There's a process you need to go through BEFORE you set your big pods up for the first time<br>to keep the pods from eating your APPLE STORE iTUNES every time you try to add a song!<br><br>You're right..... it's one thing to not warn about this in a virgin Shuffle Doc<br>but it borders of criminal neglect when it's not pointed out after that!<br><br>I had already disabled that so called "feature" in iTunes last year so I didn't encounter it with <br>the MiniShuffle, I had choose to load random tunes when I plugged it in.<br><br>
I received a 4Gb Nano... and I've already decided I'm going to return it & pony up $50 more for the 30Gb iPod. It's not easy looking at this shrink-wrapped Nano and resisting the temptation to take it for a spin. You think I should wait until after SF Macworld to see if new iPods are coming soon? I'm thinking maybe I just return the Nano now for a giftcard, wait a few weeks and see. <br><br><br>
Target. Sure, you can exchange anything with a receipt for a giftcard. I guess if nothing new is announced at the keynote I can just make the exchange then.<br><br>I was really surprised to see the small cost difference with the Nano to the 30Gb. Is there any difference in the sound quality?<br><br>

This is really strange...<br><br>Along with the ShufflePod he got me for Xmas, my brother also brought along the Beatles "Love" CD for me to hear this past weekend.<br><br>Love it!<br><br>Sooooo, last night I pop the CD into my Mac and grab all the songs as their original .aiff files, copying them all to a folder on my desktop.<br><br>Then I decided to also rip/import the CD into my iTunes library, where they appeared as MPEGs, of course. When I loaded up the ShufflePod with songs, of course I loaded all the songs from the "Love" tracks I imported through iTunes.<br><br>Now, the original .aiff files play perfectly through the QuickTime player. But in iTunes the MP3s jump around and play like a scratched up CD...not from one track to another, but they jump around within each individual track, as far as I can tell. Same thing happens when played in the Shuffle. Doesn't matter whether I try to play the songs as a random shuffle-play or sequentially.<br><br>Anybody else with the CD care to try this and report back? I'd like to know if there's something I screwed up with ripping the CD to iTunes as MPEGs or if maybe there's something in the file structure of the disc that makes this happen.<br><br>Really weird. No other CD that I've ever ripped/imported to iTunes has done this.<br><br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by SparkCollector on 12/26/06 04:12 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
I imported tha album into iTunes as mpegs when it first came out, and have had no problems at all. Can't imagine what's going on.<br><br>____________________________________________________<br>Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,<br>But to be young was very heaven!
