Chapter 6.  Using Advanced Features  >  Customizing Your iPod Settings

Customizing Your iPod Settings

The Settings menu in the iPod’s main menu offers ways to customize your iPod settings. You can change the main menu to have more choices, set the timer for the backlight, set the audible click for the button clicker, and more. Choose the Settings menu from the main menu. The Settings options include:

  • About: Displays information about the iPod, including number of songs, how much space is used, how much space is available, the version of the software in use, the serial number, and the model number.

  • Main Menu: Allows you to customize the main menu. For example, you can add items from other menus, such as “Songs” from the Browse menu, to the main menu. You can turn each menu item on (to appear in the main menu) or off.

  • Backlight Timer: You can set the backlight to remain on for 2 seconds, 5 seconds, or longer by pressing a button or using the scroll pad. You can also set it to Always On.

  • Contrast: You can set the contrast of the iPod display by using the scroll pad to increase or decrease the slider in the Contrast screen. If you accidentally set the contrast too dark, you can reset it by holding down the Menu button for at least four seconds.

  • Clicker: When on, you hear a click when you press a button; when off, you don’t hear a click.

  • Language: Set the language used in all the menus.

  • Legal: Display the legal message that accompanies Apple products.

  • Reset All Settings: Reset all the settings in your iPod, returning the settings to the state they were in originally. However, your music and data files on your iPod are not disturbed.
