View Full Version : Incompatibility Apple iTunes 4.7

Anti-virus Software: McAfee Virus Scan Professional
DAEMON Tools Version: 3.47


After upgrading Apple iTunes to version 4.7 it stopped recognizing audio CD-images mounted with Daemon tools. The built-in CD-checker from iTunes reports the drive as incompatible and suggests uninstalling virtual CD drives.

Going back to iTunes 4.6 solves this issue, so I guess they introduced some kind of new "feature". I'd wish for a long term fix, though, to be able to update to future versions of iTunes. Or is there a fix I can apply now? Any suggestions welcome!

If downgrading to iTunes v4.6 solves the issue, you sould contact their support to fix their bug.

I've been wrestling with this for the past couple days, but thought of a fix after reading this thread. I set the device parameters in Daemon Tools to something other then "Generic DVD-Rom" (I used Pioneer DVR-108) and its recognized in iTunes 4.7 now.

1) Right-click daemon tools
2) Virtual CD/DVD Rom
3) Device 0 (or whatever one you are using)
4) Set device parameters

I set the vendor to: Pioneer
I set the model to: DVR-108
I set the revision to: 1.4
(I made up the settings, i don't own a dvr-108)

Click OK, wait a minute while DT reconfigures, mount your image, then open iTunes. Hope this helps you out.
