Q: When I turn on the iPod shuffle (in playlist order mode), it starts to play from where I left off. How can I get it to start to play from the beginning of my playlist? Thanks.

- Leon

A: Sure! The iPod shuffle can be instantly brought back to the beginning of its ordered playlist by simply press the “Play/Pause” button three times quickly. Find other neat shortcuts in our Complete Guide to the iPod shuffle.

Hi all
  I’ve been driven around the twist by new 80gb ipod video, i reinstalled itunes after a recent pc upgrade, firstly i bought a second hand 60gb video and had problems syncing music then it was a case of trying to restore it then finally getting corrupt disk problems so i took it back to the shop and got my cash back so then i went out and bought a brand new 80gb and im having the same problems also getting ipod error 1418 messages, “cannot read or write to this disk"messages and having major problems restoring and reinstalling, the only way i could restore it was on my laptop after installing itunes on that.
  Now im currently installing all my music on a removable HD so i can try getting my tunes on it through the laptop, god what a pollava.
  Is there a way i can sort all of this out before i go ape, as im not sure if its a pc problem, ipod problem or itunes one??
ps: i have reinstalled itunes a couple of times, ive updated the firmware on the pod and im running windows xp home.
  Really looking foreward to your replies.
  thanks in advance.

I have a 30g video ipod and have been trying to sync my outlook calendar to my ipod but everytime I try it tells me that it can not sync the calendar. Right now I only have a PC,can someone walk me through the steps.
