Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

Video Not Playing

Whenever I try to play a video (whether it is a converted video, or a video podcast or a trailer from the itunes store), it shows the play icon in the corner, but the screen goes blank and just freezes. I have to reset the ipod to get it to work again. I also hear clicking noises from the hard drive when it begins to play (although nothing comes on the screen). I have tried restoring my ipod, but it still doesn't work. My settings are set to "Ask" for TV out, and NTSC. I have tried it with "Off" for TV out as well. Everything else works fine, and the videos used to work fine as recently as 2 months ago.

Any clicking of a hard drive means physical damage. Have you ever dropped the Ipod? Is it still under the Apple care warranty? If your ipod has been dropped or received considerable shock, it's most likely effected the internal hard drive, especially to the point to where you can hear it?

go to

http://www.apple.com/support/

The back rear side of the ipod has a serial number. Enter it at the bottom of the page for the link provided. If the Ipod is still covered by the warranty and has NO signs of user fault, then I would take advantage of the warranty.


Hope this helps.

How can I delete old podcasts from my Nano?


You will need to plug you nano into your computer and open iTunes. Once iTunes has recognized your iPod, click on the iPods name. There should be a page with a picture of your iPod, at the top of that page there will be a tab labeled "Podcasts," click on it. On that page there will be a check box with a drop-down menu, this is where we will change your podcast settings. The drop-down menu controls which podcasts are synced to you iPod:
All - This will sync all of your podcasts whether played or unplayed 1,3,5,10 most recent - this syncs only the (x) most recently added podcasts to your iPod All unplayed - if you have not played the podcast yet iTunes will sync them to your iPod 1,3,5,10 most recent unplayed - syncs the (x) most recently added unplayed podcasts to your iPod 1,3,5,10 least recent unplayed - syncs the (x) oldest unplayed podcasts to your iPod all new - syncs all of the newest podcasts 1,3,5,10 most recent new - syncs the (x) most recent new podcasts 1,3,5,10 least recent new - syncs the (x) least recent new podcast
those last two are a bit confusing, basically if you add a lot of podcasts you can either get the (x) newest of that set or the (x) least newest (hope that makes sense).
The second drop-down menu controls whether those setting apply to every podcast, or only the ones that you select in the menu underneath that.jsimpsonjr_0.png

Music videos cant put them in ipod


step1
Locate videos. There are four main places where you can find legal videos intended for iPod use. The iTunes store (where videos can be directly downloaded) and video podcasts are certainly the most popular, but digital copies from DVDs as well as personal digital videos can also be put on the device.
  • Step 2 Import your videos into iTunes. If you have downloaded the videos from iTunes or have downloaded a video podcast from the service, this step has been done for you (as well as step 3), and you can proceed to step 4. However, if you are trying to put digital copies, or personal videos on the iPod, put all of the videos in a central folder on the desktop. Go to iTunes and select the "Add file to iTunes" to import the contents of your folder to the iTunes program.
  • Step 3 Convert non-iTunes files. iPods only work with MPEG-4 videos, so if you are uploading videos of other formats, such as AVI or WMV, they will need to be converted with the iTunes program. Highlight the videos you need to convert and right-click to pull up a sub-menu. Select "convert" to begin the process. Alternately, you can drag the files into the iTunes conversion queue, which is on the right side of the program. You will see a notice when your files are finished converting.
  • Step 4 Sync your iPod. When your new video files are ready, simply plug your iPod Classic into a USB port and then drag the video files you wish to put on your device over the iPod icon. The icon will then change to "syncing" status. Wait a few minutes while the videos are transferred. Once the icon has changed back to normal, simply press the eject button and unplug your iPod.

  • i recomend the arcsoft media converter 3 for a starter converter it will work just fine for 15 days

    Podcasts


    Greetings,
    As I understand it video podcasts will not work on the shuffle. However there are a ton of great audio podcasts that you can subscribe to free of charge from the iTunes store. Podcasts vary in length and mbs used. The podcasts I listen to are about an hour long. On a 1 gig shuffle you can fit about 26 hours of podcasts.
    Let me know if you have any more questions by commenting in this thread. Also please rate me well if this helped you.
    Take Care,
    -WN
