I need some nerdly advice. I bought an ipod mini about a week ago (4gb) and I 've had trouble with it from the start. I installed the software on my windows pc and I immediately had trouble getting the ipod to communicate with windows. I had issues where Itunes is supposed to open up when you connect your ipod to your pc, but it didnt do it. After playing games, I got the ipod to talk to itunes and was able to transfer some mp3's. The MP3's went over ok but I continue to have problems communicating with itunes.
To rule out a software/pc problem, I installed the software on another pc and tested it. I got the ipod to work 1 time with itunes, then after that it stopped working. I have read on ipodhacks.com that ipods are well known for being troublesome. Many people have had to return the first one or two ipods they have owned due to similar issues.
I would like some advice from fellow ipod owners out there...have you had any problems with your ipod? What models have you had good/bad luck with? If you dont like the ipod, what mp3 player do you recommend?
Thanks for your comments. Dont bother too much w/trying to troubleshoot mine...I'm going to return it to bestbuy tonight...
