Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation

64 bit vs. 32 bit ipod

When I purchased my IPOD classic i was using a 64 bit PC. I recently purchased a 32 bit pc and thought, great...now the issues with th 64 bit PC are gone as far as my ipod is concerned. WRONGO! Itunes now does not recognize my IPOD even though the PC itself does. It gives me an error stating that itunes did not load the required software to communicate with my IPOD correctly. Everything else in ITUNES works fine. I've gone through the Apple support recommendations with no success. Apple Support was abominable (I believe they just read their own website and have no direct knowledge). I'm thinking that once the ipod used itunes in the 64 bit envvironment, it cannot adjust back to itunes in the 32 bit environment. Any thoughts on fixing this?

    The link appears to be no longer valid. The fix would make sense but unable to access that program through the apple website.

I have toshiba satellite 32-bit , i want to install 64-bit software


Hi,
I'm afraid that you won't be able to run any 64-bit designed software on a 32bit OS. If you can't find a 32-bit version of the software you need, you change your OS or try using a Virtual Machine.
Hope it helped,
Franz

I am trying to install AutoCAD 2004 on my new computer with windows 7 and wont install. Any ideas?


AutoCAD 2004 and Windows 7 are NOT compatible. You will need to upgrade to AutoCAD 2010 either 32-bit or 64-bit. Even with the upgrade, there are known limitation issues.

Hi delta force,

The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer's processor (also called a CPU), handles information. The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system. For gaming, you need to view the system requirements on each game to determine if the software is compatible with 64bit. Not all games will work on a 64 bit processor. Some of the newer more graphic games are compatible with 64bit, but I'd check before you purchase. Also, when you purchase a 64 bit processor machine, you'll find that not all your old software will run under it. You may have some problems and will need to upgrade those versions to thier 64 bit version software, (if available). It's great when it works!

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating,

Thanks Mark

Software incompatibility on my acer aspire6930-6455


Well, we wont know until you try. In my opinion, your 32/64 bit issues will be solved, but you would still have the normal vista/xp compatibility issues.

But that is to be expected, like when we all upgraded from win98 to XP.

So - I would recommend downgrading to Vista 32 bit, or getting the 64bit software version of the programs you want to use.

Good Luck, and let me know what you did, and how it turned out! :)

Sorry, no, you cannot 'convert' the 64 bit system to the 32 bit one. You
have a few options. All of them are coloured by the fact that the OEM
license gives you the right to use just the version you originally
received.

1. Remove the 64 bit version and install the 32 bit. To do this, you
might be able to arrange with the original source to get the 32 bit OEM
version. Alternate, purchase the 32 bit license of the retail version.

If the 64 bit version runs correctly (all the devices/peripherals work
correctly) and the issue is program compatibility:
2. Install the 32 bit in a dual boot arrangement. A Google search will
yield links to various sites with the instructions for doing that. Do
note that you should get the method for installing the 32 bit after the
64 bit
system.


Since you have an OEM version, your first point of contact would be
whoever you got it.
