Trouble with iPod’s volume meter


Q: My iPod video used to display the time elapsed/left for each song, and the volume meter would show up when I needed it, etc.

Now the bottom of the screen just displays a row of little circles, and the volume meter doesn’t show up any more. Can’t figure out how to change it back in the settings—any ideas?

A: This is a known issue with an older version of the iPod’s operating system (or “Firmware”). To fix this bug, simply perform an “Update” of your iPod’s software using the latest iPod Software Updater from this Apple website.
