SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) -- Apple Computer Inc. said this week it had made available an update of its just-introduced iTunes digital music jukebox software for Windows personal computers.
"A few customers reported conflicts with specific PC configurations and we quickly updated the iTunes software in response," Apple said Wednesday.
"iTunes 4.1.1 addresses an isolated incompatibility with Windows 2000 and older third-party CD burning software as well as problems caused by corrupt MP3 files on some users' PCs."
Some of the bugs with the Windows version of the iTunes software, which incorporates access to Apple's online music store, caused some Windows 2000 machines to freeze after installing iTunes, an Apple spokesman said.
In less than a week since its launch, Apple said that more than 1 million Windows computer users had downloaded iTunes. In the same time period, Apple and Windows iTuners user bought more than 1 million songs at a cost of 99 cents each from its online music store, the company said.
Apple said that 14 million songs have been bought and downloaded since the original, Mac-only iTunes software and store launch in April. The latest version of iTunes is available on its Web site.
