"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.

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.

Their site allowed people to copy other people’s music. There is no copying going on here. But thanks for the concern.

I’d still be careful if I were you. IIRC, the college students that the RIAA sued didn’t actually write any sharing software either, just a search engine/indexer for the normal old windows network file sharing.

Napster was about actually copying music, this is about playing music off of someone else’s computer.  Since stealing is not occuring this should be fine, and if its not, its really Apple’s issue not ours, all we did at shareitunes.com is put up a site where people can list their address to their iTunes hosted music collections, we didn’t actually write the software that allows the sharing Apple did.  Also if you actually buy digital downloads from apple, those songs are protected by Digital Rights Management and will not let you share them without a password.  Does that clarify it for you. You can’t burn music you are sharing from someone else’s share, you can’t load it on your ipod, you can only listen to it via iTunes while you are both connected.

Thanks for the announcememt. Our parents taught us well, sharing is a good thing.  Come by and add your Share.

problem with Napster is that you could download the music. this is just a stream, like listening to internet radio.

i would think legaly it would be the same as going over to a buddies house and listening to there CD collecton, no harm, no fowl, nobody making money off of it

This is a feature built into iTunes4? Isn’t sharing one’s music techinically ILLEGAL, and isn’t this what Napster got shut down for?

Somebody enlighten me, please smile
