I got my new IPod today!

I ordered it last week but it came today. IPod Video, 30GB, Black. And all I can say is...it is FUCKING AMAZING!!!!!

The music sounds better than ever!

The album art/photos are bright and detailed and beautiful and the screen is bigger and wider and better!

I don't know if this was available on the IPod Photos, but you can now save your on-the-go playlists!

As for the video....I loaded my .mov of the U2 IPod ad onto it, and it played beautifully!

My ownly complaints are that for whatever reason, you now HAVE to use USB to transfer files, Firewire doesn't work anymore with these IPods, and that that dock adaptor included in the box is a piece of plastic that doesn't even cover the G3/G4 docks completely. Might as well get the newer dock if you want a dock.

Other than that, this is a totally awesome IPod

I have a question, how do you download album art to your iPod?

You do it in ITunes. Let's say you want to put the AB cover on the 12 AB tracks...

1.In ITunes, go to Edit->Show Artwork - a box for artwork will appear in the bottom left hand corner of ITunes.

2.Highlight the 12 AB tracks in your music library.

2.Find a good AB cover image on the net.

3.Click and drag that AB cover image into ITunes into the Artwork box in the bottom left-hand corner.

4.It'll attatch that image to all 12 AB tracks. That's all there is to it. Just load the tracks onto your IPod like normal and when you listen to them, the artwork will be there. You can do this for any track(s) in your library.

Thanks for the instructions. Now, I suspect I will spend the next few weeks adding album art to my iTunes library.

I drool all over myself for a new video ipod but I fear I can't afford it at the moment. My pink mini is fantastic and has never given me problems :knockonwood:

But I looooong for a colour screen with prettiness
