Apple has released firmware update for 5G video iPod which claims to fix the following bug that Apple believes was present:
Some customers may experience an issue where a Fifth Generation iPod will reset when attempting to play certain MP3 files or podcasts encoded as MP3. This symptom may occur with any MP3 file encoded at 32Khz or higher with a mono channel.
I tried to play some files which had mono channel and were encoded in 32KHz but I could not find any problems with the older firmware. I think Apple should have been more specific to the bug which they are referring. One more thing I am not sure of is whether this bug which they are referring to affects the newer 5.5G iPods.
I request all my readers who are using 5G video iPod to upgrade to the latest firmware. The latest firmware for you 5G iPod can be updated only using the iTunes 7 or later so get yourself latest iTunes from here.
