    I am new to this site so I hope you can help me with a problem I have had recently with my Ipod touch 2nd generation.

    Whenever there is a a new version I always try to install it. However the last 2 times have been a nightmare. I am currently running 4.1. The software begins to download to my PC then stops and tells me I must connect with 1-tunes (which I am already). I cannot get out of this screen so the last 2 times i have connected it to my laptop, downloaded i-tunes to that and then installed the new software which causes no problems. However, the big problem I then have is that all my software is on my PC and it then syncs it and I lose all my settings. All my apps are all over the place and any that have saved info are lost. I assume the apps are copied somewhere but I guess these are overwritten when I sync. I dearly hope they are saved somewhere that i can restore from.

    Can anyone out there help me please. I am very nervous about updating my device now.
