You can buy an iPod on ebay with the larger hard drive already installed for a decent price, and then you can still sell your existing one.
How about an iPod touch or iPhone + iTunes Match?
so capacity has been reached with my 160gb ipod...i need something bigger. i don't like having to pick and choose artists every time i sync. not to mention when i do hook it up to my computer to sync, every time i get a disk error and am asked to run check disk. or the ipod will freeze and i'll have to hard reset it 2 or 3 times to get it to work. and then when it does work, some songs will show up with wrong artist/title/album info and wrong album art. basically it's a piece of trash. i've had problems with my ipod since the first day i bought it and just put up with it because it could hold my entire library.
i'm looking for a new mp3/media player that has more capacity than the 160gb ipod. i found an archos 'tablet' that seems to fit the bill, but after reading reviews of it i'm not so sure. i just need something i can just dump all my music on (currently 158.5gb, and always growing) and not have to worry about running out of room anytime soon. the archos i found has a 500gb capacity. i saw that you can get an ipod harddrive that's ~220gb, but that is about $200 and would require me disassembling my ipod...which i'm sure i could do, but would rather not.
so what say you e&g folks? would this archos thing work sufficiently? anyone have one/used one? and FLAC playback would be an added bonus to whatever i end up getting
i'll look into ebay. that sounds like the best plan.
i don't use itunes and i don't like the whole streaming/cloud thing. for one, quality sounds like butt, two, i have to be connected to 'the net' somehow. i just want to be able to dump all my stuff onto a single device
but i did not realize that about the quality with cloud streaming now. it had sounded pretty bad before and never really tried again.
Spotify is amazing, and has recently started streaming at 320 Kbps. I never thought I would say it but next phone will be the lowest storage capacity available.
With the exception of some white label records, and live performances spotify has hAd almost everything I asked for, and the quality with some good headphones is almost equivalent to lossless.
The only problem is that it is pretty easy to chew through a data plan with it. I have unlimited so I don't really worry.
If you really want all your music, either get a 2nd iPod and carry both at the same time, put all your stuff in the cloud, start listening to Pandora.
oh, and i only have 76 days of music
edit: i think i'm gonna go for this: http://www.amazon.com/Archos-501598-...pr_product_top

^ ya, reading the reviews it sounds like an awful device. (and just look at it, i think it's running a skinned android 2.1/2.2?)but i just need it to play music..maybe i'll load a few movies/tv shows on it, but pretty much just an mp3 player.
in other news, i happened to win an ipod touch 4g in a raffle a girl i work with was doing. so i've been playing with that the past few days. already jailbroke it, but i'm not exactly sure what to do after that. for me, it's more of a mini tablet, than an mp3 player. for $15 i ain't mad
