as you can guess, I used to live on my ipod. All difference now with my phone does everything in one. Still I love being able to listen to music on the go.

I was gonna say don't get a nano  - I have one but the touch screen is a little small and fiddly for me... but works like a dream.

Downloading music, I hate itunes - I much prefer play.com - as I find it cheaper and easier. But iTunes is click and go.

Oh and the audio quality is nicely improved by using proper headphones and not the s**t that apple give by default.

same price as all music, though I recall the Beatles albums are more expensive on itunes than CD. I prefer CDs and rip them and stick them on the device.

So, I've found the iPod in a seemingly unopened box.  It's a 30GB 7500 songs variety if that is meaningful.  The box contains the iPod, a USB cable and a pair of naff earphones but no CD.  Is there supposed to be one?   :dunno:  It says I must attach it to my computer which I did several hours ago and it displays the message "Do not disconnect".  What happens next?   :D

I'm surprised there isn't a disk in that type. I'm guessing its the one that isn't touch screen? Windows media player should have connected to it but I guess first use probably does mean using itunes
