    Where to buy a Fiio L11 or a decent alternative? (Anyone have one for sale?)

    Hi I already own one of these but I could really do with a second one to keep in the car permanently. It's a great little gadget, but it always seems to be where I'm not! Unfortunately though it has been discontinued for a while and I can't find one to buy anywhere. Has anyone seen one for...

    Looking for a multi USB car charger which will also charge an iPod Classic 160GB

    Hi all I will soon be doing a lot of travelling and so have been looking for a good quality USB hub that you plug into the car's cigarette lighter. I found a few on Amazon that got good reviews, but they said they are not compatible with the iPod Classic. Not sure why. But that's one of the...

    Why is non-embedded artwork taking up 500% more space on iPod Classic

    Hi all Following on from this thread: http://forums.ilounge.com/ipod-classic-legacy-ipods/280741-how-tell-if-my-mp3s-have-embedded-artwork.html If anyone has a moment (anyone who does not embed artwork that is), would you mind comparing your PC Hard Drive and iPod in terms of how much space...

    How to tell if my mp3s have embedded artwork?

    Hi all I loaded a bunch of albums onto my iPod Classic using Foobar's iPod Manager (foo_dop). The mp3s on my PC do NOT have artwork embedded. Rather, there is a cover.jpg file per album stored in the folder along with the mp3s. Everything is displaying fine on the iPod, so there is no issue as...

    Charging iPod Classic 160GB - can I use any USB wall plug?

    Hi all I have a Sony Experia phone and it came with a wall plug (with USB port) for charging. I also use it to charge my iPod Classic. I've always done it without a thought, until reading something today which made me wonder if I'm doing the right thing? Do I need to check the specs of the...

    5 Strange Replies from sdrthsrthen

    Hi I got 5 email notifications this afternoon for 5 different threads that I started. All of them were from the same person: sdrthsrthen. They were all quite meaningless (i.e. just repeated the end of my post and things like that). I've just logged in and none of the threads are showing...

    Latest Ipod Classic 7th Gens have different firmware and hardware?

    Hi all I've just recently discovered this.... It was when someone told me that they could remove the EU Vol Limit restriction on their Classic 7th Gen (I cannot on mine) that I dug further and found this out. See this...

    Can an iPod Classic show Track Number tags?

    Hi all I'm new to iPods so please forgive the newbie question! I've just uploaded a few albums and I see that the tracks are listed with no number. They ARE in the correct order. So that's all good. But if I could choose, I would have the track number (from metadata) displayed as well. Is...

    Will a new Ipod Classic sitting on the shelf for a year or two have problems?

    Hi all If anyone can help me on this one ASAP I would appreciate it hugely... I'm going to see an iPod Classic later today which someone is selling locally. They said they bought it but never used it. As such, it has been sitting unused (and "as new") for a year or two. Is there likely to...

    Is there a way to check whether an iPod has been used?

    Hi all There is someone selling an Ipod Classic 160gb. They say they bought it with good intentions of ripping/loading CDs, but never got round to it and as such it is pretty much as new and has never had songs loaded onto it. Is there any way I would be bale to check the iPod to see whether...

    Where to find latest (and history of) Firmware Updates for Classic 160GB?

    Hi Sorry for the recent influx of questions. Will try to quieten down after this one. I'm just curious to know what the latest Firmware for the Classic 160GB is. Also, how often are new FM updates released for this model? What would be really handy to see is a list of all updates since...

    ReplayGain / Soundcheck on UK Ipod CLassic 160Gb... Too quiet?

    Hi again Still doing some research before heading out to buy my Ipod and making a start on ripping my CD collection. One of the things I was planning to do was write ReplayGain tags for my tracks. I'll be using Foobar Ipod Manager, and this has a feature which converts RG data to Soundcheck...

    iPod Classic: General Questions (Album Art, Capacity, Bitrate, etc.)

    Hi all I've tried searching but most of the threads relating to this seem quite old. 1. Please could someone tell me what the ideal size for album artwork on an Ipod Classic 160gb is? Not for iTunes or anything like that... Just and only for the Ipod. 2. If possible I would prefer...

    How is genre displayed on the iPod Classic?

    Hi all I am getting ready to start ripping my music collection to mp3 for an iPod Classic I have not bought yet.... All my music is orgnaised by very specific genres, some of which are quite long. I'm deciding whether or not to truncate them, but it is hard to decide without having an iPod in...

    Exporting Playlists to an Ipod Classic (without iTunes)

    Hi all I plan to use Foobar2000 as my iPod Manager. Haven't actually bought the iPod yet, but will soon be getting a Classic 160gb and am doing a bit of research now.... What I would like to know is whether you can export playlists made in Foobar directly to an iPod (Classic 160gb), using...
