- Your iPod does have a camera, right?
- Have you tried placing the iPod in Recovery mode and then restoring via iTunes? The restore will do the update too.
- Next would be to place the iPod in DFU mod and the thry a restore.
iPod has a camera.
Yea tried recovery mode and DFU mode but same problem. iTunes opens the file selector window (see image below) so I can select a file from my PC. I am guessing here, but I thought it should go off to iTunes and find the update and start the install (tried upgrade and restore, same thing happens). I downloaded the ipsw file and selected it but get the error described in the first message above
Will try from a different computer to see if it makes a difference.
Tried another computer and it updated no problem.
Must be something locked down on my computer, firewall, policy setting!! I don't have rights to switch everything off. Even though had open connection to intenet and other features of iTunes appeared to work.
Next problem is how to sync iPod with my iTunes library as it has been rebuilt on a different PC. If I hit restore I think I will run into the same problem as above.
Unless you restore the iPod on your computer you will not be able to sync with it. You can however manage music and videos with that computer.
You can now with iOS5 backup to iCloud via wifi and update via wifi.
