
"iTunes cannot locate the CD Configuration folder, so you cannot import or burn CDs and DVDs. This folder must be in the same directory as iTunes."

Any clue what folder is missing, where it went to, where I find it, and where I should move it to? I'm tired of getting error messages every time I start iTunes.

Thanks!

After searching google for a couple of days, I came across your post. Thank you so much Rogue for your solution and thanks to the original poster for raising this issue. It worked great. I wonder if apple should know about this issue to improve their compatibility with vista 64. I'll see if I find/write something to them. Thanks again.

I have been googling my problem now for over an hour with no luck, so I thought I'd give this a go.

I recently did a clean reformat w/ Vista 64-bit. Perfectly legal copy. Not a hacked beta 2 or anything.

I have an IDE NEC 3550A DVD-rw - a drive which has no know compatibility issues with Vista according to google.

I also have the newest version of iTunes.

However, when I try to burn a music CD, it says "Disc burner or software not found."

Then, I go to preferences, and under burning, it says "No Supported Disc Burners found."

HOWEVER, iTunes will use the drive to rip music. Also, Vista shows the driver as being correctly installed wiht up to date drivers. Moreover, I can still burn when I boot to Windows XP - so I know it's not the drive.

WHat's the problem here? Thanks!
There is also another solution, that IMO is much better.

iTunes 7.3.2 is the last version I know of that was compatible with Vista Ultimate x64. Download it here and everything will be dandy. Just disable automatic updating, which is both unnecessary and annoying.

If it complains about a file that was made by a more recent version of iTunes, then you may need to delete "iTunes Library.itl" and "iTunes Music Library.xml" from "My Music\\iTunes".
