Hi I am having trouble installing Itunes 8. I am running Vista Home Premium on a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ140E. When it is almost done installing an error message comes up that says Invalid H:/ drive and my only option is to select ok.  As far as I know I dont even have an H drive. Anything will be helpful. Thanks

Do you have a card reader, USB Flash Drive, or CD-ROM drive that may use that drive letter?  If not, than this would be a work around and not really a solution, but you could connect a USB flash drive to the system and then assign it H as it's drive letter in computer management.  (Even digital cameras can have drive letters when they are connected).

well I tried plugging in my external HD before but that came up as g. I was also hoping that I wouldnt have to plug something in everytime i wanted to run Itunes but i suppose if that was the only solution.. any other ideas?

You may not have to. You said this was a problem during INSTALLATION, so if you provide an H: drive during the install, it may not be needed later.  Like I said, it's a work around (I don't use iTunes, just following logic of other installs).

I C, so other than having something plugged in is there a way to just create one or something to that effect?

Again, this is a work around.  You would plug a flash drive in, or an external hard drive, or a card reader (with card).  You could re-assign your CD/DVD-ROM drive letter (but the CD/DVD drive idea might not work if it wants write access to the drive).
