    Click Restore in iTunes and it should download it for you.

    ^ Am quoting TmacHot on this:

    If it's still not there & you've deleted it, you'd need to re-download it again via iTunes.

    ^ When you connect your iPod to the computer & click on the "Check for Update" button, doesn't it prompt you to upgrade to the newer firmware (3.0)??? Don't try searching for it in the app store. Hope this clears things.

    no, because it said: you have allready the last upgrade 3.0...something like this anyway...also doing the restore device it install in automatic the 3.0 version without save it on my pc...the last idea i got was to try to restore it and when it said as new device or the old device..so doing this maybe it doenst install the version 3...anyway i dunno..thx

    In any folder (documents) on your computer go to tools/folder options/view tab/click show hidden files and folders. Then you will be able to find it.

    Good to hear you've got it fixed. No worries, everyone's a newbie some time!
