Hi Dan, Thanks for the insight on these players. From what I can see, and what I read, the DELL seems to be a very good choice. As for the size of its capacity...

the I Then you definetly want to look at a Dell Digital Jukebox. dhs&~ck=mn not My nephew bought an iPod...I wasn't impressed. The DDJ can be had for as little as $149...
I just got an Ipod for Christmas. Looks cool. It really does look cool. Is far from cool in actual operation, or non-operation as the case goes. Is actually kind of neanderthal in the way the user must conform to the device rules of operation. Doesn't work without agony of having to learn non-intuitive, idiosyncratic programming rules: this is the MSDOS of portable music players. This epmperor is buck nekkid. Has the least intuitive software I have ever seen: there is no clear way to simply load a single tune without having to watch hours of instructional videos, wade through or create useless playlists that conform to what Apple wants but not the end-user. Most solid state MP3 players are much easier to use. Ipod does not appear in Explorer as a drive: this is simple perversity on the part of Apple programmers who cannot admit Microsoft has a better idea called drag and drop. Diehard Appleholics will not admit this either but simply dragging music files to where you want them to be is a lot easier than the Apple playlist misconception. Menu is rigid, non-heirarchical and inviolable. Brain surgery is easy to do when you know the rules (I do!): learning to use an Ipod should not be as time-consuming. I think I will be giving this thing away: I do not want to devote hours to learning how to use it. The device is supposed to entertain me, not force me to spend hours learning to use it.
