    recently added movies not syncing to iPad Mini

    I'm having a new issue with my iTunes library, whereby I am unable to sync any newly added movies to my iPad Mini. These are DVD's that have been ripped using the same software as I have always used (Ripit) and are my own DVD's that I am simply making iTunes copies of for home use. They play...

    Lower volume when using EQ on iOS4 (3GS)

    Since uprgading to iOS4, I have noticed a particularly hefty drop in music volume through the iPod app when using the EQ. No matter which EQ I set it to (generally I set R & B for the bigger bass without losing the mids) the volume drops by about 20% (give or take). Set it to Flat or Off and...

    iPhone 4 lookalike case for 3GS?

    So this is a bit of a strange one, but I have to you think it likely that a random case-maker out there will make a case that is designed to make the 3G/3GS look like a fat iPhone 4? All it would take is to give it a metallic edge, a flat back and you're away laughing. Possible...

    :mad: Dropped the damn Classic in the toilet...luckily, it was pre-pee...:shake: Got it out quickly, it was in a case, but there was water in it, it was on and it immediately crapped itself. Dried it as well as I could, swung the water out (didn't want to shake it), made sure I didn;t turn...

    ITMs NZ now has movies!!

    Not only is this kinda cool, but also rather underwhelming - not a lot of titles available from what I could tell, but some were grossly overpriced! $NZ22.95 for a couple of movies I saw...more than they are selling for at shops on DVD (which can be easily ripped to iPod anyway). Cool to be...

    Logitech X-230 2.1 Speaker system

    I just got one of these sets for my Laptop, but thought I'd plug my Nano in and give it a whirl... I have to say: sounds great!! Nice and bassy with good mid-range and top-end sound. I have to put a disclaimer here: I am writing this in context of the price. I paid the princely sum of...

    Album art sometimes doesn't show

    After having a new Nano (8GB) for a couple of days, I've come across a bit of an issue: While playing on shuffle mode, the album art sometimes doesn't show up. If I go to Menu and "now playing" - the art shows up then displays in the main screen after a few seconds. It's about every 3rd or...
