I keep on getting the error: "Ipod cannot be updated because it contains files that are use by another application" I try to restore and I get "Ipod cannot be restored because it contains files that are use by another application." I have Itunes 7.0 and the Ipod video is version 1.1.2 and I am trying to update to version 1.2.
I would be most grateful to have your help....:-)
