Re: USB input
I got my '13 2LT last week. I also have the 80GB ipod (5.5gen; the oooold Video) and I have issues with it as well.
When I plug it in, it indexes fairly quickly, however it only shows ONE artist, album and song (Etta James - At Last). However, all of my playlists show up with all songs in tact.
If I play an album, artist or 'shuffle all' before plugging in, I can continue doing just that, but when I navigate away within MyLink, I cannot go back to it, I only get my playlists, or a single Etta James tune.
My girlfriend has an 8gb nano (the square style, not long) and it works just fine, although not all the artists show up.
I like using bluetooth just fine, but I don't care for Pandora and I can only get so many songs on my Google Play account (although, now that I type that out, Google's 20,000 is more than the 12,000 I have on my ipod). Hmmm.
