    That actually does seem pretty good, but I think the original poster already has the IPod.

    Tehehehe I have like 5 DVD's on my Ipod.

    But it would take to long on how to do it though.

    Easy CD extractor. Don't even pay for it. Its good for a month or so, then just delete it and download it again. It'll convert your music files easily into MP3s.

    Limewire is not legal. Download enough and they will come after you. I have gotten a few songs for free, but not many.

    I have an ipod. I highly recommend it. Get the biggest and best model you can afford. Theres a ton of support, accesories and stuff for it. Ipod can play the music you get from limewire and your CDs. Some MP3 players out there will have trouble with stuff that isen't copyrighted (I believe Sony has that issue).

The Sansa may be great, but also because I only want to play music on my IPod, I don't really care about having the recorder and all that. The Sansa does, however, look like it is a great product, and as much as I love Apple if I was to get one of the smaller IPods I may go with that, but more than likely I would stick with Apple. I also don't listen to the radio... ever because I despise the radio. So you are correct in that being a great product, but some of the special features it has, that the IPod doesn't, wouldn't affect me because I wouldn't use them.

    Imo the videos are the way to go because the extra money is most definitely worth it.

    As to the topic, I guess I don't see what the iPod (Nano, in this case) has over the Sansa player.

    Code:
    [U]Feature         	Sansa	iPod Nano[/U]
    Screen Size	[B]1.8"[/B]	1.5"
    FM Tuner  	[B]Yes[/B]	No
    (& recorder)		
    Voice Recorder	[B]Yes[/B]	No
    Expandability	[B]MicroSD[/B]	None
    Plays videos	[B]Yes[/B]	No
    Replace battery	[B]User[/B]	Ship it to Apple
    Games/Calendar	No	[B]Yes[/B]
    Sound quality	Excellent	Excellent
    Price - 8GB	[B]$190[/B] 	$230 
    Price - 2GB	[B]$114[/B] 	$148


    I can't comment on the earphones because I always buy my own rather than use those included. I couldn't easily find images the same size but here's how they look (the Sansa's wheel has a cool blue glow when you use it):




    I know some people are fans of the iPod and won't consider anything else. But if you've got an open mind, the Sansa offers an excellent feature set and is a high quality product, IMHO. I know I'm pleased as punch with mine.

    I really like my Sansa player. It's can play MP3s / WMAs, JPEGs, Video, FM Radio (you can even record it for later playback), and a voice recorder. But I mostly use mine for the MP3s. It is also expandable with MicroSD cards (up to 2GB per card, I believe). It's small, compact and sleek. It's has great battery life and a nice screen. They have several models with price dependent on the built-in memory:

    Sansa e280 8 GB MP3 Player
    Sansa e250 2 GB MP3 Player

    And a couple models in between, but all with the same features except for the memory. I find it very easy to use because you can easily transfer from Window Media Player. IPod has the name but they're not the the only player in the game. Compare the specs and features on comparable IPod Nanos and note the price difference, too.

    Just my :2cents:...

    But the first thing is how easy is it to use one of them? When it comes to technology, and high-tech gadgets... I SUCK. I can't figure them out.

    Second, I don't really want to pay .99 for 1 song other wise I would have to file for bankruptcy. I have over 3,000 bucks worth of CDs (some don't even work anymore ) So I was looking for a site where I can pay monthly or yearly. I came across lime wire on google. I think it is like 40 bucks for a life time membership. Sound good, but are they legit, and most of all is it legal. I do not want to be one of those people who basically steal. Because I would not like it if someone stole my music, and well most of all I do not want to go to prison and become someone’s queen

    any help?

    ITunes makes it extremely simple to put songs onto your IPod, and I am assuming you have a PC, so use Limewire, but make sure you back up your hard drive because Limewire takes up some space and has a tendency to slow down your computer if you don't.

    Limewire is a free program that CAN be legal, but they don't stop you from downloading illegaly, at all really. Limewire Pro is faster and has better searches, but it costs money and is eh. You used to be able to download it free....using limewire , but I think they fixed that.

    I just use iTunes. Its not that bad, and very easy.

    LOL I haven't played chess for eons.

    We were anti virus exempt for a little while and BAM. 132 viruses were detected and everyone I spoke too, said downloading music or videos are the biggest culprits. Just giving you a warning here to make sure you protect yourself.

    I don't have or use this stuff. I am just about as technology challenged as you are.

    One thing I want to warn you about downloading music. BE SURE YOU HAVE ANTIVIRUS software because that is a big problem.
