Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation
I just got an ipod and it says I need to have at least a system 10.4.8 for my mac, I only have 10.3.9 and so my ipod won't work. How do I upgrade my mac or in other ways get my ipod to connect to the computer?
The primary difference between Mac operating system (O/S) version 10.4.8 (Tiger) and 10.3.9 (Panther) is that they are different "reference releases," more commonly called "upgrades." Because upgrades are viewed as major changes in how any software program looks and functions, they are often sold independently in shrink-wrapped packages through local retailers. Updates however, generally only provide fixes to minor problems or cosmetic appearances. This unfortunately means that using the automatic O/S update feature available online will not update your O/S to 10.4.8, and that you may need to purchase the latest O/S available in order to connect your iPod to this computer.
For more information, I would strongly suggest checking out the following articles available through Apple's online support database:
