Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

Does anyone think if the Equalizer presets of iPod sufficient?

Does anyone think if the Equalizer presets of iPod works fine? I have had my current iPod Video Black for almost 1.5 years, and I have never been satisfied with its sound. It's almost impossible to find a perfect EQ preset that could go well with all types of music I listen to. Whenever I need some bass for a song, I simply set the EQ to Loudness, Rock, R&B or whatever. But, especially when the shuffle is on, the EQ preset which I previously set distorts the sound. So, I don't want to struggle with changing EQ presets all the time; furthermore, it isn't good for the battery either. For once, I've tried to arrange appropriate EQ settings for each song independently on iTunes, but it didn't work either. I don't want to shell out huge amounts of money for those "Hi-end" earphones. I am wondering if anyone has the same problem, and what could be the best solution for that. Regards

Hrm..... This is a tough issue. I have experienced this as well. I can't really solve the problem, I can only share what I have done personally to deal with this. Hope this helps. I have settled on: 1. Leave the iPod's EQ on default and don't change it. 2. Change certain songs that must have EQ help individually. 3. Set the maximum volume setting on the iPod to the highest setting. 4. Assess where and how I listen to music on my iPod and plan to get headphones that work with my listening style. 5. Get better headphones. They don't have to be expensive to produce good sound quality. 6. If you connect it to a speaker dock or a stereo system use it's built in EQ/DSP.

I have one i2! which I used to use with an iPod, but now I tried to use it with an iPhone and with an iPad, and the USB doesn't show the charging capability any more. Does the i2! not work with iPhone and...

All iPhones and iPad's charge with a USB cable. Everybody knows that. What moest people don't know is that it's a bit more technical then that. Every USB port has an electrical voltage of 5 Volts. The voltage of a electrical socket is in Europe 230 or 240 Volts, in America it is (i think) 110 Volts. In a car there is a voltage of 12 Volt. An adapter (charger) will convert a higher voltage to the 5Volt needed for the USB-port. Now i did talk about voltage, but not about current. The current is the amount of electricity running through the device. An old ipod can charge with a current of about 700mA (milli Ampere). Newer iPod's and all iPhone's need 1000mA (or 1A = 1 Ampere). An iPad needs even more. The largest component inside an iPad is the battery. It would take too long to charge this large battery at 1000mA (1A) so it needs 2100mA (2,1 A). If you check the label or the printed information on your FM-transmitter you will see the Ampere rate will we too low, and that's why your other devices won't charge. I suggest you to go to a store and buy a compatible charger or FM-transmitter.

OMFG i cant find my ipod anyone have somehow to find it?

Check your options at the support site or go the a Genius Bar at an Apple Store. Some current generation models have a "Find my iPod" function that works with the GPS in the unit when it's turned on and in range but it's not all that specific, might pin it down to a block or building rather than a room; I think 3GS iPhones can also be erased remotely to get rid of sensitive personal info, but I don't think you can do that with a Touch.

Use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

I have a first gen ipod shuffle and I want to change the EQ

You posted this question under the iPod shuffle, so understand that these instructions are only good for the iPod shuffle:

Here is a link to your manual:

You will notice on. p18, that iTunes has an icon bar associated with the iPod shuffle - the second icon looks like a level indicator - press this button and change the bass, treble, etc.

Good luck!

Reset and register ipod

All you have to do is to restore your ipod to its original settings, which will not erase the preset settings for the hard drive. Do this by clicking on the restore button on the main ipod menu and it should work normally after that.

Locked iPod

Use Itunes, and Restore to factory settings. this will remove any lock codes. It will also erase any files currently on the Ipod (Music or otherwise). Then just Resync with Itunes, and you should be back in buisness

No you have to have that special cable which takes all 3 signals (video, left audio and right audio) out of the headphone jack and splits them into 3 separate cables for the TV.

This one here will do the trick:
