And 10 minutes after I posted this? Never mind. I fixed it. But I still hate Vista.
Preface: I know everyone’s first answer to this is going to be “Get a Mac”, but that’s not an option.
Six months ago (or so), I got a new computer and it came with Windows Vista. Yes, Vista is pretty, but it sucks ass. There’s not one thing I like about it. At all.
I haven’t played Sims 2 at all, because I’m scared to install it with the fear of it making other things not work like they’re supposed to work. I also can’t find all my expansion packs, and you’re crazy if you think I’m playing without having a perfect pet for my Sims characters.
Anyway, I just found out this weekend that I can’t burn CDs through iTunes. iTunes flashes this neat message that says “Disc burner or software not found”. Okay, thanks. I can burn data CDs, so clearly there’s a disc burner and software somewhere, ya jackasses.
Through the power of the Internet, I read about running a diagnostic test through iTunes, because apparently iTunes and Windows Vista? They’re not friends at all. I did this little diagnostic test, and I got this neat message:
Failed while scanning for CD / DVD drives, error 2510.
Virtual drives can sometimes interfere with reading and writing CDs in iTunes. If this is a virtual drive and you are having problems with other drives, try uninstalling the virtual CD application.
E: Unsupported CD or DVD drive.

Too. Many. Words. I know what it means; I’m just frustrated by it.
I’m also frustrated that when I start iTunes, it looks like this for a good ten minutes:
I won’t even get started on how every single program crashed all the freaking time, because that’d turn into a four billion page novel.
