Updating ipod classic
Before you start, check your i Pod’s hard drive is indeed starting to fail.
You can do this by accessing the diagnostic mode and running some tests.
The second is to complete the process by using i Tunes.
Plug in your i Pod, then navigate to the summary page and tick either “Enable disk use” or “Manually manage music and videos” in the options.
Apple’s i Pod is by no means the worst offender, but there is one huge drawback that users generally loathe (particularly among Windows users); it’s called i Tunes., the biggest problem for i Pod users is the alternatives struggle to sync music correctly.
Be warned, this is not an easy process, but what do you have to lose?
Aside from the obvious benefits, Rockbox also brings a host of other features to the table; support for more than 30 sound codecs (including FLAC and OGG Vorbis), the 10-band fully-parametric equalizer, advanced crossfading and even the ability to run games, read text files and theme your i Pod.
One of the biggest problems with MP3 players is battery life.
It’s incredibly easy to set up, and once it’s installed, your computer (and you music software of choice) will recognise your i Pod as a generic MP3 device instead.
You can then drag and drop your music, rather than using i Tunes to transfer everything.
