    Odd Problem with iPod Video 5.5 and iPod Classic

    Just odd that there are people that have classic iPods and don't have the issue. It probably had something to do with the firmware version on the device. Since these things have been discontinued for a while, I don't expect any product support from Bose.

    Line Out on 3G 64GB iPod Touch

    Does anyone know how to get true line out working with the 3G iPod Touch. I have two different line out adapters that I used with my 5G iPod Video, and neither of them work with the iPod Touch. No sound out the stereo, and sound out of the internal speakers. Andy

    3G 20 GB iPod HD Clicking noise

    I have a 3G 20GB iPod that started the dreaded HD clicking noise. Well, I decided to break down and buy a new HD for it. With the old HD in, the iPod would just hang when I turned it on and lock up. I couldn't do anything with it. The Mac wouldn't even recognize. I put the new HD in about...

    A coworker of mine just got a new iPod 60GB to replace a dying 40 GB HP iPod. HE gave the new iPod the same name as the old one. When he plugged it into his PC, the music synced to the new iPod, but iTunes claims the iPod has used up 40 GB of space, but his iTunes library is only 20GB big...

    The dreaded clicking HD noise...

    My wife's 3G 20 GB iPod is going through the dreaded clicking noise and the HD refuses to mount. I did the shake fix, by pulling the HD out and shaking it around and I got the iPod Update utility to recognize the iPod once, but it told me it could not mount the iPod. Since then I have not been...

    Bookmarking Audiobooks

    I have been using one of the two killer features of the iPod a lot lately, and that is bookmarking Audiobooks. (The other killer feature is the scroll wheel.) One thing I have been curious about is, do other brands of MP3 players, such as the RIO, Dell, Zen or iRiver support something like...
