      Actually by default podcasts shouldn't play when shuffling. If you look at the options under the file info for a podcast "Skip when shuffling" is checked.

      I haven't been reading this forum, but I just recently heard that the iPod touch was hacked and can now install third party apps. Is this true? I've seen youtube videos that people are installing all of the iPhone apps on their iPod touchs after the hack, but can this hack be used to install programs like AIM?

      Can any one tell me how to get Windows media videos on to the ipod. I have some saved on to the computer that I wanted to put on there but can't figure out how to get them on to I-tunes. It's driving me nuts.

      You have to convert them to MP4 format. Try using Videora, it's free and it works awesome.

      Yes, it can play regular mp3 files as well as DRM-protected mp3 files and .aac files as well.

      You can't just put files on the shuffle - you need to use iTunes.

      I have about 5000 song on my 80 gig ipod. I have been moving songs around my computer trying to keep all song on one computer, anyways i was noticing that my Ipod Library shows duplicates of songs, sometimes even more then 1 copy. When i look at my Ipod it doesnt look like there are duplicates there.

      Is there a way to delete the duplicates out of my Library?

      I have the 16g iPod touch and I just got my first problem.
      Last night I was surfing the net with safari and it froze up on me. The screen went dark and the ipod wouldn't turn back on. I plugged it into itunes and restored it. After the restore the screen came back on, but now the screen itself is not responding. When I hit the home button I get the "slide to unlock" screen, but the slider won't move.
      What did I do? Is there anything else I can do at home before I have to take it into a local Apple store? Oh and I'm a PC user if that makes any difference.
      EDIT: I did a force reboot and got it working.

      Rant:
      Sent in my 4th replacement iPod for the sad face of death. The hard drive clicks, and won't boot.
      Apple sends it back saying it works. It does for a few days, then dies again.

      I will be on my FIFTH replacement since February 2006 if they actually send me a replacement.
      I hate technology.
      be brave and be kind.

      Question about the ipod Classic...
      I was playing around with a display one at work, and it was really, really sluggish. Late to react to me scrolling on the wheel, and selecting menus.
      Was this fixed in firmware updates, or is it the way the Classic actually operates?

    20. 11-04-2007 10:48 AM #145
      So, like many people out there I'm sure, I was excited when I heard that Apple had released the iPod touch. I could now have the sweet huge screen, the ipod, video, and above all, internet access.
      But as I held the unit, and was amazed by its realistic internet experience. I began to wonder how often I could expect to really have a wireless signal to use. My home and office have wireless signals that I'm sure I could connect to. However, I already have laptops at both places. That leaves me needing internet when at my friends houses, and when walking around Boston.
      But I'm not sure how much luck I would have with all of this. Most of my friends are barely able to get their own computers working on the wireless network, and they never are able to produce their access codes without some serious prodding. I also imagine that little coffee shops have wireless networks that I could use, but what about when I'm downtown at night, trying to find another drinking establishment, and I can't get a goddam signal?
      If anyone has experience with this, I'd love to hear about it. Maybe the short story is that the touch is meant for college students who spend all of their days in wireless enabled buildings. People like me need to suck it up and get the iphone.
      Thanks,
      Stewart

      Get an iPhone for not much more and then you'll always have internet access, even if its a bit slower than a true wireless network...and you get phone on top of it.
      Seriously though, I do know what you mean. I dont find public wifi to be widespread enough to really have something like that be beneficial. Thats why its nice to have the access on the iPhone, even if its a bit slow on the EDGE network.

      The real question is why do you need internet when you're walking around downtown?

      I just took my iPod Touch to Europe with me, and I used it while walking around downtown quite a bit. booking hotels, checking my bank account, etc. It was actually extremely helpful, and way lighter than a laptop!

      Yes. Create "whatever" in your computer and save it as an image file. Send to engraver...
