is it wrong to charge the battery before it dies, or when it is half way down the bar?

Just bought the 15GB iPod and after some "issues" I now can say that this thing is amazing. I am a first time iPod buyer/user so I was not familiar with all details related. By the way, if you do not need to hold 10000 songs (i.e. 30GB) then why spend the $100 extra. That was my reasoning. I have been collecting MP3s for several years now and have only 1500 songs to download to the iPod.

Some of you first time users should know that there are issues sometimes with adding Firewire boards (i.e. hardware conflicts) which is optimal for the iPod interface. After having a computer tech fix the hardware conflicts I was able to download MP3s to my iPod.

I bought the Transpod holder/charger/transmitter with this as well. Sound quality was a little disappointing. High pitched noise sometimes, very low gain (i.e. have to crank car stereo way up on certain tracks), just to name a few things. Also, please note that you cannot have a protective case on your iPod and put in the Transpod. It does not fit.

Nonetheless, the iPod is a must have for anyone who is obsessed with music!

a fricken nightmare! ive had the ipod for about 3 months now and encounterd nothing but problems, the ipod itself has been sent back twice for same issue and i'm still awaiting its return (its been about 2andhalf weeks) their are cheaper options out there and if the "little white number" isn't sorted out this time then ill be taking full advantage of them!!

My friend bought a 20GB 3rd Generation one, he loved it soooo much he sold me the 20GB 3rd Generation iPod for $50 and got himself a 40GB one. I love my iPod. I am a Windows XP Professional user and NEVER had a single problem with my iPod and Windows. Ive used MusicMatch which was ok but then i switched to iTunes. for $50 i couldnt go wrong. Its practicly brand new!

I am glad that some of you had a nice "out-of-box" experience and I wish I could have shared those comments. iPOD for Windows came with firmware 2.0.1 which does not support the BELKIN Media Reader. In order to update to version 2.2, I had to install iTunes for Windows, then remove it. After that, I discovered that MusicMatch can no longer sync with the 2.2 version of iPOD. I guess Apple tries to put them out of business although they were a nice platform initially to sell lots of iPODs through. I wish I had kept my old 20GB iPOD which worked way better. If you are interested in getting a brand new BELKIN Media Reader, check this eBay item: 3828257208.

I think that the 3G is the best iPod so far. The touch buttons may be a little annoying because you cant play it in you pocket or something, but still even the 4th generation ipod isnt that much better than this one. 4G has almost no difference. One thing i hate about the 4G is the stupid CLICK WHEEL. Its like a damn sticker how can you use that stupid thing. nevermind, i just think that this is the best ipod out right now.

How can I Transfer my CD's to my Ipod without putting them on the hard drive of my computer. I just bought it last night and am still figuring it out

i know im bumping an old thread, but this message is for people reading the reviews in late 04' all these posts were made in 03' and i know it can be confusing, there is now currently iTunes for windows and as far as i know that clicking noise they were talking about is no longer there. So im just clearing things up. Oh-yea, and the price for the 15gb is now $250.
