    Default ipod to other mp3 players

    Do I need to change the format of music files if I were to change from iPod to other MP3 players? If so, how?

    No need, unless the music files are not Mp3 format.
    What are you planning to change to.

    did u rip your music file in apple lossless format? I ripped most of my collection in apple lossless, later to discover that apple lossless not as portable as MP3. eg, my nokia can't play them.


    hence, still in a dilemma as to which format to choose. BTW, MP3 @ 320kps is acceptable..

    I am not sure what the iPod format is...what I do is just run the cd and let iTunes download it automatically into my pc. So what do I do when I get a new mp3 player - as in, do I need to copy and paste all my current songs from iPod folder into whichever new folder the new mp3 player/program creates?
    (Ermm...do I make much sense here?)

    Thinking of getting a Creative Tech. Not as cool looking, but heard it's more user friendly and much cheaper... Times are bad lah and also must support the 'Buy Singapore' movement.
    Any other recommendations?

    Eh, personally i use Creative before. IMHO, it juz suck. Failed on me aft like 7 or 8 mths. And it was quite a top of the range one back then. Nowdays i use Sony. So far so good. I'm at my 2nd sony arld. Coz i wanted better features. The first one up to now still working.... And the battery life is superb!

    Apparantly, i visited best denki some time back and was told by the mp3 sales person there that creative tends to spoilt more easily, sony is much more lasting. FYI, i jus go in see see, alrd got my Sony at that point of time, so nvr buy anything. The sales person juz had a casual chat with me....

    As for userfriendly, erm it is very user friendly. actually juz like a Sony ericsson phone the menu. Almost idiot proof one. This only applies to their video music players...
    Hope this helps...

    the itunes default format is ACC.
    to convert the files, you can try to download super converter from download.com
    the software function as drag and drop style.
