    have a 2nd Gen Ipod Touch - Best thing ever =)

    but I have a couple of problems that may have been adressed before
    but -

    1. When I play NOVA VODCAST| PBS podcasts ( only certain ones) like Brain Trauma or Stem cell Or SAVING HUBBLE The ipod shows -- random white dots then it crashes and takes quite a bit of time to reboot -Are you guys getting the same thing?- The shows are quite good- but they seem like malicious videos?

    2.Why can't I delete songs?
    3. I have a video on my ipod but the cover art for it is from some other TV shoe I got from itunes but then deleted. Only for 1 video , odd

    4. When I go to Cover flow - certian albums just dissapear when they're at the center however they appear. Also in cover songs are listed under the album but cerrtian songs when played dont display the album

    5. The time changes whenever I sync- Its annoying _ anything other than opening itunes beforehand ?

    6. Randomly the home screen button doesnt go home when apps are open
    I can double tap to get the little play etc tap music and its still stuck
    take a photo ie snap - freezes -

    Ahh so many things wrong - help me please!
    -Thanks
    and how would you guys recomend invisible shield?
    and does any of this warrant a exchange/replacement
    (would a usb connection thats a little bit um pulled and showing wires be replacable)

    Much Aprreciated =):apple::D:lol:

    #4 should be fixed once you upgrade to 2.2. I had that problem in 2.1 but not it's gone.

    Are you playing the podcast off of Safari or your music app?

    And you're not supposed to be able to delete music directly from your iPod.

    Also, because these issues seem very strange, a restore my have to be done.

    I have never experienced any of those problems.
    You won't loose any data if you from backup.

    The albums themselves are not disappearing, it's a problem with the album artwork. You'll still be able to play the tracks, but instead of the normal art appearing on the screen a black box, for some reason, is displayed instead.

    I had the same problem and a restore fixed it for me, the artwork for the offending tracks now appear again.
