    Hi I'm new here and a newbie to Ipod Touch. I got one for my 57th birthday and I'm technically challenged. I've figured out how to download apps etc but my unit is suppose to be a 3rd gen but when I try to download the app ibooks I get an error msg saying I need to upgrade my software to version 3.2. Where do I find that? Thanx for any help.

    ok so I followed the direction and I hit the update button and it tells me I have paid things on my ipod and I will lose them if I don't transfer them before doing the update so naturally I thought that meant sync since that little button is there so I did that. Welp not sure what sync'd but not the apps and tunes etc cuz when I went back to update I got the same msg. Told ya I was tecnically challenged.

    check to see if the things are there if they r go ahead if they arent then try syncing again

    ps after you update you will need to restore all your music apps etc so make sure it is all there

    sigh

    not sure but my roommates email showed up in the window for home share. I know when I got it we had to try things on two other laptops cuz his iphone froze the tower pc.
    should I just remove itunes from the computer and reinstall itunes
