    BREAKING NEWS

    I just installed the iPod nano software 1.1 update ("bugs fixed")... guess what? No whine! Before the update I could hear the annoying tone from an arm's length... no I can only hear a soft and hardly notable tone when I press the iPod nano directly to my ear.

    Get the update (check iTunes 7)!

    It's the "flatspeaker" that is fixed at the back of the case.

    Just updated, no more whine! And to think I was trying to send it back to Apple, but couldn't because of a postal code error issue on their site.

    I can still hear the whine if it's right beside my ear, but I don't often listen to my iPod that way

    I'm very very very disappointed, indeed.
    My two nanos are still whining, no matter which firmware I have on it.
    Tomorrow I'll bring'em to Apple to be refunded.

    awww man... the 1.1 firmware didn't fix it

    my 8G nano still buzz, accompanied with even louder squeaks when switching songs

    should i return it...?

    If you can only hear it next to your ears then live with it, you shouldn't notice it in normal use.

    So don't I need to request a repair?

    Hi everyone

    I've not read the backlog so apologies if this has already been mentioned.

    I have a Palm Tungsten E that makes a high-pitches whine after half a minute and only stops when it is switched off. I have had one warranty replacement and the problem persists. Palm say it is the screen that is making the noise and they cannot fix it so...

    ...I'll get me coat...(runs away)

    Ok so I bought an 8 gig and noticed it made the high pitched noise and exchanged it for another 8 gig hoping for a silent Nano... No luck...

    I returned my second one to the store for my money back. I will not buy one until this is fixed, when it is I will definitely purchase a new one.

    Apple please do something about this... Honestly I don't care about a 40 percent brighter screen or the 24 hour battery life; I will be willing to sacrifice some of that for a silent Nano!

    i have the same frustrating problem. its not overly loud but it can certainly be heard in a silent room. I rang up customer support & they told me to go back to the store to get a replacement. So today I went back and got a new one. At the store I opened the new one and to my shock it also had the same problem. The store says they cannot keep opening new iPods for me to check, so I don't know what to do at this stage. Perhaps I will get my money back and wait for a few months; hopefully the engineers at Apple will have solved this problem by then.

    Hi,
    I just bought a 4G and it was whining.......returned it to Costco for exchange, all others tested were also whining!
    I decided to keep this one and exchange it in a month or so.
    Meanwhile, I read these posts, tried the update of firmware, and YES!!!!!!!!!!!!! It worked!!!!!!!
    No more whine!!!!!
    I would advise everyone to try the update before exchanging.
    Worked like a charm!!!
    Thanks to all who posted
    Much appreciated!
    Angie
