When I plugged my new Ipod touch into Itunes it said that I needed a more recent version of Apple Mobile Device, and I have to reinstall Itunes (I have the current version of Itunes). I found a link to a newer version, but I have absolutely no Idea on how to download it. Heres the link: http://apple-mobile-device-support.updatestar.com/


Or is there something else I'm suppose to do? If anyone could help, it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

iPod touch, iOS 6.0.2

    I would strongly suggest not downloading any Apple software from an unauthorized source. You have no way of knowing what you actually will get; it could easily be or contain malware. AMDS is part of the iTunes installer and is not available separately from Apple, to the best of my knowledge.


    As to your problem, this support article may help:

    Thanks, I am going to unistall Itunes, but I was wondering if I unistalled itunes, would it get rid of all of my library?

  • varjak paw Level 10 Level 10

    No, uninstalling iTunes will normally not affect the library. It would be wise to make a backup copy, though, just in case something were to go wrong. The easist way will be to just drag-copy the entire iTunes folder to another location or, better, an external drive.

    Thank you so much! It worked for me I would like to click the "This solved my question" button but its nowhere to be found (it was when I first posted the question) But you really helped me and I appreciate it, thank you

    Not a problem, Rhonda. I'm just happy you were able to get it sorted out.
