Can anyone help me?  I have an iPod touch (new in 2009, don't know what that means for generation?).  I have been using it (uploading/updating apps, uploading music and pics, etc.) with no problem until about a month ago.  When I connected the Touch to my computer and wanted to both update and upload some new apps, it says "19+ apps were not installed on iPod because it requires a newer version of software".  Well, I have the newest version of the software.  I even checked for updates on the summary page.  iOS software is version 4.2.1 and when I try to update it says that iPod software 4.2.1 is the current version of the software.


I thought maybe because my iPod touch is so old, that now all the apps are incompatible.  Until today.


My husband got a new iPhone and gave me his old one.  I was so excited!  So....I reset the phone and went to sync all of my apps to the new phone.  Low and behold, I am still getting the same error message as above.  This should not happen!  His is an iPhone 3 and I'm sure newer than my iTouch.


Can anyone help me please?  As you can probably tell by my descriptions, I'm not the most tech savvy person.  However, all I know that I can do to fix this situation, I've done.  I'm completely confused and really could use any and all help that you can provide!!!


Thank you!

iPod touch, Windows 7
