Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

30GB Ipod Video doesnt play videos

I had my Ipod for about 6-8 months when the videos randomly stopped working. I researched the problem and I'm not alone but have yet to find an answer that works. After selecting a video the screen comes up black and after a second the play arrow and battery meter show, but thats it. No sound, no video. I can fast forward to a screenshot but the video still will not play. As far as restarting and restoring; I have tried it all. Different types of videos, sizes and even purchased videos. I am currently still searching for a fix or even some kind of patch/hack. If you have any idea of how to fix this problem please let me know. Thank you.

    My videos will not play. The screen is minimized and it appears the video is stuck (there is no movement).

Hi,
Sometimes the videos will not play because they are not in the proper format. You can check the format by right clicking on the file. I assume that you know that because you watched videos before.

It could also be a circuit board problem. In that case you would have to replace the circuit board. Also, you could check the video output to make sure that you do not have TV output checked.

I have MA446LL/A Ipod 30GB black model A1136 it doesnt want play video files even i convert it to MP4 at AmtooMp4 video convertor


Have you used AmtooMp4 convertor before and been successful? It is possible that the video is not being encoded correctly and therefore the iPod can not read it.
I have used (and recommend) using Videora iPod Converter. It is really easy to use. After you convert the files, you should be able to add them to your iPod.
The link for Videora is: Videora


Hope this helps.

I have an older 30 gb video ipod and that worked jus fine but when i pluged in a newer ipod nano it doesnt connect and it does with a brand new 16 gb ipod touch. is there anyway to fix this problem?


When you synced to a newer version of iTunes, everything was fine, until you connected the nano and
the touch, which worked fine, and then you tried the 30 GB again and it would not work, right?

Upgrade the software in the 30GB, not with your original 30GB disks, but with newer disks supplied NOW
by Apple, since iTunes went to version 8.1.1 and everything should be back in sync.

Ipod classic works but no sound


This is common among the 30gb Video iPods. If you play your iPod on a Dock,
such as a iHome or other speaker device, for some reason, they like to take the
Mainboard out. Normally, if it's a headphone jack, the problem will start with
sound only playing on one side of the Headphones.

As a start, you can replace the headphone jack and see if it corrects your problem.
If not, you will need to replace the mainboard in your iPod.

Classic Ipod video playback problem


This is a response to all thoes with the problem of ipod videos stopping randomly and acting as though the video had ended. (please excuse any spelling or grammer errors that may be involved in this post)
I have reciently noticed alot of topics on this and other sites that had issues with the video on the ipod. After syncing a video that is a proper mp4 format, it seemed to work fine, it even began to play but after one or less minutes the video would stop playing and act as though it was finished and had reached it's end. It would happen at the exact same point every time and you could fast foreward past it and it would continue playing, only to find the problem in another spot a few minutes later. I had this problem with each and every video that I synced and could not play any of them, this problem irritated me and as I found out alot of others who had the same problem. I could find no solution that had yet been found after searching many sites that involve help with the ipod. After some research I soon found and solved my problem. The problem is that the ipod will only accept videos that have a video bitrate of less than 768 kbps. This is what causes our problem as stated above. This would mean that 512kbps would be the ideal for watching videos. (every video that had a video bitrate of 512 kbps (or lower) always worked and had no issues whatsoever) Only a few 768 kbps videos will work and some of them will not. So to fix the problem you need to find somthing that will reformat your video to a video bitrate of 512 kbps or lower. The current one that I use is called "Jodix free ipod video converter", this will change your favorite non mp4 videos into mp4s and just be sure to set the video bitrate on the converter to 512kbps or lower. Also use this program to change your already mp4s into a video bitrate of 512kbps or lower. (Just be sure to set the video bitrate to 512kbps or less by sliding the bar to lower quality for video.) This should make your videos continue playing for full enjoyment of your ipod. (with video) Please respond with any and all questions. Thank you for your time, I hope this is useful and solves the problem. Sorry for being long winded with my answers, I do this to ensure full understanding of my explination. /\/icho.

Help please...


Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step
