    Question Can American iPods display Chinese?

    Does anyone know? Once uploaded to the player is the firmware capable of displaying Chinese fonts from songs?

    Yea iPods can display a ton of languages. You can change the entire iPod to different languages too.

    My ipod CAN display Chinese. However, it fails to display Chinese 90% of the time. There's a particular process to get iTunes to render Chinese font correctly, and unfortunately I don't recall exactly what works and what doesn't.

    you have to convert the ID3 tags over to Unicode...that should display the chinese characters on the ipod.

    you can download the free tools to convert here:
