    “When, oh dear lord, are they going to give the iPod a simple crossfade??”

    You mean you don’t carry a Vestax mixer and two iPods with you everywhere? Shame on you!

    My upgrade experience was not so good. Being on the road with only my mini and a USB cable (and a USB1.1 equipped laptop) I went ahead and d/l’d the upgrade, installed it on the laptop, rebooted as requested and then ran the installed program.  All seemed to go well but at the end I was instructed to unplug the mini from the USB port and plug in the charger to allow reflashing of the firmware.  Unfortunately I don’t have the charger with me so cannot do this. I am now stuck with a mini that won’t get past a screen which alternates between showing the apple logo and a graphic indicating that power should be applied.  No access to the mini itself is possible and it is 2 days before I get home to access my charger.  Apple should really give better documentation than they have for this I feel.  Urgghhh!

    Weeeeeell, the update actually made my iTUnes load up faster as well as made both me iPods connect faster.  Also now both of me iPods load up in the same iTunes.

    Finally after waiting over an hour to disconnect, i did it w/o the ipod telling me to.  The Apple logo appeared w/ the bar.  It did it’s thing and so far seems to be working well.

    hmm…is this happening to anyone else? (winxp)

    installed iTunes 4.5…no prob.
    installed the 2.2 software, no prob.
    the updater ran fine, but upon closing the updater window, itunes opened automatically and for the last half hour it’s been reloading most if not all of my music, as if I’d clicked “restore”, which I definitely did not.

    just me?

    Can anyone confirm or deny if the m4p to AIFF trick with Roxio Toast still works or not?

    Don’t install this firmware unless you can plug your ipod into the wall to complete the installation.  It won’t finish the update until you plug it into the wall.  I don’t remember any of the other updates requiring this step.

    itunes still won’t burn data discs!! arrrghhh.  after i burn data or mp3, nothing is recognized.  any ideas of what’s going on would be appreciated.

    Instead of using Roxio, you could just use iMovie and import the AAC - it will convert it into AIFF internally.

    > “I don’t have a gen1/2 iPod, but at lesat these users can stop griping. They got what they wanted: a new firmware for their model of the iPod.”

    There’s nothing new. It doesn’t even add support for their new Apple Lossless format.

    I’m going to keep my griping going.

    Anyone know how this affects recording quality with griffin italk and other mics? is it still limited to 8khz?

    I just installed the update for the iPod and it went well with no problems at all.  I haven’t checked my iPod yet because it is still charging.

    I keep my iPod on manual instead of auto sync.  When I hooked up the iPod to iTunes after upgrade, it did not default to auto-sync.  My iPod was still on manual sync.

    As for Data disk, I could burn Data Disk with the previous iTunes before this upgraded.  So maybe it depends on what type of burner you have on your computer.  I have a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA 4020B burner and have been able to burn Data disk since the last upgrade when my burner was recognized by iTunes.

    What does everyone think of the improved bass response with this release??

    The “OK to Disconnect” bug seems to be fixed. A Windows-formatted iPod is still not as snappy as a Mac-formatted one, but the screen does revert back to normal play.

    I can confirm that the distortion on EQ especially when using bass booster seems to be fix. Before this upgrade, that EQ was like listening to underwater sound. Bass reponse when no EQ is still the same though.

    “Don’t install this firmware unless you can plug your ipod into the wall to complete the installation. It won’t finish the update until you plug it into the wall…

    Huh?  Umm, wouldn’t it be wiser to render your comment as personal experience, instead of of making sound like fact?  I had no reason to plug the ipod into an outlet.  Nor have I ever heard anyone else mention it before. Please point me to the page where this method is documented.

    The fact is, you must stand on one foot while humming the Canadian national anthem for the update to complete.
