iPod video v1.2.2 update

Apple today released a minor update to its software for the iPod video. The company only said that the update brought "bug fixes" in its documentation, but some users report the ability to sync iPhoto Events (limited to recent events). Some users without latest iTunes 7.5 software on Windows 2000/XP/Vista machines may display no songs after the update, but updating to the latest iTunes -- not compatible with Windows 2000 -- resolves the problem for many; however, it appears that Windows 2000 must downgrade to version 1.2.1, according to a detailed posting on Apple's discussions forums that describes a method to "trick" iTunes into restoring with a previous version of the firmware (older versions are usually stored on startup drive).

    The software version for the iPod video (classic) as stated is v1.0.2 (NOT 1.2.2).

    It is the iPod Touch that was upgraded to software v.1.2.2.

    Do some checking...

    No, it's the 5th generation and iPod classic that get the new updated file: the iPod touch is at v1.1.2

    My iTunes (v7.5) is reporting that the iPod touch is current and my 5th gen iPod is waiting to be updated and Apple's software update website ( confirms this as well.

    Sync iPhoto events sounds promising.

    Blank smart playists?

    There was a show-stopping bug for me in 1.2.1, smart playlists that evaluated to no songs being listed have NEVER been listed ON my iPod, but with 1.2.1 they did. It took me a while to figure it out, but I eventually found a way to backtrack to 1.2.

    So my question is, is this bug now gone? Do smart playlists that evaluate to no songs be listed on the Pod? I ask because having to do a wipe and reinstall means a LOT of wear loading back all my songs (50G worth).
