Q: It seem that you are able to have multiple pictures attached to a single song in iTunes and cycle through them as you listen to the song. Is it possible to carry all these artwork files over to my iPod and view them all as you listen?

- Manny

A: Unfortunately, there is currently no iPod hardware or software which enables the display of multiple artwork files per track. The only way to view multiple photos while music is playing is, quite clearly, through normal pictures loaded into color iPods’ “Photos” feature.

As always, however, users are invited to provide feedback to Apple on their iPod feedback website.

I have been using my itunes for about 6 months now. And a few days ago an icon appeared saying that this is not the original itunes library ive been using with my ipod. But this is the Itunes library ive been using since day one with my ipod nano.So i tried uploading the songs again. I have 322 songs to upload but after 42 it stopped and an icon came up that said my ipod is not able to be read from or written to?
What do you suggest i should do?

I bought an iPod Nano today (replacing my iPod Mini) to go with the Nike Plus running shoes. Anyways, I went to plug in the Nano thinking iPod software is iPod software. After plugging it in, I got this little message in my system bar:

I ran chkdsk, tried running /f but it wouldn’t let me. Said I needed to restart and it would run before XP booted up. Long story short, chkdsk did nothing. Anybody have this problem / know what to do now?

My Nano is constantly flashing the “Do not disconnect.” screen. I ran the updator software, restored factory defaults. Now, the taskbar message is gone, but iTunes doesn’t recognize an iPod is connected.

I’ve added mpeg video files to my ipod. The video portion plays fine. I don’t get audio. Audio & Video works fine on the PC. Any suggestions of how I can get the audio portion to play on the ipod?

The iPod still doesn’t allow the user to browse songs, artists, etc. in a round robin manner.  For instance, if you have 10,000 songs on your iPod (I do), and you want to go to songs starting with later letters in the alphabet, then must first scroll through a, b,c d,..., and finally get to the last letters, r,s,t…x,y,z.  It would be a simple matter to add the ability to allow the user to go backwards from a to z: a,z,y,x,w,... 

The problem with Apple is that they don’t allow the user community to make suggestions like this to improve their product.
