    After hours of wrestling to get ITunes to sync with my IPod Shuffle--I was afraid to try my bigger IPods--after the newest, supposedly Vista compatible version of ITunes was downloaded...I found, in a tech forum, someone who always uses Winamp to sync her IPod. So I updated my old version of Winamp and sure enough, that's the ONLY thing that worked for me. I'd done everything from always opening ITunes as an administrator to becoming "owner" of ITunes and setting permissions...all the suggestions I'd gotten here. Now...I can drag and drop, create playlists or set preferences for synching and autofilling with Winamp. One more Vista issue down...how many more to go, I never know 'til I try something new...

    I finally got Winamp to sync, but I have Limewire, and never thought of trying that! Thanks!
