No probs mate,

like Zapper, i also have a MD player and i use that most of the time. I have an MP3 player that i got last year, it cost a packet and is only 256Mb. I only use it as a flash drive for data.

I have never really been turned on by iPod or HDD based MP3 players. 20-40Gb sounds great but do you really need 20,000 songs when you sitting on a train for a 30 min journey?

I would rather shell out the same money for a 2 or 4 gig flash drive. Its solid state (no moving parts) and doesnt damage the internal hard drive if it gets dropped because it uses flash memory a bit like the ram in your computer (only slightly different read/write technology). Hard drives, no matter how much protrction you give them, only have a realistic life span or 3 to 4 years due to wear and tear of the mechanical disks and seek heads. I am waiting for a better technology to come along and i think flash is the future when it comes down in price.

I know what you mean. I do worry about taking a spill on the biek and damaging the iPod. I want the 20 GB so I can put all of my cd's on it and then box up the cd's. I thought about getting a flash based MP3 player or one that has SD expansion. But like you said they are fairly expensive and don't hold a lot. ANy recommendations for a flash based MP3 player?

Yeah it would be costly. I just keep getting sucked in by the coolness factor. I guess I am a lemming! I honestly never thought about MD players. How much are they and how much are the disks?

Re: Favourite music / musician

I'll listen to most things. Alternative rock, electronica, the blues. Recently I have been tilting towards the Smashing Pumpkins, Pixies and Toadies. Still can't deny the brilliance that is FischerSpooner.

I've got a Sony...player/recorders range in price from $110.00 to $600.00 usd..I paid $149.00 for mine a few years ago. You can get an 8pak for about $6.50 under a dollar each. Each disk can hold anywhere from 2 to 5 cd's..depending on recording mode etc...The thing I like is if I drop it while riding, I haven't lost anything...drop that Ipod and it gets run over you have lost not only the player but the associated memory etc...Just something to think about....

Good points. Maybe I will have to look into a MD player. So how exactly does it work? DO you attach the MD player to the computer and transfer MP3's directly to it?

Just saw Greg Allman in concert a couple weeks ago.
He had a really great guitarist with him by the name of Robben Ford. Man could he make that Les Paul sing!

Yes...you rip songs just like mp3's...put cd in computer, attach usb cable from md player to usb port and go for it. You can get a cable to record directly from your portable cd player but the quality isn't as good....On my desk at work, I have too small plastic 4" X 3" cubes that contain 12 discs each that provide me with about 100 hours of music... Not as small as mp3, but not as large as a cd player...A viable alternative to spending those duckies on the IPOD...

Cool. I will check it out. What model of MD player do you have? Hey is U2 coming to your neck of the woods? The closest they are coming to me is Denver.
