Illegal Downloading Hurting Music Sales

Record Exec : “I don’t understand it! We’ve spent the past 50 years creating a ‘youth culture’  that’s rebellious and anti-authoritarian so they’d buy the music of our carefully groomed ‘rebels’, and now these kids are disobeying the law!”

iPod Software 2.0.1 Update Released

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!

Warning: Don't buy an European iPod, its volume is too low

Hi all,

I’ve installed update 2.0.1 yesterday and alleluia! the sound cap seems to be off (or set much higher). I don’t have to listen to my iPod at 95% as before. Around 60%, it is already more than ok.

For info, I downloaded the update through software update, so if there was meant to be any restrictions for Europe, it would have picked it up.

This closes this issue, doesn’t it?

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

VW Audio Interface Adapter

a cassette works in my wife’s 2001 Jetta TDI.  We have the “regular” single CD—not the high end one.

The sound is ok, but I hate all of the wires.  Still, my iTrip fuzzes out if I go anywhere with radio signals of decent strength.  I think for long trips, until I get a way to hard wire it into the system, a cassette is how I’ll go.

VW Audio Interface Adapter

Some of the newer head units have “smart” features like auto rewind that interfere with the normal operation of a cassette audio adapter. I’m pretty sure the stock VW head units have this feature/problem (although I’ve never tried a cassette adapter in mine).

Zip your iPod, new case announced

So if the resellers are going to have them in 7 to 14 days…. when do you think I’ll be able to get one?  Any chance I could get one from you directly?  Would that be faster?  Only reason I ask is because I’m going to be traveling for 4 months, and I’m really going to need the iskin.  If you need a tester (I’d pay for the iskin of course) or if you could get it to me faster by contacting me directly, you can reach me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

—Thanks for all your help,

I get about 10-15 free CDs a week 0 but I still buy around 100 or so a year - no surprise, it’s mostly older stuff…HMMM, maybe that’s the issue?  Bad music?  I think…

Does the update work for Windows 98SE?

If not Im gonna have to update my system. Also will updating the firmware delete any mp3s? (Im guessing not, but would really hate to lose my music)

Apple Store: Refurbished 20GB iPod for $299

I went ahead and took the plung.
The guy on the phone says they have the same exact warranty “new” ones have, and I won’t be able to tell the difference between this one and the new one.  (i.e. no scratches, wierd problems etc)

I bought this one because I heard that the old ipaq’s have longer battery life than the new ones.

It cost me $321.71.

Zip your iPod, new case announced

iSkin: we have them in our hands now and are preparing our website so that our resellers can order and start the process of offering iSkin to their customers. Should be within 7 to 14 days.

Maclear -zip- we had a small problem in material but that has been resolved yesterday and today they will start up production again and before the week is out we will start to ship.

China offers many opportunities to a foreign company like ours but sometimes we have to deal with suppliers trying to change material on us, when this happens we put a stop to everything to get it sorted out and if necessary have material flown in to us from Japan or Taiwan or Germany. That is expensive but we are not prepare to make our product with nothing but the best

“Another thing, who buys 29 cd’s a year?”

I know I’ve purchased over 50 in the past year from Amazon alone : )

Make better music and the sales will rise. The music in the last 4 or 5 years has been nothing but garbage ( for lack of better words ). Another thing, who buys 29 cd’s a year? my god, that’s almost 2 albums per month. Im not that eratic with my purchases.

Another thing, if they have so little money how come mariah carey got 80 million +24 million after her break down. Its a bunch of crock.
