No iPod for me.  I want to choose the format of my music collection and not have Apple choose for me.  Creative Zen Nano cost me $59 total and I don't have convert MP3 to M4P or vise versa or keep my music collection on one PC by going the Apple route.  Price and convenience took me in another direction.   

Why would you have to convert mp3's to something else to listen to them on an iPod?

Yeah both iPod's and iTunes handle mp3's just fine.  I have a bunch of stuff I ripped from my CD's using LAME alt-preset extreme and it works fine.  Now neither iPod's or iTunes handle WMA but mp3's are ok.

I ordered my replacement from here and I got e-mail telling me they shipped it within an hour of my ordering.  I got it 3 days later (using the cheapest shipping method).  Everything I needed was in the package.  I can easily recommend them to get the new battery from.

thanks for the link.  Hopefully I won't need it for some time (just bought mine in February) but it'll be good to have.

I have an Ipod Mini my neighbor gave me.  I'm rather impressed with it even if I don't use it very much.  I usually leave it plugged into my 360.

My apologies.  I assigned what I see as the weakness of iTunes to the iPod and I'm wrong.  My erroneous assumption was based on an unfortunate purchase of a bunch of singles at iTunes some time ago where I learned too late the difficulty in converting m4p into mp3.  Regarless, both iTunes and iPod have been wildly successful.

No problem.  It makes sense that you couldn't convert it as stuff purchased from the iTunes music store is encrypted and won't be able to be converted to any format.

I've got the 5G 30Gig model and I absolutely love having it. I have an FM transmitter so I can listen to it in the car.
