    I restored my old ipod to give to a friend. When she started she synced to itunes and it brought up a very old version for her and she can’t do anything on there, it keeps saying she needs a newer version and she has updated the software. When I had it it did not look like that. It was great. She tried updating the itunes software and it says that it is but it does not look like it did when I had it. So she unistalled the itunes software and reinstalled it and as soon as she plugged in the ipod it brought back all her stuff. Why did it bring in such an old version and how can we get it back up and running propperly? It was a great ipod and now after the restore it sucks. HELP.
