I read that the new iPod classics only work with iTunes. There is a hack out there to get around it, but Apple is using muscle to get users to be dependent on iTunes. Someone please confirm this - too lazy to google at the moment.
Sounds like you're running out of patience. If you're in the mood to pay someone to fix it try Tekserve www.tekserve.com on 23rd St.
It is almost as if there is a file that corrupts the ipod and kills it.
My library is not even up to capacity. I HAVE had success at synching 93 gigs of the 131 gigs that I have, but that's hardly the point. They sold me a 160 gb ipod.
That means it will copy the files again, right? I don't have 260 gigs worth of space to do that. If I were able to procure a 500 gb drive, and I did this, would this be the equivalant of copyng the files from my father's mirror library of my own and rebuilding my library from that? If so, I'll try it.
Have you tried a different cable?
Have you checked to make sure you are synching at maximum speed?
If you are at maximum speed, then have you tried a lower sync speed?
I know you will hate it, but have you tried a smaller library?
Have you re-indexed the iTunes library to consolidate all your songs?
Have you tried a different port on your G4? Firewire or USB?
Have you applied all the updates to your G4?
Have you taken the G4 and the iPod into the Genius Bar to have them fix the problem?
Lastly and most probable, I found this interesting thread that shows people synching in smaller batches and having some success.
If you've gone through a bunch of iPods and still have problems, my guess is it's not the iPod. Maybe something in the configuration of iTunes? I assume you have the latest version of iTunes (there was an update less than a week ago.) Anyway, I would post the issue in its entirety over at iLounge. Apple tech support is really lacking in the brain department.
You need to check if you have the firmware update. There's a long discussion on this and other issues over at iLounge. http://forums.ilounge.com/showthread.php?t=203994&page=10[I bought the same one as you... don't faint ... and no problems (fingers crossed)]
You need a PC interface for the satellite radio, depending on how you want to do it. I do it with the now defunct XM PCR, but I think there's a SIRIUS equivalent.
Someone, possibly glx, mentioned a while back that you can record satellite radio onto an ipod. Is this true? Can someone explain how this is done?Thank you in advance.
Regarding the TV shows, google for Podcasts and episodes and that should get you going. Regarding the DVD's, it's a bit trickier but you can. You will need to first take the DVD over to your computer and then convert it down to a smaller size for use on your iPod. There are a variety of tools to do both, mostly the process requires patience.http://sheerboredom.net/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=65http://www.engadget.com/2005/10/14/how-to-convert-a-dvd-for-your-ipod-with-video-in-windows/--DoE
Does anyone know if it is possible to transfer DVDs that I own to itunes?Also, my friend says there are lots of TV shows and stuff that can be downloaded for free. Does anyone know which shows are free and where to get them?
Is there any way to have the ratings I apply to the songs on the Ipod, overwrite the ratings that are in iTunes on my computer? Seems like every time I synch the laptop and iPod, all the ratings revert to what's on the computer...
