    iTunes 9
    Just downloaded the iTunes software update to iTunes 9.

    This may seem picky, but in iTunes 8 the 'grid' view, showing all albums, had a black background behind the album icons that I prefer to the now white background in 9.

    Any way to change the background colour in 9 from white to black?

    Also, how would I revert 'back' to iTunes 8 without losing all my music, cover art etc?

    Thanks

    I am also particularly interested in an answer to this question. I am quite unhappy with iTunes 9 and would like to go back to version 8, but it won't let me. Seems like a terrible system that forces you to stay "upgraded" once you have.

    Yeah, it's the same with all these programs nowadays. I'm actually running OS 10.3 with iTunes 7 and it rocks!
    Apple still offers iTunes 7.7.1 here:
    Apple - Downloads - iPod + iTunes - iTunes 7.7.1
    They might also still offer 8, but I think 7 is better

    The problem isn't with getting the software. I never deleted the old iTunes software, but it can't open the iTunes Library file because it was "created by a newer version." This is the problem I need to know how to overcome. Would simply restoring to an older backup in Time Machine (before I downloaded iTunes 9) work? I'd prefer not to, but if that's what it takes to get to use a properly functioning iTunes again I will.
