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.

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!
