Trying to figure out how to save all your songs AND update to the new 5.1.1 software for your iPod? Use sharepod!
I am by no means tech savvy in any way and I was able to use this program and successfully update my iPod without losing all my music since Itunes does not do it for you. I know I`m a bit late with the update but I was avoiding having to figure out how to accomplish this feat.
It`s simple. Just install it, the program will take the music from your ipod, put it on your comp. You`re then free to update. Just put your music back on as you normally would after the update is done.
** I did run into a problem where not all my songs would sync. Some would and then others just didn`t. All I did was restore the ipod (the new software is still installed) and then tried putting my music back on. Worked perfectly!
Hope this helps!
