To run Windows programs you need to use Wine.

There is little chance that iTunes will work though. Use Rhythmbox or
Amarok, which are equivalent.

You need to use an old version of iTunes. Get one from .I read that the latest version which works is Version 7. Of course, you need to have WINE installed and the "graphic front end", which may be more than that, PlayOnLinux will make it easier, or even get software working which wouldn't otherwise work. I've installed iTunes 7 and it runs, but it can't rip CDs and some of the radio stations don't work. Don't update iTunes when requested to, because the update won't run under Linux. Perhaps someone would like to check which is the latest version that runs.

As for your specific error message, it doesn't apply here, but I had one like that when trying to unzip an audio edition of the Magazine of Science Fiction & Fantasy a few months ago. The solution was to use another program to unzip it.

Can you help with this problem?
