I have PC (HP Mini netbook with Widows 7 Starter and latest iTunes update) but I have an old iPod 2 and can't afford a new one. Will I be able to use cloud (I think not) and can I download the new iTunes software to my Touch 2 so that I can sync the music I purchased and downloaded yesterday. I am a new user of iTunes. Thanks for any help.
If I can sync, I need to know if I do that by using iPod Touch 2 and going to iTunes, or if I connect the iPod to my netbook via USB cord.
You'll need at least iOS5 to be able to use iCloud:
iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, contacts, calendars, and more, and wirelessly pushes them to your devices with iOS 5 or later installed, and to your computers. iCloud is integrated with your apps, so everything happens automatically.
You can only connect to iTunes on your computer to sync content.
But you can download purchased media again for free:
