Well I have cash. I'm gonna tell ya'll suckas what I'm looking for:

-Something with more than 20GB of storage
-Reliable, reliable, reliable
-Works great with Winamp (as in I can easily sync my music into it with Winamp)
-Isn't incredibly expensive


I really don't want an iPod. So anyone have something with the descriptions I posted?

I already have a 2GB mp3 player but that **** filled up a long time ago.

Creative Zen/Zen Vision, i've had good experience with them. Very easy to use, much more computer friendly than iPod's

...

Ipod


No seriously, a creative Zen or an Ipod Classic (and I'd go for the ipod since it's like 130 bucks cheaper here and has triple the storage, and it fits basically all you ask for)

I hear good things about Archos, and am planning on buying one if I get any sort of refund on my skipping-to-hell Classic. They have quite a bit of storage.



I've had 2 archos's and they both broke. They have poor software wich is slow and crashes thus the reason for monthly firmware upgrades. I now have an Ipod Touch which is fine but has more features than i need.

I say go for the Zen

But of course I don't want the touch one even though I'd like to surf the internet but one with the biggest storage is like 30GBs?

Classic man

It's not that I don't like iPods (I've never had one) it's just I DON'T WANT iTunes man!


Get foobar/winamp with a plugin and that'll do.


Besides, Itunes synch works fine with drag n drop but I know that foobar (and thus probably Winamp too) have plugins

I totally agree with him, iTunes is evil in binary. Seriously, get a zen, it's plug and play, just drop you're files in it and that's it. No syncing, no software, no drivers.

But why? iTunes is a great way to organise your music. I find Windows Media Player much more complicated.

Get the iPod Classic. I have one, and it's the best iPod I've ever owned. And it's got an enormous amount of memory, so you can have any music you want on there.
Fender Lite Ash --> TC Polytune --> Digitech Whammy V --> MXR Phase 90 --> EHX Small Clone --> Strymon Orbit --> TC Flashback X4 --> Rivera R55

so.... Drag and drop is evil in binary? kids these days, the only little bitch of Itunes is that it can take a minute to load if your PC isn't having a fast day.


Oh no, one minute, god forbid

Wait....do I need some kind of firewire port for the Ipod?


Ipods have a USB link cable included.


At least mine did, and my mates's, and my girlfriends's....


But seriously, check if Winamp has a plugin for the Ipod.

It connects via USB.

Yea I have the plug in for Winamp. I'm just asking because Wiki says the Firewire is for charging only, but I guess it charges through the USB port eh?

Itunes is pretty crappy, it converts everything to m4a for a start.

I wish my friends with Itunes did that, i hate them sending me m4a tracks!

Well the creative is undoubtedly easier to use with a computer, it's also great how because there's no drivers or anything, you can plug it into anybodies PC and 'acquire' their music.

I wish you could Jailbreak a Zune so it will work with iTunes.

I can't find any Ipod classics under 150-120GB on bestbuy nor amazon.

They don't exist... The smallest Classic is 120GB and the largest Nano is 16GB.

Not a lot to choose from then. I don't want to dish out $250 so easily.

I've had 2, on my third, they all still work and one is almost 8 years old now, and they all beat the respective iPod's for me.

you can get the winamp plugin that makes your winamp media library your sync your ipod, its so much cooler, thats what i did, i deleted itunes and got that plugin and now everytime i plug in my ipod, it shows up in the media library and you just drag/drop everything you want into. Its so much easier and cooler, and made me fall in love with ipods again.
