I updated iTunes today to version 10 and while I was at it, thought I should backup my iPod Touch. During the backup/sync process, there was a problem and iTunes displayed an error message saying that this iPod can't be synced!

I tried the sync again but got the same message. Then I downloaded and reinstalled iTunes 10. Now when I connect my iPod it detects it as a new one, asking me to restore from my last backup (about 1 month ago) or set it up as a new iPod.

I could just restore it from that backup, but that is not ideal as i'd loose data for my apps generated since that backup (which is a pain) and i've purchased music from the mobile itunes store, which has not been transferred to my mac.

Details:
Mac OSX 10.6.4
iTunes 10.0 (67)
iPod Touch 3rd Generation, 32GB model
iOS 4.0.2 (8A400)

Is there any way to either:
1) Get iTunes to sync with the iPod properly
2) Transfer my purchased music off before doing a restore

Any help would be appreciated!
