How to Fix an iTunes Appcrash

What’s worse than a car crash? An iTunes Appcrash! Well, not really but iTunes crashing means not being able to transfer files between your Apple gadget and your laptop (desktop, Mac, etc…). I stumbled upon this fix/solution by accident and it worked. I followed all the recommended resolutions from the Apple support site but they did not work. That’s when I decided to try other solutions that might work.

Before outlining the steps I did, here are some pertinent information:

  • I am using iTunes
  • I am running Quicktime 6.x
  • I had an Appcrash
  • The crash was on module quicktime.qts
  • I am also running a Windows 7 64-bit with 4GB of RAM.
  • I am trying to sync my iPad 2 and my laptop

So here’s what I did…

I installed the latest version of Quicktime (version 7)!

And when I did, I tried to open iTunes again and the crash never came. Problem fixed!

I’m sure there are other reasons why iTunes would crash but I hope anyone else having this problem would read this post and try out this solution. If it works then good for you 🙂
