      Thanks! Since I am getting a 16gb Nano, do you think I will notice a difference from 320 to 128? I know there is significant size difference and just want to make the most of my Nano.

      Yes, definitely. 128k is horrible in my opinion. If you really want to make the most of your nano, then encode in 192k. It's kind of a "happy medium" between the two. 192k isn't exactly CD quality, but I feel that it's leaps and bounds ahead of 128k. You'll notice a significant space difference between 192k and 320k so I would just go with that.
      In all honesty though, I'm not an audiophile, but I do appreciate the best quality I can get with what I can work with. I'd prefer to have all my stuff in FLAC (lossless) but it really doesn't work with anything besides my computer. If you don't notice a difference between 320k and 192k, then just do 192k. As long as you're happy, it doesn't matter. Try out one CD. Encode it in 192k and 320k and test them out on the nano. See what's better. Do a blind test and see if you can tell the difference. If not, then go with 192k [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      The worst thing I ever did was start downloading a few albums in FLAC or 320k I can't go back to 128k ever again.

      I agree. It's horrible. I remember way back when, when Napster and Kazaa weren't considered "illegal" and we used to download music in 128k and we were blown away with the quality
      128k sounds like an 8-track to me

      I have all my songs in 320kb mp3s but I also converted songs on my playlist to 192kb AAC files to take with me on my iPhone/iPod.
      I don't really hear that much difference between 192kb and 320kb MP3 on headphones, unless I have a reference quality set.
      320kb MP3 playback really eats battery, I was able to gain an extra hour of battery life and more storage on my iPhone with 192kb AAC music over 320kb MP3s.

      Thanks for the info, after posting my question about the bit rates, I starting searching online and found some information that was very useful. (Choosing the Best Bit Rate for Great Sound Quality article), it explains the differences with bit rates, files sizes, etc... One thing did not know about is MP3 VBR (Variable Bit Rate), in iTunes you can set it to VBR and opt for a minimum bit rate. It actually came out pretty good.
      Setting it to VBR and a minumum rate of 128k, made some files 2MB to 5MB, depending on how many instruments or sounds that happen at the same time will cause the file size to change. Read the article above, useful stuff I thought.
      Thanks again!

      I asked before with no help. I really want to do this:
      How do I convert a podcast into a regular mp3?
      Reason is I listen to MUSIC podcasts, normal 3-4 min songs, that are podcasts... Well as you know, you cant listen to them in a row. you need to manually select the podcast and play it, fine for lengthy talk type podcasts, sh!te for songs.
      Is there anyway to do it in itunes 8? I'm willing to go to great lengths to pull this off. (copy to another machine...ect)

      Speaking of converting. Have you guys every hear of "PlaysForSure"?
      I just bought the new SpeedRacer DVD and they offer a free digital copy of the DVD. I was wondering how I can add the copy to my iPod? I doubt I would watch it on my computer, but I think it would be awesome to have it on the iPod for when I get bored.

      Apparently the 4G nano's were only supposed to come in 4 and 8GB. Really? I mean this day in and age all the video, 4 seems like a waste. Haha remember the first iPhone 4 and 8GB.

      Also looks like they ended up in Europe

      Sorry for the late reply:
      PlayForSure content doesn't work with iPods. I'm actually not sure if there is a way to convert it to iTunes because of the DRM on those discs. PFS content, I believe, only plays on Windows Media video players that have the PFS logo on them.
      Does the disc only contain a PFS video? I bought Rambo on bluray and it came with a second disc. When the disc is inserted into the computer, it asks for a serial number. After that number is entered, it unlocks the videos and allows me to download one of two versions. There is a PFS video, and also an .mp4 video that works flawlessly in iTunes. Rambo actually looks awesome on my iPod touch, and sounds insane for a portable movie. The only downside is that the movie takes up about 1.2gb...kind of a lot of a 2 hour movie. I've encoded a bunch of 2 hour movies for my iPod that weigh in about 500-600mb that look just as good on my iPod.
      Hope this helps [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Yup. You still don't know how pissed I am that if I can't use my old headphone adapter->composite video cables because apple locked out the feature so that only THEIR cables, which are [SIZE=+2]50 dollars[/SIZE] will work. We have a tv in our breakroom with rabbit ears at work. Come Feb, it ain't gonna work anymore. I'd love to be able to watch an episode of the office or something on my break...but 50 bucks?! Are they insane? I already spent $300 on the damned iPod touch which is insane as it is...then, Apple loves to make all their devices extremely easy to scratch so I had to get the good screen protector for 30 dollars. Also, Apple is gay and doesn't include the POWER ADAPTER with any of their products anymore. Seriously, what the hell is up with that. Do they think that everyone can just magically leave their iPod at their computer for 4 hours while it charges? Or people who travel often will have a laptop that they can drain so they can charge the iPod? I realize that their a business and cutting costs is a great way to help them out...but they've cut so many corners.
      When I first bought my 20gb iPod (HP), I believe it was the 4th gen...it came with the power adapter, one cable for firewire, one for USB, a screen wipe and everything. The universal dock cost me 19 dollars...now they are 49...............

      your brother probably updated the ipod. and you restored it to the latest update.
      so my guess is you'll have to downgrade the firmware and rejailbreak it.
      google how to downgrade firmware and the jailbreak process.

      Just done some extensive testing at the Apple store for over an hour comparing the new iPods.
      I have a 3G iPhone 16GB, 5.5G iPod 80GB, and 3rd Gen Nano 8GB.
      Here's my ranking from best to worse, sound quality.
      - iPod Classic
      - iPod Touch/iPhone 3G
      - IPod Nano 4G
      - iPhone 1st Gen
      I compared the same tracks over and over using my Ultimate Ears Fi3 Earphones, EQ set to Electronics/Deep/Jazz to compare various signal ranges.
      The new iPod Classic beats the other iPods in audio quality hands down. The reproduction quality is near flawless.
      The new Touch/iPhone 3G has a bit of hallowness, it's hard to spot but with Alicia Key's "Fallin" the background percussion sounded more hallow and less natural than the Classic.
      I was a bit amazed by the new Nano, it was nearly spot on with the Touch/iPhone but I noticed that it wasn't as loud as the Touch and listening to live recordings suffered a bit. The new shake and shuffle feature is pretty cool.
      The new Classic really surprised me, the navigation/touch sensitivity is much better than my 5.5G iPod and it is perfect for people on the go like me. Unfortunately I already have the iPhone 3G :-( I really liked how the Classic feels and controls.
      The screen is really nice and clear, the semi Cover-Flow look is a nice touch and it didn't feel as jerky or stutter as bad as the previous gen iPod Classic.
      The new Touch was as expected, amazingly thin and very high quality looking with the metal back. I am so envious of how thin it is next to the 3G and didn't feature any Fisher Price plastic.
      These are my personal experience.. you can't really go wrong with any of the new iPods. The Nano is the most improved player from last gen, the new shape is perfect compared to the fatty nanos.

      I got a 16gb orange (copper) nano to replace my old 5G video. I love it. I am very happy with it.

      I have an older nano and wanted to know if this Nike+ running thing will work with it? It is the ipod 3versions ago. It said nano but are there any requirements for it ?
      thanks

      I go for this software because I can easily backup my songs, videos from my iPod back to my PC. It is so easy to use. It
      offers very fast searching and a browse mode which makes finding songs/videos on the iPod.

      i have a 4g first gen nano that only turns on if you lock it, then unlock. then 95% of the time none of the buttons or scrolling features work.
      i've tried the reset holding down menu and the center button and this doesn't fix it. am i out of luck?

      I had a smiliar problem with mine. I reset the nano through itunes which causes the nano to erase all music stored so you would have to upload again.

      Sounds like the clickwheel is failing. You could try replacing it: http://www.rapidrepair.com/sho....html (via ipodmods.com)
      But try the software route first. It's cheaper and easier.
