Windows Vista Could Destroy Your iPod

February 7, 2007 by  

Apple is warning its iPod users not to upgrade their PCs to the new Microsoft operating system as it could be damaged by it.

A statement on Apple’s website says the songs purchased from iTunes Store may not play when upgrading to Windows Vista and ejecting an iPod from the Windows System Tray using the Safely Remove Hardware feature may corrupt your iPod.

Despite the release of a new software update for Vista users so that they can play iTunes Store songs Apple continues to recommend that users wait to upgrade Windows until after the next release of iTunes which will be available in the next few weeks.

Some may see this advisory from Apple as a little shady. After all, Apple should have been able to test Vista for weeks before it’s being released. Why wait until the last minute after Vista release to issue such advisory?
