    To update

    Connect the iPod to your computer and update via iTunes

    iTunes 10 for Windows: Update and restore software on iPod, iPhone, or iPad

    A 1G iPod can go to iOS 3.1.3

    A 2G to 4.2.1. Requires iTunes version 10.X. That requires a Mac with OSX 10.5.8 or later. With 1OSX 10.4.11 you can only go to iTunes 9.X which gets you as high as iOS 4.1

    A 3G to 5.1.1  Requires iTunes version 10.5 or later

    A 4G to 6  Requires iTunes version 10.7 or later. That requires a Mac with OSX 10.6.8 or later

    Identifying iPod models


    Are you sure you really do not have a 2G iPod? Those can only go to 4.2.1
