audio files already on iPod will be erased and replaced with the songs and other audio
files on the computer iPod is connected to. For more information about loading music
to iPod and using iPod with more than one computer, see Chapter 2, “Music Features,”
on page 16.
Note: You can load songs while your battery is charging.

Charging the iPod Battery
You can charge the iPod battery in two ways:
 Connect iPod to your computer.
 Use the iPod USB Power Adapter, available separately.
To charge the battery using your computer:
m Connect iPod to a high-power USB port on your computer. The computer must be
turned on and not in sleep mode (some models of Macintosh can charge iPod while in
sleep mode).
If the battery icon on the iPod screen shows a lightning bolt, the battery is charging. If
it shows a plug, the battery is fully charged.
If you don’t see the lightning bolt or the plug, iPod might not be connected to a
high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.
Important: If iPod is very low on power, it might need to charge for up to 30 minutes
before the display turns on.
If you want to charge iPod when you’re away from your computer, you can purchase
the iPod USB Power Adapter.
To charge the battery using the iPod USB Power Adapter:
1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected).
2 Connect the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable to the power adapter, and plug the
other end of the cable into iPod.

With iPod, you can take your music and audio collection with
you wherever you go. Read this section to learn about
loading music and listening to iPod.
You use iPod by importing songs, audiobooks, videos, and podcasts (radio-style audio
shows) into your computer and then loading them onto iPod. Read on to learn more
about the steps in this process, including:
 Getting music from your CD collection, hard disk, or the iTunes Store (part of iTunes
and available in some countries only) into the iTunes application on your computer.
 Organizing your music and other audio into playlists, if you want.
 Loading playlists, songs, audiobooks, videos, and podcasts onto iPod.
 Listening to music or other audio on the go.
About iTunes
iTunes is the software application you use with iPod. iTunes can sync music,
audiobooks, podcasts, and more with iPod. When you connect iPod to your computer,

Chapter 2 Music Features
Importing Music From Your Audio CDs Into iTunes
Follow these instructions to get music from your CDs into iTunes.
To import music from an audio CD into iTunes:
1 Insert a CD into your computer and open iTunes.
If you have an Internet connection, iTunes gets the names of the songs on the CD from
the Internet (if available) and lists them in the window.
If you don’t have an Internet connection, you can import your CDs and, later, when you’re
connected to the Internet, choose Advanced > Get CD Track Names. iTunes will bring in
the track names for the imported CDs.
If the CD track names aren’t available online, you can enter the names of the songs
manually. For more information, see “Entering Song Names and Other Details” on
page 19.
With song information entered, you can browse for songs in iTunes or on iPod by title,
artist, album, and more.
2 Click to remove the checkmark next to any song you don’t want to import from
the CD.
3 Click the Import CD button. The display area at the top of the iTunes window shows
how much time it will take to import each song.
By default, iTunes plays songs as they are imported. If you’re importing a lot of songs,
you might want to stop the songs from playing to improve performance.
4 To eject the CD, click the Eject (C) button.
5 Repeat these steps for any other CDs with songs you want to import.
Entering Song Names and Other Details
To enter CD song names and other information manually:

can easily add the songs to iTunes.
To add songs on your computer to the iTunes library:
m Drag the folder or disk containing the audio files to Library in the iTunes Source pane
(or choose File > Add to Library and select the folder or disk). If iTunes supports the
song file format, the songs are automatically added to the iTunes library.
You can also drag individual song files to iTunes.
Note: Using iTunes for Windows, you can convert nonprotected WMA files to AAC or
MP3 format. This can be useful if you have a library of music encoded in WMA format.
For more information, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Organizing Your Music
Using iTunes, you can organize songs and other items into lists, called playlists. You can
organize them in any way you want. For example, you can make playlists with songs to
listen to while exercising, or playlists with songs for a particular mood.
You can also make Smart Playlists that update automatically based on rules you define.
When you add songs to iTunes that fit the rules, they automatically get added to the
Smart Playlist.
You can make as many playlists as you like using any of the songs in your computer’s
music library. Putting a song in a playlist doesn’t remove it from the library.
To make a playlist in iTunes:
1 Click the Add (+) button.
2 Type a name for the playlist.
3 Click Music in the Library list, and then drag a song or other item to the playlist.
To select multiple songs, hold down the Shift key or the Command (x) key on a Mac,
or the Shift key or the Control key on a Windows PC, as you click each song.
To make a Smart Playlist:
m Choose File > New Smart Playlist and defines the rules for your playlist.

Chapter 2 Music Features
Loading Music and Podcasts onto iPod
After your music is imported and organized in iTunes, you can easily load it onto iPod.
To set how music is loaded from your computer onto iPod, you connect iPod to your
computer, and then use iTunes preferences to choose iPod settings.
You can set iTunes to load music onto iPod in three ways:
 Sync all songs and playlists: When you connect iPod, it is automatically updated to
match the songs and other items in the iTunes library. Any other songs on iPod are
deleted.
 Sync selected playlists: When you connect iPod, it is automatically updated to match
the songs in playlists you select in iTunes.
 Manually music on iPod: When you connect iPod, you can drag songs and playlists
individually to iPod, and delete songs and playlists individually from iPod. Using this
option, you can load songs from more than one computer without erasing songs
from iPod. When you manage music yourself, you must always eject iPod from iTunes
before you can disconnect it.
Syncing Music Automatically
By default, iPod is set to sync all songs and playlists when you connect it to your
computer. This is the simplest way to load music onto iPod. You just connect iPod to
your computer, let it add songs, audiobooks, videos, and other items automatically, and
then disconnect it and go. If you added any songs to iTunes since the last time you
connected iPod, they are loaded onto iPod. If you deleted songs from iTunes, they are
deleted from iPod.
To load music onto iPod:
m Simply connect iPod to your computer. If iPod is set to sync automatically, the update
begins.
Important: The first time you connect iPod to a computer, a message asks if you want
to sync songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and videos are erased
from iPod and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If you
don’t accept, you can still load songs onto iPod manually without erasing any of the
songs already on iPod.
Chapter 2 Music Features
21
While music is being loaded from your computer onto iPod, the iTunes status window
shows progress, and the iPod icon in the Source pane flashes red.
When the update is done, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.”
If you set iTunes to manage music manually, you can reset it later to sync automatically.
To reset iTunes to sync all music automatically on iPod:
1 In iTunes, select iPod in the Source pane and click the Music tab.
2 Select “Sync music” and then choose “All songs and playlists.”
3 Click Apply.
The update begins automatically.
Note: If “Only sync checked items” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only
items that are checked in your Music and other libraries.
Syncing Music From Selected Playlists onto iPod
Setting iTunes to sync selected playlists to iPod is useful if the music in your iTunes
library doesn’t all fit on iPod. Only the music in the playlists you select is synced to iPod.
To set iTunes to sync music from selected playlists onto iPod:
1 In iTunes, select iPod in the Source pane and click the Music tab.
2 Select “Sync music” and then choose “Selected playlists.”
3 Select the playlists you want.
4 To include music videos and display album artwork, select those options.
5 Click Apply.
Note: If “Only sync checked items” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only
items that are checked in your Music and other libraries.
Managing iPod Manually
Setting iTunes to let you manage iPod manually gives you the most flexibility for
managing music and video on iPod. You can add and remove individual songs
(including music videos) and videos (movies and TV shows). Also, you can load music
and videos from multiple computers to iPod without erasing items already on iPod.
Note: Setting iPod to manually manage music and video turns off the automatic sync
options in the Music, Movies, and TV Shows panes. You cannot manually manage one
and automatically sync another at the same time.
To set iTunes to let you manage music and video on iPod manually:
1 In iTunes, select iPod in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.
2 In the Options section, select “Manually manage music and video.”
3 Click Apply.

To remove a song, video, or other item from iPod:
1 In iTunes, select iPod in the Source pane.
2 Select a song or other item on iPod and press the Delete or Backspace key on your
keyboard.
If you manually remove a song or other item from iPod, it is not deleted from your
iTunes library.
To make a new playlist on iPod:
1 In iTunes, select iPod in the Source pane, and then click the Add (+) button or choose
File > New Playlist.
2 Type a name for the playlist.
3 Click an item, such as Music, in the Library list, and then drag songs or other items to
the playlist.
To add songs to or remove songs from a playlist on iPod:
m Drag a song to a playlist on iPod to add the song. Select a song in a playlist and press
the Delete key on your keyboard to delete the song.
Loading Podcasts onto iPod
The settings for loading podcasts onto iPod are unrelated to the settings for loading
songs. Podcast update settings don’t affect song update settings, and vice versa. You
can set iTunes to automatically sync all or selected podcasts, or you can load podcasts
onto iPod manually.
To set iTunes to update the podcasts on iPod automatically:
1 Select iPod in the iTunes Source pane and click the Podcasts tab.
2 In the Podcasts pane, select “Sync … podcast episodes” and choose the number of
episodes you want in the pop-up menu.
3 Click “All podcasts” or “Selected podcasts.” If you click “Selected podcasts,” also select
the podcasts in the list that you want to sync.
4 Click Apply.
When you set iTunes to sync iPod podcasts automatically, iPod is updated each time
you connect it to your computer.
Note: If “Only sync checked items” is selected in the Summary pane, iTunes syncs only
items that are checked in your Podcasts and other libraries.

Loading Videos onto iPod
You load movies and TV shows onto iPod much the same way you load songs. You can
set iTunes to sync all movies and TV shows to iPod automatically when you connect
iPod, or you can set iTunes to sync only selected playlists. Alternatively, you can
manage movies and TV shows manually. Using this option, you can load videos from
more than one computer without erasing videos already on iPod.
Note: Music videos are managed with songs, under the Music tab in iTunes. See
“Loading Music and Podcasts onto iPod” on page 21.
Syncing Videos Automatically
By default, iPod is set to sync all videos when you connect it to your computer. This is
the simplest way to load videos onto iPod. You just connect iPod to your computer, let
it add videos and other items automatically, and then disconnect it and go. If you
added any videos to iTunes since the last time you connected iPod, they are added to
iPod. If you deleted videos from iTunes, they are deleted from iPod.
You can set iPod to sync videos automatically when you connect it to your computer.
To sync videos to iPod:
m Simply connect iPod to your computer. If iPod is set to sync automatically, the update
begins.
Important: The first time you connect iPod to a different computer and have the
automatic sync option set, a message asks if you want to update songs and videos
automatically. If you accept, all songs, videos, and other items are deleted from iPod
and replaced with the songs, videos, and other items from that computer. If you don’t
accept, you can still load videos onto iPod manually without deleting any of the videos
already on iPod. iTunes includes a feature to sync purchased items from iPod to
another computer. For more information, see iTunes Help.

To use the earphones:
m Plug the earphones into the Headphones port. Then place the earbuds in your ears as
shown.
The earphones
cord is adjustable.
WARNING: Permanent hearing loss may occur if earbuds or headphones are used at
high volume. You can adapt over time to a higher volume of sound that may sound
normal but can be damaging to your hearing. If you experience ringing in your ears or
muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked. The louder the volume,
the less time is required before your hearing could be affected. Hearing experts
suggest that to protect your hearing:
 Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at high volume.
 Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
 Turn the volume down if you can't hear people speaking near you.

Tips and Troubleshooting
6
Most problems with iPod can be solved quickly by following
the advice in this chapter.
The 5 Rs: Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with iPod. Try these
steps one at a time until your issue is resolved. If one of the following doesn’t help,
read on for solutions to specific problems.
 Reset iPod. See “General Suggestions,” below.
 Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod in iTunes.
 Restart your computer, and make sure you have the latest software updates
installed.
 Reinstall iTunes software from the latest version on the web.
 Restore iPod. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page 61.
General Suggestions
Most problems with iPod can be solved by resetting it. First, make sure iPod is charged.
To reset iPod:
1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (slide it to HOLD and then back again).
2 Press and hold the Menu and Center buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the
Apple logo appears.
If iPod won’t turn on or respond
 Make sure the Hold switch is not set to HOLD.
 The iPod battery might need to be recharged. Connect iPod to your computer or to
an Apple iPod Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for the lightning
bolt icon on the iPod screen to verify that iPod is receiving a charge.
55
To charge the battery, connect iPod to a high-power USB or FireWire port on your
computer. Connecting iPod to a USB port on your keyboard will not charge the
battery. You can connect iPod to a FireWire port using the optional iPod Dock
Connector to FireWire Cable, for charging the iPod only. Loading information onto
iPod using FireWire is not supported.
 Try the 5 Rs, one by one, until iPod responds.
If you want to disconnect iPod, but you see the message “Do not disconnect”
 If iPod is loading music, wait for it to complete.
 Select iPod in the Source pane and click the Eject (C) button.
 If iPod disappears from the list of devices in the iTunes Source pane, but you still see
the “Do not disconnect” message on the iPod screen, disconnect iPod.
 If iPod doesn’t disappear from the list of devices in the iTunes Source pane, drag the
iPod icon from the desktop to the Trash (if you’re using a Mac) or click the Safely
Remove Hardware icon in the system tray and select iPod (if you’re using a Windows
PC). If you still see the “Do not disconnect” message, restart your computer and eject
iPod again.
If iPod isn’t playing music
 Make sure the Hold switch is not set to HOLD.
 Make sure the headphone connector is pushed in all the way.
 Make sure the volume is adjusted properly. If you see a lock to the right of the
volume bar, a maximum volume limit has been set. You can change or remove it by
using Settings > Volume Limit. See “Setting the Maximum Volume Limit” on page 26.
 iPod might be paused.Try pressing the Play/Pause button.
 Make sure you are using iTunes 7 or later (go to www.apple.com/ipod/start). Songs
purchased from the iTunes Store using earlier versions of iTunes won’t play on iPod
until you upgrade iTunes.
 If you’re using the iPod Dock, make sure the iPod is seated firmly in the Dock and
make sure all cables are connected properly.
 If you are using the Dock line out port, make sure your external speakers or stereo
are turned on and working properly.
If you connect iPod to your computer and nothing happens
 Make sure you have installed the latest iTunes software from
www.apple.com/ipod/start.
 Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.
Note: A USB 2.0 port is recommended to connect iPod. USB 1.1 is significantly slower
than USB 2.0. If you have a Windows PC that doesn’t have a USB 2.0 port, in some
cases you can purchase and install a USB 2.0 card. For more information, go to
www.apple.com/ipod.
56
Chapter 6 Tips and Troubleshooting
To charge the battery, connect iPod to a high-power USB or FireWire port on your
computer. Connecting iPod to a USB port on your keyboard will not charge the
battery. You can connect iPod to a FireWire port using the optional iPod Dock
Connector to FireWire Cable for charging iPod only. Transferring information to iPod
using FireWire is not supported.
 iPod might need to be reset (see page 55).
 If iPod is exceptionally low on power and you connect it to a USB port, it might
charge for up to 30 minutes before it turns on. The display could be dark for up to 30
minutes while it charges. Leave iPod connected until it charges sufficiently. If you
have an iPod USB Power adapter (available separately), you can use that to charge
iPod more quickly.
 If you’re connecting iPod to a portable or laptop computer using the iPod Dock
Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the computer to a power outlet before
connecting iPod.
 Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to doublecheck the system requirements” on page 59.
 Check the cable connections. Unplug the cable at both ends and make sure no
foreign objects are in the USB ports. Then plug the cable back in securely. Make sure
the connectors on the cables are oriented correctly. They can be inserted only one
way.
 Try restarting your computer.
 If none of the previous suggestions solves your problems, you might need to restore
iPod software. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page 61.
Note: You can only use an iPod Dock Connector to FireWire Cable only for charging
and not for loading songs and other audio and video files onto iPod.
If iPod displays a “Use iTunes to restore” message
 Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes on your computer (download it from
www.apple.com/ipod/start).
 Connect iPod to your computer. When iTunes opens, follow the onscreen prompts to
restore iPod.
 If restoring iPod doesn’t solve the problem, iPod may need to be repaired. You can
arrange for service at the iPod Service & Support website:
www.apple.com/support/ipod/service
Chapter 6 Tips and Troubleshooting
57
If songs or data load more slowly over USB 2.0
 If you load a large number of songs or amount of data using USB 2.0 and the iPod
battery is low, iPod loads the information at a reduced speed in order to conserve
battery power.
 If you want to load at higher speeds, you can stop loading and keep the iPod
connected so that it can recharge, or connect it to the optional iPod USB 2.0 Power
Adapter. Let iPod charge for about an hour, and then resume loading your music or
data.
If you can’t load a song or other item onto iPod
The song may have been encoded in a format that iPod doesn’t support. The following
audio file formats are supported by iPod. These include formats for audiobooks and
podcasting:
 AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P, up to 320 Kbps)
 Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format)
 MP3 (up to 320 Kbps)
 MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR)
 WAV
 AA (audible.com spoken word, formats 2, 3, and 4)
 AIFF
A song encoded using Apple Lossless format has full CD-quality sound, but takes up
only about half as much space as a song encoded using AIFF or WAV format. The same
song encoded in AAC or MP3 format takes up even less space. When you import music
from a CD using iTunes, it is converted to AAC format by default.
Using iTunes for Windows, you can convert nonprotected WMA files to AAC or MP3
format. This can be useful if you have a library of music encoded in WMA format.
iPod does not support WMA, MPEG Layer 1, MPEG Layer 2 audio files, or audible.com
format 1.
If you have a song in iTunes that isn’t supported by iPod, you can convert it to a format
iPod supports. For more information, see iTunes Help.
If you accidentally set iPod to use a language you don’t understand
You can reset the language.
1 Press and hold Menu until the main menu appears.
2 Choose the fifth menu item (Settings).
3 Choose the last menu item (Reset All Settings).
4 Choose the second menu item (Reset) and select a language.
Other iPod settings, such as song repeat, are also reset.
58
Chapter 6 Tips and Troubleshooting
Note: If you added or removed items from the iPod main menu (see “Adding or
Removing Items From the Main Menu” on page 9) the Settings menu item may be in a
different place. If you can’t find the Reset All Settings menu item, you can restore iPod
to its original state and choose a language you understand. See “Updating and
Restoring iPod Software” on page 61.
If you can’t import photos directly from your camera
 Make sure you have the iPod Camera Connector (available at
www.apple.com/ipodstore) and a USB digital camera.
 If your camera didn’t come with a USB cable, you’ll need to purchase one. See the
camera manufacturer’s website to find compatible cables.
 If photos aren’t importing, make sure your camera is turned on and set to the correct
mode for importing photos. See the instructions provided with your camera. Also
make sure the cable is connected firmly to your camera and to the camera
connector.
If you can’t see videos or photos on your TV
 If you imported photos directly from a camera or card reader to iPod, you can’t see
them in a slideshow on a TV. You must import photos from your camera to your
computer, and then load them to iPod using iTunes.
 You must use RCA-type cables made specifically for iPod, such as the iPod AV Cable,
to connect iPod to your TV. Other similar RCA-type cables won’t work.
 Make sure your TV is set to display images from the correct input source (see the
documentation that came with your TV for more information).
 Make sure all cables are connected correctly (see “Watching Videos on a TV
Connected to iPod” on page 36).
 Make sure the yellow end of the iPod AV Cable is connected to the video port on
your TV.
 If you’re trying to watch a video, go to Videos > Video Settings and set TV Out to On,
and then try again. If you’re trying to view a slideshow, go to Photos > Slideshow
Settings and set TV Out to On, and then try again.
 If that doesn’t work, go to Videos > Videos Settings (for video) or Photos > Slideshow
Settings (for a slideshow) and set TV Signal to PAL or NTSC, depending on which type
of TV you have. Try both settings.
If you want to double-check the system requirements
To use iPod, you must have:
 One of the following computer configurations:
 A Macintosh with a USB port (USB 2.0 recommended)
 A Windows PC with a USB or a USB card installed (USB 2.0 recommended)

 iTunes 7 or later (iTunes can be downloaded from www.apple.com/ipod/start.)
If your Windows PC doesn’t have a high-power USB port, you can purchase and install a
USB 2.0 card. For more information on cables and compatible USB cards, go to
www.apple.com/ipod.

On the Macintosh, iPhoto 4.0.3 or later is recommended for loading photos and albums
to iPod. This software is optional. iPhoto might already be installed on your Mac. Check
the Applications folder. If you have iPhoto 4 you can update it by choosing Apple () >
Software Update.
On a Windows PC, iPod can load photo collections automatically from Adobe
Photoshop Album 2.0 or later, and Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 or later, available at
www.adobe.com. This software is optional.
On both Macintosh and Windows PC, iPod can load digital photos from folders on your
computer’s hard disk, and import directly from most digital cameras (using the optional
iPod Camera Connector).
If you want to use iPod with a Mac and a Windows PC
If you are using iPod with a Mac and you want to use it with a Windows PC, you must
restore the iPod software for use with the PC using iPod Updater (see “Updating and
Restoring iPod Software” below). Restoring the iPod software erases all data from iPod,
including all songs.
You cannot switch from using iPod with a Mac to using it with a Windows PC without
erasing all data on iPod.

Chapter 6 Tips and Troubleshooting
If you lock iPod screen and can’t unlock it
Normally, if you can connect iPod to the computer it is authorized to work with, iPod
automatically unlocks. If the computer authorized to work with iPod is unavailable, you
can connect iPod to another computer and use iTunes to restore iPod software. See the
next section for more information.
If you want to change the screen lock combination and you can’t remember the
current combination, you must restore the iPod software and then set a new
combination.
Updating and Restoring iPod Software
You can use iTunes to update or restore iPod software. It is recommended that you
update iPod to use the latest software. You can also restore the software, which puts
iPod back to its original state.
 If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
affected.
 If you choose to restore, all data is erased from iPod, including songs, videos, files,
contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod settings are
restored to their original state.
To update or restore iPod:
1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of
iTunes from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
2 Connect iPod to your computer.
3 In iTunes, select iPod in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.
The Version section tells you whether iPod is up to date or needs a newer version of the
software.
4 Click Update to install the latest version of the software.
5 If necessary, click Restore to restore iPod to its original settings (this erases all data from
iPod). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.

Safety and Cleaning
7
This section contains important safety and handling
information for Apple iPods.
±
Read all safety information below and operating instructions before using
iPod to avoid injury.
Keep the iPod Safety Guide and the features guide for your iPod handy for future
reference.
Important Safety Information
WARNING: Failure to follow these safety instructions could result in fire, electric shock,
or other injury or damage.
Handling iPod Do not bend, drop, crush, puncture, incinerate, or open iPod.
Avoiding water and wet locations Do not use iPod in rain, or near washbasins or other
wet locations. Take care not to spill any food or liquid into iPod. In case iPod gets wet,
unplug all cables, turn iPod off, and slide the Hold switch (if available) to HOLD before
cleaning, and allow it to dry thoroughly before turning it on again.
Repairing iPod Never attempt to repair iPod yourself. iPod does not contain any userserviceable parts. For service information, choose iPod Help from the Help menu in
iTunes or go to www.apple.com/support/ipod/service. The rechargeable battery in iPod
should be replaced only by Apple authorized service providers. For more information
about batteries, go to www.apple.com/batteries.
62
Using the iPod USB Power Adapter (available separately) If you use the iPod USB
Power Adapter (sold separately at www.apple.com/ipodstore) to charge iPod, make
sure that the power adapter is fully assembled before you plug it into a power outlet.
Then insert the iPod USB Power Adapter firmly into the power outlet. Do not connect
or disconnect the iPod USB Power Adapter with wet hands. Do not use any power
adapter other than an Apple iPod power adapter to charge your iPod.
The iPod USB Power Adapter may become warm during normal use. Always allow
adequate ventilation around the iPod USB Power Adapter and use care when handling.
Unplug the iPod USB Power Adapter if any of the following conditions exist:
 The power cord or plug has become frayed or damaged.
 The adapter is exposed to rain, liquids, or excessive moisture.
 The adapter case has become damaged.
 You suspect the adapter needs service or repair.
 You want to clean the adapter.
Avoiding hearing damage Permanent hearing loss may occur if earbuds or
headphones are used at high volume. Set the volume to a safe level. You can adapt
over time to a higher volume of sound that may sound normal but can be damaging to
your hearing. If you experience ringing in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening
and have your hearing checked. The louder the volume, the less time is required before
your hearing could be affected. Hearing experts suggest that to protect your hearing:
 Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at high volume.
 Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
 Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
For information about how to set a maximum volume limit on iPod, see “Setting the
Maximum Volume Limit” on page 26.
Using headphones safely Use of headphones while operating a vehicle is not
recommended and is illegal in some areas. Be careful and attentive while driving. Stop
using iPod if you find it disruptive or distracting while operating any type of vehicle or
performing any other activity that requires your full attention.
Use caution when using iPod headphones with lanyards (sold separately at
www.apple.com/ipodstore). Certain activities may pose a risk of injury, especially if the
lanyard becomes caught or trapped.
Chapter 7 Safety and Cleaning
63
Avoiding seizures, blackouts, and eye strain If you have experienced seizures or
blackouts, or if you have a family history of such occurrences, please consult a
physician before playing video games on iPod (if available). Discontinue use and
consult a physician if you experience: convulsion, eye or muscle twitching, loss of
awareness, involuntary movements, or disorientation. When watching videos or playing
games on iPod (if available), avoid prolonged use and take breaks to prevent eye strain.
Important Handling Information
NOTICE: Failure to follow these handling instructions could result in damage to iPod
or other property.
Carrying iPod iPod contains sensitive components, including, in some cases, a hard
drive. Do not bend, drop, or crush iPod. If you are concerned about scratching iPod, you
can use one of the many cases sold separately.
Using connectors and ports Never force a connector into a port. Check for
obstructions on the port. If the connector and port don’t join with reasonable ease,
they probably don’t match. Make sure that the connector matches the port and that
you have positioned the connector correctly in relation to the port.
Keeping iPod within acceptable temperatures Operate iPod in a place where the
temperature is always between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F). iPod play time might
temporarily shorten in low-temperature conditions.
Store iPod in a place where the temperature is always between -20º and 45º C
(-4º to 113º F). Don’t leave iPod in your car, because temperatures in parked cars can
exceed this range.
When you’re using iPod or charging the battery, it is normal for iPod to get warm. The
exterior of iPod functions as a cooling surface that transfers heat from inside the unit to
the cooler air outside.
Keeping the outside of iPod clean To clean iPod, unplug all cables, turn iPod off, and
slide the Hold switch (if available) to HOLD. Then use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free
cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use window cleaners, household
cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPod.
Disposing of iPod properly For information about the proper disposal of iPod,
including other important regulatory compliance information, see the features guide
for your iPod.

Regulatory Compliance Information
FCC Compliance Statement
This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules.
Operation is subject to the following two conditions:
(1) This device may not cause harmful interference,
and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation. See instructions if interference
to radio or TV reception is suspected.
Radio and TV Interference
This computer equipment generates, uses, and can
radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not installed
and used properly—that is, in strict accordance with
Apple’s instructions—it may cause interference with
radio and TV reception.
If necessary, consult an Apple-authorized service
provider or Apple. See the service and support
information that came with your Apple product. Or,
consult an experienced radio/TV technician for
additional suggestions.
Important: Changes or modifications to this product
not authorized by Apple Computer, Inc. could void
the EMC compliance and negate your authority to
operate the product.
This product was tested for EMC compliance under
conditions that included the use of Apple peripheral
devices and Apple shielded cables and connectors
between system components.
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in
accordance with the specifications in Part 15 of FCC
rules. These specifications are designed to provide
reasonable protection against such interference in a
residential installation. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation.
It is important that you use Apple peripheral devices
and shielded cables and connectors between system
components to reduce the possibility of causing
interference to radios, TV sets, and other electronic
devices. You can obtain Apple peripheral devices and
the proper shielded cables and connectors through
an Apple Authorized Reseller. For non-Apple
peripheral devices, contact the manufacturer or
dealer for assistance.
You can determine whether your computer system is
causing interference by turning it off. If the
interference stops, it was probably caused by the
computer or one of the peripheral devices.
