:censor: i remember now why my no name mp3 player has been sitting in a drawer since my mexico vacation almost a year ago!!! not only does the software freeze every three songs when you try to load stuff on (ultimately crashing my computer complete with windows blue screen of death!!), but once it's all FINALLY loaded (ie i get sick of rebooting) half the songs don't play!!! THIS is why i want an IPOD so badly...i remember now. hubby has been talking me out of one for almost six months because i don't use the mp3 player i have...THIS IS WHY!!! once again, you get what you pay for....i'm not listening to hubby anymore!!! cheaper is NOT the same!!! thanks for letting me vent ladies. i'm very frustrated and there's no one here to talk to.
