Ask Max: Can my 3rd Gen 20GB iPod play video?

Asked on 04/14/2009:

Hi Jacob

Cool support webpage!

I recently bought a great IPod 3rd gen 20Gb blue and wanted to know

if this model can run video/AVI/etc files? Seen a lot of web sites

for converting DVD video files for IPod use but haven't seen any

confirmation that this model M9244LL can handle it.

Thanks - Scott


The third Generation iPods could not handle video or pictures. Those features were added several generations of iPods later. I still own my 30GB 3rd Generation iPod but its primary duty is to play music in my car. Your iPod is certainly a good MP3 player but it was only designed with music in mind.

Hope that is not too disappointing for you.
