Apple iPod Classic / 6th Generation

The 6th Generation iPod Classic is among Apple’s full-sized iPod line of multimedia devices. It was with this generation that the “Classic” suffix was added to the model name. The 6th Generation Apple iPod Classic was released on September 5, 2007 and was the first generation to feature an anodized aluminum front plate rather than the previous models’ polycarbonate plastic material.

The 6th Generation Apple iPod Classic measures 4.1 x 2.4 x 0.41 inches and weighs 4.9 ounces. It comes with a built-in Li-ion battery that takes about 4 hours to charge.

The gadget features a 2.5-inch QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) full color LCD display with LED backlight. It is available in 80 and 160 gigabyte versions in either silver or black. The silver color of this generation replaced the brand’s “Signature iPod White” color.

It supports skip-free playback of a number of audio formats including AAC, protected AAC (from iTunes Store), MP3, MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, and 4), Apple Lossless, WAV, and AIFF. It also supports a large number of video formats. Apart from this, the device can also be used to sync up to 25,000 iPod-viewable photos.

  • How can I tell a 6th generation 160 GB Classic from 7th?

    I understand that the 6th generation 160 used flash memory and was plagued with problems. In the 7th generation, they converted to a hard drive, and tried again. Can anyone verify if this is true? How can I tell the 6th from the 7th generation models?

  • Ipod 6th generation 120gb classic

    I just bought a refurbished Ipod from a reputable dealer for my sons' birthday. He has downloaded some songs and maybe 10 TV (1/2 hour) episodes. When he tries to download more (TV) the Ipod erases some of the older ones. He has , I would assume he has plenty of memory left (120GB seems like a lot). I had him when I was 50 and he is 13. I downloaded the manual but of course it makes no sense to me ---- computer illiterate boomer. Is he doing something wrong or do we need to return it ? The seller said he would take it back but I don't feel like rewrapping it and a trip to the post office. Thanks for any help. Lew
