    Everything is indeed so much faster. There is very little lag when accessing the menus, plus one song after another plays instantly even in the shuffle mode. I noticed that when the update was downloading it was a 56.6 MB file as I remember. That certainly is no small update!

    Well, the menus are a WHOLE lot snappier to me, even though I didn't think this was that much of an issue before, but with this update this should be a non-issue for most, I would guess. It's still a litlle slow going backwards to the top menus, but still not that bad. iTunes syncing is still a lot slower, although I don't have a problem with crashes and freezes in iTuns or the iPod itself, and the update worked correctly the first time. I think maybe I just got one of the good batch of the Classics.

    It THINK the sound quality is better, although it's early morning and I'm not sure my ears have woken up yet. I did a blind A/B test using the same song and headphones with my 5G iPod, and I was having more trouble guessing which was the Classic and which was the 5G - with the 1.0 firmware I could tell every time. The sound now seems to have more spatial width and seperation, and not as ambient and muddy. This is just from about 15 minutes listening, so it could be a phony result. I'd be embarassed if in fact Apple didn't make any changes to the sound in this update, he he. The volume is still much lower than the 5G, though.

    Same thing happened to me. Tried downloading the update, but it wouldn't install and kept giving me the 1430 error, but in my case it told me to restore. So, after restoring and then moving my library over again, it works. The classic does seem to have a treble boost. It is almost like the default eq is very scooped.

    That update probably includes software for ten models!

    In any case, I am glad that some of you are seeing improvements.

    I decided not to wait, and ordered a 5.5G iPod 80GB, as I have dockable accessories and AV-out issues as well.

    Just installed, no problems with the installation. Definitely a quicker interface now. It reset some of my settings but no big deal.

    Cover Flow also needs to have the same feature as scrolling through the artist's list in a speedy fashion. I like how the list's will start displaying the letters for a quicker more accurate search. Cover Flow needs this badly.

    Installed it, but no fix for the pictures. It still won't display my normal resolution photos except in slideshow mode - widescreen pictures and any odd-shaped pictures show up fine.

    Just to add:

    No improvememt for Apple's camera-connector - still not working!
    Same with Belkin's Microphone

    Contacts with photos still crash the iPod

    But faster menus. Unfortunately not usable in alphabetical order.

    Poor piece of work....

    Thanks for this info! My Classic has already been picked up for "return-to-sender", so reports as yours are my only way of knowing when it's "safe to buy another one again". Seems it's not that time yet. Well, Apple's loss, not mine...

    Poor piece of work....


    The iPod? Aw, that was rather nice and sleek (i'm owning the iPod Photo, and the Classic is a huge improvement in terms of form factor). The firmware? For a 0.0.1 version increment (and how long? A week? Two?), at least some good came out of it...

    I've not given up on the Classic yet

    Yeah, unfortunately no fix for the photo display yet. Hopefully they will come out with one soon, its getting pretty frustrating not being able to view my pictures properly.

    The disk mode trick saved me! Thanks so much!

    Ok so I saw the update this morning and I’ve applied it. My ipod was working fine before hand but now the playlist browser is so slow that it's almost unusable. It takes minutes now to scroll down the list. Is there a way to restore this to the old version without formatting the ipod?
  • trevisthomas Level 1 Level 1
    ...ok so... i just restarted my ipod and now it seems ok.

    Hm, now i'm wondering if this issue was a more complex problem than i thought. I had it connected to my Clarion head unit on the drive into work this morning... i wonder if that was what caused the slowness.

    Man, two steps forward...

    1.0.1 has virtually rendered my brand new iPod 'Classic' unusable.
