    creative is good alright, I have small one and its great, I like the fact that it just plugs into the laptop via USB and its drag and drop all the way without the need for software.

      I've been experimenting with MP3 players, including Ipod for some time now, and I would put Creative ahead of everyone else at the moment. Creative actually own the copyright to the Ipod navigation technology, and so were around long before Ipod.


      Depending on what your looking for, here is my advice:


      Creative Zen v 2gb approx €150 ( very small and sleek than previous) Creatrive Zen M 30GB approx €240 ( 120hours of movies, 15000 songs, with nice slim design and excellent quality)


      Itunes now have to make their system available in a format that supports all MP3 formats, so I would go for creative. All the accessories for Creative are far cheaper than Ipod stuff)


      Thats my opionion for whats its worth.

          Have a 20 gig zen a couple of years now and it's the biz, never a spot of bother, and it's compatible with everything, unlike the ipod which is only compatible with i-products.

            Ive gotan oldsony 20GB. The battery life is great, something like 40 hours. Ive heard the new one isnt as good though. I listen to mine all the time and i only charge it about once a week.


            if i was buying one tomorrow though it would be creative. The drag and drop feature puts it head and shoulders above the rest.

                  I had an iRiver H300 for a few years, had an interface similar to windows,no feckin super sensitive touch-wheels, conected to any pc and used drag&amp;drop,simple to use. Not sure if they make that exact model anymore, but the latest ones are just as good.


                  Wasn't aware the creative zen useddrag&amp;drop? My mate has one and has to import everything into a creative software package and convert it, much the same as an ipod.


                  What happened your iPod anyway? You said its your 'latest' one, implying you've had hassle before? I just bought one myself and am getting used to it, no problems yet....

                      How long do you have it? Is it still in warrenty? If so contact Apple and send it off for repair. They've replaced any ipods i've sent off that stopped working on me no questions asked...

                          Nope they're fantastic - it's me that's the problem. I've dropped one or two onto concrete surfaces, exposed one to under the minimum temperatue and the screen cracked (new video iPod). Really important you read the care instructions. Phones and I don't get on well either as they get bounced around the road, dropped down stairs, into water... Oh the list goes on.. I've got a special cover for my iPod now and when I drop it not a dent or scratch...

                              I just love the old iPod and although I've used every other MP3 player I can get my hands on I always go back to the trusty iPod...
