If you play audiobooks on the iPod like any other type of audio file, but audiobooks (again, bookmarkable files), give you an extra option: go to the iPod’s Settings menu and select Audiobooks; this lets you choose a different speed for the playback. You can choose Faster or Slower if you want to change the speed of a droll or hyper reader; this plays the file back at a different speed, without changing the voice. You’ll notice some distortion, but in most cases this is not a problem.
You can also make this change as you’re listening to an audiobook. After it starts playing, press the Select button three times. Run your finger around the scroll wheel clockwise to change the speed to Faster; scroll the other way to return to Normal, or to change to Slower.

Take care.

  • Your answer did not apply to my question at all. If I am listening to a book and I missed what they said and I just want to repeat the last few sentences, how do I do that? Going into the settings and adjusting the speed just makes the reader speak faster or slower. I only want to repeat what they just said.

  • Never mind, I figured it out myself. I have to HOLD the back button down instead of just touching it.

How dow I clear and remove restrictions passcode I dont know what the passcode is and have 2 failed attempts

You can reset it using iTunes. Open iTunes, plug the iPod in using USB, then turn of the iPod, once it's off hold down the home and lock buttons for 10 seconds, then release the lock button while continuing to hold the home button. After a few seconds iTunes should detect the iPod. Then you should be able to restore the iPod back to factory defaults. Even if you forgot the password.

There are a couple of things for you to try. First off just a couple of notes, the "Sleep Button" is the button on top of your iPod and the "Home Button" is the button on the front of your iPod. huntermaggar.jpg So to fix your problem you first need to restore it. But first we need to get iTunes to recognize it.
1.You can try restarting it by holding the sleep button and the home button until the whole iPod reboots. (Usually around 10 seconds)
  • After that try to plug your iPod into your computer again and try to restore it.
2. Try to put your iPod into "DFU" mode.
  • With your iPod powered off and plugged into your computer (plug it in and then power it off)
  • Hold the sleep button for 3 seconds.
  • While continuing to hold the sleep button, hold the home button and sleep button for 10 seconds.
  • Let go of the sleep button, but keep holding the home button for another 30 seconds.
After that your iPod should be in DFU mode which is factory settings and you should be able to use it with iTunes.
And the next time you want to downgrade it you should check out this video. This is what I used to downgrade my iPod touch 2g.

Good luck!

    Hold down both the Power and Menu butons on the iPod for 10 seconds. These are the buttons located at the top left of the iPod and the lower center of the face of the iPod. The screen will go black, and then a symbol of a cable and a disc will appear, showing that it is in restore mode.

    Release both buttons. iTunes will automatically bring up a "Restore" button. Press the button.

    Wait until the restore process is complete

    Copy your files back onto your iPod from your backup on iTunes or just from the library if you did not back up the iPod first.

    Iphone 2g not starting back up after reboot..

    When the device is locked up like this hold down the lock and home buttons. After a few seconds the device will turn off, immediately let go of both buttons. Now press down and hold the home button. Hit the power/lock button one time. Continue holding the home button until the phone boots up. It will need to be connected to iTunes for recovery at this point.
