I updated my iPod Nano (3rd Gen) to software version 1.1.2 this weekend. I was even going to write an article about it, but it never happened. Today, I plugged in my iPod to charge it, and what did I find? iTunes was asking if I wanted to upgrade to software version 1.5.
I thought, “Wow, that was a very fast upgrade in just two days!” It turns out, iTunes was recognizing my iPod Nano as a 1st or 2nd Gen iPod (at least, that is what it looks like to me, correct me if I am wrong).
So, then this is where it gets annoying. I obviously did not install the software, and so I had to restore factory settings. As I look back now, I should have tried resetting the Nano before restoring it to factory settings.
The real bummer about restoring your iPod is that all the settings and everything are also reset (not to mention my high scores in Tetris and Klondike). I didn’t realize how many default settings I had changed since I bought this iPod a few months ago. There is still something missing, but I can’t figure it out.
Has anyone else experienced something like this? Is this unique, or did Apple not get all those bugs fixed in their latest update, and instead introduced a couple?
