    Hey, I've got a 2nd Gen Ipod Touch, and i've been having a few problems with it sadly.

    I went into the apple store, and they said that I should restore it. So i'm like ok, but last time i restored it i lost all my applications and had to reinstall them on, and they said that I could sync them from my ipod to my Itunes on my PC.

    Problem is, I can't seem to sync the ones i have on my ipod to my Itunes. When i press the Ipod touch icon on the left of my itunes, I can look at all my movies/music/pictures, but at the application tab there's nothing, and that's when i press "Sync applications - all applications" and sync it again. Is there a way to sync them from the ipod to my pc, so when I restore it i can put them all back on it easily?

    Thanks for reading,

    Starkey

    Did you authorize the computer with your account and transfer purchases?

    Uhh.. I think so :\
    When you plug in your iPod, on the left of iTunes, right-click it and "transfer purchases from device"

    and then they should go to your iTunes if you bought the apps on your iPod

    But why would you want to? Surely your apps are already on your PC?

    And remember you can re-buy the apps you already own (legally) for free from iTunes.

    Don't really know what you're trying to say. If you're asking whether i'm connected to the same itunes account on my Ipod Touch and my Itunes on my PC, yes, i am.

    Hmm, weird. I pressed "Transfer purchases from Ipod" and it done a loading thing at the top saying it was transfering a few of my apps, then nothing appeared at the app bit of the menu =/ f*** sakes
