I installed 64-bit Windows 7 Beta on my machine, and up until this point, I’ve loved every minute of it. When I did the clean install, I downloaded the latest 64-bit version of iTunes, and everything seemed to be just fine. My old iPod was on the fritz, and it wasn’t until yesterday that I finally got around to buying a new iPod Nano and trying to sync it. The problems just exploded from there.
Briefly, it’s a Windows 7 problem. Apple iTunes tends to lag behind the curve on new versions of Windows; Vista support took a while, too. And Windows 7 is still in beta. That said, there are a few workarounds. You can try running iTunes within a virtual XP machine, as you suggested. Or check “enable disk use” when your iPod is connected to iTunes; this won’t fix your synching problem, but it will allow you to drag and drop music to your iPod. Other than that, there’s not much you can do but wait.
