    actually i m transferring using the ipod connector

    anyway, here's a recap of what has happened so far

    1 day within 5 mins of starting the ipod hung - performed hard reset
    subsequent times hangs and reboots if i scroll through the menus too fast

    but it looks kewl either way

    Get an iRiver...

    I've had the H340 for more than a year already, and it has never hung on me.
    PLUS comes with 256K colour screen (plays videos and can view pics - yes, wayyyy before the ipod), has built in USB 1.1 host (can connect ur cam or a card reader straight to the player to d/l stuff - pity USB 1.1 speed) and loads of other features.

    the ipod video's free so that's the trade off i guess

    Give it to me for free. I'll make it sing and work like a charm.

    Ah yes, thats why i am looking at the U3 rather than nano. Although its a bit more ex, its size fits me cos i rather stuff it into my pocket. A nano is a little too big but cheaper thou.

    But i heard that only the 1gb version is avaliable in SG. 2gb not arrive yet.

    The mp4 format is driving me crazy, Apple is just forcing people to buy their videos off itunes music store (which by the way isn't even available for Singaporeans!). I gave up trying to convert my xvids to mp4 a long time ago.

    I got my iPod 30GB video, for almost a week now. No problem at all.
    I have 12GB of music, tried downloading audio podcasts, video podcasts, converted home movies (up to 9 minutes length) to iPod format... all without a single hitch.
    This machine is incredibly fast. It took me less than 20 minutes to upload all 2000+ songs the first time i synchronise.

    If your iPod is not working as it should, you should send it back to check.

    This is the most intuitive of gadget i have ever bought. I am loving my music again.
