    Is there any way to sync an iTouch or an iPhone with a Windows 98 computer? Is there anyway to sync your apps, music and videos wth a windows 98 computer?

    On the iTunes download page, it says in the requirements area:

    So I don't think it will install on a 98 machine. The hardware is likely much too slow and your USB ports might not be very supportive of any new devices.

    Your 98 will blow up if you try syncing a iPhone on it

    You have an iPhone. But then you have Windows 98. Surly if you can run 98 you can run XP. Buy a disc on eBay for $15.

    Like Lux2GS said, the USB ports don't support it. While I'm sure XP can be run (slowly), the USB ports are too old.

    I use a machine that started out with 95 and 1.0 USB ports, and that syncs fine. I use Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP. Goes pretty fast.
