If this is posted elsewhere, forgive me! Feel free to point me in that direction. I just bought a used 3rd gen. 32gb touch, which came with some apps I'd like to keep. I haven't synced it w/ my machine yet, because I was wondering if there was a way to save them and make them part of my account, without having the seller's account info. or computer. In other words, is there a way to reverse sync, download, or transfer the apps to my account or machine so I don't lose them? The device isn't jailbroken. As a side note, XP recognizes the ipod as a camera, and trying to change the drivers via control panel in the apple folder returns the "no valid drivers in folder" message. So, I can't get XP to recognize it as a drive. Jailbreaking seems attractive, now that I've discovered how locked down apple programs their hardware! Thanks!
