I just recently got a new MBA 11" and when I go to sync/backup my ipod touch 2g with ios 4.0, i get an error message saying "iTunes could not back up the iPod because a session could not be started with the iPod." It seems to sync fine, but then I get the error msg and it doesnt do the backup. I want to upgrade the iOS to the latest 4.2, and keep my settings and game scores, etc., which is why I need it to back up. It worked fine with no errors before on my old laptop (MBP 13 2009), but I no longer have it to back up to. I can backup fully to my dads PC without errors, but I dont want to have to back up to the PC everytime. Ive tried searching for different solutions, and nothing seems to help. Some of the things I've tried: -changing the timezones -deleting old backups (its a new laptop, so there are no backups to delete) -restarting ipod -restarting laptop -reinstalling itunes (i've got the latest - 10.1.1) I really don't want to do a restore and lose all my program data and settings. Is there any way to back up to the PC, copy the saved data over to my MBA, restore the iPod touch, and then backup with the MBA? Any help would be appreciated!
