Volume limit on iPod shuffle,

Q: I had read about the password-protected volume limiting features for iPods, and proceded to buy my young son an iPod shuffle, since it was the least expensive, and most kid-proof. However, I can’t figure this out: does the iPod shuffle have the volume-limiting feature of the other iPods even without a screen? If so, what buttons do I press to activate it?

A: Indeed it does! Since the iPod shuffle has no screen, however, this setting is controlled from iTunes’ iPod settings, not on the iPod itself.

With the iPod connected to iTunes, select it in the column on iTunes’ left side. Then, in the “Settings” tab, you’ll find the volume limiting feature, complete with password protection.
