Re: nano and iPod "Color"

Upon first glance it would be safe to assume that the iPod nano is a "micro" version of the iPod "Color" models, and in a few ways this is a safe statement. Both systems use the "Clickwheel" (which places pressure sensitive navigation buttons underneath the scroll wheel), have color displays, have software that uses color for all interface elements and applications, use the "Myriad" font, and are capable of displaying photographs in addition to playing music and transporting files. At 3.5 inches tall, 1.6 inches wide, and 0.27 inches thick the iPod nano is both physically smaller, compared to 4.1 inches tall, 2.4 inches wide, and 0.75 inches thick for the iPod "Color" models, and holds less data on 2.0 GB or 4.0 GB of Flash Memory, compared to 20 GB, 30 GB, 40 GB, or 60 GB hard drives for the iPod "Color" models. However, there are also some important differences between the iPod nano and iPod "Color" models as well. Unlike the iPod "Color" models, the iPod nano lacks video out, and as a result, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera either. However, in addition to the calendar, contacts, and notes software from previous models, the iPod nano includes additional software functionality, such as a "Screen Lock" security feature, a stopwatch, and a "world clock".

What wrong when there is know sign of life on my ipod?


Make sure you have you user's manual. If you don't have it, go to Apple website.

Make sure the songs you are trying to add are in the format suggested in the user's manual - warning: WMA files are trouble for reasons I don't feel like explaining anymore.

If they are, then make sure that you still have enough memory left in this player.

If you do have enough memory, follow Apple's 5 R's:
These are for Nano, but they apply to all iPods:
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
installed.
â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.

What is the difference between the iPod nano and iPod mini?


The currently shipping iPod nano replaces the iPod mini. Both models use the "Clickwheel" (which places pressure sensitive navigation buttons underneath the scroll wheel) introduced with the iPod mini, but the similarities between the iPod mini and iPod nano end with the "Clickwheel". The iPod mini shipped in a colorful "ultra-portable (3.6 inch tall, 2.0 inch wide, 0.5 inch thick) lightweight anodized aluminum" case available in five stylish colors--silver, gold, pink, blue and green (four colors from February 23, 2005 to September 7, 2005 with gold no longer offered), each with a 1.67-inch "white backlit" monochrome LCD display. The iPod mini has either 4.0 GB or 6.0 GB hard drives to hold approximately 1,000 or 1,500 songs (encoded at 128-bit), respectively. The iPod nano, on the other hand, ships in a "impossibly small" 3.5 inch tall, 1.6 inch wide, and 0.27 inch thick "iBook white" or jet black and stainless steel case with a 1.5-inch "blue white backlit" 16-bit color LCD display. The iPod nano has either 2.0 GB or 4.0 GB of solid state Flash Memory and can hold approximately 500 or 1000 songs, respectively, in 128-Kbps AAC format and up to 25,000 "iPod nano-viewable" photographs

Can I view photos on my iPod photo/"Color"? nano?


Depending on the model, to view photos on your iPod photo/"Color", you either need to import photographs using Apple's iPod Camera Connector, or transfer images from your computer through iTunes 4.7 or higher to the iPod. For the current iPod U2 Special Edition "Color", iPod "Color" (20.0 GB), the version of the iPod photo (60 GB) introduced on February 23, 2005 and renamed iPod "Color" (60 GB) on June 28, 2005, as well as the discontinued iPod photo (30 GB), the simplest way to transfer photos from many digital cameras to your iPod is to purchase and use Apple's iPod Camera Connector (US$29). This device simply allows you to directly connect a digital camera to the camera connector and in turn connect the camera connector to the iPod "dock" port. Photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector are immediately viewable, with the exception of RAW format images and video clips. However, photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector cannot be immediately viewed as a slideshow with transitions. On versions of the iPod photo (40 GB, 60 GB) released prior to February 23, 2005, photos transferred directly from a digital camera using an iPod-compatible media reader are not immediately viewable, but photos transferred through iTunes 4.7 or higher, which converts photos into a "thumbnail" format, can be viewed on the iPod photo itself or displayed using the iPod photo connected to a TV or projector. The iPod nano, introduced September 7, 2005, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but as it lacks video out, it cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera. For information regarding the iPod nano and accessory compatibility, please refer to Apple Support

IPod nano and iPod shuffle


The iPod nano and iPod shuffle are both small--3.5 inches tall, 1.6 inches wide, and 0.27 inches thick for the iPod nano and 3.3 inches tall, 0.98 inches wide, and 0.33 inches thick for the iPod shuffle. The iPod nano and iPod shuffle both use solid state Flash Memory--2.0 GB or 4.0 GB for the iPod nano and 512 MB or 1.0 GB for the iPod shuffle. However, the similarities end with the dimensions and type of internal storage, as the iPod nano is designed as a tiny but "full featured" MP3 player, with more in common with the iPod "Color" models, with a few notable exceptions, and the iPod shuffle, on the other hand, was designed as a simple low cost MP3 player that lacks a display and can only play music and transport files.

How can I use iTunes to put photos on iPod nano?


"You can easily copy images from your computer to the iPod nano using photo sync in iTunes. Please note that you cannot import photos into iPod nano directly from a digital camera or media reader. If you connect an Apple iPod Camera Connector or Belkin Media Reader for iPod w/Dock Connector to iPod nano, you'll get a message on your iPod screen that says, ""The currently attached accessory is not supported by this iPod."" If you connect a Belkin Digital Camera Link for iPod w/ Dock Connector to iPod nano, you'll see a ""Do not disconnect"" message briefly, then the main iPod menu appears. For information on other iPod accessories that don't work with iPod nano, Some accessories that work with other iPod models won't work with iPod nano. Here are some items to note and the affected accessories: Photo Import iPod nano cannot import photos from an accessory (use iTunes to copy photos to iPod nano). It will not work with third-party card readers or with the Apple Camera Connector. If you connect such a device, you'll see an error message that displays for about a minute and reads, ?The currently attached accessory is not supported by this iPod.? Voice Recorders (Microphones) Like iPod mini, iPod nano does not work with third-party voice recorders. Apple iPod Remote Because iPod nano does not have a remote port, it won't work with any accessory that requires it, such as Apple iPod Remote. Headphones Port Location The headphones port on iPod nano is located on the bottom, therefore, it won't work with any third-party accessory that requires that this port be located on the top. No Video Out iPod nano does not support video out through the dock connector or the headphone port. iPod nano is not compatible with the Apple iPod AV Cable designed for iPod with color display (and iPod photo). If you need to use any of the above devices, you'll need to use an iPod model that supports the accessory. "
