    just bought a ipod 7th generation. problem is that my macbook pro is Snow Leopard, and because its, i think, 2007, early. i do have a Mac Pro desktop that i can use but would be nice to be able to use my macbook. is there a work around.

    I'm confused - are you having issues because the Macbook is too old or too new? Have you tried updating iTunes itself?

    Aww, that's lame. Sorry about that!

    I know they are quite different iPods but the 6th generation is quite a nice one, I used to have a couple. Too bad it doesn't have bluetooth though...

    That said, your Mac should be able to update to Lion, if not El Capitan, which does work with iTunes 12...

    when i bought a 6th generation i remember asking the guy at the store if he was sure it was a ipod. well over the years my wife as gotten use to it and how it clips onto her when she is working out. she doesnt need, or care, about bluetooth. anyway i found one on ebay, new in the box, bought it.
