how to normalize volume on my PC?  own classic 160gb ipod and iphone and shuffle but all the music is at different level and i love using my bose headphones so it can get rough.  i tried the sound check on iTunes but with no luck at all.  also tried the sound check on the iPod but no results either.  i must say that this is very dissapointing and that apple does not offer anything like iVolume for PC.  or do they???  please please help...

iPod classic, Windows 7

    Sound Check is designed to work with .mp3, .AAC, .wav, and .aiff file types and the volume data is stored in the ID3 tag.

    What is the format of your music?

    No, its is not Vaio, but the music format, as I mentioned earlier, it worked only with these 4 music format types, so you have to convert them to these types, for soundcheck to work.

    The easiest way, is to group your music into playlist, then select all the song in playlist, then create MP3 version.

    Refer to this Apple support Article on song format.


    Have a nice day!

    Yes, it is hard to get user friendly and intellignet flow process, be Apple Help line or documents. If you hires thousands of engineers from all over the world, and tell them to produce good documentations for their flow process that would be friendly to lay end users, I think you may get a 10% chance if success.


    A typical example is the minimum volume article, where users complaining that the volume is still too loud at 0%


    My Apology, if I can't help you, with whatever experience I have, as I'm just an end user like you, trying to help others end-users, who comes to this sites, trying to find the magic one touch solution to their problems.


    Anyway good luck with your transition to other media player.
