I am thinking about upgrading my 20GB iPod photo to the new 5th-generation iPod. I use the Apple Camera Connector with my iPod photo. Will this still work on the new iPod?

- Chris

A: Yes, the Apple Camera Connector works on the 5th-generation iPod in an identical fashion to how it works on the photo and color-screen 4th generation iPods.

As a reminder to others, no photo transfer solution works with the iPod nano.

My mini iPod has completely broken down and since it’s not under warrenty it has worked out cheaper to buy a new one altogether.  With the anticipation of my iPod arriving I want to know what to do next in terms of my current iTunes.  I want to know what the best and easiest way is to transport my current iTunes onto my new iPod?  I want to maintain all my playlists, play counters etc, so can I somehow link my new iPod up onto my old iTunes or do I need to remove the old iTunes to put on the new one which means starting all over again?

I’m just hoping someone will try and make a Camcorder Connector for the 5Gs. That’d be so useful.

Per the ‘building block’ playlists -
My Solution has been to assign numbers to every playslist in iTunes.  This serves to categorize different playlist varieties - 100s and 200s are for my listenable playlists, e.g. 105.0 is all classical music, 202.0 is an hour of Pink Floyd.  The numbers also let me place all of my building block and sorting playlists at lower numbers, (600s, 700s,...), where they stay out mof my way on the iPod at the bottom of my playlists list.
I use one playlist to take over a 35gig mass playlist to support all of the building blocks, and I’ve tried using the method described in the Answer from iLounge.  However, I thought that this scenario might be a possible culprit when my lists stopped updating on the iPod, so I put all of my building blocks back on the ipod.  The number system lets them be there, but out of the way and organized.
Best regards -

will there be any new features on any new ipods that will enable you to download whole movies?

i have a funny feeling this has been covered before and is probably a straightforward answer, but i can’t seem to find it…......

i subscribed to a couple of podcasts which i never got round to listening to, so i want to remove them. i’ve unsubsribed and deleted them so they’re not sitting in itunes but i can’t get them of my ipod, which means really they are just sitting there taking up space. i have about 100mb left on my 60gb 4th gen which could be filling up with something i’m actually going to listen to.

do i have to restore the ipod and then reload all my music back on? that seems to be my only suggestion at the moment!!!!
