    I updated to iOS 5, and in iTunes, there is no option to "Sync with this iPod over wifi" on either of my iPods. I am on iTunes 10.5 official, iOS 5 official, and I do not know what to do. When I go into my settings on my iPod and choose iTunes wifi sync, I get "Sync will resume when "(name here)'s iMac is available. It is available! It says I'm wifi syncing, but the iMac only is "available" when I connect via USB. I am on Mac 10.5.8 Leopard. Anyone have a solution?

    It has been posted that you must have Snow Leopard or Lion. I have same problem with Leopard.

    Wonder if Apple will maybe fix this in iOS 5.1/5.2 or iTunes 10.5.*...

    WindowsXP (from 2001) can sync even. It's just Apple leaving its own Apple users out in the cold as usual. You MUST have 10.6.8 or newer to use WiFi sync...and yet AppleTV Gen1 has synced over WiFi since its inception...even on 10.4.x! :rolleyes:

    Windows 7 can sync over wifi, at least for iPhone and iPad.
