I am getting the very same error when I try to reinstall the ipod / itunes software.

Everything came to halt when I could not open my itunes. Error was "itunes folder in My Nusic not found and could not be created" But this folder does exist in c:/documents and folders/ian/My Documents, My Music, iTunes
.
I removed itunes and ipod from my computer and the tried to reinstall.

The reinstall encountered :error 1327 Invalid drive :f\"

Which stops any further install - prevents me from doing ANYTHING. Ipod dies.

I have the feeling that iTunes like Norton and Maccafee are all pevasive arrogant pieces of software.

Any ideas anyone.

Am new to the ipod philosophy. Never expected anything like this.

change the drive where you are installing to. do you have a card reader, optical drive, floppy drive that is assigned F:?

Hello Tony,

Problem was solved by doing a registry search for any :\F references. I found two :\f\My Music and :\F\My Itunes.
I deleted these.
Now all explained. When I had tried to use my ipod as a data dump, these registry entries must have been created.
Error 1327 must be coming from the itunes installer program. Its not from MS.

Dont understand your bottom line comment about cookies. Am I the source?

Try it this way:
open a command window (via Run CMD)
Then type:
subst F: %TEMP%

Run the installation again.
after that type:
subst F: /d

Hello,

I had same error while trying to install a software in my XP Pro SP2.

In my case I have "My Documents" target to my office's network drive wich isn't connected at home right now.
If it's your case too, just right.click the "My Documents" and notice it's target (by example F:\ ) change this target browsing to : C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents or to any other folder inside your computer click OK

Now try to install your software again, it may work with no problems,.

After install don't forget to right.click My Documents again and put back it's target drive, so you won't have problems at the office next day..

Cheers ! PcTechPetru

I'm having a very similar problem trying to update iTunes 9 to iTunes 10 on a PC with Vista. Whenever it tries to install, I am told that there is an error and that it has been trying to install to drive E. No portable drive, flash drive, or ipod is connected to the computer, although I do have a portable hard drive which has not been connected for at least a year.

I have a very extensive music library on this computer. My ipod classic was stolen recently. I'd like to replace it but cannot since a new one would not run with itunes 9 as my old one did.

Does anyone please have a solution you can share with me?

Donna,

Not a solution, but a warning. I gather the files you've collected on the computer may be difficult or not free to replace, so you should immediately back them up.

I'd consider backing up the entire iTunes file containing partition AND backing up the system partition, because as I understand it, iTunes does a lot of registry and other manipulation and just having the iTune files backed-up MAY not be enough if something (else) goes wrong.

The first part worked but when typing subst F: /d it stated invalid command.
