Apple iPod Classic 160GB - Black. 4.8 5 255 297
Simple but great! Can't comment on battery life yet as haven't had item long enough. Brilliant product. 31 July 2014
Excellent media centre I have over the years had many different media devices. This is by far the best. Easy to understand and use. Superb audio quality and although a relatively small screen good quality visual playback. Overall money well spent. 22 July 2014
Excellent in the car. Excellent to play in a car via the aux input. It took all my 18,000 tracks from my computer (High quality MP3) with room to spare! 29 August 2014
Worth spending hi, I bought my classic 160GB a few weeks back and am really very happy with its excellent sound quality and a huge space for storing music. My entire albums are being dragged into it so all in one. The only thing I really dont like about it is the limitation of supportive file format. Unfortunately, it doesnt support flac file so wav is the alternate option for lossless files (for me). overall excellent !! 08 July 2014
Not sure yet I have loaded 1700 tracks and on its second charge the battery gives conflicting info when plugged in it reads full when cable out it reads only quarter full so not sure at the mo.. Customer service on purchase good 29 July 2014

How would I set it to be triggered to a song when the alarm goes off? i.e. pause on tune? My alarm is the Philips AJ3231 and it has a jack to fit and an aux setting.

Answer: 
Hi,

I would advise resetting your iPod classic.

Slide the Hold switch, the switch at the top left of the iPod, to "on" (so it's showing the orange). Then slide it back to hide the orange.
Hold down the Menu and center buttons at the same time.
Hold them for 6-8 seconds, or until the Apple logo shows up on the screen.
Let go of the buttons at this point. The Classic is restarting.
You may need to hold down the buttons again if the iPod still isn't unfrozen.

Any further problems contact customer services or the manufacturer themselves.

I hope this is helpful

Thanks for using Q&A

Hi - given that it uses a hard drive, is the classic suitable for use during eg fast walking/jogging or will it be liable to interrupted playback? I have an older model which seems a bit unreliable when I am moving about - playback stops or pauses. Are the newer models liable to that? Thanks.

Hi Gordy,
I have looked into this for you and can advise that it is not possible to remove the EU volume lock, as Apple produce EU released devices with this to conform to regulations.

Answer: 
Hi Wong, yes, you can put your own music on this iPod. Firstly download the latest version of iTunes onto your computer, then either transfer your personal music from CDs or other devices to the iTunes Library, or you can download free or paid music from the Internet. (It doesn't have to come from the Apple Website). Drag song tracks from your PC music folder into the iTunes Library. Connect up your iPod to your computer and it will recognise your iPod Library and copy the music accordingly.
