Got the 30gb video for x-mas. Haven’t had much time to get things on it yet. Music seemed easy enough. Wouldn’t let me put music on that came from kazaa, limewire (i.e. stolen). Don’t know if I have to change files from mpeg to mp3 myself or what. People say it works. CASES!!!!!!!!!! Check out agent 18 videoshield. I hear good things and will get one myself. Just got kensington dock/charger for home and kensington fm transmitter/charger for car.

About music from kazaa, limewire. As I mentioned before, it won’t go on my ipod 30gb with video. It allowed it to be sent from windows media to itunes library, but thats it, won’t convert it to my ipod. Do I have to change it from .wma to .mp3 myself? Any helpers out there? Thanks, JY

Happy New Year Everybody, ooooooo yaaaaaa
I just acquired me my very first ipod video black yesterday. What an amazing piece of technology: simpliciplity, elegance combined with great functionality, Apple blows me out of the water with this product. Ok Ok, down to business.  Does anyone know the longeviety and durabaility of the ipod’s harddrive and mechenism? Also, what is a good software to use for windows (i know what u are thinking)to convert movies to ipod mpeg4. Here is my email address if anyone wants to reply: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Here’s a brief rundown on various posts here regarding new users (like myself) and the iPod 30GB experience with Windows OEM XP2 Home.  I was initally having a “problem” with the PC seeing the iPod. The iPod itself was on but “stuck” in the Greek language. Nothing was happening and re-installed the CD software several times.  Everything is working fine now…turns out your iPod won’t work and won’t be seen by the software until it charges up to about 50%.  Hope this helps those of you still struggling.

Alas, I cannot download the SNL skit Chronicles of Narnia from the iTunes music store in Canada due to restrictions. I’ve combed the web, but no one is posting the .m4v iPod download separately. Any idea where I could pick this up? It’s free from iTunes in the US.

Ok, if anyone that could answer these questions it would be a great help.
1. How can i download musi videos or just any videos from Limewire to my ipod?

2. I have the itrip and it doesnt seem to be picking up any of the stations, it says i can turn the light on on the itrip but i havent seen the light since i bought the thing any suggestions?  Is it broke because i bought it brand new.
