Hello all,

For the last five weeks I've been All but pulling my hair out in trying to remedy why my iPod Classic 160 (not the 120) randomly hard resets during normal iPod functionality--menu browsing, playlist browsing, settings customisation, etc. But, no matter what, and which operation, the iPod will, on its own, hard reset itself.

Now, mind you, I've made various trips to the local Apple Store. Three of which have served to exchange the Classic 160 for a brand spankin' new one. After each new one, the random reset fiasco began all over again. On my latest trip to the Apple Store, I brought my PowerBook G4 with me. The 'Genius' told me that my iPod resets may probably vanish if I rename my playlists and/or songs/artists without the special characters.

So, if this is the case/solution, just what are the acceptable characters and which are not allowed in my names for songs, artists, playlists, folders/subfolders?

PowerBook G4 1.5 GHz/1GB RAM/OS/X (10.4.11)
