I have an old G5 PC. (not intel) that I have a most recent back up of 11/24/12. The ipod Synched no problem with ios 5.x. But since the IOS on thhe ipod has been updated to OS6, the ipod has stopped to sync with my G5. (itunes 10.6.3, G5 osX 10.5.8 The max I can get) I had to replace my ipod 5 days ago. I am trying to sync the ipod (iOS6.0.1) but I get the error message (the backup xxxipod cannot be restored to this ipod, becasue the software on the ipod is too old) What, it's not, it's the G5 Software that is too old! Don't get this erros message.
Anyway, the only way I can update the ipod, would be to use my Macbook intel laptop with (mmac osx 10.5.8 as well, but the itunes library on the laptop is not proper) so I was thinking to put my G5 itunes library onto an external Drive, and then POINT itunes from the laptop tto that library on the external drive.
Problem is, how about the aps and photos:
Aps = Mobile Sync -> which is not into the itunes library
Photos sync-> which are in iphoto!
What do I don???
To restore an iPod with iOS 6 you need a computer with iTunes 10.7 which then requires OSX 10.6.8 or higher. You can sync a 4G iPod with an OSX 10.5.8 though. See:
Photos that are in the Camera Roll album are included in the iPod that iTunes makes. You can copy the backup to the laptop adn then restore from that backup after you get the synced media in the iTunes library of the laptop. The backjp is located.
iTunes places the backup files in the following places:
You can move the iTunes library by:
i tried the suggestion on the other link you posted above at 4:56pm... did not work!
I already had itunes 10.6.3 and have OSX 10.5.8 on G5 power pc. In any case, I reinstalled the itunes 10.6.3 from link above.... and I still get the same error! ( the backup on michel vezina's Ipod cannot be restored to this ipod becasue the software on th ipod is too old) ***... the ipod is at ios 6.0.1!!
