DIsplaying iPod song names on Samsung Wiselink

by ipodUzer / December 25, 2008 4:06 AM PST

I've got my iPod playing on the Samsung LN-S5296D but the song names displayed are each four random letters. The song names are correct on the actual ipod but the four letters on the tv that show up for the song have nothing to do with the song name. Does anyone know how I can get the actual song names from the ipod to show up?

Thank you!

4th Gen...?
by Samsung_HD_Tech Samsung staff / December 26, 2008 1:51 AM PST

It's probably a 4th Generation.

Unfortunately, the new Gen4 Nano and Classic units have additional DRM (Digital Rights Management) that restrict information. Apple made the changeover a few months ago, and these issues have begun surfacing.

The Apple representative that I was "moved up the chain" to would not discuss the internal changes (of course!) or what limitations could be imposed as a result (which would have been nice) except to say that it "protects the consumers better", so I don't have a clear answer to deliver to iPod users.

HI Did you connect using Wiselink Pro. If so, do you think you could explain how you did this so I can figure out how to connect using an iphone.

I believe the DRM technology in the 4th Gen Nano and Classics carries the same limitations as the iPhone and the iTouch.

I didn't clarify that above, but that's the best information I have now. Let me know if it does work - I'd be interested to hear.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
