    Synch Options

    Just one more quick question in case I ever get my new PowerBook:( Is there a way to synchronise files that allows them all to be stored on the iPod rather than having to keep the hard disk full of mp3 files. I would be happy just to playback with the iPod connected if necessary. Cheers, Steve

    Musicmatch resampling query

    ID3 tag editers

    I've just been looking around for a good, freeware tag editer that will allow me to get my mp3 files in some sort of order while my iPod is back with Apple for a fault investigation under warranty:( The only one I've looked at so far is ID3-TagIT but I don't know if that handles Composer tags...

    Configuration info requested

    I've posted elsewhere about some problems I am having with noises (chirps and cheeps etc) during playback. I'm still trying to trace the problem and it would be useful to make my configuration as close to 'standard' as possible. If another EAC + LAME + XPlay user is reading this and doesn't...

    Sennheiser HD25 Headphones

    I posted on the old forums asking for some advice on whether the above phones were a good choice for use with an iPod. Just to complete the thread I took the chance to try them for a couple of days and the results were pretty mixed. While the sound was pretty good (but probably not burned in...
