Is your iPod Photo making weird noises? You’re not alone. There have been multiple reports from iPod 20 and 40 gig owners complaining of a noise anytime their iPods reloads the buffer for a track. Apple knew about the strange audio issue, but it seems they failed to fix it before releasing the iPod Photo and U2 Special Edition iPod.
I am honestly shocked to hear that Apple is failing to acknowledge this faulty feature with their recent products. It also leads me to believe they were definitely feeling the heat from rival manufacturers in the digital music player market. The release the iPod Photo and the U2 Special Edition iPod without fixing this issue first was sloppy.
