New iPod - Questions

Posted:
in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
A friend just gave me her 20GB iPod Clickwheel. I have never owned an iPod, and have a question (and will probably have more later). The install CD she gave me is, from what she believes, is her daughter's Nano. When I started installing it, is asked for the seriel number. The problem is that it wants 11 digits, but the iPod she gave me only has 10. Is there a place to download the installation CD for a 4th Gen. iPod Clickwheel? I didn't see anything on Apple's site other than User's Guides.

Thanks

    I'd love to begin using it, but I'm at a loss to do so without installing the software.

    I'm not sure if I can help or not, but I've had many iPods and don't remember ever entering a serial number.

    Have you tried this:

    1. Go to Apple.com and download the latest version of iTunes.

    2. Install it.

    3. Run it.

    4. Connect the iPod.



    I really don't think that there's anything more to it than that.



    Let me(us) know if that worked.

    I'll second that. The "install CD" is just a (by now out of date) copy of iTunes. Apple stopped bothering with even that some time in '06, since they figured most people could easily download a current version.



    Which is what you should do.

    Opening iTunes and connecting it seems to do the trick. Thanks for the help!
