New option in music settings of ipod

Can apple create in new Patch for ios ipod option that will pause playback when volume set to 0 in ipod touch?

Agreed with roaminggnome. Can they? Sure. Will they? Good luck! People have been trying to get them to add some very basic and very widely called for things such as the ability to hide certain factory icons (stocks, game center, etc)... that'd be so, rudimentary, but they just won't do it for some reason. Another would be, say... toggles for frequently used functions like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G, etc. Again, users have come up with hacks (literally, by opening special internalized URL strings in Safari, then waiting for it to open settings and go to that screen). Again, users shouldn't be having to create homebrew hacks for such asinine, basic functionalities... but Apple rules the iWorld, and if they have their reasons for not wanting to do something, they won't do it.
I would personally find toggles for those mentioned above to fit perfectly at the top of the notification center (or wherever you choose to place them there, as well as an option to place the click-click-slide right to get to track controls, slide again to get to volume/airplay) -- vice versa as well -- have the option to place the toggles down where the music controls can be currently accessed. I think their task manager, while better than "no task manager" still could use some drastic user experience changes. Maybe an option to access the tasks via touch alone. I hate the button, it always clicks not enough or too many times. I can almost guarantee it'll disappear next generation... it's mechanical... (obviously the entire thing is mechanical) but it's a heavily used, pressure variance, open (crap can get in/around the button) causing malfunction or just... mal-experience for the user.
I may seem like I have a bit of a chip on my shoulder towards Apple, and I do right now... for good reason. They've still yet to fully fix the battery issues in their BRAND NEW product, and my iPhone 4 (no S) also now experiences major battery drain (it didn't with 5.0! ironic that the "battery fix" 5.0.1 firmware cut my battery life into about 1/3 or 1/4th instantly) -- and don't get me started about the stupid Wi-Fi sync error 0x000000074 or whatever it is that basically has made a good deal of users just have to shut off wi-fi sync. That was a major sell of the iOS 5!
Two MAJOR issues that are going on several months without resolution. I'm now considering doing something that I never (LOL, how ironic. The very error I'm complaining about pops up midsentence, interrupting me! I love it!) -- never before considered and that's jailbreaking my device now that courts have made it legal. I just hope I can downgrade to 5.0 firmware again. I have well... I'll not get into that but let's just say that I always stay prepared keeping backups of things I need lest Apple present another such fiasco as this.
The truly bothersome part about it all is that you can contact support all you want, or go look at the discussions that hundreds of users are posting to with horror stories, probably 100 pages easily (each) the threads on these invisible issues (to Apple).
I considered buying an iPhone 4S -- and was capable of doing so then and there -- but it took about 2-3 seconds of consideration before I remembered they haven't fixed the battery issue, the wi-fi sync issue, and I think their non-chalant attitude towards customer service (online at least, there are no "Genius Bars" within 100 miles of here, so I can't even tell you what one of those looks like) -- their attitude is poor. Their products are excellent and obviously I have bought in, and do enjoy the Apple devices I own, but as of now, no more Apple products for me until I (doubtfully) see an about face in their treatment of major issues (aka, "man up, Apple"! Admit there's a problem, and diligently work to fix it!) Don't deny the problem exists for 1-2 months, then say OK, it exists, but only for a super fractional like .000001% of users (using skewed statistics and non-logical conclusions and statements) -- then when the problem gets to be undeniable, take several more months to put out the first of 3-4 "fixes" before it finally resolves the issue (usually only partially, though).
So yep. As a Systems/Network Admin for some fairly decent sized companies (hundreds of employees each times nearly 50-100 companies on a need-based or maintenance/monitoring of their servers/backup systems, etc)-- Apple is getting some pretty bad publicity, as hundreds and hundreds of people who rely on my opinion in their decisioning process; as often they are not as technically saavy or educated/up-to-date on the latest happenings in the tech world (they have other things to worry about, that's what I/my coordinating admins are there for)... who are also quite displeased, btw.
Apple, you need to get it together and stop worrying about top dollar on your devices and start worrying about your customers, or your empire (granted, your vast... monolithic empire) will fall again. Remember, you almost were a mockery for a while, until the trend of the iMac picked you up a little, then your life saver... the iPod and its decendants saved your arse from oblivion). Any company who doesn't treat customers with respect, an open mind and a listening ear... will fall. Maybe not today, maybe not this decade... but longevity is not a blessing upon those who treat customers as pests.
So I've dissuaded probably 20... 25 people from buying an iPhone 4S or an iPad. Eh. Nothing to you... but when their children need phones, there's a good chance it could be Android. After all, I don't just slander and libel companies when I have empirical evidence that these problems exist, and have existed for months, leaving your hardware and software in a state of frankly, an "unusable" state for some users... others, like me, just grit their teeth and charge their iPhone for the 4th time that day, even though they've done everything possibly to limit the functionality of their device to use as little power as possible! It just works? What does? If it just worked I wouldn't be too scared to upgrade my other iPhone and iPod Touch to iOS 5. I refuse to do it until I am positive I can downgrade/preserve baseband or whatever I need to do; jailbreak it, so be it -- if you're not going to fix the problem, I can at least back down my firmware a notch to when I could charge my phone once a day instead of every few hours!
You've got one very dissatisfied customer here, but you'll never hear my tiny little ant voice in your sea of millions of iPhone users oblivious to what is actually going on or what is or isn't "normal" behavior! Some people think 3 hours of light usage is "good/acceptable". I had a friend (well, more than one) who did not know that heat was a battery's enemy. She would constantly leave it in her glovebox or in her car (where the ambient temps reach over 100 degrees F, much less the interior of a closed car -- her old battery lasted 30 minutes on a full charge. It was ridiculous. So, to her... 3-4 hours was fantastic!
Little does she know the specs read 8 hours TALK TIME give or take a margin for a new battery, and what.. 10 hours for the 4S, out of just recall memory? What a dream that would be! Trust me, friends... I have it all cut down to the bare minimum... push is off, I'm down to manual or (sorry iTunes error again...) 1 hour fetch. Screen is always at lowest possible brightness unless I'm out in the sun and physically cannot see the screen... Bluetooth is off at all times and is only cut on when in use then immediately shut off... push notifications are shut down to bare minimum that I can functionally handle... wifi is off when i'm in the car... 3g is off when I'm using wi-fi... location services, dare I even try to use those, I know better... I do a full cycle each month... in fact.. i have to do one every day! Multiple times! Every accessory is stock, so I'm not screwing it up with cheap $1.00 cables and chargers... and I keep the phone cool as possible at all times, esp during charging I keep wary. It's like having an infant to monitor. It really is.
Sorry to complain so much. It obviously just hit a nerve this morning. Here's one of my best buddies:
now make that pop up every 5-10 minutes, modal dialog box, of course, so it has to be dismissed before anything will continue. Most of the time I just have to discover it behind all the Windows. I've grown to expect it actually, so I'm pretty good at guessing what the problem is when all my stuff stops working. Not Windows anymore! (The same error exists on OS X as well, btw... so it's not just a "PC problem").
Typing alo-----.... (keyboard stops responding) AWWWW look who it is!!! Alright, I'll hit your OK button! Why do I even have iTunes open? I don't anymore unless I forget to close it after adding content. Probably should use something like the Birdie competition, or I wonder if the foobar2000 plugin works solid with iOS 5 yet? Ditch this garbage. I need to find an appropriate place to put this where it will be properly ignored by customer service and other Apple tech support. I suppose.... right here is fine.... inconspicuous, easily ignored... good as anywhere else, not like they give a you know what anyways about their customers... hundreds of them... having relentless software (so it seems, considering mine used to work respectably until firmware update) issues preventing them from using their expensive phone as a functional piece of electronic equipment... was an Apple fan. Now well... just look at the name, right? I'm done unless they clean their act really fast.
Enjoy your day, fellow stricken souls! May iLuck be on your side!

  • HT1329 My old computer crashed, and I have most of my music on my ipod, how  do i move it to my new computer.

    My old computer crashed, and I have most of my music on my ipod, that has been purchased, and downloaded music from my CD's. I also have music in my old Library on ITunes. How do I recover all of them, and transfer my music on my IPod, to my new Library.

    Lucky for you, I just found out how to get the music stored on your iPod by messing around with it. I'm not much of an Apple user (I only have a shuffle), so I'm not 100% sure it would work the same way as yours.. but it's worth a shot.
    if your iTunes didn't sync with your iPod yet,... that would be great..
    1, Make sure your iTunes does not automatically sync with your iPod (I don't know if this would help..)
    2, Click on your iPod and go to settings, check "Enabe Disk Use"
    Your iPod should now have a partition on My Computer called AFJCHAW's IPOD or whatever you named your iPod... If you go to that disk, you'll notice there's nothing in there.
    3, Click on Organize at the top right part of Windows Explorer(Windows 7, don't know how in XP..), go th the Folder and search options, view tab, and click on show hidden files, folders, and drives.
    If you go back to your disk, you should be able to find a folder
    4, It'll be pretty straightforward then. Go to iPod_Control/Music. You'll find folders there. Inside the folders are each of your music files (they're renamed but the Details would still be about the same).
    If you did get your music files back from this procedure, then, yay! it worked!!
    If you didn't,.... it should've worked..

  • I am trying to put the music from my ipod onto my new computer. After installing itunes and connecting my ipod touch a message comes up saying that my ipod is already synced with another library. What can I do to sync it with a new library?

    I recently got a new computer and got rid of my old one. I am trying to put the music from my ipod touch onto my new computer but keep getting a message saying that my ipod is already synced with a library and cannot be synced with more than one. How do I access that library on my new computer and if I can't are their other ways for me to put the music on my ipod into my new computer?

    Syncing to a new iTunes library or computer will erase your ipod. Only if you back up your iPod manually before syncing, you can restore your device from that backup again. A manual backup does not include the sync process.
    Disable autosync in iTunes, connect your iPod to your new computer and right click on it in the device list and choose backup. iTunes will backup your ipod without syncing.
    Transfer your purchases the same way, choosing "transfer purchases" this time.
    When you connect your iPod for the first time, all media content will be erased. But you can restore your settings and app data from your manual backup afterwards.
    Don't forget to set up at least one contact and event on your new computer to be able to merge calendars and contacts when you sync the ipod for the first time.
    Music is one way only, from the computer to your device, unless you bought the songs in itunes and transferred your purchases.
    There is 3rd party software out there, but not supported by Apple, see this thread:http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2013615&tstart=0

  • How can I restore all the music from my iPod touch to a new iTunes/computer?

    I have an iPod touch 4th gen running on iOS6, a computer running on Windows 7, and iTunes version 10.7.0.21 (newest as updated today).
    Basically my laptop got destroyed beyond repair, the laptop that my iPod was synched to.
    I have iTunes now on another computer, how can I get my music from my iPod to the iTunes on the new computer? Even getting it onto the computer will do at this point, as I don't want to have to download/rip CDs to get my entire music collection back.
    When my iPod is plugged in I can click on 'transfer purchases' but this only restores the apps to iTunes.
    When I had my old iPod classic, and was using an older version of iTunes, when I plugged my iPod into a new iTunes it said something along the lines of 'there is music on this iPod that is not currently in your iTunes, would you like to transfer to iTunes?' But there is no option like this now, I don't know if it's because its a different and newer iPod, or because a newer version of iTunes.
    Please tell me there's a way to copy all my music from my iPod to my computer, and preferably straight into iTunes so I don't have to input all the info again.
    Don'tcha just miss the old 'copy and paste music' mp3 players you had as a kid? *sighs at how complicated technology got*

  • How can I move music from my iPod to my new computer if my computer can't SEE the music from the source?!?

    I have read through lots of suggestions for moving my music from my iPod to my new computer...but can not seem to overcome a very difficult hurdle:
    When I connect my very old iPod to my computer and click on the icon to open it, only 3 folders come up:  Calendars, Contacts and Notes.  I cannot "backup" anything useful here!
    When I open iTunes, the program can see my iPod, and lists the complete library...but I cannot KEEP it in my computer!  WHY?!?
    When I go to iTunes > File > Library, I do not get a "backup" option to use to backup my iPod music, either.
    HELP, please.  I have spent hours fiddling around trying to figure out how to do this, and am getting crankier and crankier.
    Thanks in advance...

  • Is there a way to transfer music from my ipod to a new mac

    I had all of my music on both my ipod touch and iphone when my old computer crashed, is there anyway I can transfer that music from my ipod and iphone to itunes on my new mac so I don't have to re-download everything?

    Some of the information below has subsequently appeared in a document by turingtest2: Recovering your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device - https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3991
    Your i-device was not designed for unique storage of your media. It is not a backup device and media transfer was designed for you maintaining a master copy of your media on a computer which is itself properly backed up against loss. Syncing is one way, computer to device, updating the device content to the content on the computer, not updating or restoring content on a computer. The exception is iTunes Store purchased content.
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iOS device or iPod to a computer - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1848 - only media purchased from iTunes Store
    For transferring other items from an i-device to a computer you will have to use third party commercial software. Examples (check the web for others; this is not an exhaustive listing, nor do I have any idea if they are any good):

  • My computer crashed. So does this mean I can not add any more music to my ipod from a different computer without all the songs being erased? Can I sync my ipod to a new computer if I allow all the songs to be erased?

    My computer crashed. So does this mean I can not add any more music to my ipod from a different computer without all the songs being erased? The ipod works fine and now i got a new computer. So it seems like my only options are leaving my ipod in a state where i cant add anymore songs or erasing all my songs and trying to use my ipod from my new computer. Can someone please inform me on how to have my ipod work from a different computer, even if i have to erase my songs. Thanks.

    Yes, if you choose the Erase and Sync option (or restore your iPod) you will be allowed to sync your iPod with the new computer.

    One of the reasons why including your iTunes library with your computer's backup is a good idea. Use this link for future reference in this regard.
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1751
    iTunes includes an option to transfer iTunes content that was purchased/downloaded from the iTunes store from an iPod, iPad, and iPhone, but this is for iTunes content that was purchased/downloaded from the iTunes store only.
    First you need to authorize your new computer with your iTunes account with iTunes if you haven't already done so.
    With your iPhone connected and without syncing, at the iTunes menu bar go to File and select Transfer Purchases From - the name of your iPhone.
