My new iPod got me iPissed.
    #2960611 - 08/03/04 04:47 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Okay, so my mom bought me an iPod today.  A 40gb one :grin:.  So i get home and install iTunes and all that jazz.  So i start transfering cd's to my computer, then i go to transfer them to my iPod.  I plug it in my USB port things.  And then a message comes up saying "you plugged in a High Speed USB port 2.0 (something like that) in a non-high speed usb port, click for more details).  So i click.  Then it says that it will transfer slower which can cause problems and blah blah blah.  I have 4 other usb ports on this computer...all of them are slow ones.  So i look up in the instructions of the iPod just to see fi there is anything about it.  It says it will not work with the slow speed ones.  So i told my mom about that, and tomorrow a computer guy is coming in to put some high speed ones.  I have to wait until tomorrow to put music on it :crying:

Atleast i got an iPod.  And i wasn't expecting her to actually buy me the 40 gb one.  But she did and i'm a happy camper.  Except for the plug thing.

So i conclude this post with-

My iPod got me iPissed.

Well your iPod does not have a USB port. It has a Firewire port. Does your computer have firewire?

I'm out of the loop, I didn't realize they were also USB 2 compatible.

My iPod is a busted one from the first time they even had 10 GB ones.

I have a "4th generation" one. With the touchpad and shit. It's a fun little thing, especially once i can use it for music. But right now im getting all the cd's onto my computer so i can get it on my iPod quicker instead of whatever else...

i have a mac and would recommend it to anyone (that doesn't want to play games....).  ellegent, easy to use and very reliable.

ive got one of the 1st gen iPods with the scroll wheel, 5GB model.  i had problems with the battery (like everybody reported) and i had to pop mine open to manually disconnect the battery unite!  man was that a tense operation!!  Its all good now, ill be upgrading if/when they have color screens :wink:

you manually changed it? I didn't know you could do that. How well does it stay together, because there aren't any visable screws...atleast on mine. Color screens would be nice...would if they add a little visualizer when they get color screens...haha that would be cool, but kinda pointless if you wanna watch a tiny screen.

i didn't change the battery, i just unplugged it from the rest of the unit so it would reset. popping open the case was tough, i had to use a razor blade to slowly push the metallic casing away from the plastic part. on the earlier versions of the ipod



you could wedge one in at the 90 degree point of metal. its still hard to rip apart though because its held together by these clips on the inside and when you put it back together, it snaps closed. as you can tell i did fuck up the material a bit and one metal edge sticks up a little. but at least my battery stopped running out after two hours!

ipod is backwards compatabile with USB 1.1 - you can still load music onto it, it'll simply be a bit slower. 3mins per CD vs. 30 seconds, or so.

Most likely you indeed have USB 2.0 ports (unless your computer is old). At which case all you need to do is install the drivers to move up from 1.1 to 2.0.
