    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.

    to go ipod to computer you need a program such as senutil.
    search google for "ipod to computer".

    Sync copies some stuff from the iPod, but not all of it and you need the computer that you loaded from
