I recently purchased an iBook g4. Each time I open up iTunes I receive the following message:
"iTunes requires Quicktime 7.5.5 or later"
I currently have Quicktime 7.2.1. Each time I try and download the updated version, it doesn't work. Please help me out!

It's quite possible that with as old a computer as an iBook G4...the version of Quicktime you are trying to download...the iBook G4 may not meet the system requirements (either from a hardware standpoint or from a Mac OS version standpoint).

G'day and welcome to the forums.
Cast your eye over the specs. For a PowerPC iBook G4 you do need to be running Leopard OS X.5. For Leopard the processor needs to be greater than 867MHz.
Apple Compatibility Update for QuickTime 7.5.5 specs and Operating Systems & Update specifications - CNET Download.comHang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
