Why can't i update the ios for my ipod? I'm stuck at 3.1.3. Please help.
I have itunes updated but it doesn't show that an update is available for the ipod.

Probably because yu have a 1G iPod that can only go as high as 3.1.3. To identify your iPod:

If you have a later iPod, what version of iTunes do you have on your computer and what computer OS and version?

  • HT4623 Why can't I update my iOS on my iPod touch

    I am unable to add any apps to my device due to the iOS I am running but when I tried to update it I was not able to. Why is that ? Please Help.

    If you have an iPod Touch 2, iOS 4.2.1 is the last iOS supported on that device.
    You will not be able to add newer iOS apps, but you still can choose from well over 60,000 vintage iOS apps.
    The trick is finding them. One way you could try,

  • Why can't I update the software on my ipod touch?

    I have iOS 2.2 on my iPod Touch first generation and I can't update it. It says that iTunes cannot connect to the software updater driver of the iPod.I've tried everything I could think of and before and bring it to the Apple store for service or repair is there any other options or possibilities somehow to update the software on the iPod doing it by myself without going to the Apple store? 
    P.S. It shows me: An unknown error has occured (-1)
    Thank you
    Best Regards,

    The 1G can only go to 3.1.3 by:
    Purchasing iOS 3.1 Software Update for iPod touch (1st generation)

    You have to update via iTunes.
    iTunes for Windows: iTunes cannot contact the iPhone, iPad, or iPod software update server
    Error 1 or -1
    This may indicate a hardware issue with your device. Follow Troubleshooting security software issues, and restore your device on a different known-good computer. If the errors persist on another computer, the device may need service.
    The "device may need service" means a hardware problem. In that case make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

    A 1G iPod can go to iOS 2.2 via iTunes and iOS 3.1.3 via
    Purchasing iOS 3.1 Software Update for iPod touch (1st generation)
    A 2G to 4.2.1. Requires iTunes version 10.X. If a Mac it requires OSX 10.5.8 or later. With OSX 10.4.11 you can only go to iTunes 9.X which gets you as high as iOS 4.1
    A 3G to 5.1.1  Requires iTunes version 10.5 or later
    A 4G to 6  Requires iTunes version 10.7 or later. For a Mac, that requires a Mac with OSX 10.6.8 or later

    The songs on my iPod Video 5th Gen now, were at one time on my computer, but have since been erased. Why can't I export the songs from my iPod back on to my computer? I have this same problem with my other devices (iPad 3rd Gen and iPod Nano 6th Gen). I am really frustrated now, because it seems as if I have to start all over again. This will be a royal pain in the butt! I don't understand why Apple makes this so hard and impossible to do this. Please help, anybody!!
