There is nothing wrong with installing the iTunes 7.5 update. I just did it last night and there is nothing about the ipod touch in this update.

Ok, look.

When the update comes out, your computer will ask you do you want to install the ipod update. Just say no. It is that simple. Then wait and read the forums to see what effect the update has done for others. Others will try it so that they can make it compatible for others in the future.
If you want to be extra safe...
On your Mac, go into System Preferences and click on the Software Update and inside there make sure that you have the Download important updates automatically feature disabled.
In other words, make sure that box is UNchecked

That is the best that I can do. The rest you will just have to wait and see like everybody else.


Also, you might want to be safe and go follow these directions.
