  • Quote: Originally posted by Lupa 1. No 2. No 3. I ended up just reseting my iPod's software. 4. Mine didn't file a formal complaint though I did use some battery doing it. 5. Not really, though playing doom was kind of entertaining. 6. If yo…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Telomar Only counts as 1. Really each cycle is draining it 80% or more roughly. This may be a stupid question, but if I keep it always above 20%, does this mean that it will never count as being charged?
  • Quote: Originally posted by Telomar Only counts as 1. Really each cycle is draining it 80% or more roughly. Great, thanks.
  • That's some great info, thanks. If I plug my iPod into my computer as I do once a week to update podcasts (about 25 minutes), and then I plug it directly into the power adapter into an outlet to charge it as soon as I take it out of my computer, …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Xool Just like laptops, your iPod's battery gets dinged every time you charge it. By waiting 'til the battery is depleted you are basically extended the time between charges. Compare these scenarios: (1) You conne…
  • What's the story with the "Auto-Sync" technology?
  • Are we expecting the AwesomePod this Tuesday, too?
  • Quote: Originally posted by audiopollution Nope. The only way around it is to make yourself some smart playlists that are size-limited and have those automatically synced to the nano. Thanks. That's strange; you'd think they would have th…
  • Quote: Originally posted by userone I don't have a nano (yet) so I can't answer from personal experience. However go to Apple - Support on this page is a clickable short list: iPod Issues? These five steps (known as the five Rs) will con…
  • Well, it puts them in My Pictures in a folder called iPod Photo Cache or something similar. I would love it if I could just have it be in my original folder, or my external hard drive. Does anyone know how to switch the location of the iTunes phot…
  • Quote: Originally posted by JeffDM The Windows version of Apple software is usually smaller than the Mac version, so that surprises me. I don't know why they changed the backlight behavior. Have they changed anything crucial since Version …
  • Quote: Originally posted by JeffDM [B]Odd. They are nowhere nearly that large when downloaded. Apple changed that behavior with the 1.1 firmware for the 5G and nano. The file size surprised me, too. I'm on Windows, if that makes a d…
  • Quote: Originally posted by JeffDM I keep a few of the older versions just in case Apple changes something that I don't like. When Apple updated the nano and 5G firmwares, they supposedly removed the ability to hold down the menu key to turn on …
  • Quote: Originally posted by AgNuke1707 If you don't have an iPod, sure ... trash them. All they do is update the software on the iPod itself. If you do, you might want to keep the latest version just in case you need to restore the iPod for any …
  • Thanks. Do you think this is with the LCD backlight on? Probably not. If you were to watch a movie in the car, would you use the backlight? How much does it affect battery life?
  • Thank you for your help and quick responses. I'm definitely on board for another iPod. One quick new question: I have an Apple product that I want to return if I'm going to get a new iPod anyway. If I return it and (I assume) get some sort of st…
  • Quote: Originally posted by G_Warren I saw a genuine un-biased comparison on a TV program here in the UK, and the iPod came out top. Great! What did they think was better about it?
  • Quote: Originally posted by Flounder How are you getting that the zen screen is better from that? I'm confused The Zen has 262,144 colors, the iPod has 65,000 . Quote: It's the same reason I'm skeptical about the other claims, given tha…
  • Quote: Originally posted by BRussell I'm skeptical of some of those statements: In what way is the screen better in the Zen? And I doubt the battery is really longer-lasting. I believe they're the same batteries and same screens. If you need the …
