Hi
iPods do not come with FM tuners. FM tuners can be bought and added on as an extra feature, but this is a third party device, not an iPod device.

Generally, when you connect the third party FM tuner to the iPod, the iPod will recognize it and you can use the 3rd party FM tuner to change stations.

If you do not have the FM tuner to connect to the iPod, the individual that sold you the iPod did not include the FM tuner to connect to the the iPod. In that case, the Menu will still list the FM tuner, but there is no device to connect to the iPod.

I have an ipod classic 160gb and i go under settings/main menu and i have radio checked isnt it supposed too??


Do you mean that you don't have access to the radio because you need the optional radio piece which connects to the bottom of the device if you wish to use the radio. You can either purchase the radio device or go without radio.

My Ipod Classic 160GB has no radio


The iPod Classic OS is same as the Nano. However, it looks to be so close as to come with the same settings checks off. The code to run the FM tuner is on the Classic and should have been disabled but Apple must have forgotten to turn it off.

FM Radio was erased from the MP 3


OK this seems to easy a fix for you, but try it.
* In the main menu where it lists your options (and where FM Radio would be) press the 'Menu' button on your Microphoto (bottom right button) and there is an option to 'Configure Menu' and in there should be the option to show FM Radio again. Hope that helps you.

I have a similar, but different problem, so ill list below, maybe it will help someone out.

i also replaced the (broken) 8gb microdrive with 8gb compact flash in my Zen Microphoto, which worked flawlessly! BTW i bought the A-Data 'SPEEDY CF 8GB' from newegg.com.

My FM Radio still shows up, but only gets MONO sound on the Right channel, its very frustrating. i took it all apart again and made sure no connections were loose or broken, but everything seems perfect. i believe it to be a firmware issue, i think ill try to roll back the drivers. im using firmware 1.31.01.

its just annoying to have to roll back to Media Player 10 everytime just to install the firmware and have windows properly communicate with the zen... :[

Iriver e10 how to record radio


http://www.osnews.com/story/17860/Review:_The_OGG-Compatible_iRiver_E10

After you long press the right arrow button the special menu appears: Record, Saved FM Recording, FM Recording Quality, Save Preset, Stereo/Mono, Auto preset, Tuner region. The FM Radio works very well, it has amazing reception compared to cellphones with FM support, but it won't continue playback while you are reading a text file. You must stay in the FM app to have it activated.

No FM Radio Available


Hi fitx-64

Every where you site this model on the web, it has an inbuilt FM tuner... you not even having that option is really weird. I take it you have been through the manual to see what is what? :)

There is a firmware upgrade for it here you could do that first and see how you go.

If that does not fix it, I suggest you take it to a Sony service center. I am sure they willl exchange it for you.

No FM Tuner Option


The FM radio feature did not come standard on all HDD1600 models - mostly they were on the European instead of the US variants - unfortunately, they did not consider this when they printed the manuals in Europe
