Both 1st and 2nd gen touchs losing video/music

I have a first gen touch and a 2nd gen touch that are both losing music and video periodically. They are both set to manually manage music and seem fine when plugged in. After hitting the eject button in itunes sometimes they are wiped sometimes they are fine. They only work after doing a restore at which point you have to put everything back on. Both itunes and the ipod software are up to date. Is there any way to fix this?

I have the same question
1) ATV gen2 = good at netflix, issues with everything else
2) ATV gen1 = good at playing movies, music, works well with apple remote, no Netflix
i just set them both up thinking the best solution is to just flip between them with my universal remote, but that remote controls both at the same time even though only one is visible. Interestingly, the Gen3 remote doesn't mess with the Gen1 ATV.
So how do we make it so that our universal remotes can control EACH ATV without both at the same time?

  • 1st and 2nd Gen differences?

    What are the main differences between the 1st and 2nd Gen Touch? I'm getting ready to buy a 32gb Touch, but I can't figure out what is improved on the 2G. If it's nothing major, I'm just going to get a 1G and save $50.

    also, the 1st Gens have old software on them. if you get one you'll have to pay to upgrade to 2.0 and consequential software upgrades.
    external volume buttons, longer battery life, the design is slightly different - described as 'sleek and feeling better in your hand'
    enough reasons i would have thought for you to go the whole hog and get a new one.

  • Question about firewire AC adaptor and iPod Nano (1st and 2nd gen)

    I have an AC adaptor from the Mini, model #A1070 W008A130 and I was wondering if it was compatible with both the 1st and 2nd gen Nanos.
    I've been unable to find any power specifications and just want to make sure I'm not going to burn both mine and my girlfriend's Nanos out when we charge them away from a computer.
    Thanks in advance.

  • Size difference of dock for 1st and 2nd gen

    Hi, I tried searching the forums but i couldn't find a specific answer to my question.
    I know that the dock for the 1st and 2nd gen is at a different place, but does anyone know if the exact size has changed? That is, if i have just a plug which was made for the 1st gen nano, can this plug fit into the 2nd gen dock pins?
    Any help will be great, thanks!

    All dock connectors are the same, so you can use the same cable.
    However, you asked about the dock which is not the same as the dock connector. The dock is this.

  • Using both 1st and 2nd Generation Shuffle on the same computer

    After owning a 1st Gen Shuffle for a number of years, today I decided to upgrade to a 2nd Gen.
    What I would like to know is, can I use both shuffles on the same computer, through the same iTunes program, using the same music library?
    There's nothing wrong with the 1st Gen unit, but I still want to use it as a back-up/secondary unit to the 2nd Gen one.
    I have yet to connect the 2nd Gen unit to my computer. Before I do I would like to know whether or not I can use both the old and the new units. Also is there anything special I need to do to allow this to happen.
    thank you.

    Nothing special to do. Connect new iPod and let it sync. Make sure only one is connected at a time.

  • Is there any different in home button between 1st and 2nd generation Touch?

    My 1st gen. Touch's home button is working, but the feeling of press it is not like press a button. The feeling is completely different from the 2nd gen. Touch that I played in store today. Is my Touch normal or defect?

    First, don't hang onto the hope that next year's MBP won't have an optical drive; instead, you'd be advised to purchase a 2011 MacBook Air, which doesn't have an optical drive but relies on SDD. If you need a CD/DVD drive, you can get that separately, if you need. The latest Air has received better reviews than anything else in the Apple lineup.
    I'm not an expert on the different brand of keys available. But you'll want to make sure the color is an exactly match to the model. Replacing thes keys is relatively inexpensive but tedious, you might do well to email sellers to guarantee the color and fit.
    Good luck with the repair!

  • Atv 2 1st and 2nd gen headaches

    i have an atv2 2nd gen amd an atv 2 1st gen, the 1st plays movies through itunes perfectly with no problems, the atv 2 2nd gen will not play those same movies, i have to air play from my pc to the unit for it to play.

    Is this with streaming local content or renting through iTunes?
    I was assuming you were doing the latter. If so, see below.
    If you set up the ATV to use a DNS other than your ISPs then yes that would be an issue, that's what I am trying to get at. It would not have to do with browsing but would affect streaming on the device.
    If you have set it up with the default DNS then that's fine.
    If you're using home-sharing check firewall and any anti-virus.

    As suggested take it in to see if it's a problem with your unit.

  • So am I correct in assuming that all of the Ipod touch 1st and 2nd gen are obsolete?

    I can't seem to download any apps for my second generation ipod touch. I have looked on forums and searched the internet on what to do with no avail. Please do not send me any messages saying that I cannot go any higher than iOS 4.2.1 because I know this and you will be wasting my time. Basically my question is what do the people do that own older ipods? Do we simply toss them out? I think that this is a little ridiculous, I paid for a product that I can no longer use simply because it is older.

    "Do we simply toss them out?"
    "I think that this is a little ridiculous"
    Since you don't just "throw them out", there is no "ridiculousness".
    "I paid for a product that I can no longer use simply because it is older."
    Baloney.  You can use the product, until it's no longer operational.  If it breaks, you can have it repaired outside of the warranty.

  • I am having problems streaming music to my apple tv (1st and 2nd gen). The music cuts in an out after a while of playing.  Any suggestions?

    I have a first gen apple tv and it works as advertised except for the streaming of music which would cut out/on/out......  I decided to buy a aptv2 and have the same issue.  I have tried using different wireless setups, ipod, iphone and laptop and the same issue happens.  Any suggestions?

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards, if applicable. Start up in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. You must hold down the shift key twice: once when you turn on the computer, and again when you log in.
    Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the startup volume is a Fusion Drive or a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to start up and run than normal, with limited graphics performance, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models. The next normal startup may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually login automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, restart as usual (not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • Too many problems with IOS 4 and 2nd gen touch

    Ok, to be honest, I was happy for the update to IOS 4 but now, not so much. My battery life has been running down faster than it usually does, my clock jumps ahead in time no matter what I do, I lost tons of pics because of them being taken off and back on, and my update took forever to do. Any help on any of these things would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hi Phil.Surf 16,
    Thanks for the question. Based on what you stated, it sounds like the iPod is not in iTunes. I would recommend that you read this article, it may be able to help the issue.

  • Ipod mini lcd difference between 1st gen and 2nd gen

    could someone verify for me the difference between lcd's. is the difference between the two the wideness of the lcd cable. ie: the first gen is smaller and the second gen is wider! am i correct? Thanks.

    Here are the differences between the 1st and 2nd gen mini.
    There's no difference in screen size.

  • Airplay works for phots and video, but not music on 2nd gen touch

    Upgraded to 4.2 on 2nd gen touch. I can send photos and videos/movies to AppleTV via Airplay, but not music. I can select AppleTV when playing a song on Touch and the music stops playing from Touch, but never plays from AppleTV. Audio works just fine for movies sent to AppleTV.
    Anyone else experience this?
    Support told me that this feature is not supported on 2nd gen Touch and I'd have to buy a new Touch. The Apple website says feature is supported. A second call to support and they said it is. ?????

    Im having a similar problem where after a period of time I can get neither my iPhone 4 or iTouch 2G to see the Air Tunes speakers on my Airport Express base station. Always works fine from my computer's iTunes though. What I found works is powering off and rebooting the phone / iTouch (not just locking it). When it reboots go to your music and maybe you'll see the Apple TV or Airport Express icon appear now. Works for me anyways. After a while, they will "forget" and I need to reboot the phone again to find it. I think there are kinks in the 4.2 iOS that need to be sorted out.

  • Differences between 1st Gen + upgrade and 2nd Gen?

    Hi all. I was looking into purchasing a new iPod touch, but before I do so, I was wondering if there is any difference between getting an iPod touch 1st generation and purchasing the software upgrade and simply purchasing a 2nd generation? Reason being that I can get a 1st gen much cheaper than the $10 that it would cost to get the software upgrades, so if I can do that it would be great.
    So is it a seamless upgrade or will there be some small differences between the two? Thanks in advance for the replies!

    Updating a 1st gen Touch to 2.1 is the way to go if you don't care too much about the primary differences, where the 2nd gen Touch has the speaker, external volume control, and slimmer at the edges. I've had both and am glad that I have updated to the 2nd gen Touch.
    Note that the 2nd gen Touch does not have the same charging circuit as previous iPod models, so if you have 3rd party chargers that rely on the 12V (firewire) pin on the iPod's dock connector, those won't work. For the 2nd gen Touch you need to have "Made for iPod" designated charging accessories which use the 5V (USB) pin of the connector. Chargers don't specify which pin of the connector they use, so if you go with a 2nd gen Touch be sure that any accessories you buy for it are designated specificatly for the 2nd gen.

  • 1st Gen and 2nd Gen - help me?

    Ok so i'm confused here...
    The 1st gen and 2nd gen iPod touches both have the same 128mb of RAM yes...
    So why is it that the 1st gen is apparently incapable of running iOS 4?
    Yes, i understand that multi-tasking, and wallpapers(?) are too memory-intensive for the devices with such a small amount of RAM.
    But come on, surely something like folders isn't totally 100% impossible for the 1st gen??
    I know that the second gen is running @ 121Hz faster than the first but i would've thought that folders require the use of the memory over the processor?

    I make no judgements about whether these devices are iOS 4 capable or not. Nor do I offer an opinion about the policy of which devices do, and which do not, upgrade. Nevertheless, it is Apple's policy, and I unfortunately I don't think you're gonna get the answer you seek here... Sorry.
    You could try a Genius Bar or AppleCare, but only if you seek a Monty Python-style ‘Argument Clinic’...
