Yes well i use Windows, but i think that the new version of iTunes might have something to do why the iPod wont restore. This is what i was trying to find out. Anyway to make that file work with the older version?


I'm sorry but I've never deal with that issue with Windows, so I wont be able to assist you on how to make those files work in a older version of iTunes.


I'm sure someone here will assist you shortly.
