So I understand I don't get all the features since I just have an iPod 8GB, but I still want the update!

When I plug in my iPod and select it in iTunes and then click "Update" I get this message: "This version of iTunes (9.1.1) is the current version." It doesn't say anything about updating to iOS4.

What's going on??? Thanks for any help!

    iTunes is on crack, it thinks you're asking it to update iTunes and on top of that thinks 9.1.1 is the latest. Try a different computer, or reinstall iTunes with 9.2

    I'm having the same problem with my iPod 3g 32GB. Whenever I click update it tells me that itunes version 9.1.1 is the most recent update. Very frustrating!

    There are a couple of things to note why you are getting this error:

    1. One of the requirements for iTunes 9.2 is to have Mac OSx version 10.4.11 or later
    2. I think what you guys are doing is running iTunes and trying to update iTunes instead of your iPod Touch. I think you are highlighting iTunes and then running Check For Updates. This will only check for iTunes updates and not for iPod Touch updates.

    Connect your iPod Touch to iTunes and then *Highlight your iPod's name in the left pane* once it is connected. To the right you will see a button titled *Check for Updates*. Press that button with your iPod Touch connected and highlighted. You should then see the iOS 4 update as available.

    Thanks for the response... However I have been making sure to highlight the iPod when clicking update, but still to no avail.

    I think the issue is iTunes. I'm working on switching to 9.2 but apparently there are issues with that as well [http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2470437&tstart=15]

    Just beware that if you don't turn off WiFi, you'll get about 1/4 the battery life with iOS 4.

    Don't upgrade unless you can be near a charging station all the time. My battery life went form about 3 days to less than 12 hours after the "upgrade".

    Thanks. I'm re-thinking the update at this point. Seems to be a lot of things that can go wrong.

    why mess with a good thing...
