So its become clear to me thus far that I just have way too many cds, and as I don't really have any better ideas for what I want, I'm stuck in making the decision between an Ipod or a Zune (prettymuch the two most popular brands). I'm kind of biased with Ipod, Itunes is kind of annoying with its process of working. Either way, this decision could save me the trouble of the every-day shuffling of jewel cases/re-arranging my car and sticking various things into a cardboard box to take elsewhere. So far I have about 16.6 gigs of music on my external HD, I anticipate it could be raised to over 20, given the amount of cds I've purchased that I simply haven't bothered to rip. Your opinion, guys?
