Dont for get that if you are using an unpowered firewire cabel you need to plug your Ipod INTO TEH POWER TO COMPLETE THE UPGRADE. I forgot and though that I had blown it up.

Update of v 2.0.1 firmware on 30G iPod using Windows XP went very smoothly.

FYI for those who haven’t done it yet:

1)Download the software
2)Double click the setup file you just downloaded to install the software.
3)Reboot your computer
4)Place your iPod in the dock
5)Start the iPod Manager/Updater program

Some helpful hints that worked for me:
a)I did all my downloading and installing without the iPod in the dock(some people experienced trouble when rebooting with iPod in dock)

b)Once the iPod is in the dock and you start the updater, be patient and WAIT for it to recognize the iPod(The update button will initially be grayed out, but will become activated once it sees the iPod)

c)READ the updater as it’s doing the update and follow the instructions. (Your computer screen will read “Updating firmware please wait” or “Updating firmware please do not disconnect”).  When the whole process is completed it will let you know you may disconnect the iPod. Make sure you do it properly by stopping the device in Windows first of course.

d)I did NOT lose all of my MP3s already loaded on the iPod.  Updating firmware should not do that.  Restoring will. 

Not that it should matter much but, I have a 1.5Mhz AMD processor and the actual updating process took somewhere in the neighborhood of 2-5 minutes from start to finish.

No more skipping songs after playing only a portion of the file, Whoooo hoooo!!!!!

Good luck!

well, my 15gb is now (un)happily on its way back to the maker via Airborne Express. After attempting the update, I called tech service. they advised to let the battery drain and then try to reinstall after 24 hours.

after 24 hours, it was deader than dead. reset buttons did absolutely nothing. Its on its way back…hopefully I’ll get less of a lemon this time…

I also experienced the thing “cannot connect to ipod” and I just removed the check in enabled disk mode and rebooted the system…Hoala click the update until finished and the clicks between tracks are gone. Thank you Apple. I love my Ipod.

There should be a line at the bottom of the e-mails you receive that says, “To remove yourself from receiving further notifications from this thread, click here:” with a link after.  Just click it.

Hi, I have a 15 GB iPOD that refuses to unlock !!! I have tried to reset it but to no avail. I let the battery run out completely and did not use the ipod for 24 hours but when I placed it on the craddle the Lock sign appeared again.
I can only run it using the remote control.  Any suggestions before I update the software.  I use MMJB 8.0.
