    What can I do if I am unable to open iTunes in my Mac?

    I recently upgraded my iPod and after that when I tried to connect to the Mac it asked me to update the iTunes to the latest version, so I did that but now I am not able to open the iTunes in Mac as it says I need 10.6.8 OS version or higher. What should I do now? I donít want to update my Mac OS. Can you please provide me a solution for this? Thanks.

    Dear user,
    as you have updated with new version of itunes, have the following procedure to run the itune application

    go to the program files>itunes>right click on itunes.exe and select"run as administrator".
    you also rename your library from " library.ilt" to "library.old".

    thank you.

    Dear Friend..

    Your query itself says that it is completely a compatibility issue.
    If you come out from this trouble, then only option which left for you is to keep the original settings related to upgrade because once you have updated anything, then the other content also required upgradation.

    Similarly, if you don't want to update your Mac OS then un-upgrade your iPod and iTunes as well.
    This is the only solution.

    Thank you..

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...........


    Yes, After upgrading the ipad it will Definitely ask iTunes for update as it
    requires the version of iTunes in which it works So it is better to install the
    required version of the 'iTunes'.

    Or you may get this problem by missing of any file in your Mac.So try to
    update your iTunes but for this you require a internet connection.

    If update is not possible then do as i say below.

    1.Firstly go to the internet browser.

    2.Then go to the 'Apple Store'.

    3.From there you download the latest version of the 'iTunes'.

    4.After downloading install that in your Mac.

    I hope it will help you.

    All the best............

    Hello Friend

    Before open the ITunes you will install first.

    Open the safari or another web browser.

    Go to the iTunes Download webpage and click the free download button.

    Make sure that the Mac OS X version is selected on that page.
