Few nights ago, I tried pluggin in my iPod Video on my friend’s laptop to charge its batteries. I got excited when I saw that there has been a new iPod software update. My iPod currently runs iPod Software 1.2.1.
Because of my excitement, I tried updating my iPod the following day. But to my disappointment, iTunes now says that the latest iPod software available is 1.2.1. I searched the net for the reason behind this. It’s not only me who experienced the same problem. When I checked Apple’s technical support page, it says that version 1.2.2 is the latest software available for all 5th Generation iPods.
I tried updating my iTunes to 7.5 thinking that it’s the cause of the problem why I am not able to download this update. But to my dismay, it did not fix the problem. Did Apple remove that update? Is it because 1.2.2 causes more problems than bug fixes?
It’s not the only problem users experience about the new update. The other iPod owners who were able to update their iPod are having problems on displaying the ipods contents. After updating their iPod to 1.2.2, all of their contents were gone from the catalog, yet it can still be played from iTunes and still occupies space from your iPod. According to Apple, when updating to 1.2.2, the user must use iTunes 7.5.
