    This is driving me crazy, I've searched here and on google for a location on the .ipsw files are stored.

    I remember going there a few times, but annoyingly enough I can't find them now, I thought it it was in program files/itunes or/quicktime but I guess not.

    I'm wanting to find it because I KNOW I've been using 1.1.4 since it came out (which also first froze my ipod into submission where I lost $20 of itunes wi-fi store purchases... I thought Zeitgeist was good, especially the song and music video of Tarantula 15.99 down the drain...) and now it says I'm using 1.1.3 firmware (with upgrade of course). This is kinda confusing cause I'm pretty sure I never restored back to 1.1.4 and I want to find the .ipsw files.

    Sorry for your time.

    EDIT: Sorry I shoulda put this in tech help

    Well doesn't it automatically download into a certain place? I found a place where they were all at, and I did do the search. Darn dog. I hate that dog. It only found me one thing the entire life of this compy. I typed in .ipsw, ipsw, itunes, firmware, itunesfirmware.

    Well, okay if that doesn't work, if I download 1.1.4, and restore my ipod to that, just tell me what will happen, except for the deleting songs and videos and stuff... yes, I am a noob, so get throught this with me.... It will delete anything ziphone about it if I restore? Oh... then all my contacts and stuff will go... argh this hurts

    I think it's in C:\Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application Data\Apple

    Check that folder and it's subfolders.

    On my Mac it's in my user Library>iTunes>iPod Software update

    If your on Windows, just go C>Program Files don't know much about Windows, but I installed iTunes in my computer at work and it created both an iPod and an iTunes folder. I'd imagine updates are in the iPod folder.

    If you are on windows, press WinKey+R and in the run dialog box, type "%AppData%" without the quotes. Then choose the "Roaming" folder, then "Apple Computer" and "iPod Software Updates". That should do it for you.

    EDIT: That's Windows Vista. If you have XP, it should just be in %AppData% and then Apple Computer.
