Hi, This is a major pain as you say. I just did the same update because it popped up. The video is jumping/distorted and the tunes do not play. So I restored using the current updated software. So the ipod has no music at all and is back to the original settings with the jumping/distortion still occurring. So given your response should I uninstall and install the old software? You indicated that it will not effect the music library that is on the computer?
