Never get an archaic apple piece of rubbish! I'm dumping my shuffle (gen4?). Can't even drop files on it, so ancient and non-international-standard meeting. I do not like itunes and do not want to destroy all my music into their bespoke librarys/folders - but with this product the only way to use it is through itunes, HENCE ALWAYS AVOID APPLE CHEAP RUBBISH.
I'm not too keen on iPods any more. They're nice little bits of kit and easy to use and all BUT - if your pc dies and you have to get a new one, it's then really difficult to put new music on your iPod without erasing all the old stuff and starting again. I've got an old nano (sadly not one of the ones they're replacing for free...) and I haven't been able to figure out how to put anything new on it since my old pc was replaced.
On the up-side, I've been running with this old nano for years now and it's held up fine despite being utterly soaked in sweat/water many a time...
Blimey runs-with-dogs, is that right?
I've only got a 1gb iPod Shuffle, so it's never really bothered me as I'm always changing the music on it anyway. But that must be a real pain if you've got about 8gb or more on an iPod!
Glad you found the Sansa clip reset - I was going to suggest that! I've had one sansa die completey, one that the volume control is stuck on (fine for in bed!). Despite this, I bought a 3rd as they are really good - nice sound (with upgraded headphones) very light and perfect for running and (relatively) dirt cheap especially if you look around, and go for the lower memory versions.
