    I have been using atunes for a while, but the recent versions I've had trouble with. On certain albums (and shuffling among albums) I get an error message when advancing to the next song. It says nothing, it's just a pop up that labeled "Error" with an OK button. It's quite annoying. What is causing this?

      Do you use the latest version? (1.9.0 Mistral, not 1.9.0)

      Could you post the content of the aTunes.log file when the error occurs. Thanks.

          Please try to delete the playlist.dat file from the aTunes config directory (e.g. c:\documents and settings\<your name>.aTunes\ with Win XP).
