    Whatever you say IPOD is crap.

    Was thinkin about an RCA Lyra, Archos D-Mini, or a Creative ZEN (not sure which model of Zen tho)...

    If you know of any with a sweet line in record function please give me a tip...(yn) ...(and if so what quality does it record, i am a tech head i need to know the specs:D )

    I use a Creative ZEN and will probably buy a smaller one soon. No frigging file restrictions, Itunes or Sony crapware.

    Amen that bro, iTunes is a right pain in the arse! Why does it have to update every time i plug it in, what if i want to delete some files to make room for somethin else on the PC, i lose all the tunes on the iPod aswell, in the words of my generation, "That's shite!"

    Oh well, glad that the fucking thing has broken, i'll probably get a Creative ZEN now!!

    I have to agree. I wanna stay away from any sort of exclusive and or proprietary technologies like sony & apple.

    Any other mp3 players apart from the iPod with full in-car compatibility? (eg. being able to change tracks from the headunit)

    I don't think so. That market is pretty much sewed up.

    You can add controls to your steering wheel for some units.

    Got a 3rd generation iPod (40Gb), had it for about 4 years now, still working fine (y)

    Maybe they don't make 'em like they used to?

    I think its more the people who bought Minis and Nanos that have had, or soon will have problems. I had a mini and the battery's completely dead rendering it useless. Anyone with a working mini is bound to have this problem soon. Nanos are also supposed to have a short life but we'll have to wait and see for those I guess.

    I have the last Mini that came out [6 gb/extended battery]
    And Ive had no problems.
    I own a mac and they seem to mesh well.
    I never update the sware ,it still has the orig in it.
    I think thats half the prob..
    Dont update it(y)
