[tech] iPod Users: Upgrade to iTunes 7.5 Before Upgrading to 1.2.2

1113. A bit of a warning for iPod 5G (and 5.5G) owners – there's a new update to the iPod operating software, to version 1.2.2. I'm not sure what it adds to the iPod, but I like keeping this ugraded, so I went in and did it – and the iPod came back with the lists (playlists, song lists, everything) completely wiped clean.

Even though the iPod was apparently filled, the menus were completely blank.

However, upgrading iTunes to version 7.5 (we were running 7.3) fixes this problem.

So, if you want to keep your iPod software current, make sure you're running the most recent iTunes. Nothing was damaged, but it sure looked weird...
