hi! I just bought a new pink 4GB mini (although i'm not getting it till my birthday) and realized that I have an older Key-lime pie ibook G3... I'm positive she doesn't have a USB 2.0 port and was wondering what I need in order to run my new ipod on my older laptop... I have firewire cables but am not sure the minis are even equipped with firewire ports...

I have a blueberry one. mine has firewire, so when I get the firewire cable, I will use that, but a little powered usb 2 hub will solve your problem.

ok, so first generation ipods included more cables. ok, so first generation ipods came in a box that looked better. but - everyone that saw my 2nd generation ipod instantly fell in love with it, from the minute i opened the box. those reactions do not really bode well for all these so-called 'ipod killers' that are being released smile

consumers generally don't care about differences between first and second generation models. modern pcs (mac or pc) have usb2 anyway, and with the 18 hour battery life, who cares about recharging.

its the wow factor that counts, and this one has it more than ever. the only thing i really do not like about the ipods is those pesky headphones.. how come noone is complaining about those?

I'm getting a 6 gig mini. I just wish they'd at least give the dock, though. nothing else to complain about.

Does anyone know if you can Manually type in the songs? if so, how? I know you can type in at the submit songs page, but i have a european cd, and i don't think it would find it.

To everybody way up at the top asking about the battery, The Second Generation iPod mini uses PortalPlayer's new Chipset. It's more power efficient than the old one, hence, the power increase. http://portableaudio.engadget.com/entry/1234000450034463/

I love my new 4GB Mini, but I HATE how it still uses battery power when it's sleeping! I go to bed, wake up, and 1/8 of the battery is gone!

^^To the above post, I have a pink one, and the color is awesome. It's so bright and vibrant. smile

One post had shown a news report that the ipod mini will get a colour screen. The date of the article was Feb. 15, 2005 and currently it`s the end of March....no update. Anyone heard anything?

The Mini only display text, like the regular iPod, why does it need a color screen? It cost more and doesn't add anything to music. I don't see why everyone expected this color screen so much.

What I dont get...what's the point in getting a mini, if, for less than 50 bucks, you can go from 6 gigs to 20 gigs. The UI is the exact same, you get more hardware (though, sadly, no case or clip) and the ability to show your trendyness with the white gloss finish. To me, a mini says "I wasn't smart enough to not get ripped off, but i like pretty colours"

I am getting one but I have a question. Do you get an in-wall phone charger to charge the battery?

Will the wall charger from my 30 gig ipod work for my mini?

I just bought one and so far it works fine. I had no problem formatting it with my PC although I had to use my desktop instead of my laptop since the laptop had USB 1.1 ports. I did find I can transfer songs from iTunes with the 1.1 port but it takes alot longer than the 2.0 port on my desktop. After that I decided to go for a firewire cable for the laptop. It works well with iTunes. I had no problem adding songs or deleting songs. Originally I was going to get an iPod Shuffle but after looking at the Mini I felt it was a better buy for me.

Hmmmmm I got mine- but how do you know what kind of USB port you have?

Posted by Alíd on March 31, 2005 at 6:09 AM (PDT) Comment 71

I havn't heard anyone talk about the green mini. I just ordered one, and I took a chance on green. Can anyone tell me their opinions on the color?

Posted by platformshoes on April 5, 2005 at 4:09 PM (PDT) Comment 72

can u download tracks onto the 2nd generation without itunes and if so is it worthwhile?

Posted by curly on April 6, 2005 at 1:01 PM (PDT) Comment 73

...and does iTunes recognize burned CD's or mix CD's? I have a TON of mixes, and I'm hoping they will all be uploaded.

Posted by platformshoes on April 7, 2005 at 5:40 PM (PDT) Comment 74

!BaK3R : The 1st Gen Mini got 8 hours of battery life, the 2nd one got 18 hours. Just for that fact the 2nd gen Mini is a better deal.
