    My iPod no longer plays many of the songs, or it will only play half of them. It also hesitates before playing songs and will not update when connected to my computer. I've had it since 2005 and I guess it's done.

    The Zune doesn't look to bad, does anyone have experience with them? I'm open to other suggestions too.
     
  2. the 30gb is the only one available. If you don't mind that.

    The whole sharing songs with friends looks pretty much useless.

    My iPod is 20 so that's fine, the wireless I don't care about.

    I went from a ipod vid to a zune. Honestly I like the zune a lot better - its built well and definitely sounds better than the ipod.

    I've been meaning to go check out a Zune, everything I've read seems pretty positive.
     
  9. go play with a zune to see if you like it.

    I'd suggest a Creative Zen or Toshiba Gigabeat. Both are >>>>> Zune, and if you don't like your iPod, they're your next-best bet.

    I just stick with iPods, although I have a Mac and it always seems that Mac users seldom have any problems with their iPod interface and their computer :dunno:

    I have 1 60 and 2 30's and all has been great so far :x:
