I want to update my ipod touch 4th gen. to ios6 but i don't want to lose all my music as itunes indicates that it is only possible to preform a update after clearing the hard drive. Does anyone have an idea how i'd be able to update my ipod and keep my music?


btw English isn't my native language so i apologize for any possible grammatical errors

iOS 4
