I searched all over the Apple website for the download to update the 1G's firmware and I can not find it anywhere. iTunes will not allow me to do the update either, it tells me that 1.1.5 is the highest that I can go. I am unsatisfied with this and I would like assistance. I have tried programs. QuickPWN/others but for some reason they can not find the Ipod when it is connected to my computer. I am getting frustrated. I would like to break this thing and make it an ugly paperweight. Any assistance in these matters would be greatly appreciated. -JD.
