Well, I have used this before, and it worked as is, Unless you didn't copy the whole thing. But that is about the only thing I can think off.

Well KilllerX, it didn't work for me before, then I tried that, and guess what? It worked.

The6puff... Why would you have an opening bracket before you even has an identifier. You need to identify the command first. So saying it should be {alisas Itunes

Is redundant and incorrect. AS it would cause an error in your coding.
