About iPod Software Updater

The iPod Software Updater has two functions, update and restore.

Update: The Update command downloads new software to an iPod. The Update command may be disabled if the iPod does not need to be updated because it already has up-to-date software.

Restore: The Restore command returns an iPod to "factory fresh" condition. It erases and reformats the iPod before downloading new software. WARNING: The Restore command erases all of the music and other data currently on the iPod.
