    Dear Windows iPod 5G or Nano users,

    I was wondering if any of you could do some tests for me using your 5G iPod or iPod nano. Its a test for a lyrics program I created which got fairly popular (which I wont link here to avoid being called a whore) and I want to know if the issues one of my testers is having is simply because of a problem with his iPod or is it the process of using Windows.

    Heres how you can test:
    Connect your iPod to your computer.
    Close iTunes when it opens.
    Navigate to your iPod drive from My Computer
    Make sure you have hidden files and folders viewable.
    Go to iPod_Control\Music\
    In there open any of the folders you want.
    Your going to see files with numbers followed by their extensions. Please find an MP3 file.
    Click the MP3 file, right click it and push properties.
    Then, click "Summary" and make sure that you push Advanced>>.
    If Advanced is already clicked then you will see a <<Simple button
    Now, make not of the Artist, Album, and Song so you can later check on your iPod.
    In the Lyrics field, enter about 10 lines of random words.
    Click Apply and then Ok.
    Undock your iPod.

    Do the lyrics show up on your iPod when you play the song?
    What iPod are you using?
    What operating system?
    What iPod software version?
    What format is your iPod?

    I really appreciate it

    Note this is in relation to this thread:

    Tested it and it didn't seem to work, but it may have something to do with the ID3 tag version than anything else. The song I tested had an image in the tag but it would not show up on my ipod though itunes displayed t corrrectly. when i edited he lyrics using windows noy i can see the album art on my ipod for that particular song.... wierd

    Ok thanks. Try this

    Load iTunes with your iPod connected, and pick a different song. Click it, then click Tools> Convert ID3 tags, and select the newest ID3 tag available, 2.4.

    Then try the same steps above.
