    To update

    The Settings>General>Software Update comes with iOS 5 and later.

    Connect the iPod to your computer and update via iTunes as far as your iPod model allows

    iOS: How to update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

    A 2G to 4.2.1. Requires iTunes version 10.X. If a Mac it requires OSX 10.5.8 or later. With OSX 10.4.11 you can only go to iTunes 9.X which gets you as high as iOS 4.1

    A 3G to 5.1.1  Requires iTunes version 10.5 or later

    A 4G to 6  Requires iTunes version 10.7 or later. For a Mac, that requires a Mac with OSX 10.6.8 or later

    Yu may have a 2G iPod. Those can only go to iOS 4.2.1.
