My dad has an iPod touch that is still running 1.4. He wants to upgrade to 3.0, but the installer had a threatening warning about losing media and he doesn't really sync with his computer very often. If I plug it into my MacBook, and run the installer from there, will it backup his contacts/bookmarks before zapping the data? Can anyone confirm this? Also, is there a way I can force a sync from iPod -> computer? My dad's original computer is no longer around.
