I got the pink iPod mini nearly 3 weeks ago and I love it! It plays CD quality music and is so slim and small! I have ordered a case for it and that should come today or tomorrow.

My I-pod mini is displaying an icon I have not seen before. It is a picture of a frowning I-pod with a yellow yield sign containing an exclaimation point. Has anybody seen this before? What does it mean? And how can I go about fixing the situation? Any knowledge would be greatful.

my itunes has more songs than my ipod mini can hold.  now, all my playlists that are on itunes and formerly on my mini have been replaced by one giant playlist on my mini.  How do I get my playlists back on my mini?

p.s. anythoughts on the adapters that allow you to play your ipod through your fm radio?  the one that is connected to an automatic charger for the lighter in your car seems handy but can you take it elsewhere besides your car?

I LOVE my iPod Mini.  I got it for my 14th birthday about a month ago and I am hardly ever seen w/o it.  I lov to just put it on shuffle and listen- it really makes long bus trips for school field trips fly by.  I also would highly recommend downloading iDirectionz- it is like a tiny little mapquest for your iPod- you use it on your computer and it downloads dirctions to your ipod.  I love the color- mine’s blue and it just looks cool.  There’s a 14-year-old computer geek’s opinion on the 4GB iPod Mini

I received an ipod mini as a gift at Christmas but rarely use it. When I charge the battery it loses it’s charge in about an hour. I went to the Apple web site and even though it is still under warranty, they want to charge $30 for S/H. How do I get it to hold a charge?

all what you need to do is just press and hold the “Select and Menu” buttons for at least 6 second ,until the apple logo appears :) enjoy!
