A Nano is a smaller model player. Usually they range in memroy size of 2 gig up to 8 gig. The units are smaller because they use flash memory rather than a hard drive. They were desinged to be a more cost effective unit than the standard size Ipod and there easier to carry around if you are using them for working out. The current nano model can play video which is a new feature to that line.

A Standard IPod contains a small hard drive and varries in size from 35 gig up to 160 gig. Most people can put their whole music library onto one. Thousands of songs and videos can be put onto one. If you have a Tivo and your PC is connected to it, you can put tv shows on it.

The shuffle is a smaller player. It contains 1 gig of flash memory. It has no display but the size of unit is nice to have for audio books, podcasts, or music.

The nice thing about Ipods over MP3 players is that most musicians in the world use ITunes to sell their music. You can buy one song at a time or whole CD worth of songs. You can take CDs, load them up in your computer and put them on your hard drive and transfer them to your Ipod. You can purchase music tunes for 99 cents a piece. Videos can be purchase for 1.99 a piece. Most Tv programs that are out there available for purchase on ITunes. You can use them on audible books as well.

You can download and subscribe to podcasts. Most are free but there are a few out there that are not. They cover a vast variety of subjects that interest people. I do a weekly podcast covering local news in the Seattle are for out of towners.

A standard MP3 play can read your CDs once there installed in the computer and converted to an MP3 format. Apple files are done in a different format called aac which is only compatible with there players. Some MP3 players can show video if they can accept MP4 files. You can download them to the player if you have a program that can convert them to MP4 format. If you need to purchase songs, you can go through Rapsody. They handle most of the MP3 material for players that are not Apple and have a large selection as well. Audible books uses just about every MP3 player out there.

How do you pair the 903 headset with my ipod touch?

To pair the Plantronics BackBeat 903 with an iPod Touch:

On the 903 headset:
With the headset powered off, press and hold the "Power/Pairing" button until the LED indicator flashes blue and red. This will put the 903 headset into pairing mode.

Use the iPod Touch menu to search for the headset and select 9xxBackBeat.

(If prompted, enter 0000 for the PIN code/passkey. Some devices also require you to accept the connection. Headset is paired when LED flashes blue.)

On the iPod Touch:
In Settings, choose General, Bluetooth, and turn Bluetooth on.

Choose the device on iPod Touch, then enter the PIN/Passkey 0000 (4 zeros).

After pairing the 903 and iPod Touch, the headset model may appear on the screen when you are viewing the audio or video playback controls. (You can "tap" to switch to a different audio output, such as the internal speaker)

Will not pair with ipod touch 2nd gen. Not in device list

Look, your headset is monaural. For voice communication it bears the HeadSet Profile (HSP) and HandsFree Profile (HFP) only. These bluetooth profiles are suitable for phone calls only. Your problem is that the iPod is not a phone, and, as such, it lacks these specific profiles. Buy stereo bluetooth headsets. There are plenty of models and makers out there. They bear the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) and Audio/Video Removte Control Profile (AVRCP), which are suitable for music streaming. Any of them are supposed to pair with your iPad.
Please, let me know if you need further informations.
Regards, Carlos

How do i get it to connect to my ipod

ok, this is a bit complicated of a matter so ill make it as simple as possible. First of all, the first generation iPod Touches DO NOT have bluetooth capability, so if your ipod is a first generation you cant use bluetooth. Second, the iPod must be running on the latest firmware, which can be updated through iTunes. Third, iPod Touches CANNOT pair with bluetooth headsets (such as the ones you use with a cell phone the go over one ear) however they CAN be paired with bluetooth HEADPHONES (go over your entire head to cover both ears) now assuming you meet the above criteria, the option for bluetooth is in Settings>General>Bluetooth On. place the device in pairing mode and it should be discovered. if it is not, you are using an incompatible Bluetooth Device.

Plug in your iPod Go to "My Computer"

Go to your iPod's drive (F for me)

(Make sure you can see all hidden folders (If you aren't sure go to My Computer, Tools menu, Folder Options, View Tab, and check Show hidden files and folders)

After that click iPod_Control
Click the folder called "Device"
And then change it from _locked, to _unlocked.

Ipod problem

Well first, to see if this is a simple problem, do a reset. Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps you! If it doesn't, you can go here for the best and affordable service for your ipod:

IPod touch not pairing with HBM-210 headset

It will never work. The profile is not included in the software. It is an exclusive function for the iPhone.
Review "iPhone, iPad, iPod touch: Supported Bluetooth pro?les" at the Apple web site.
I suffered the same pain after buying them.
