    I was having problems syncing my iPod earlier today...as in it would update but it changed all of my settings. I thought it might have been b/c of some Acquisition (only live, unavailable for purchase stuff) music I had put on there, but then when I changed setting and tried to "apply" changes the iPod wasn't recognized.

    Tonight I see there's a software update for the 5G. It's numbered 1.2.1. So if any of y'all are having problems out there, give that a try. I got the prompt just as I was about to restore, so don't lose hope.

    Good luck.

    No search for me, though the "big letter" thing works better.

    Does anyone know if this addresses performance issues? On my iPod I have a problem where if I try to scroll through my music while something is playing, it is very slow and choppy.

    This update did NOT work for me. My issue is when I first plug in the IPOD, it updates fine. If I change something about my settings or need to update again, I am unable to do so and get an error -50. Itunes says t's updating but nothting happens with the ipod. Also not being recognized in My Computer as a disk drive. So hopeful but alas no resolution. VERY Frustrating!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry can't help you with that. My wife has a 1G shuffle, and we occasionally have problems w/ that on our PC. I've just learned to be patient when dealing with that.
