Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2007 8:09 AM (in response to Paulo1105)The menu navigation on the iPod is noticeably faster. The Coverflow has improved, which i guess is cool, i don't really use it. TV Out is also unlocked, however i haven't tried a cable to use it yet. These issues are all fine and dandy, but my biggest problem was listening to my iPod through iTunes at work without iTunes freezing up at the 8 or 9 second mark of every song. I could live with a slow menu, but iTunes is still locking up. If the updates are being released at a rate of once every 2 weeks and barely fixing these issues, one can deduce that the problem will probobly not be completely fixed for at least a few more months. I wish I wouldn't have purchased my 160GB Classic until later. I am very unhappy, as my job is relentlessly boring, and without being able to use iTunes, I feel I am at high risk for going postal. These issues need to be resolved, as they may potentially lead to worse problems in which the entire space time continuum could cease to exist.POS from Work, Windows XP

After my iPod ended up in the constant restarting loop I forced it into Disk Mode.
After this I plugged it into my Mac via the USB.
This launched iTunes and I was able to restore the iPod.
Everything was fine (though a bit slow) after this.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2007 9:44 AM (in response to Aldo Monterrey)yes evilaldo my exact usage pattern at work too!
Hit Ctl-T to turn on the visualizer then it never freezes and you can still skip to the next song, skip to the previous song, & pause with the visualizer on. Hit Ctl-T again to turn off the visualizer to use the rest of the iTunes interface (just don't do it around the 9second point, because then you have to wait the dreaded 1/2 minute freeze)
And just cover up the visualizer part of the window with another window so you don't fallinto a zombie trance.hp, Windows XP
Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2007 2:55 PM (in response to Robert Todd2)I had the same constant reboot problem.
Initially a switch to Disk Mode seemed to have corrected the problem but it has re-appeared.
I'm reluctant to upgrade to 1.0.2 if it doesn't make things better. I have held off synching since my last successful sync.
I'm already on my second classic and if things don't get better I'll ask for my money back and wait until next year when they get the bugs out.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 8, 2007 3:58 PM (in response to gordio)Battery life now is way shorter! Is it a problem of the firmware making the battery effectively work more, or just a related related to the energy level icon?Macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.10), Ipod 4th Generation 20GB, Ipod Classic 160GB
Currently Being ModeratedOct 9, 2007 1:33 PM (in response to Paulo1105)Have those of you with "shorter battery life" actually tested your battery life in terms of hours? Apple has adjusted battery meters in the past to more accurately reflect usage. Just because your meter said full before the update doesn't mean it was being reported accurately.
Not saying there isn't a bug, but offering a possible answer. If your iPod goes from full charge to dead in 2 hours, obviously there's a problem, but if your actual play time is as expected, then the battery meter is merely more sensitive post-update.G5 Quad, Powerbook 12", Mac OS X (10.4.10), I'm so glad I don't have to meet The Internet People.
Currently Being ModeratedOct 9, 2007 7:42 PM (in response to QWallyTy)Well, it seems clear they are fixing the bugs that they think might dissuade a purchaser playing with an iPod in the apple store. Coverflow, for example, seems to be useless as a practical navigation aid for 160 gig of music. But for impressing people in a showroom, it's first rate.
The bugs that people won't discover until after they pay may be much lower priority.160G iPod Classic, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedOct 11, 2007 6:20 PM (in response to Paulo1105)What's new is that now when my iPod Classic is docked to my JBL radio at work, it goes to "sleep" about every 2 minutes and stops playing. There's a whole other forum on that but overall, I'm not happy with 1.0.2... waiting for 1.0.3 or something better. Having to press play every 2-3 minutes while docked at work is a complete pain and makes it virtually unusable.Dell 6000 laptop, Windows XP, iPod Classic 80gb
Currently Being ModeratedOct 11, 2007 8:21 PM (in response to rkny)I have one of the new 80s and just updated my firmware yesterday. I charged my battery completely this afternoon (it died between yesterday and today), then left it in standby, using it for a total of about 15 minutes. When I looked at the iPod about an hour ago, it was more than 3/4 dead.
Definitely a bug because even if I had used the music I shouldn't have lost that much battery.HP Pavilion dv6275us, Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedOct 11, 2007 10:16 PM (in response to abacab1975)Im having the problem where all of a sudden random albums are at the back of cover flow. So **** anoying! I'm afraid to even use it after reading all of these other problems. Looks like Apple dropped the ball with 1.0.2
Currently Being ModeratedOct 11, 2007 11:53 PM (in response to sweptintoshadows)this has been talked about at least 2 times in this thread alone. This is actually something that they fixed! You probably have the compilations setting checked on the songs of that album. All compilations are put in the back. Just go to the settings of the songs in iTunes and make sure the songs aren't part of the compilation and it will behave as expected.PowerBook G4 1.5GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.10), 2GB RAM

Please re-instate the option to keep the backlight on when plugged into an Apple HiFi - it's a pain having to 'wake up' the screen to see what's playing.iPod
Currently Being ModeratedOct 13, 2007 6:59 PM (in response to kjgunn)So here is my 1.02 issue on my 160gb Classic.
I have about 20gb of data that I copied, 30gb of video (almost all purchased via Itunes) and approximately 32gb of Music. I was have about 5 xp/vista machines that I move this Ipod around on so I have it set to manually manage music and videos. I was at the hospital the other night (new baby) and I was playing music from the Ipod via Itunes. The laptop itself doesn't have alot of space so there is no music on the laptop really. Sometime during the night the music stopped. The next morning I checked Itunes and it stated that there was no music on the Ipod, but the usage bar graph showed approximately 82gb used as "Other" and it was orange. I shutdown Itunes, then the computer and rebooted and when it came back up it stated that Itunes was Syncing the Ipod. I gave it a few seconds and suddenly the usage meter dropped to 20gb from 82gb.
I went home later in the day and checked it on a different machine, and sure enough... only data remained. All music was gone, all video was gone. Well that's a pain as my library is scattered between a couple computers. So I plugged it into my primary machine and copied 32gb of music to it. When it was finished it, I ejected the Ipod and it showed NO music. Tried it again and same thing happened.
Finally I restored it to 1.01 and everything stays. I haven't the heart to go back to 1.02 to see if it was a fluke.
I came here to see if anyone else has experienced this?
Thanks in Advance.
Maybe I won't be in a hurry to sell my 30gb video... Why do I have a love hate relationship with every new Ipod?:), Windows XP Pro, 15 gb 3rd gen (still kicking), 60gb Photo (Life Support), 30g Video (Black) and 160g Classic (Black)
