I'm currently running 7.3.1.3 without any issues on 64-bit Vista, with my 60GB Video iPod.

Hopefully Sony will release a 64-bit version soon.

What you'll need to do is call them and tell them of the problem and see what they have to say. I'd be curious as to what they say.

Correct, it's not a vista issue, it's an issue just like the eReader's, both devices don't have device drivers for 64-bit Windows, XP or Vista.

Hmm, ok, just read the above post, guess I'll try 7.31 and see what happens.

edit2:well the answer is, both. 7.3.1.3 installs in Vista 64, but the iphone is still not recognized. Vista knows something is being plugged and unplugged from it, but it won't show up in itunes.

So even Apple is not perfect as far as 64-bit software. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Thumbs up Vista

I spent hours trying to install Connect on Vista. I thought it was a Norton 360 problem because I was able to intstall on a Vista laptop without 360. After an hour on the phone with Sony they finally informed me that they did not support 64 bit systems. They did however tell me that they expected to have near term support.

The support person I spoke with talked to his superiors and called me back with this data.
