I have an iPod Classic. Should I upgrade from iTunes 10.4 to iTunes 11?
I’ve hesitated updating from 10.4 to the later 10.x versions because of problems reported on the iPod Classic forums. But iTunes 11 looks to be a complete rewrite. I know that a number of my friends and readers have iPod Classics. If you have “bitten the bullet” and gone to iTunes 11, I’d love to know your experience. Did you have any problems? Does the updated iTunes work well with the classic? Please reply whether you have had problems or not, and let me know what operating system you are using.
I do have the option, when I do the upgrade, of using the Acronis “Try and Decide” feature to back out the change if it doesn’t work. Of course, that wouldn’t address the new iTunes corrupting the iPod Classic. To address that, I’d need to use Acronis to do an image backup of the iPod Classic, and I’m not sure that works (although CopyTrans does seem to have a product that works ($20)).
So what are your thoughts? Upgrade to iTunes 11 or not?
