Forums: EQ settings, Display hack, Older iPodders, Intro thread

In this week’s dip into the iLounge Discussion Forums: although many iPod users prefer not to use the iPod’s equalizers, one reader has asked, “What Are Your Favorite EQ Settings?” Are you an EQ on or an EQ off kind of iPodder?

Some iPod owners have decided to ‘hack’ their iPods in order to change the “Do not disconnect” message - see what others have used to replace the default message. (Be careful: some customization may invalidate your warranty.)

One reader says that his sister believes he is too old to own an iPod at 47 - do you think the iPod crosses the generation gap, or is it a music device for younger audiences only? (If so, are the rest of us doomed to using cassette Walkmen forever?)

Along the lines of our long-running “Show us what you look like” thread: check out The Definitive “Introducing Myself” Thread. New to the forums? Then introduce yourself here!

I’ve used both Roxio and Magix software to create MP3s from vinyl. I’ve used the default settings and custom settings and the resulting MP3 files play back muffled—like listening through a pillow in my iTunes. The exact same MP3 file plays perfectly fine in Roxio’s Audio Central and in my Windows Media Player—it simply does not play back in iTunes. Any ideas?

while listening to my ipod on shuffle, i pressed the “next song” button and my ipod completely froze.  The play symbol is on as well as the backlight but my pod is not responding to anything, including a reset.  Has this happened to anyone else?  What do you suggest that i do, appart from sending it back to Apple?

Hi everyone, I have a 2 gen ipod. I cannot get my computer at home to recognize it. at the office I could plug into the desktop with the firwire & the little adaptor and it works great. At home I only have usb2 so I bought a dynex hub to go from firewire to usb, no good. Went to dev. mgr. & removed the usb devices, pnp found them & message said I was trying to connect a usb to a high speed usb2 but that this would just slow down my dl/ul speeds but it still did not recognize my ipod. If any one can tell me what i’m doing wrong I would be very appreciative. I didn’t know how dependent I was on this little device - it’s great! Please help if u can.
