My birthday was on Tuesday, and now I have an iPod Shuffle. Ironically, I never use the shuffle feature since I hate it unless I'm trying to get further into my playlist. I'm sometimes too damn lazy to skip through a 100+ songs.


People using the shuffle feature for real? That's CHA-AR-RAAAY-ZAY!

I usually in some form or another have shuffle on, even if it is just an album or artist that I'm listening to. Right now on my 60gig I don't have many playlists, just one of about 1500 songs. That's the list I go to when I just need some music I like but don't want to get too specific. Obviously with that many songs, it needs to be on shuffle.

I love gadgets and electronics and I am surprised that I haven't bought an Ipod myself yet...
Just not the time yet for me to switch up for an Ipod yet. I'm also stuck in the past too because I love my MD player and wouldn't trade it up for even an Ipod video.

I use the On The Go feature a lot, so my playlists are usually several hundred songs in size.

So, like, I agree with you. Shuffle's a must when lists start to get big.

I got a black 30GB video iPod two weeks ago... I was shopping around for a 20+ gig mp3 player to house all of my mp3s and have some space left, and although the iPod was not the cheapest option, I bought it because of its small dimensions, video capability and just bc I wanted to see what the fuss is about. The iPod is my third mp3 player ever (the first was a Thomson CD-mp3 player and the second a 512MB no-name flash memory player that stopped working a month ago), and I'm happy with it. I don't watch videos on it nearly as much as I thought I would, though, but I still think it's a nice option to have. I tried watching anime on it, and the subs are readable enough as long as you hold it like you would your cell phone. I can imagine my eyes would get tired after a while though.

What annoys me a little is the way the iPod arranges the songs -- by song name, artist, album etc... I would rather have kept my folder structure the same as it is on my PC bc I'm much more used to it. I just wonder if other HDD mp3 players do it like iPod or can you keep the folders the way they were. I'm getting used to it though and I'm quite impressed by the sound quality, especially compared to my previous player. The earbuds are no Logitech 2.1 setup that I have on my PC , but the sound is good and there's even a fairly decent amount of bass... definitely better than what I expected.

Wow people still use MD players? It was cool when it came out in the 1990s with track names and full digital write-rewrite capacity with ATRAC recording, but once they started going with weird stuff like Hi-MD, Net-MD, I lost confidence in the future of MDs.

However, I won't deny that I loved it back then as well. Which brand did you own? My portable one was a Sharp, the one in my car stereo was by Carrozzeria, and the home radio was made by Victor.

it might be too late now if you let it migrate your collection, but there is a simple option in the View -> Preferences -> Advanced -> "Keep iTunes Music Folder Organized"

uncheck it and it shouldn't do anything to your existing structure. i've never looked for a way to change newly import stuff though. That always goes to the iTunes standard i think.

I believe he was talking about how the iPod categorizes the music by Artist or Album. As for the iTunes option to organize music for me, I actually like it. I keep my music organized by Artist -> Album - > Song anyway, so letting iTunes deal with renaming folders and files after I alter the ID3 tag is fine by me.

Yeah, I was talking about the iPod itself, not iTunes. Ah well, I'm starting to get used to it anyway. Btw, I watched a full anime ep. (Mushishi 9) on the iPod for the first time on the way to work today, and it's pretty nice, although I had to pause and squint for the tl notes bc they were a little too small on the iPod screen. I have to play around more with Videora's encoding settings though, dark scenes weren't looking too good..

I imported a Dr. Dre CD, and it was horrible.

On this particular CD, most of the songs were collaborations with other artists, and iTunes created a brand new folder for each song, because it thought the artist was different for each track.

I almost always use on-the-go playlists, so sometimes finding a song using the iPod categories is a pain in the ass, because not all my songs have an id tag and the song name is weird, like starting with the track nr. or whatever. I should fix that but I'm too lazy

Sony R70, R909 and N909. They are pretty old now so I might consider a MP3 player...Also using Sony MDR-E888SP, how are the equalizer on Ipod with okay headphones?

Yeah, that stuff is horrible, but I think it fixes it when you rename the artist to the same name. Just put the other artitsts' name in the title instead.

Is anyone using a case for their video ipod? What is it and do you recommend it? What color is your ipod?
I'm thinking of buying one but not before I buy a case.

Or just select all the tracks, go into the Get Info screen, and mark them as a Compilation. That'll stick all the tracks in an Album named folder under "Compilations," instead of storing each track in a differently named artist folder. Easy.
