New Windows 7 computer iTunes doesn't see AppleTV

I have done some searching around and it appears that part of the problem may be that a Windows XP computer and iTunes was used to sync with the AppleTV in the past.

Upgraded to Windows 7 computer and now iTunes does not see the AppleTV. Other than the addition of the Windows 7 computer (and deletion of the Windows XP computer from the network), the network has not changed.

Some folks have said you need to reset the AppleTV, setup the network again, and then look in iTunes and it should see it. Others say that hasn't worked for them and Windows 7 still does not see the AppleTV.

Is it necessary to reset and then sync fresh from iTunes to the AppleTV even though all the stuff is already there on AppleTV?

It would seem so since the computer that was used to sync originally is no longer there.

Itunes.exe bad image: softpub.dll is either not designed to run on windows

Every time I try to open itunes I receive the following error message.

"C:\windows\system32\softpub.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact yoursystem administrator or the software vendor for support."

I have tried repairing and reinstalling itunes. I uninstalled every single apple product before retrying the install. I even tried replacing the softpub.

Basically, my only option seems to be restoring my machine to factory settings, which I am really trying to avoid. I'd say screw itunes and get something else but I have an iphone

I am running Windows 7 home premium edition service pack 1 on an Asus PC.

Connecting Windows 7 and iPad 2

I'm not sure whether Windows 7 is the right place to post this because I haven't a clue what the problem is. I am running Windows 7 SP1 64 bit and I'm trying to connect my IPAD to sync with iTunes.

When I plug in the usb line, I hear the sound the pc normally makes when you connect a device. However, the IPAD is not recognized by iTunes nor does Windows recognize the device as a removable disk (as it does with my camera or Walkman).

To solve the problem, I must uninstall iTunes which means I must also uninstall Bonjour Services, Apple software update, Apple Mobile Device Support and Apple Application Support and then re-install of them.

Once that is done, the IPAD and iTunes connect just fine and the sync-ing works as designed. I can then unplug the IPAD and plug it back in as many times as I want or stop and restart iTunes as many times as I want and everything works and connects just fine.

But as soon as I shut my PC down and restart it, the PC no longer recognizes the IPAD until Ido the whole uninstall/reinstall thing.

I don't often update to new releases of iTunes but I would like to connect the iPAD to iTunes more frequently just so I have a recent backup for the IPAD.

I've tried every combination I can think of including, plugging the IPAD in before powering up the PC but I've found nothing to solve the problem. I've tried contacting Apple support thinking that iTunes was the issue but they were useless.

Their response was that this is not happening with iTunes users so it must be a Windows problem. The fact that the IPAD is notbeing recognized by Windows at all makes me think that they may be right.

iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing

Lately every time I open iTunes I get the following warning:

The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes.

Reinstalling iTunes does not get rid of the warning message, but iTunes is working just fine. It appears the message is popping up for no reason. How do I get rid of this?

Moving iTunes to Win7

I want to transfer iTunes from my WinXP. The tech at the Apple store said "Just copy the iTunes folder to your new PC." However, at least one web advice column said to install iTunes on Win7 first, Did the tech assume iTunes was already installed?

Would I be better off using Win7 Easy Transfer, since I have lot's of other stuff to transfer? My Win7 and XP are successfully networked, so Easy Transfer seems like the simplest way to do this, even though it may be slow. I realize that I will have to install all my software on the Win7 PC.

Disk Recording Not Found

When I start up iTunes, I get the error message "The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software.

Please reinstall iTunes." When I try to burn a CD, I get the message "Disk Recording Not Found". I have tried the fixes on the Apple support page, including a repair install, manually putting the driver in the upper filters (GEARAspiWDM) ([LINK] (iTunes for Windows: "Registry settings" warning when opening iTunes)), and evencompletely removing all iTunes related software from my computer and reinstalling everything ([LINK]). However, I still end up with the same error messages and cannot burn CDs.

I ran diagnostics in iTunes, and the bottom part says:
**** CD/DVD Drive Tests ****

No drivers in LowerFilters.
No drivers in UpperFilters.
Failed loading CD / DVD drives, error -43. Try doing a repair install on iTunes from the"Add or Remove Programs" control panel.

since my iPod is older than the support period, Apple refuses to help me without charging me for thirty days of tech support that I don't need.
