    My ipod doesn't play on the iHome either, but everything else works fine - still downloads, plays with headphones, plays with other speakers... just doesn't play on the iHome. The iHome radio still works, and the iPod PLAYS, but no sound comes out of iHome when iPod is connected. Thus, I think my problem is with iHome instead of iPod... any suggestions what to do there?

6th gen. nano has shuffle issues. plays same song over and over


The iPod's shuffle feature lets you randomize playback of albums, songs or even your entire music library. You may also find this feature useful if you want to listen to forgotten tracks in your library or discover songs you haven't listened to yet. Disabling the shuffle feature will return playback of a song list to its standard consecutive order. You can enable and disable the shuffle feature at any time.

Navigate to the main menu. Select "Settings." Scroll to the "Shuffle" option. Select "Songs" or "Albums." If you select "Songs," the iPod Classic will shuffle the songs on whatever song list you listen to. If you select "Albums," the iPod Classic will play all songs of an album you select in order and then randomly select another album. Navigate to the playlist or album to which you want to listen. Play a song to initiate the shuffle. b> iPod Nano and iPod Touch Tap the "Songs" icon on your nano home screen. If you are using an iPod Touch, open the "iPod" application. Navigate to the song list, playlist or album you want to play. Tap the "Shuffle" icon at the top of the list to activate the feature.

Songs will not play!


I AM THE ANTIMAC! (Get a Zune - or any other generic mp3 player)
Hrrmm, could it be the file format? iPod plays m4a files, so if they're wma or something like that, it won't work. Have you played the current songs on it before with any luck? Did it stop in the middle of a song, at the end of a song or did it not work at all? With what method did you get the music on there? Download (Free/at cost?), Ripped from CD (What format? Using what program?).

Help me please


First I'd try connecting it to your computer and waiting for itunes to load. Then click on your ipod shuffle on the left hand side under "devices" and under settings click on restore.

This will restore your shuffle to factory defaults.

Then try loading songs again and listen for music. Make sure the volume is at a sufficient level as well.

Certain songs on my iPod that I bought with iTunes just will not play when I upload them


Do they play ok in itunes?

Try resetting your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
