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.

If that doesn’t work, restart your computer.

If that doesn’t work, you may need to restore iPod software. See “iPod Software

Update and Restore” on page 66.

If You See a Folder With an Exclamation Point on the iPod Display

iPod may need to be reset (see page 60).

If that doesn’t work, your iPod battery may need to be recharged. Connect iPod to the iPod Power Adapter and connect the adapter to a working electrical outlet. If you still see the folder, reset iPod again.

If that doesn’t work, you may need to update or restore iPod with the latest software.

Be sure you have installed the software from the iPod CD, or go to www.apple.com/

ipod to get the latest software. Then follow the instructions on page 67 to update or

restore the iPod software.

If Songs or Data Transfer More Slowly Over USB 2.0

If you transfer a large amount of songs or data using USB 2.0 and the iPod battery is low, iPod will go into power-saving mode. Transfer speeds will slow down considerably. This is normal.

If you want to transfer at higher speeds, you can stop the transfer, eject the iPod, and connect it to a power outlet using the iPod Power Adapter. Let iPod charge for about an hour, then connect it to your computer again to transfer music.

If You Connect iPod to a USB Port and It Doesn’t Work Correctly

You must use a USB 2.0 port or a FireWire port to connect iPod. USB 1.1 is not supported and is significantly slower than FireWire and USB 2.0. If your Windows PC doesn’t have a FireWire port or USB 2.0 port, you can purchase and install a Windowscertified USB 2.0 card and install it. For more information, go to www.apple.com/ipod.

If you’re using a Mac or a Windows PC that doesn’t have a high-power USB 2.0 port but has a 6-pin FireWire port, you can connect iPod to a FireWire port using the optional iPod Dock Connector to FireWire Cable, available at www.apple.com/ ipodstore.

To charge the battery, you must connect iPod to a high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer. Connecting iPod to a USB port on your keyboard will not charge the battery.

Tips and Troubleshooting

LL0354_UG.book Page 64 Thursday, March 3, 2005 4:44 PM

If your iPod is exceptionally low on power and you connect it to a USB 2.0 port, it may charge for up to 30 minutes before you can use it. Leave iPod connected until it charges sufficiently.

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.

If You Accidentally Set iPod to Use a Language You

Don’t Understand

You can reset the language.

1

Push Menu repeatedly until the main menu appears.

2

Select the fourth menu item (Settings).

3

Select the last menu item (Reset All Settings).

4

Select the second menu item (Reset) and select a language.

Other iPod settings, such as song repeat, are also reset.

Note: If you added or removed items from the iPod main menu (see page 47), the

Settings menu may be in a different place.

If You Can’t Transfer Photos Directly From Your Camera

Be 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.

64

Tips and Troubleshooting

LL0354_UG.book Page 65 Thursday, March 3, 2005 4:44 PM

If photos aren’t transferring, be sure your camera is turned on and set to the correct mode for importing photos. See the instructions provided with your camera. Also be sure the cable is connected firmly to your camera and to the camera connector.

If You Can’t See Photos on Your Television

If you transferred photos directly from a camera or card reader to iPod, you can’t see them in a slideshow on a TV. You must transfer photos from your camera to your computer, then transfer them to iPod using iTunes.

Be sure your television is set to display images from the correct input source (see the documentation that came with your television for more information).

Be sure all cables are connected correctly (see page 41).

If you’re using the iPod AV Cable, be sure the yellow end is connected to the video port on your television.

Note: Use RCA-type cables made specifically for iPod. Other similar cables won’t work.

On iPod, go to Photos > Slideshow Settings and set TV Out to On, then try again.

If that doesn’t work, on iPod, go to Photos > Slideshow Settings and set TV Signal to

PAL or NTSC, depending on which type of television you have. Try both settings.

If Your iPod Remote Isn’t Working

Make sure the remote’s Hold switch is off.

Make sure the remote is plugged firmly in to iPod, and that the headphones are plugged firmly in to the remote.

The iPod Remote can be purchased at www.apple.com/ipodstore.

If You Want to Use Your iPod With a Mac and a Windows PC

If you are using your iPod with a Mac and you want to use it with a Windows PC (or vice versa), you must restore the iPod software for use with the other computer using

iPod Software Update (see “iPod Software Update and Restore” 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 (or vice versa) without erasing all data on iPod.

iPod Software Update and Restore

Apple periodically updates iPod software to improve performance or add features. It is recommended that you update your iPod to use the latest software.

You can choose either to update or to restore the iPod software.

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 your iPod, including songs, files, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod settings are restored to their original state.

66

Tips and Troubleshooting

LL0354_UG.book Page 67 Thursday, March 3, 2005 4:44 PM

If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.

4

Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod software.

If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t see that iPod is connected to

your computer, reset iPod (see page 60).

If you want to restore iPod software and you don’t have an Internet connection, you can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you installed the software from the iPod CD.

To restore iPod software using the iPod Updater application that came on your iPod CD:

If you have a Mac, you can find the iPod Updater application in Applications/Utilities/ iPod Software Updater.

If you have a Windows PC, you can find the iPod Updater application by choosing

Start > All Programs > iPod.

Safety and Cleaning

Read on to learn about using iPod safely and cleaning iPod.

Important Safety Instructions

When setting up and using your iPod, remember the following:

Read all the installation instructions carefully before you plug your iPod USB Power

Adapter in to a power outlet.

Keep these instructions handy for reference by you and others.

Follow all instructions and warnings dealing with your iPod.

Warning

Electrical equipment may be hazardous if misused. Operation of this product, or similar products, must always be supervised by an adult. Do not allow children access to the interior of any electrical product and do not permit them to handle any cables.

LL0354_UG.book Page 71 Thursday, March 3, 2005 4:44 PM

Avoid Hearing Damage

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, which may sound normal but can be damaging to your hearing. Set your iPod volume to a safe level before that happens. If you experience ringing in your ears, reduce the volume or discontinue use of your iPod.

Do Not Use Headphones While Driving

Important:

Use of headphones while operating a vehicle is not recommended and is illegal in some areas. Be careful and attentive while driving. Stop listening to your iPod if you find it disruptive or distracting while operating any type of vehicle or performing any other activity that requires your full attention.

Connectors and Ports

Never force a connector into a port. If the connector and port do not 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.

Using the Power Adapter

Use only the power adapter that came with your iPod. Adapters for other electronic devices may look similar, but they may damage your iPod.

The only way to shut off power to your power adapter completely is to disconnect it from the power source.

Always leave space around your power adapter. Do not use this equipment in a location where airflow around the power adapter is confined, such as a bookcase.

Safety and Cleaning

71

LL0354_UG.book Page 72 Thursday, March 3, 2005 4:44 PM

When connecting or disconnecting your power adapter, always hold the power adapter by its sides. Keep fingers away from the metal part of the plug.

Before connecting the USB cable to the power adapter, make sure there are no foreign objects inside the power adapter’s USB port.

The power adapter for your iPod is a high-voltage component and should not be opened for any reason, even when the iPod is off. If the power adapter needs service,

see “Learning More, Service, and Support” on page 68.

Never force a connector into the power adapter USB port. If the connector and port do not 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.

About Operating and Storage Temperatures

Operate your iPod in a place where the temperature is always between 0º and 35º C

(32º to 95º F).

Store your 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, since temperatures in parked cars can exceed this range.

iPod play time may temporarily shorten in low-temperature conditions.

When you’re using your iPod or charging the battery, it is normal for the bottom of the case to get warm. The bottom of the iPod case functions as a cooling surface that transfers heat from inside the unit to the cooler air outside.

Avoid Wet Locations

Warning

To reduce the chance of shock or injury, do not use your iPod in or near water or wet locations.

Keep your iPod and power adapter away from sources of liquids, such as drinks, washbasins, bathtubs, shower stalls, and so on.

Protect your iPod and the power adapter from direct sunlight and rain or other moisture.

Take care not to spill any food or liquid on iPod or its power adapter. If you do, unplug iPod before cleaning up the spill.

In case of a spill, you may have to send your equipment to Apple for service. See

“Learning More, Service, and Support” on page 68.

Do Not Make Repairs Yourself

Warning

Do not attempt to open your iPod or power adapter, disassemble it, or remove the battery. You run the risk of electric shock and voiding the limited warranty. No user-serviceable parts are inside.

For service, see “Learning More, Service, and Support” on page 68.
