Need help. I am not a technical Mac user as much as I am in Windows. I respect the ease of use that Mac brings but am not sold on many of their claims; however I don't want to get into that today.
I have a 2007 Mac with 10.4.11 OS (Tiger apparently) and ITunes 9.2.1. My daughter got a new IPod nano for Christmas. When we tried to connect it to our ITunes, it tells me that I need ITunes 10 for it. When I try to download and install ITunes 10, the download tells me that I need OS 10.5 (Leopard). The upgrade to Snow Leopard looks to cost $129.
What are my options?
- Can up I upgrade with the $129 kit noted? Will the new Itunes work with my wife's 4-5 year old classic IPod? Will it work with my son's 1 year old IPod?
-What other options do I have?
I am asking for a simple answer to point me in the right direction. Please only reply if you have answers or further questions directly related to this post. If you want to degrade this into an Apple bashing session (which I would gladly participate in), please do so in another thread. Thank you.
maclife.com has a pretty good forum site where this kind of stuff is covered. Think it's going to involve putting an older version of iTunes on your nano, then syncing. Never done it personally but have read about it being done before.
That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?
If you have a Mac with an Intel processor it should be able to run Snow Leopard. I'm pretty sure that any iPod will work with the new versions of iTunes because original iPod from back in the day still works.
I had the same issue when I got an iphone late last summer. I was prepared to buy the $130 dollar bridge software (Tiger to Snow Leopard), but after talking to a sales rep at the Apple store, he told me the $30 dollar Snow Leopard would work if I did a clean install and to look on Youtube for help. Sure enough, there were several Youtube videos with step by step instructions on what to do. I backed everything up onto my external device and then went through the clean install. I had issues installing from the cd so I eventually had to re-install Tiger and then install Leopard onto my external device and was then able to do a clean install from my external device. Good luck!
