I had a couple of problems with 8.1 and the Shuffle - I could not delete songs when doing Autofill, and the Shuffle would not play in continuous mode. I gave up and restored iTunes 8.0, which I grabbed from my Time Capsule.Downgrading to iTunes 8.0 is a bit tricky - The iTunes Library has to be rebuilt manually. I had to use the following procedure: Re-creating the iTunes Library file (from Apple Support)Follow these steps:Quit iTunes. Locate your iTunes folder. For Mac OS X the iTunes folder is stored in: /Users/[your username]/Music For Microsoft Windows XP and 2000 the iTunes folder is stored in: \Documents and Settings\[your username]\My Documents\My Music\ For Microsoft Windows Vista the iTunes folder is stored in: \Users\[your username]\Music\ Open your iTunes folder. Drag the iTunes Music Library.xml to the Desktop Drag the following file from your iTunes folder to the Trash: Mac OS X: "iTunes Library" (in versions of iTunes prior to 4.9 this was called "iTunes 4 Music Library") Microsoft Windows: "iTunes Library.itl" (in versions of iTunes prior to 4.9 this was called "iTunes 4 Music Library.itl") Open iTunes. Tip: Do not add any content into iTunes at this point. Choose File > Library > Import Playlist. Navigate to the iTunes Music Library.xml file on the Desktop. Mac users: Click Choose. Windows users: Click Open. After re-creating your library, any devices that you sync with iTunes (Apple TV, iPod, iPhone) will see your iTunes library as a new library and will completely resync." If your Podcasts list in iTunes is empty after following these steps, see article HT2562 (Apple Support).
