iPod, part deux

[ This post sat as a draft for a while. Might as well send it out. ]

So, it's been about a month since I got the iPod. Here's the latest:

  1. The iPod locks up when I try to install music on it. I took it to the Apple store in the local mall, and they admitted that connecting an iPod to a PC seemed to be a bad idea.
  2. Trying to make life as simple as possible on the poor iPod, I connected it directly to my media server (instead of my laptop, which reads the files over the network). I don't know why, but it seemed to like this more. The good news is that I finally can listen to all of my songs, but my media server didn't have my playlists...
Probably 80% of my songs have meta data now. What a pain.

Another problem discovered with iTunes:
  1. When you update the meta data on the playing song, it stops playing. Can't they buffer up a few seconds when I hit 'Save'?
