      hey wade! got an urgent question for you or anyone else that may be of assistance. i lent my mom my iPod Vid 60G. she is currently out of the country and is awaiting my call for the answer. the question:
      #1
      i got her the universal adapter to connect her camera directly to the iPod so she could dump her photos.

      she was able to do this just fine until this past week. she is now getting the following error:
      ""An error occurred while importing""
      #2
      also, she is unable to view photos anymore ( she was able to before )
      unfortunately, i cannot recall any detailed information about the other devices ( camera, card reader, etc. ) but i can get the info, if that would help. I've tried finding the answer via google/ ipodlounge/ etc. to no avail. your assistance is greatly appreciated.
      :n

      edit: only 10 of the 60G has been used thus far

      Is there any Ipod program that will work with just windows 98, not windows 98 second edition? I tried anapod, but it just won't work. I know, I know, soon enough I'm getting a new laptop that I can run XP on, but for now I just want to put some songs on this damn thing.

      Quick question, do the Ipod video (30gb) and the Ipod Nano use the same usb cable? Af far as connectibility on the bottom of each unit. Thinking about picking up a nano for my woman for mothers day.

      Anyone have recommendations for cases, screen protectors, and scratch remover for an Ipod Video? Even if I just think about my ipod it gets scratched. Black 30 G.

      I like my otterbox. http://www.otterbox.com
      It's a BIG case, but it's waterproof (to 3') and I can still use the clickwheel. I like it because I am around machines a lot for work, and the otterbox keeps metal dust out of my Ipod. The ipod sits snug in the otterbox, and I can say that firsthand the customer service from the company is top-notch.

      I also bought the clear plastic laminating covers for my ipod (they're basically a hard plastic laminate). The only drawback with them is that you need to install them as soon as you get the ipod, oelse you're likley to scratch it all up. One other note is that the clickwheel cover doesn't really stick too well to the click wheel, but I'm not concerned about scratching up my clickwheel.
      Off the road... on the mind.

      Now that I have the 5gen iPod (instead of my nano), I can finally fit ALL my stuff onto it. However, I have one drawback. Before I was unable to fit any of my commedy cd's onto the iPod, so hitting shuffle songs actually only played songs. Now the shuffle songs option plays the commedy rutines as well. Is there a way to trick the iPod out of playing any commedy rutines when I want the songs shuffled besides making a playlist to include everything else?

      Yeah, I think that you can if you down;pad the newest version of itunes, you can set the shuffle to the most probable selection, there are a few options, but I don't know if you can specifically do it that way.

      yes, if you edit the track info ("get info") there will be a box to select that says something like (skip while shuffling) [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Note, i think that this is only if you upgrade to itunes 7

      only thing that would work is to burn the music from other comps to cd, then rip to your comp to add it to the playlist. the ipod can only be sync'd up with one computer playlist. once it is attached to another comp it will erase all tracks and replace so you cant get away with illegally aquiring songs even if they are yours.

      Is there a way to charge your ipod through a regular home outlet? In other words, not through a computer or car charger.

      What's the best way to play your iPod through desk, or stereo speakers? I'm thinking using the headphone out, isn't the best way, because it's eq'd and amplified. If you're feeding powered speakers, it seems like there might be some sound quality issues that could be fixed with a line out signal. I'm planning on getting a nice video dock for my home stereo. I'd like a cheap one for work, for my desk speakers. It would be nice if I could charge it too. Any suggestions on a simple charging, line out dock for my work desk?
      Any ideas?
      Thanks...

      no issues with clarity etc. etc...
      I plug ipods into big speaker systems (at clubs and bars) all the time with no problems. Just make sure the cable is proper (nothing expensive just
      just get an 1/8" cable one from radio shack)
      1/8" Male to 1/8" female and then plug in your computer speakers.
      easy... radio shack has it. have fun!

      I finally got an iPod and am still on the fence about it. I really hate the way itunes works and they way everythig is organized. It's a huge PITA to have to go through and edit each track before I import it. My biggest beef is w/ Hip Hop CDs where there are featured artists on a track. It lists each artis/featured artist individually and causes the entire CD to be imported to the compilations folder. It really just creats a huge cluster **** or artists. I learned how to work around this(but now I don't know who's featured since I just keep that main artist). But iTunes just blows IMO. I wish there was another program I could use and I wish there was away for me to select how I want everything organized on the iPod itself.
      So this isn't a completely negative post. I am liking the fact that I can store a lot of CDs and live shows on the iPod and not have to worry about CDs anymore. Each live show is usually 3 cds and when you have over 800 shows that is a lot of CDs and gets expensive. Now if the iPod supported .flac like a few others do I'd be even happier.
