Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

Hardware Issues So....basically in December I purchased a 30gb Video Ipod (white) and have been using it since. It connects up to my laptop fine, and I can transfer music. However, since I just got back from Uni I tried to put songs from my old computer on there...and encountered a few problems... 1) When I plug the Ipod in it finds the hardware, opens the find hardware wizard and asks me to search for software, but my ipod didnt come with a CD. But no matter what I search it comes up saying my hardware wont work properly and it doesn't come up as a hard drive. 2) I downloaded and installed itunes on the old computer and even that wont run. It says: "AppName: itunes.exe AppVer: ModName: unknown ModVer: Offset: 10001040" Now there isn't any reason this shouldn't work, I used my creative 20gb mp3 player on this computer no problem, and I'm certain that its specs match the requirements of Itunes. If anyone can help it'd be much appreciated as there is a good 1500 songs on my PC id love to add to my Ipod. Cheers.

Re: Hardware Issues

Try installing the latest version of iTunes (7.2). That may fix your issue. Also, your iPod won't show up as a hard drive unless you enable disk use in iTunes. Try going to for some more help.

No sound from my 30GB ipod in the car and Bose sound dock

It sounds like an issue with the internal motherboard and possibly the audio jack. I'd reccomend taking it into a local apple store to have them fix it or contacting them via their support website here. Also you may want to consider their price quotes vs purchasing a new one when you talk to them.

Transferring pics from ipod video, 30gb back to laptop

I don't think that is possible. Its a one way thing where you can only put pictures from your computer into the IPod.

If it does work, click on your Ipod in Itunes and go to the pictures folder and see if it will let you drag and drop them.

If it does then it work but ITunes doesn't work that way under normal situations.

Ipod video 5th gen issue with downloading music

You should try using a different USB cable as it's very possible the cable is damaged. If that's not the problem, the logic board is probably defective and you can either replace it if you're comfortable enough opening your iPod or sell the iPod listing the defects on eBay.
