20 Most Recent Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player - Page 6 Questions & Answers


This is a response to all thoes with the problem of ipod videos stopping randomly and acting as though the video had ended. (please excuse any spelling or grammer errors that may be involved in this post)
I have reciently noticed alot of topics on this and other sites that had issues with the video on the ipod. After syncing a video that is a proper mp4 format, it seemed to work fine, it even began to play but after one or less minutes the video would stop playing and act as though it was finished and had reached it's end. It would happen at the exact same point every time and you could fast foreward past it and it would continue playing, only to find the problem in another spot a few minutes later. I had this problem with each and every video that I synced and could not play any of them, this problem irritated me and as I found out alot of others who had the same problem. I could find no solution that had yet been found after searching many sites that involve help with the ipod. After some research I soon found and solved my problem. The problem is that the ipod will only accept videos that have a video bitrate of less than 768 kbps. This is what causes our problem as stated above. This would mean that 512kbps would be the ideal for watching videos. (every video that had a video bitrate of 512 kbps (or lower) always worked and had no issues whatsoever) Only a few 768 kbps videos will work and some of them will not. So to fix the problem you need to find somthing that will reformat your video to a video bitrate of 512 kbps or lower. The current one that I use is called "Jodix free ipod video converter", this will change your favorite non mp4 videos into mp4s and just be sure to set the video bitrate on the converter to 512kbps or lower. Also use this program to change your already mp4s into a video bitrate of 512kbps or lower. (Just be sure to set the video bitrate to 512kbps or less by sliding the bar to lower quality for video.) This should make your videos continue playing for full enjoyment of your ipod. (with video) Please respond with any and all questions. Thank you for your time, I hope this is useful and solves the problem. Sorry for being long winded with my answers, I do this to ensure full understanding of my explination. /\/icho.

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine the type of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI and WMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is an incompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to a format that your MP3 player uses. After video conversion then copy the video files to your MP3 player using the USB cable from your computer.

The iPod A1136 is the fifth generation iPod from Apple that uses a click wheel to scroll through your device's media library, and may occasionally lock up when you attempt to play a song or display a photo.


This error error occurs when the hard disk is unable to access the information and stalls while opening a file.


A reset of the device usually corrects the problem, as it clears the device's memory and any errors.


Check your iPod's buttons to determine if the cause is due to a hardware error before resetting the device, as the problem may be due to the iPod's hold switch.


Slide the hold switch at the top of the iPod to the right, and slide it back to the left to ensure the switch is in the off position.


Hold down the center button in the click wheel, and at the same time hold down "Menu" on the click wheel.


Continue to hold the iPod's buttons until the device's screen shuts off, turns back on and shows the Apple logo.


Plug the iPod's connector cable into the dock connector on the bottom of the iPod.

Plug the other end of the cable into your computer's USB or FireWire port to charge the iPod.


Wait at least two hours for the iPod to charge. Launch iTunes on the computer, and click "Controls" of the iTunes menu.


Click "Eject iPod" in the sub-menu to disconnect the device.

The iPod takes four hours to completely charge its battery.


hope this helps

Hi bashamdbasha
If you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one IPod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data.

How to update iPod for Windows using Windows Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000

Download and install the latest version of iTunes.


When you have the latest version, use the iTunes menus to check for updates.

On Windows choose Help > Check for Updates.


Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod and open iTunes if it is not already open.


If you want to update your iPod on a PC, it must be formatted for a PC.

If it is not, you will see a message stating that your iPod needs to be reformatted. I


f you receive this message, refer to Restoring iPod to factory settings before proceeding.

If you are unsure of your iPod's format, refer to iPod: How to determine your iPod's disk format.

If iTunes detects that a newer version of iPod software is available for your model, you will be prompted to download and install the new version.


If you have already downloaded the newest version of the software, you may be prompted to install it.


Depending on the iPod model and whether you use USB or Firewire to connect to your iPod, you may be asked to leave your iPod attached to the computer for the update to complete, or you may be asked to connect the iPod to the power adapter.


Note: not all iPod models ship with a power adapter. Be sure to follow the onscreen instructions to complete the update.


During the update process, you will notice that an Apple logo and progress bar appear on the iPod display.


Note: this may be difficult to see since the iPod's backlight will be turned off.

Once this is completed, you can resume normal use of your iPod.


If you notice a different icon on the iPod screen, refer to iPod iconology or what does this picture on my iPod mean? and the follow the related instructions.


hope this helps

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.

Apple iPod... | Answered on Sep 07, 2012


Press and hold the top and center buttons at the same time (upwards of 30 seconds), until the screen turns on (assuming it's charged, and also doesn't have water damage).

If that doesn't work, plug it into your computer, and do it again. This time, when the screen comes on, let go of the top button, and it'll place the device in recovery mode.

(look up instructions on how to place the device in recovery mode)
