How do I make my Shure e2c's not hurt my ears?

Can I mount my iPod's hard drive to a computer?

My [mac-formatted] iPod seems to have died but a friend of mine is convinced that he can resurrect the hard drive if we can mount it to a machine. We've disassembled the iPod (3rd generation) and removed the hard drive (Toshiba MK1504GAL, 15GB 1.8-inch embedded HDD, 50-pin) and now I'm planning to buy a Slimline CDROM to Desktop IDE Adapter to connect the little drive to a desktop enhanced IDE 40-pin connector. Has anyone successfully done anything like this? Is this total insanity?

When to buy iPod

I saved my pennies and am ready and excited to buy a 30G photo iPod. I can get a decent price through the education discount. But should I wait until the WWDC happens next week to see if a new version is coming out, or if the prices will drop?

Should I leave my iPod plugged in?

Should I leave my iPod plugged in? I really like listening to my iPod's music through iTunes while at my computer. Will leaving it plugged in a majority of the time help or hurt the overall battery life?

iPod Screen

Horror of horrors, I dropped my iPod Mini face down onto a hardwood floor, and the screen is now dead. Everything else seems to be fine (audio feedback when using the scroll wheel is present, the unit plays, mounts, etc.), and the screen itself isn't cracked. Apple has told me that they would be happy to sell me another, but beyond that they don't have much else to say. What are my options? Has anyone used and been happy with a third party repair service?

iPod Remote Breakage

I just purchased my 4th iPod remote in two years. I find the remote the easiest way to control the iPod, especially when I listen to it in bed. But they keep breaking and they're expensive (around $50). [more inside]

ipod or Creative Zen?

Will Shuffler break my Shuffle?

If I use Shuffler to copy music to my iPod Shuffle, will it still work with iTunes? I'm worried the database rebuilder will break something, or that iTunes will know I've been unfaithful to it and refuse to speak to me.

The Skinny on Ipods for the Uninitiated

I'm about to be the last person in the world to get an IPod (Shuffle) and was recently informed that you can only play ITunes music or mp3s ripped from your CDs. In other words, no mp3s from "other sources." I've looked everywhere for the answer, so, is it true? Thanks in advance.

Future Shop Warranty Woes

In March 2004, I purchased a 20 gigabyte iPod at Future Shop (major Canadian electronics chain, owned, I think, by Best Buy).

What the hell is wrong with my ipod?

I have tried everything I can think of, but my computer does not recognize my iPod. Therefore, I cannot restore it to its factory conditions, update the software, or add/remove music from it. (Specs: I have the newest update of iTunes, on a fairly new OSX, and a 4th generation ipod.) This has been going on for a while now, and to be honest I'm at the end of my rope. Yesterday I went into diagnostic mode and discovered there's nothing wrong with it. The firewire port on my computer is fine- I know this because I can charge the ipod via the firewire cable. My darling boyfriend even did something in Linux (?) no idea what, and didn't have any luck. And yes! I have looked at this post and all its related links.

Googlefu needed: looking for a tanktop that has a pocket on the back for an iPod.

I swear I saw an ad/article in a fitness magazine for a running tank top with a pocket on the back, right between or below the shoulder blades. The pocket was the perfect size for an iPod - but my (basic) Googlefu can't find anything. Does anyone know if these tank tops are for sale anywhere, and if they're worth it?

What's wrong with this iPod?

iPod newbie woe: she installed iTunes and iPod software on her XP machine, imported music to iTunes, but iPod did not automatically transfer anything from the iTunes library. She updated both iTunes and iPod software, still nothing. iTunes does recognize iPod, the screen with all the songs will flash for a second, telling her it's updating, and then disappear. No song is actually loaded into the iPod. Any help? Bum iPod?

An iPod question that has me stumped. I have an old firewire only iPod (2nd generation). I would like to sync it to a Windows computer that has an absolute lack to slots for a PCI card, but has four open usb 2 slots. I cannot find any sort of converter. Does anyone know if such a thing exists? They seem so similar.

I recently purchased a 30GB iPod photo... as in purchased it a week ago. I love it to death except my case is horribly scratched! I'm obviously careful with it and have kept it in my pant pockets but the front and back have all these tiny scratches. It's like they made the case to scratch easily... any ideas that help reduce the tiny, albeit annoying scuffs? [more inside]

Can I add aux-in to my car stereo?

I have an iPod and a truck with a crappy factory stereo. I have tried 3 different FM transmitters and I'm giving up on using them to play the iPod through the car stereo. If possible, I want to avoid buying a new stereo that has aux-in. It's a big expenses and invites theft. Can I add aux-in to my existing stereo? I've heard that car stereo places will do this, wiring a headphone-jack cable to your seat/dashboard. Is that true? How do they go about it? And how would I "tune it in" after such an installation?
