Hi. I have an ipod touch version 4.1. Model #MC540LL.


Some of my apps haven't been working, but when I try to re-install them, I get this message: "This app requires ios 4.3."  When I connect with my computer to sync, I have an update message: "A newer version of the Ipod software is available (version 6.1). To update your iPod with the latest software, click Update." But when I do that, a window pops up that says this: "The iPod software update server could not be contacted. Make sure your network connection is active, or try again later."


I live in India. Could this be the problem? Do I need a VPN to do this? My network connection is fine, as I am on the internet all the time.


Thanks for any help.

iPod touch, iOS 4.1

    iTunes for Windows: iTunes cannot contact the iPhone, iPad, or iPod software update server

    Next try connecting to your computer and update via iTunes.
