    I noticed on Apple's website that the new iPod, iPod Nano, and iPod Touch all have the firmware that enables the user to use the coverflow function with there iPod. I was just wondering if there is any hope for use older iPod users (5th Generation Video iPod) of getting this feature on our iPods? Thanks!

    1. This has been asked so many times today. Use the search button. It helps
    2. To answer your question: no.

    1. Be nice to the newbie
    2. It most likely will be hacked onto there. Never say never

    I doubt it will even happen. It wouldn't work fast enough on a 5g to be any good at all.

    Plus, who cares that much, I think cover flow is kinda pointless. It is cool, and it is one of the first things I show off on my new Nano, but I don't use it to search through all my albums. It takes to long. I know what albums I have, I don't need to see them.

    I agree, I doubt there will ever be a hack for the 5G and Coverflow as it stands right now is just a party trick. It doesn't sort per album or per album artist it sorts per artist which means there album covers for every artist you have on your iPod... useless.
