    Is there any link for IPOD 3GS download ? And also pls mention if my IPOD 3GS 8 GB can be upgraded at all as Apple mentioned only 3GS 16 & 32 GB versions in their website as gadgets that can be upgraded. Thanks – Sub

    There is no device as 'iPod 3GS'. The latest iPod is 3rd Generation or 3G.

    Thanks for your answer… But my question was if my version of Ipod touch 3G (8 GB) can be upgraded to OS 4 ? Pls check the COMPATIBILITY section in this link. – http://www.apple.com/ipodtouch/ios4-software-up… ….. According to Apple, 2 versions of Ipod touch can be upgraded 1> iPod touch 2nd generation (late 2008)
    and 2> iPod touch 3rd generation 32GB and 64GB (late 2009). They did not mention anything about 8 GB version. Mine is late 2009 version but 8 GB. I am asking this question because for the past 3 days I am unable to upgrade it. It is getting stuck at the backup section for ever… But without upgrading it works fine. Thanks again in advance for your answer.
