    After you resize the picture save it to Desktop. With iPodWizard open and ready to add your custom picture, move iPodWizard over so that you can see the picture you just saved then click the picture and drag it onto iPodWizard right on top of my custom picture and that should do it. Minimize iPodWizard and then bring it back up and that show your picture it there. I know it is confusing the way I type it but if you have any more trouble let me know and I will post step by step with pictures.

    Others have run across this same problem. You have a 5.5 Generation iPod, not a 5th Generation. Read all the post above you will see what I'm talking about.

    Guide Updated.

    I just improved the guide a little. I didn't make any changes to the files. I just tried to make it easier to understand. If anyone has suggestions on how I can improve the guide even better, let me know and I will try to add them.

    yoo ps2racer..i followed all the steps, even triple checked everything i did, and when i try to write it onto my iPod it tells me that some other program is using the iPod and i need to close it. However, i have closed all the programs. This has happened numerous times on different occasions...any suggestions??

    You need to have all windows closed. The only thing that should be open is iPodWizard. Is iTunes set up to open when you connect your iPod? If so, you need to connect your iPod, close iTunes, then open iPodWizard. If you are still having the problem the only other thing I know for you to try is press ctrl, alt, and delete, and see if any other programs are running.

    You do not need the seven files. They were used to fix a problem with the first firmware I put out. All problems are fixed. The only files you need are all in the All In One download on the very first post of this forum.

    How did you check the generation because I am sure that error 1,22,13836800 means you do not have a 5th generation. Both the 5th generation and 5.5 generation look the same. There are only small differences in the firmware.

    Sorry it took so long to type back. I do not know, it's been to long ago. There's different things pulled from different firmwares. There is even some parts pulled from the new classic iPod firmware.

    As for you eullyce08. If you are getting this "Error writing firmware! Code: -1, 22, 13836800" you have the wrong firmware on your iPod. There is nothing I can do.

    I've been trying to get some games on my Ipod without success.

    It's an 80gig classic 5th generation.

    I backed up everything, and restored the Ipod so I could start at square one. Everything works except I get the same error message that everyone else has been getting when trying to write the firmware to my Ipod:
    "Error writing firmware! Code: -1, 22, 13836800"

    I tried both 5 and 5.5 firmwares, but no luck. I just downloaded the latest version of iPodWizard, so I'm assuming there's no problem with that. Has anyone have any thoughts on why the firmware isn't writing properly?

    i have an answer for you.
    it is not writing properly because the program they gave you was wroong .
    answer this question is your ipod 5.5 generation or 5 generation.
    in my next message i will give you a link where you could download the program and then get games on your ipod.
    trust me it will help
