now you can add songs to the on-the-go playlist, while listening to the playlist, and it will add the song to the current playlist without having to restart it.

before, you had to stop the playlist and restart it to update the changes.

oh and the pops/clicks are completely gone!

now just waiting to see if it consistantly cuts off certain songs...

the backlight is still funky.. if you manually turn the backlight on by holding down the menu button, the backlight only stays on for a few seconds, even if you are continually scrolling through songs. the light should stay on until you stop pressing buttons (like the 2nd gen ipods).

oh well, maybe that will be the next firmware. i am happy anyway-

Don't worry about it: your channels will end up on the correct side regardless.

Geez, talk about your marketing ploy...I wish they would just release 2.0.1 for older gens already...it would be kinda nice. But I suppose that's how they make their money

I thought it was just to correct issues with the newest version anyway. Funny they don't even credit the update with fixing the clicks.

Does it seem to anyone else that there is a slight pause in between tracks that didn't exist before 2.0.1? I think that is the click fix at work. It must insert brief digital silence before each track. I guess it could just be an absence of the click that makes me perceive the pause.

I thought you were using a Mac/iTunes, lex? If so, you already have them backed up

With earlier versions I would dump my iTunes library off the laptop to save room. Later I was able to "upload" from the iPod. I haven't been too sucessful with the latest crop Ipod utils. It isn't such a big deal with the 60 gig PB now, just curious...
