How Much Music You Got? - June 30, 2010, 01:24 AM

I'm looking at a new MP3 Player and I'm trying to figure out if I want an ipod of I need something else. How much music do you have and what do you all use? I think I'm going to go with an old Gen3 ipod with a 60gb hd

It really depends on your compression format which also dictates what kind of headphones will actually sound better with you device. Personally I have a 16gb nano (I went nano for the size mainly sports, and the reason for the I pod for was the interface)

I have a external hard drive for backup and use only lossless compression formats, and every time I add a new album I set up the media manager to add it to my I pod, when I listen to it I rate it and the next time I plug it in to charge on my computer it removes poorly rated songs and refills it with new songs and rotates through ones I have rated highly.

So depending on your application you may not need a large device, but 60gb is a fair amount of storage to keep you entertained. FYI apple gives good discounts on referbs sometimes if you call them and Woot.com has I pods every so often for really killer deals.

I had a 30gig ipod and filled it up, with tons of music not on the ipod. my comp crashed and i lost everything. I now just load what music i feel like listening to on my phone and listen to it there.

I forget how much music I have on my computer, some 2000 songs I think. But I have a cheap mp3 player with only 2GB of space. I never fill the thing up. I never really got the point of having every song you own in ur pocket. Just my .02

Around 30 gb I think. Put it on shuffle and go, everythings backedup from my 80gb ipod (soon to be Zune!) on 1tb external janks..... all of Lil waynes music alone is like 7gbs. I hate him but the ladies like him so I keep it around. Alotta long azz trance, hardcore and DnB mixes, alotta punk and rap.

Look at how much music you have now.. and how much you add on a yearly basis and do the math. When MP3's first became popular I downloaded every CD I could find. Problem is I have about 2500 albums.. and realistically only listen to less than 50.

I think a 60gig iPod is a great place to start. You can always sell and upgrade later.. Apple products hold their value pretty well so you wouldnt lose much if you decided to upgrade a year or 2 from now.

Yup, same albums get played out on mine, new albums get played from my fav artists when they release something new. Too much music, but then again when the mole people apocalypse occurs we will be stocked with tunes.

@ the OP - do you ever watch videos? Small screen sucks but helps pass the time on Metro. Average xvid movie is about 700mb a piece and a tv show episode is around 50mb.

Dude I downloaded so much.. I had a few albums 3 or 4 times. In different kbs quality levels and a few in FLAC. Had some in mp4 format and more than a few in AAC that I've purchased off iTunes.

Itunes does something pretty cool for people like 'us' with way too music and not enough time to listen to it all. It keeps track of how many times you play certain songs.. Considering I now have several iWhatever devices.. the biggest of which being my new 32gb iPhone. I can fit most of my favourite music on there, but when I sync the other devices.. iTunes keeps track of everytime you play a song (or album) and installs the music you listen to most.

Its always interesting when I pull out my 2gig 6year old iPod Nano and watch it update the songs. Real easy way to see that I pretty much listen to the same stuff over and over.

You make a good point about video. I've just started putting video on my phone and it is a great way to pass time commuting. I have all the Family Guy Episodes from season 1-8 and simply laugh my azz off to work and back. If video is your thing.. you may want to consider an media player that has a bigger screen (3-4" screen). That way you can listen to music OR watch movies/video.
