Currently Being ModeratedMay 12, 2006 8:28 AM (in response to feedmec00kies)Please, PLEASE do not direct me to this article about setting the maximum volume limit. I've already read it and tried to follow it.
Why did you try to follow it? You obviously did NOT read it.
The very first line is, "The new 1.1.1 software update for iPod nano and Fifth Generation iPod provides an easy way for you to set a maximum volume limit..."
You have an iPod Photo, yes?
Furthermore, the volume limit doesn't seem to work perfectly.
SInce you don't have the volume limit, how would you know?
I'd assume that it would automatically force the volume back down if I cranked it up to 100%,
Why would you assume that? To me, a limit means it wwould prevent the volume from going above a certain preset value, not allow it to go over and then drop it down.
but it does it randomly, sometimes 5 minutes after I changed the volume.
Is it doing this in the middle of a song or when w new song comes on?
Perhaps you are overloading your speakers and they notch down?

Sorry, but that's incorrect. The iPod photo was the first iPod that had a color display and the ability to display stored photographs. Apple later stopped referring to it as the "iPod photo" and called it the "iPod with color display".
The 5th generation iPod is just that. Apple haven't titled this model anything other than that, although it's commonly referred to as the "video iPod".
Hence the confusion and why some folks often post in this forum, and also the "iPod with color display" forum when they have an issue with the 5th gen iPod.iMac 20" 2GHz Intel Core Duo; 2GB ram;, Mac OS X (10.4.7), Maxtor 600GB ext hd; iPods 60GB (video); 60GB (colour); 4GB nano. Radio/remote.
