RE: ipod photo stalls at apple logo

Trust me, i understand your loss :)
Had a Nano in High-school, one day i just lost it, and never found it. I've been out of the loop since then, except some brief flirtations with the Nano 2g, a family member has, and now an classic. It fits me perfectly, with it's FLAC-Playing capabillities and it's awesome storage space. And the port itself seems to get better and better :) Hopefully, it will soon be promoted to stable, although i am uncertain why it isn't at this point.
Anyone who can provide me with a reason for that ?

Good luck!
