It has been a while since I synced and updated the software on my ipod touch. I have version 3.1.3 (7E18) with model MA627LL. The last time I did this, I lost all my podcasts.....so I am scared to do this again as I don't want to lose all the music I have downloaded to it.
Please can anyone tell me if there is a way to update without losing the podcasts?
If the podcasts and music are also on your computer then you will not lose them when updating. When update iTunes makes a backup of your ipOd but the backup does not include music or podcasts and some other items since those are/should be in iTunes and are synced back to the iPod at the conclusion of the update.
