    Hi, I have been trying all night to boost my ipod volume and nothing seems to work, and I dont know what Im doing wrong! I have a 4G European Mini Ipod, and the volume on a lot of the songs is absolutely pathetic!!

    I downloaded Gopod and uncapped my ipod. That didnt make a difference.

    I dowloaded EuPod and pushed the volume to the max......that had no effect whatsoever!

    I went into Itunes and changed the volume manually, pushed it up 100%.

    I even got back to bascis and tried different headphones but that's not the problem!!
    And Imod wont work for me because I have Windows XP.

    Id appreciate any help anyone can give me!! Thanks.

    Go see an ear specialist - you must be deaf!
    If EuPod removed the volume cap, and you pushed the volumes on the iPod songs via iTunes, then you really are deaf or there's something not right with the mini.
    Select a couple (2-3) songs which are particularly low in output, and push them in iTunes iteslf - are they any louder as a result?
    I can only imagine that the songs must be of low output anyway, but it's a bit of a stretch, that one.
    Are these songs off a CD? How does it sound when played through iTunes? Any louder than the same song in iTunes - shouldn't be?

    Im not deaf *cries*

    I am now after deleting everything and having to put them all in again cause someone said you have to adjust the spund levels before the songs go in.....I swear there is no difference! The songs are a mixture of Cd rips and Downloads.
    I am sooooo annoyed right now!!!!
    I have to totally rebuild my library and for what??!!

    I selected 2 songs which I can barely hear...one a download, one from a Cd, and doctored them with all of the above....they are still pathetic. *sulk. sulk.*

    This really seems odd. Have you tried anyone else's iPod to compare volumes? It may be that your iPod is faulty.

    If your i-pod is ok then you really are deaf mate. :D

    I have my mini up at three quarters along the bar and that is loud enough, if I accidently go to 100% I nearly shatter my ear drums. Do not use eu pod as it artifically increases the volume while Go Pod removes the EU volume cap.

    Ah.....you didn't need to remove the songs from the iPod - all you had to do was select each one from the iPod's Library when it is connected, in iTunes, then Control I (or whatever the PC shortcut is to Get Info).
    One thing I forgot about was do you have Sound Check on the iPod enabled? If so, disable it.
    But if those songs are low when played in iTunes itself (again turn off Sound Check) from the iTunes Library, then there's nothing you can do apart from move the Volume Adjustment slider fully to the right, in the Get Info panel's Options tab.
