    The option to update without the computer (Over the air) was made available with iOS 5. If your iDevice is using a version of iOS lower than 5, you will need to use iTunes on your syncing computer to perform the upgrade. Use the Apple link below as a guide for the upgrade.




    Also read the instructions from the section entitled "Update your device using iTunes" at the link below.




    Information regarding transferring purchases from your iDevice to iTunes on your syncing computer can be found at the link below.

    Are you sure yo have a 3G iPod?. Some users who thought thay has a 3G iPod really had a 2G. A 2G can only go to 4.2.1
