I have a hand-me-down iphone, which I'm using (for now) mostly as a music player. However, because I'm not the original user, I can't alter the music library, and I'm getting real tired of my mom's Dan Fogelberg and Gordon Lightfoot albums. How do I make the phone and my itunes realize that I am its owner?

I have about 100 gigabytes of MP3 files on my iPod that have been passaged through several iPods and failing laptop hard drives, and about 10% of the tracks have become corrupted and have little audible glitches in them. That's really annoying. Does this kind of damage leave behind some kind of tell-tale signature that I could get my computer to search for and give me a list of tracks that need re-ripping? Is there some kind of Mac (or at a pinch other OS) program that can identify the dodgy tracks? Or do I just need to spend however many hundred hours listening with pen and paper at hand?

I'm in the US, and I would like to buy a DVD that I'm pretty sure is only available in UK (Region 2) format. I don't really care about playing it in my home DVD player – what I'm more interested in is getting it on my iPod. I have a Dell Inspiron e1505, circa March 2006, with Handbrake installed. Here's what I'd like to know: [more inside]
I have a brand new 8gig ipod touch on its way in the mail. I plan on using it half for music and half for apps and mobile wifi browsing. Should I jailbreak it, or just upgrade to the 3.0 firmware and use the app store? [more inside]
After several years use of iPod headphones, I'm fairly sure I've damaged my ears listening too loudly with earbud style headphones. I have no interest in in-ear headphones, but my question is: is there an alternative to earbuds and in-ear that provide decent sound quality and are functional to use while exercising? (this rules out giant over the ear cans as well) I've seen behind-the head wrap-around headphones but they're usually cheap and tinny -- is there a high end version of those style that I could wear while sweating?

What are the right headphones for me? Big head, normal ears, likes loud noises, $100-$200 budget. Mostly for listening to music on my iPod Touch, occasionally playing games on my computer using it's (reasonably competent) onboard audio. I understand the listening experience is subjective, but if I can narrow it down to a short list, I can work on getting my head on various items to see how they work for me. [more inside]

How do I play videos from my iPod Nano on my Phillips television? My Phillips is a flat screen and has a USB port on the side, which my iPod can dock to. When I connect them, the television even recognizes that an iPod is connected, but doesn't seem to know what to do with it. Any ideas?

I'm looking for a smallish iPod dock with speakers to put in the kitchen or dining room (anywhere else besides the living room which has the stereo).

My library is in the process of creating a virtual tour that we would like to pre-load onto a few IPod Nanos for students to check out. I've read a couple of interesting articles which discuss the implementation of such a project. But the one thing I cannot seem to find anything about is if there is a way to lockdown or protect the IPods while circulating so that students cannot try to add or remove content synced to the IPod.

Does anyone know how to totally clear out an iPod, essentially returning it to 'factory settings'? I have an older iPod I wanted to give to someone, but the issue is my computer won't locate the iPod (I had it synced to another computer that has since died), or tells it's not authorized. Is there a way for example to clear it out from the ipod itself?
