Before we do that, here's a small mp4 file for you to import into y our iTunes. Tell me if it gets imported.

Yes, it goes well with mp3 files.

Only when it comes to video/mp4 i have the problem of adding it into itunes.

I just got my first macbook. I will be running parallel for Windows XP.

I would like to know is there any way to partition a harddisk space which i can store my files centrally where both OS X and windows can read from it?

Hmm... your iTunes.app is confirmed up-the-lorry. Here's how to reinstal it.

1. Download a fresh copy. http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
2. Download and run Onyx's Automation. Follow the instrutions as outlined here, under "Prep the Mac with Onyx".
3. Install iTunes immediately after you booted up in Safe Mode.

There's no need for a seperate partition just to share files; Parallels creates short-cut for you to access your files in your OS X.

You can even drag & drop files between the OSes.

I forgot to add... you can even open your Windows' harddisk directly in OS X without running Parallels and use them.

How cool is that?

Still think you need a seperate partition? I hope not.

Sad to say, after following the above instructions, i still failed to reinstall my itunes proper.

Even when i delete all the itunes folders in library..etc. I still cannot do a full clean reinstallation.

Any guide for me to follow step by step of doing this again? Thanks.....

Hmm... if you can't install an app using Safe Mode, your Mac is pretty screwed. My best advise is to "reformat" and install everything from scratch.

Learn me an alternative Finder application for Tiger, single window file manager that allows me to view multiple (at least 2) directories/drives concurrently? Thanks.
