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 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.

I just bought my iPod Mini Green yesterday. It should be in by Monday!

A warning about 2nd Gen iPod mini Batteries!

I got my Green 6gb mini about 3 weeks ago along with a USB wall charger and the dock. Last night, i plugged the ipod into the dock and used the USB wall charger to charge it. When I woke up in the morning the iPod was hot to the touch and it sayed it had 1/2 a battery left even though I left it on the charger overnight. I was in school about 3 hours when the iPod finnaly cooled down a little. Then it wouldnt turn on or show ANY icons. I called tech-support and they said my battery was installed icorrectly! I am in the proccess of getting it fixed by apple right now, but that means there are more faulty batteries out there. The tech-suppirt agent said that it didnt happen very offten, but if your mini overheats or has trouble keeping a charge, contact apple to see if your battery is installed wrong. Do it before your warrenty is over or you will have to pay $100+.

Halving the size of the boxes is a really good move by Apple, though. They can ship twice the amount using the same amount of fuel (which you pay for when you buy it). I wouldn't be surprised if iPod boxes continue to get smaller with the price of gas these days.

This is the only way I know of to get a gold mini without getting ripped off on ebay.

I have a Mac clone running 9.2.2 with a third party USB card (pre 2.0) I manage to do most everything with my mini (charging, transfer) anyway. Just leave it plugged in overnight..

Sometimes system requirements are more slanted toward sales of new hardware.. smile

I have a 2nd Gen Green 4G mini. My PC kept crashing every time I tried to load CD's into itunes. I don't know if this is my PC's problem or the ipod. Any tricks for uploading. As for burned CD's you can't get super tagging info online, you 'll have to type in your own data in itunes. It's not a big deal though. What is the difference between a firewire connction and USB (sorry for the ignorance)?
BTW-I love the green mini-pink is just too over the top girly for me. Although, I just bought a 6G silver mini and will give the green one to my son

Posted by Andreakat on June 6, 2005 at 1:28 PM (PDT) Comment 81

To Andreakat : I had the same problem with CD who made iTunes crash. I've found out after some google search that this could be caused by some "non-english character" in your Windows XP User name. My name was Rémi (i got an accent) so there was an accent in the path to the iTunes folder in "My Documents". I had to create another user in XP (without the "é" in my name) to make it work, (since changing the user name doesn't change the my document folder path).

Do you think it is a good idea to purchase an iskin and other ipod acessories from ebay? Because they seem cheaper on ebay than anywhere else. thanks! ..

I have recently sold my 1st G mini partly because i crack my screen and they ask for a full $250 charge repair, which pissed me off, then i see the 2nd G mini with the 18 hr battery life.

I thought, maybe life is better after all.

But after a bit of research, my hopes seems to drain down to hell.I mean no ac adapter is the @#$est thing i have ever heard.

I love mini, I love its functions, I love apple's desining team, but i think apple's management and sales are the worst people ever!

At the end, i think creative zen micro is the best subsituted, if you felt the same way i do about 2nd G mini.

And no, this ain't a advertisment for creative.
More competition creates better products!
