    My old computer died after eight years of faithful service, so I got a used G5 and put the old HD into a FW case. Some weeks later, I plugged my touch into the G5 only to have iTunes tell me it could not read the iPod, that I could click on Restore and all would be good. Luckily, since this was a G5, I was able to boot from the old OS, but then it coughed slightly on the sync and threw out a couple of (freeware) apps. At least I was able to tranfer over a movie I wanted, but this just pisses me off. "Restore" would revert me back to OS v2.x, so I do not consider that a reasonable option. I have been just a bit annoyed with Apple for several years, this BS raises that up more than a notch or two.

    If you restore an iPod on a new computer and need to restore it will download the latest version of the iPod software if it's not on your computet already, so it won't revert back to the old version. I don't know if you wanted to know that or not, but I thought it would be helpful.
