Can I upgrade my iPod to ios6.0 as I keep getting a message saying upgrade to this but don't no how


iOS 6 is possible only on iPod touch 4th generation and newer
- There are two ways to update the iOS version of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch - via connecting the device to iTunes on a computer
- or directly from within the device, but only since iOS 5, it is possible to update the iOS version without the need to connect the iOS device to a computer (over-the-air update)
just go to: settings - general - software update

Why itune cannot connect to the store


ResolutionClick on the description below that most closely matches your iTunes Store situation:

I have been unable to connect for less than 24 hours Try quitting iTunes and reopening it. If the issue persists, it's possible the store is temporarily unavailable for maintenance. Try again in a few hours. You might want to check the iTunes Store discussion board to see if a connection issue is impacting many other iTunes Store customers.

I have been unable to connect for more than 24 hours on a Mac. If you haven't been able to connect to the iTunes Store for more than a day—and other customers on our discussion boards aren't experiencing similar issues—a software or internet service provider (ISP) configuration issue may be blocking your access to the iTunes Store. Click here to find out which ports and servers need to be allowed for iTunes Store access.
  • Your copy of the iTunes application may be out of date. If iTunes is out of date, it will not be able to connect to the iTunes Store. You can download the latest version of iTunes from our website:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
  • You may need to reset your keychain. Connection issues are occasionally caused by keychain issues. Click here to find out how to use Keychain First Aid to resolve this issue.
  • You switched to a new ISP. If you didn't install new networking hardware, your ISP may be blocking access to the iTunes Store. Let your ISP know about article TS1629 which can help your them configure their servers to allow iTunes Store traffic through.

  • You upgraded to Windows XP Service Pack 2. Windows XP Service Pack 2, by default, enables the Windows Firewall. As with a third-party firewall, you will need to configure Windows Firewall to allow iTunes to access the iTunes Store. To do so:
    1. From the Start menu, choose Control Panel.
    2. If the Control Panel is in Classic View, skip to step 3, otherwise open Security Center.
    3. Open Windows Firewall.
    4. Click the Exceptions tab.
    5. Select the iTunes checkbox to enable it as shown here:
      1. ts1368_1.jpg
      2. Click OK.
      If you have further questions about configuring the Windows Firewall, contact Microsoft's Service Pack 2 hotline at (888) SP2-HELP. Read this article for compatibility information.
    6. You switched to a new ISP. If you didn't install new networking hardware, your ISP may be blocking access to the iTunes Store. Let your ISP know about this article which can help your them configure their servers to allow iTunes Store traffic through.
    7. The "hosts" file may be blocking the iTunes Store Instructions for Windows 2000 and XP: Find your hosts file. The hosts file is normally found in the following locations:

      Windows XP: C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC
      Windows 2000: C:WINNTSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC

      1. Select the hosts file. Then click the Edit menu, and choose Copy.
      2. Then, click the Edit menu again, and choose Paste. There should now be a duplicate of the hosts file named "Copy of hosts".
      3. Drag the original hosts file to your desktop.
      4. Right-click the "Copy of hosts" file and choose Open. You may be prompted to choose the program you want to use to open this file. Double-click Notepad.
      5. When Notepad opens, click the Edit menu and choose Select All. Then click the Edit menu, and choose Delete.
      6. Click the File menu, and choose Save. Close Notepad.
      7. Right-click the "Copy of hosts" file, and choose Rename. Type "hosts" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
      8. Restart your computer and try connecting to the iTunes Store.
      • Make sure that your computer meets the iTunes minimum system requirements.
      • Make sure that your operating system is up to date:
        • For Mac OS X, use Software Update to determine if you need to update your system.
        • For Windows, go to Microsoft's Windows Update webpage.
      • Make sure that you can access the Internet on your computer.
      • You may have firewall or other security software that is preventing your computer from connecting to the iTunes Store. Click here to find out which ports and servers need to be allowed for iTunes Store access.

Disable your internet security while trying to connect. Enable it after you have finished doing whatever you needed to do with itunes. You may also be able to include itunes and the itunes store in the websites acceptable to your internet security software.

I tunes store error 306.


Launch Internet Explorer
Click the Tools menu
Select Internet Options
Click the Connections tab
Click the LAN Settings button
Make sure that that "Use a proxy server for your LAN" checkbox is unchecked
Click OK till you are out of everything, and then close Internet Explorer
Try again in iTunes to load the store

if this dose not work

Then it is your security that is blocking you

try this

Sometimes this error can be caused by software on your computer that slows down the network connection. This error can also appear if you are downloading multiple items. I'd like to provide some steps that should help you successfully download your purchases.

It often helps to pause the download and then download items one at a time. These steps will walk you through doing this:

1) Open iTunes.

2) From the Store menu at the top, choose Check for Available Downloads. If you're unable to upgrade and are using iTunes 7, the option will say Check for Purchases.

3) Enter your account name and password, then click Check. Your purchases should begin downloading.

4) Under the STORE section on the left, click Downloads.

5) Click the Pause All button in the lower-right corner. This will temporarily pause all of your downloads.

6) To resume only one of the downloads, click the refresh button that appears to the right of one of the paused downloads.

Certain types of software can affect the way a computer sends and receives information from the Internet. Here are a few examples of these types of software:

  • Firewalls
  • Web accelerators
  • Ad filters
  • Virus protection software

If you have any of this kind of software installed on your computer, you will need to configure each of the applications to allow your internet connection to access iTunes freely. For instructions, please refer to the documentation that came with that software, or contact the software's manufacturer. You'll need to configure the software to allow these domains to send and receive data from the Internet freely:

itunes.apple.com
ax.itunes.apple.com

For assistance in configuring your firewall or accelerator software, you may need to contact the manufacturer or your Internet service provider (ISP). When contacting their support representatives, it may be useful to have the following information:

"Well Known" TCP and UDP Ports Used By Apple Software Products
http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1629

The following article helps Windows users pinpoint software conflicts that could cause the error:
Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows XP
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1275

Using MSCONFIG to troubleshoot conflicts in Windows Vista
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2292

Once you have managed to allow access to iTunes through other software, please follow these instructions:

1) Sign out of the iTunes Store.

2) Quit the iTunes application.

3) Restart your computer.

4) Open iTunes.

5) Select Check for Available Downloads from the Store menu at the top of iTunes, (if you're unable to upgrade and are using iTunes 7, you'll choose Check for Purchases).

If you can't find this option, you can also click this link to do the same thing:

https://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/checkForPurchases

6) Enter your account name and password, then click Check. The missing item should begin downloading and appear in your Purchased playlist.

Please note that the iTunes Store cannot investigate every user's connection issue. Apple Discussions are another source of information about iTunes, where everyone from new users to professionals can interact and share their knowledge and experiences. You may find another user with the same operating system or ISP that may be able to help resolve this issue. You can find the iTunes discussions group at:

http://discussions.info.apple.com/itunes

If you are using a dial-up connection, you might consider downloading your purchases over a broadband connection, if you have access to one.
