I have an old 20G ipod and my fiance has a newer video ipod. We will be using them (one as a back up) to drive the music for our wedding. The venue will let us connect to their soundboard. They said we must provide the adapter, but won't tell us what kind of adapter we need. We obviously don't want to buy the wrong type.

Re: ipod connector for soundboard
There is honestly no way for anyone other then the venue to answer that question. They will need to tell you what kind of patch cord connector their soundboard will accept. If they can't tell you perhaps they can at least provide the model of the mixer board so you can look it up and find the information that way?

Yes, I just got this unit and installed it today. The reason for this is this unit isn't capable of playing the ipods. You have to put the music on a flash drive to use the usb function. Which to me wasn't a big deal because I only use my ipod in my car anyway. The bv9999bi is the newer model of this unit and can play ipods. But i wasn't going to send this one back to get that one cause then I would have to pay for reinstallation when I could just put the songs on a flash drive. I love this unit btw.
probably not... but you can try these: while the iPod is plugged in, toggle the hold switch on and off (slide it to hold, then slide it back again), then press and hold the "menu" button and the center button until you see the apple logo on the screen, if this doesn't fix it... try a different USB port (use one on the computer itself, not your keyboard or hub), if this doesn't work... restart your computer and make sure you have the latest updates for your computer, if this doesn't work... call apple at this link:
The iPod reset utility will reset your iPod shuffle back to it's factory settings. It works for the following shuffles: iPod shuffle (1st Generation) - iPod Software version 1.1.5, iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) - iPod Software version 1.0.3 The reset utility will fix the following issues. 1. The iPod won't play music and can't be restored using iTunes 2. iTunes won't see the iPod but you can see it under "My Computer" in windows or under Apple System Profiler on a Mac. 3. iPod shuffle (1st Generation) is identified as a device in "Recovery mode." iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) is identified as a "USB DFU device."
You have to have administrator privileges to run the restore software and it will wipe out all the information on the iPod (including all your music) and install factory software back onto it. System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9, or later, Win2k with sp4, Win XP, this won't work on Vista. Download the file for the program here: MAC http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102formac.html Windows http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102forwindows.html
Install the software onto your computer, plug your iPod into the USB port and run the reset program, it will ask for your permission to reset the iPod, answer yes and the process will proceed. After finishing the reset procedure then use iTunes or whatever software is used to access your iPod and load your music. Enjoy your toy!
If you do this through itunes, it should be okay. The trouble is everytime you want to update your ipod, you will need to connect it with itunes and itunes will need to have your existing library that you created for you ipod to perform a quick and troublefree update.
If you are going to get an external harddrive you will need to re-direct where itunes is saving your music and video files. Because itunes will be using your internal harddrive for the system files (that is where windows is), it will automatically save the music to your internal drive. I suggest reloding an updated version of itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/ here and when asked where to install it, redirect it from C:programfiles.......to your external harddrive. This way the itunes music folder will be on your external harddrive.
