MANY thanks for your input!
EVERYONE that I have been contacted by on the site has been WONDERFUL. Response to my question was very quick very caring, and most importantly, very accurate.
I'm going to surprise my grandson with the ipod Touch. I have his ipod backed-up to my Powerbook, so I'll be able to give him aal of his content on a new ipod. I'm already excited to see his face.
So I'll be back when I need help again, and I will be sure to refer everyone I know to ifixit.com!
Many thanks again,
