Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

160 gb ipod problem

I was using it in my logitech stereo and I tried changing the song, but nothing happened. The screen changed, but it wasn't playing. It stayed at 0 time elapsed despite it saying it was playing in the upper right. After that it just went downhill, its responses got sluggish and eventually nonexistant. I managed to turn it off, but now it doesn't turn back on. The screen is black but I can hear the hard drive spinning or something in it, so it must not fully off. And it can't be good to be spinning for that long. If there is any way to fix this short of replacing it I'd appreciate any help. I had 10gigs or so of music on there that is no longer on our computer or in our house... :(

    I just looked back (I plugged it back into the stereo, though maybe I should let the battery empty) and it's a pure white screen now. wtf?

    Just showed it to my dad and he told me you could reset them. He looked it up and tried it out. Alakazam, music saved, crisis averted.

IPOD SHUFFLE 1 GB SECOND GENERATION DOESN'T SEEM TO BE SYNCING PROPERLY AS SONGS JUMP TO THE NEXT SONG AFTER PLAYING A PERCENTAGE OF A SONG. tHIS PROBLEM SEEMS SOMEWHAT RANDOM BUT WITH HIGH FREQUENCY....


You will need to wipe it clean then put all your songs back into it. Try using a different computer and then put iTunes on it and that should erase it all and then just load your Ipod back up with your music. What happens is that if the Ipod can't read the song, it stutters, tries to play that part, and sometimes skips songs.

Scratchy audio


If this happens only for one or two songs then its the audio file corrupt, else if it happens for all the songs then try another headset. Normally the ipod headsets gets worn out quickly.

Thankyou

Green and ORANGE? orange indicates the iPod is searching for music.
UNDERSTAND this- when you play music in the iTunes app., you are hearing the music in your computer not the iPod.
1) Install the latest iTunes application.
2) Do a restore
3) sync your iPod

I can't hear the songs in ipod


Green and orange?? Sounds like you need to restore your iPod.
Understand this: iTunes plays what is on the computer, NOT the iPod.

New Ipod Shuffle is not loading songs


Hi,
Generally you do not have to change the drive letter. There is a 'shuffle restore' program from Apple that you can download for free. Using this to restore your iPod will set it back to factory conditions. Do you have the latest version of iTunes on your computer? If not, you might want to try that also. Have you tried dragging your playlist into the Shuffle? I find that it helps with my shuffle to create playlists and have it fill out of them. That way I can change the playlist every day. Works for me. Hope that helps.
