Classic iPod owners' frustration with Apple makes headlines

While some people are accepting of Apple’s decision, a lot of us feel differently.  A suggestion for those of you who feel ripped off and forgotten-Let Apple know that you want the new features for the “classic” iPods by writing a review of the iPods both old and new on Amazon.com and similar websites.  If you feel like I do, one could argue poor customer service in the review.  Maybe this will get Apple’s attention.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

My 6mo old 20g iPOD with updated firmware clicks between tracks.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

This may not be directly relevant, but my Jornada PDA has exactly the same problem on its MP3 player: clicks between tracks.

It’s a very unpleasant noise and is the reason I decided to get an i-Pod for music in the first place (oh, apart from storage issues!).

It’s a real shame if the new i-Pod has a similar problem, I certainly won’t be upgrading soon.

Best Buy stores: iPods from $199

The Best Buy in our town was doing just that. They had 10G for $199 and 20G for $299. They had an open box 10G and I bought it for $149. Couldn’t be happier. It works great. I also bought the one for $199 for someone else.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

Well, despite what ipoding.com reports, my experience is different.

On my original model (scrollwheel) 10 GB Mac iPod, there are no clicks audible between tracks when listening with either Etymotic ER-4Ps or Grado SR-60s.

On my new 30 GB iPod, there are clicks audible between tracks using either the ER-4Ps or the SR-60s.

I used the exact same MP3 and AAC files to test both iPods.

The clicks on my new iPod are not a big deal to me.  They’re a minor annoyance, but not a problem that ruins my iPod for me or makes it any less enjoyable to use.

But, having said that, I’d still like to see this fixed with a firmware update! ;)

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

My new 30gb ipod definitely clicks between tracks; it actually seems to occur at the start of a track (it happens when a playlist begins, but not when it ends).  It happens with either aac or mp3, it happens regardless of power status, with any speakers/headphones/earbuds, and it also happens when you press any button while music is playing (listen carefully, on a quiet track).  But it doesn’t happen on iTunes on my iMac.  So… it’s clearly a problem with the ipod (software? I hope?).  I really like this thing, but the clicks are starting to get to me…

Customize the disconnect screen on iPod

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

Why would a reliable news source such as iPoding put out such an obiviously untrue story? It has been more than established that this problem only exist on the new iPods. I have a 20GB and a 15GB and there is no click on the 20GB.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

I also agree. No clicks with a second generation touchwheel 10 GB iPod with firmware 1.2.6.

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

I agree. I never heard the clicking between tracks on my 20gb, which is why it was immediately noticeable on my 30gb.

iLounge is iTrippin'

I recieved my iTrip in the mail…Musicmatch never worked on my PC, and have been using Ephpod to synch my iPod…I copied the playlist and files using Ephpod, but can’t get the iTrip to stop “rolling” through all of the frequencies…despite follwoing all other instructions). I am going to try deleting all except 88.1 (which has worked well using an iRock)...any ideas, anyone?

"Pop" between tracks exists on all iPods?

My new iPod 15 Gb has the clicks. My second generation 10 Gb does not click. So I’m not sure the iPoding folks have been too thorough in their testing.

New iPod owners report "pops" or "clicks" between tracks

Yeah, there is a click…reminds me of a lot of devices that had audio issues (Ipaq)...guess apple forgot about this…oh well, guess they will probably fix it soon.  It has to do with reading header information as “electrostatic noise” by the hardware decoder chip.

New cases by MARWARE

I’m a HUGE fan of the original sportsuit convertible.  The beauty of its design was that you could travel, go to the beach, workout, and even charge the iPod without taking the case off.  If the new design does not provide access to the firewire port, its USELESS in my opinion.  There is no way I want a case I have to peel off every 6.5-8 hours just so I can recharge.

No offense or anything, but please get a better design for that webpage. I closed it as soon as I opened it.

iPod 10GB for $199 at Target

I went to my local Target, in Greensboro NC, and they had two 10gb Mac iPods marked for sale at $279.99.  I was surprised, so I asked the electronics guy if that truly was the price (considering you could buy a newly designed model for just $20 more).  He scanned the item and the price rang up as $199.99.  So I bought one and am now selling it on eBay.

ShareiTunes.com is launched

One thing of interest, though, is that when you enable sharing in iTunes it warns you that sharing is “for personal use only.”  Okay, but what does this mean?  Does it mean I can only share with myself?  Or does it mean I can’t share on behalf of a corporation?  Or charge to hear my music?  They aren’t making their intentions very clear.

But with that said ... I think this whole thing is a WONDERFUL idea.  What better way to preview entire albums, without lengthy download times and without the issue of stealing MP3s ... all we need now is a way to search other people’s libraries without having to first connect to their shares one by one.

We are not encouraging copying in anyway. Our vision of sharing is apple’s version of sharing, where 3-5 people can experience your music collection at any one time. No copying of shared music, no burning of shared music, no putting shared music on your ipod.
