6.0.2/6.0.3 Crashing when playing any audio file.

Time:October 11
Advertisement
Hi Folks,
I've had this problem since 6.0.2 and upgraded to 6.0.3 last night hoping it would fix the issue but it hasn't.
Whenever I try to play a song in my library or playlists iTunes unexpectedly quits.
I have tried deleteing all preferences. Remove all receipts and reinstalled 6.0.1.
6.0.1 doesn't quit, but I've had real issues with synchronisation of my iPod Nano since all this took place. I don't know if these issues are connected. iTunes freezes on certain songs when syncronising the Nano and just hangs there, it won't unfreeze or force quit unless I disconnect the Nano. In manual mode the Nano seems be more reliable but although I can add playlists or tracks, removing them doesn't update the disk space, so effectively if I empty the Nano manually and update it still reports itself as full.
I've tried a couple of disk utilities on both the startup disk and the nano, nothing to report. I've tried resetting the Nano, still no change.
Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated. Up until this I'd been using iTunes from it's outset (from before it was even iTunes in fact) without and real problems.

Same problem over here. 6.0.4 still doesn't solve the problem.
Deleted the prefs file com.apple.iTunes.plist. On startup iTunes updates the library file, but crashes halfway through.
Downgraded to 6.0 again, as this is the last working version for me.
I keep reporting to Apple and hope that they will eventually fix the problem (I had the problem with 4.0 as wel if I recall correctly, and with 4.0.1 it had been resolved).
