Ipod Classic Buffer Overload with apple lossless

My 160GB Classic occasionally pauses or stalls for a few seconds much like the buffer is overloaded and is reloading. The pause is intermittent (never the same place in same song), it lasts about 2 seconds then the song resumes right where it left off.
My Ipod is loaded with Apple Lossless songs which all play fine on my Mac.
The genius bar has been no help. Reloading and/or upgrading the software on my ipod has not fixed the problem (genius bar suggestion).
Has anyone had a similar experience?

I don't think the pauses have anything to do with Apple Lossless encoding. I get these pauses on occasion with 32kbps audiobooks.
Enjoy life,
Steven

  • My ipod classic turns on with apple logo then shuts off about 30 seconds later, when plugged in my windows and itunes will not recognize it.

    earlier my itunes told me that my files were corrupted and I needed to restore, so I did.  In the middle of the restore I lost internet connection. Now my computer and Itunes will not recognize my Ipod and if it is not plugged in when I turn the Ipod on it only shows the apple logo then shuts off after 30 seconds.  If it is plugged in it will charge, but Itunes and Windows will not recognize it.  I have tried the menu + select shutoff multiple times with no change.  All it will say while it is charging is do not disconnect.

    The clicking sound is your iPod Hardisk, trying to retract and find the boot sector unsuccesfully.
    Hopefully, you can do the iPod Disk Diagnostic as in this great post by tt2., it wont fix your problem, but let you know, how dire is your Hardisk health.
    So only as a last resort, one way, to get the stuck Hardisk head free, is to bang the iPod on a rubber mouse pad, when you reset it, but do it at your own risk, some very lucky guys got it working again for the next 14 months, like myself.

  • HT2305 Problem  with syncing Ipod classic in Itunes with Windows 8

    I am having problems getting my Ipod classic to sync with Itunes.  Is 2.0.4 the current firmware for me to use with my Ipod using Windows 8?  If not, please let me know what firmware I need to use.  Thank you.

    Hey catwoman001,
    Thanks for the question, and great troubleshooting so far! iPod software version 2.0.5 is available for the iPod classic 160GB (Late 2009). If this is your model, you may want to update the iPod. If you are having issues with your iPod, the following troubleshooting assistant may help:

  • Connecting iPOD classic to TV using Apple Component cable

    I have a 80g ipod classic and an apple component AV cable. I am trying to connect this to an TV with component video inputs. This TV is not an HDTV. I have attached the bl gr r cables in the correct position. I am getting a scrambled picture for NTSC and a split picture for PAL. based on my location I am sure that I should be using NTSC.
    I brought my iPOD into a local apple store and he was able to plug it in to an HDTV there with no problem so I'm pretty sure that niether the ipod or the cable is defective.
    My question is:
    Is the ipod classic only compatible with an HDTV using the component cable? If so, will it work using the composite cable?

    The dock is only good so you can use the remote. I don't know what the problem is with your Standard TV's with Component Inputs ... I've tried two different ones, also different brands, and they worked. I did make sure to change the iPod Video Settings to "TV Size = Standard". If it's set to Widescreen, that may account for the problem.
    Otherwise, I'd suggest returning the Component cables and getting the Composite ones ... or just get the Composite ones as well. Personally, I think Apple totally screwed us all over by not just adding ONE dang Composite Video out cable to the AV Cables and allowing the Component Out to have a HD/Standard switch, much like most of the Game Console AV cables available. I don't know why they didn't do this, especially since we've got about 2 years before EVERYONE starts upgrading to HD. I guess they're just hoping to rake in some extra money by not making the Component AV Cable more capable.

  • Ipod classic wont work with Itunes

    This is my first ipod purchase and I am not pleased, its 2 days old and still isn't working. I did exactly how the instructions set out how to set it up. I plugged the ipod in, it charged for a few minutes, and a menu popped up on the screen for my language, I selected it and then it went to the connected screen, and continued to charge, I loaded itunes, nothing appeared, so I decided to let it charge to full, after it had been fully charged, still nothing, I have done everything apple have suggested, reset ipod, unistalled itunes, reinstalled, turned off the ipod service and turned it back on again, used a different USB port, itunes just will not find my ipod, therefore I cannot set it up to add files to it. I am extremely disheartened by how incredibley difficult this has been as this is my first apple product

    When connecting to your Mac, make sure it is a high power USB2.0 port on the CPU body, do not use the USN port on the keyboard or any USB Hub.
    If you are connecting to a MacBook Pro, only one USB port can provide enough resource for the high Drain device like the iPod. The other USB port is shared internally with other IO devices.
    Given the huge  amount of iPod Classic sync issues, I would recommend, that you dont use any USB port with other devices, when you are syncing or Restoring any iPod Classic.
    So with the above info
    Reset you iPod while connected to the High power USB port.
    When iTunes comes up and prompt you to Restore, please do so (this will fix any hardisk filesystem corruption)
    Good Luck!

    I plugged my ipod video into my xBox 360 and

    This happened to me aswell, but it happened to me when I plugged it into the PC but same problem. what you have to do is move the 'Hold Switch' to put it on hold and then move it back again and then hold both the 'Menu button' and button in the middle of the click wheel. then it will turn off and then come up with the Apple logo and then it will work fine and you can try again. (P.S: If it doesnt show the Apple logo just try pressing any button

    My IPad 2, IPhone 3GS ans iPod  no longer work with apple TV, I have 2 apple TV in my house and for he last 3 weeks the iPod was the only one we could use for appleTV now none of them works, the apple TV icon does not show up any more. Re-started everything.

    Ok thank you so much, for your timely response.
    RESPONSES:
    1)   When I set up my iMac, I did not transfer any data directly from my windows PC.  I simply used the same iTunes login and account.  I have access to all of the files via the "Purchased" section of the iTunes store.  If I click "Download Previous Purchases"  text, I can download ALL of the purchases I have ever made.
    2)   I have the Apple TV 2, so good news, question answered.  I thought maybe it was the Apple TV 1, but it is the Black model, so bam.  Good response for you.  Well the whole damned reply is an awesome response, just pointing out that one piece of awesome.  I stated that it was an Apple TV 2, and yet you were still good enough to figure I could be mistaken, and provide me with knowleedge just incase.
    QUESTIONS:
    3)   So can my iMac not stream the data directly from itunes, without download?  Apple TV can, but perhaps that is something among many things that maker it unique, and awesome.
    SERIOUSLY.... THANK YOU... 
    I work in the computer support section for the Military.  The only problem is we use Windows , lol.  Well that and i've been gone for nearly 6 months on recover.  I go back next month though I hope.  But working in that field gives me the abilty to judge responses that run inside the same vein.  Your response was so awesome that I half thought I might have written it myself. 

  • HT1454 Can't see ipod videos from 60GB ipod classic.  I have Apple USB/video cable running through Onkyo receiver into Samsung TV. Video & TV out settings seem correct-I can see album cover, but no video. Is it possible to get itunes music videos to play

    Can't see ipod videos from 60GB ipod classic.  I have Apple USB/video cable running through Onkyo receiver into Samsung TV. Video & TV out settings seem correct-I can see album cover, but no video. Is it possible to get itunes music videos to play or do I need to get new ipod.   It works on my iPad and iPhone, but not through iPod Classic.

    Are these music videos located under Videos on your iPod?  Do it play other regular movies (if you have any on the device)?

  • How can I import photos from iPod that is supervised with Apple Configurator?

    I have configured a set of iPod Touches (and iPads) with Apple Configurator. User can take photos. But when the iPods are attached to a PC or Mac (including the Mac they were configured on), no pictures are visible or downloadable. The photos are visible in the Photos app on the iPod. What's happening?

    Anthony,
    I have found a workaround that just worked for me with iPads,
    Connect the iPad to the computer that supervises it, take screen shots (home key and off key pressed together) of the photos as they are displayed in Photos on your iPad and then they will be seen when you launch iPhoto on the host computer.
    It takes some time, but may be worth it, I just took screen shots of about 70 photos and they are now in iPhoto so I can export them now and use them.
    It took me 15 minutes.
    Hope this helps, Darryl

  • TS1425 I cannot eject my ipod classic after sync with i-tunes on my pc. It states some of the files are being used by other applications. What does this mean? How can I get it to eject?

    I cannot eject my new ipod classic after sync with i-tunes on my pc due, it states, to open files being used by another application. What does this mean? How can I get my ipod to eject?

    If it's a one-time "glitch," you can try restarting your computer with the iPod still connected.  Try ejecting again after the restart.
    If the problem recurs, you may have a process running (other than iTunes) that is accessing the iPod's storage.  When connected, the iPod's "disk" is like other mounted volumes.  This process may be some type of utility that continously monitors your mounted volumes for security reasons, such as to prevent access by malware.
    If you know of such a program that you have running in the background, there may be a setting to exclude your iPod's disk.

  • My iPod Classic is synced with an old iTunes account.  How can I transfer this music to my new iTunes account?

    My iPod Classic is synced with an old iTunes account.  How can I transfer this music to my new iTunes account?

    If you purchased all of the songs through itunes store, please follow these steps:
    1. Open up Itunes and Click on Itunes Store
    2. Once you're in the Itunes Store look to right side of the screen and you should see the word "purchased". Click purchased and you'll be sent to a purchase screen.
    3. Click on "All Songs" and then it will show all the songs you've downloaded. From there you just hit the button that looks like a cloud with an arrow on it, and it will download all the songs all over again.
