Q: I’ve lost the CD that came with my iPod. I no longer have the file ipodsetup.exe, which I’m now being asked to find. I tried getting the file from the Apple website, but I can’t find it. Where can I get the file?

A: No worries. In fact, we usually recommend new iPod users bypass the CD altogether, as it is often the case that the CD’s contents are already out of date when the consumer purchases the iPod.

Everything you need to install a new iPod – including the iPodSetup.exe you’re looking for – can be obtained by downloading the latest version of iTunes at www.itunes.com, and the latest iPod Software Updater from www.apple.com/ipod/download. Enjoy!
