The iPod mini Reaction Roundup

while i agree to some extent about the pricepoint, i dont think its for lack of apple wanting to knock it down. the hitachi drive being used is 1st generation. MSRP on the microdrive by itself is expected to be $499 when it ships. in that light, i think $250 for it plus a world-class music player is admirable.

the debate then becomes ‘did apple pick the wrong technology to make a competitive player?’

( i dont think so—i’ve already got my order in for a pink one for my fiance

How to burn a CD in iTunes

Asgar Ali—

The explanation of your problem is simple:

The iRock BLiNG CD/MP3 Player (and all CD/MP3 players that I’m aware of) does not support AAC encoding.  You will need to import to MP3 in order for the files to be readable by your CD/MP3 Player.

Alternatively, if you can convert your entire iTunes library back to MP3 from within iTunes by doing the following:

1)  In Preferences, change your Import settings to MP3.

2)  In the Library, select any songs you’d like converted.

3)  Right Click (Or CTRL-Click on a Mac) and select “Convert Selection to MP3.”

iPods for Windows: It's a good thing?

I’ll second that! It lasted a few generations too!
Seriously, Is it worth me considering an ipod?
I have XP/USB2.  Do you think I might get the little box to work?

The iPod mini Reaction Roundup

i like the fact that it’s small.  i just don’t like the price and the fact that for $50 more i could get 11 more Gigs.  for me it’s more logical to get the 15G iPod.  after there’s a price drop getting one is a good idea.

although i do not find the radio statoin npr interesting i can see the use in downloading talk or news programs.  so maybe an am/fm tuner wouldn’t be so bad.  but adding options that make the price skyrocket is silly.

I use my mp3 player with tuner to listen to NPR. It’s also nice to record good talks and news programs off the air so I can listen to them later. Also drama. Not everyone is interested exclusively in listening to pop songs or cheesy music 24/7.

Just give me longer battery power and an exterior that doesn’t scratch when I look at it the wrong way.

Removable batteries and a changeable face a la Nokia phones would be perfect.

i like the idea of a removable battery.  i just purchased a 40G iPod this past fall and i’m already saving for the $99 price tag for a battery replacement.  i agree with sene_ncb on his arguement on why the iPod does not needs all this “excess” stuff.  i think the little white box does just fine the way it is (except for the battery of course).  i bought a powerbook two weeks ago and love how i can transfer fileusing my iPod, i’m a graphic arts student.  the only thing i would change is maybe taking the casing(only) back to the 1G style.  my buddy has a 10G 1G iPod and i feel that his is more sturdy then mine.  on a side note…what would the point be to a fm tuner?  don’t you buy cds/download music to listen to what YOU want to listen to, not what some corporate owned DJ tells you what to listen to.  what the hell is the point of having an iPod if you’re gonna listen to the radio.  go buy a am/fm tuner with a headset if you want that.

How to burn a CD in iTunes

Since moving to the latest itunes v4.2 (wth AAC) encoding I have been unable to get my Irock Ibling to recognise MP3 CDs made from iTunes.  I have tried everything - altering the preferences, burning from the Finder etc. The genius bar Apple people suggested I bring my entire system to their store or try Toast.  Even the Ibling people could not help.  Has any had a similar problem.  Can anyone help ?  If you need more info about my problem, let me know

The iPod mini Reaction Roundup

Apple is going to strike a home run with this product.  I am buying a silver mini as soon as it comes out.  I only have a couple gigs of music I realy care to silten to plus with usb2 it is not a huge hassle to swap.  I am surprised that apple hasn’t advertised it more as a great audiobook player.  I know it is not the main reason people buy ipods but with audible and itunes audiobook support this is the perfect audiobook player.  Get 50 bucks off the ipod/mini if you sign up with audible for 15 bucks a month.  I certainly am.

How to create playlists in iTunes

When I first got my ipod the playlists showed up when I browse.  Now though I can’t get playlists that appear on itunes to download into my ipod and the playlists selection option no longer appears on my ipod.  Anyone had this happen before?  Solutions?

How to burn a CD in iTunes

I am having a frustrating time with Itunes! It is being very unpredicatble in the way it burns cds as it often aborts the burn by displaying “cancelling cd burn” and stopping before it has completed! any ideas?

“I already have most of the iPod Pro - but it’s called the iHP-140. Truly this is the Rolls Royce of players.”

40 GB and only 1,200 songs? iPod Pro yea right….
sorry a** peice of sh!t

I heard the iPod is actually bought from the portalplayer company. When I looked at there website they have only a music player and a photo+music player.

So I think Apple will not bring out an ipod with video until portalplayer releases a video player. And they have not yet done this. So I will keep watching their website to see when they release something new.

Whatever changes occur to the “next” series of iPods, when do you think, or better yet, what is Apples usual release dates for newer generation items? I am seriously interested in the next iPod. I own a 3G 40gig right now and the battery has gone to s**t in only 4 months (will not play for more than 2 hours under ANY circumstances.

Wishing for a play queue for iPod

The on the go play list is great.  Thanks to whoever suggested it.  I’m sorry about there not being an update for the old i-pods, but I’m sure apple has it’s reasons.  I don’t know what they are, but…Well…: ( Anyway,  I read one post that described the OTG playlist all wrong.  The way the OTG playlist works is you scroll through your tracks, and pick the songs you want when you find the one you want, you press and hold the select button.  That song is then placed in the OTG playlist.  YES, you can add songs while another song is playing.  The only problem I have is you can’t take it out of the playlist.  You have to erase the whole playlist.  You can’t do it one song at a time.  So, if you pick the wrong song.  You’re hosed unless you decide you want to that song now, or unless you are willing to erase all the other songs, and start over.  The OTG also goes away if your battery goes dead.  Other then that, I haven’t noticed any other problems.  After reading these posts I’ve decided to do some experimenting.  I didn’t know that the old I-pods didn’t have the OTG feature.  Well, I’ll post here if I find anything else.  If anyone has any questions, or requests, let me.

Stupid people exist everywhere in the world. When a PDA comes out with a 4gig flash it will wipe out the IPOD completely. COMPLETELY

There’s nothing wrong with a Bush radio. It does everything the adverts for it say it does.

How to burn a CD in iTunes

Make sure that while you are arranging your playlist, the SHUFFLE button is OFF.  (Bottom right of the window).

Then arrange your songs properly, and burn the CD with SHUFFLE OFF still.

Hope that helps.
