if anyone has any advice, that would be awesome.
or if you can answer just one question, also appreciated ...
if I already have a bunch of music in wma format (downloaded from cd's, purchased on napster and msn music), am I able to easily change those to a format I can put on an Ipod and, if so, how? or do i just lose all that music?
i would appreciate answers to the rest as well, but this one I am really interested to know.
I am trying to decide on an MP3 player as it seems many people are. Here are my concerns. Any advice is appreciated.
I want to definitely stay under 300 and closer to 200 if at all possible, given that all the accessories will add up in a hurry.
I want to be able to run with it. Is this a HUGE problem with the regular Ipod? (vs. the nano (and other flash players) which i know is supposed to be better for the gym)
I have a decent size music collection downloaded from napster and msn music. If I get an IPOD, do I just give all of this up? It can't go on an IPOD in wma format, correct?
I suppose I would also have to re-rip all of my cd's if I purchased an ipod so that they were in their format? true?
Are there enough accessories with the other brands outside of IPOD to choose from? like cases, speakers, armbands, and whatever else I might need.
It seems like most of the accessories out there are made for ipods!!
I do feel like Ipod is easy to use. Are the rest of them this easy?
Other random thoughts i've had while trying to make a freakin decision !! I like the players on the smaller side but feel like nano is almost too small. I like the thought of watching video on the Ipod but wonder how much I would actually do it. I don't really care about color - something basic, black, white is good. I don't really care too much about clock/radio/games/recorder or any of the rest of that stuff. Photos would be nice, but again, not a necessity as I am not sure how much i would actually use that feature.
I appreciate any and all advice as I am obviously one confused chic who needs some help and is sick of thinking about this stuff !! Thanks in advance.
