Largest iPod User Group launched

Join the largest iPod user group in the world. (Over 19,000 members)

iLounge has been planning to develop an online iPod User Group since February 2004. Now, having received encouraging words and support from Mac/iPod author Chris Breen, and Chuck Joiner, the man Chris named ‘Grand Poobah’ of Macintosh User Groups, we’ve decided to go for it. With over 19,000 members in our Forums (the largest online community of iPod owners worldwide) iLounge has a “built-in audience,” as Chuck has put it, and we always want to find ways to improve the lives of our members.

How do you become a member?

Good news. If you’re a registered member of the iLounge forums, you’re already a member of the free iPod User Group - the largest iPod User Group in the world. If you’re not yet a member of the forums, join up and become a part of the iPod User Group.

I have a 3rd generation Ipod and I have disabled the automatic libraries update because I dont want to clog up my computer with music.  Basically I load a song on my library, load it onto my machine, and erase it from my library.  Here’s the thing:  I want to create a playlist of old school hip-hop (no problem), and burn it onto a CD to give to some one(BIG PROBLEM!).  Can anyone give me some insight into solving this problem?  Thanks

hi. umm, not to change the subject or anything, but my computer crashed and I didn’t back up my music (dumb, I know). So now since my itunes library is empty, updating my ipod will wipe out all my songs. Is there any way that i could get the songs transferred from my ipod TO my itunes library? Help would be very much appreciated. thanks! :)

I have a Sony DSLR, a 30GB ipod & a mac G%. I transferred some RAW (Sony ARW) photo files from my camera to the ipod..but then I inadvertently deleted them. I ran ImageRecall & it recovered the photos, but I can’t open the files. I have tried a number of other photo recovery applications but to no avail. Please help!

I own an 60GB iPod A1099 and I cannot turn it off. pause-play button only turns off screen background light. I suspect the wheel is damaged. Have you ever had the same problem with your iPods, and how did you fix it?

I have a 30 GB iPod.
The only loaded 476 MB of songs on it & have used it primarily for temporary photo storage. on my last trip, I ran out of space for photos.
I have downloaded the photos & deleted them from the iPod. I checked to the best of my ability, & find that I have only 826.8 MB available!
Where are the other 28+ GB?
I need more space for photo storage for my trip to Australia starting in a week!

I have a new computer and cannot synch my iPod with the new computer.  I download songs to the new computer, but they wont’t synch to the iPod. I get the message to erase my iPod and then synch.  I don’t want to do that because I will lose the songs I put on the iPod from the old computer.  I don’t have the old computer because it was replaced under warranty.  What can I do????

I am having problems moving music to an external hard drive.  Once I import the CD, it appears in Itunes but does not appear in the external drive.  HELP

I purchased an ipod touch rather impulsively because I had heard that you could get music from any website, not just itunes. I also don’t own a computer so I had to use someone elses to sync my unit and carry out the initial setup. I put itunes on the unit as far as I know, but I tried to download a ripped cd to the ipod and it would not drag and drop to the removable disc or would it sync to my ipod to put the music on my unit. Is there anything I can do to restore my freedom to get songs on my own without having to use the computer that I synced with initially. Help please.

I have a large collection of (mostly) classical music, so to me an Album is the 4 movements of a symphony, or whatever, but these exist as 4 files. I have an iPod Touch: am I being thick in failing to find a way of playing whole albums from my collection at random? I can get it to do that with tracks, I’ve tried consolidating into Albums, to no avail. The annoying thing is that iTunes allows me to do this, which is why I bought the iPod, assuming it would as well.
A very disillusioned Apple customer!
