How are you doing?
So I'm hoping this it the right forum for my question.
Up until 2 years ago when my shelf stereo broke, I ONLY wanted traditional stereos, but with it getting harder to find them & the fact that they take up so much space when moving, I think it's time I switch to something else.
So a few things:
1. I had an iPod before, but it got stolen back in 2006. I only used it for meditations, not for music.
Once when I went onto my computer (PC), the apple software did something to screw up the interface/menu of the iPod & it was never the same.
The customer service at Apple was rude & she didn't even try to help me.
If I decide to go the iPod route again, I don't want the same issues. If I like the way the songs are listed, I want to be able to keep it that way.
Does anyone have any idea what part of the software caused this issue?
Can I choose how the songs are listed? I'm the type that likes files & to store things into their appropriately titled folders.
2. I did buy an MP3 player a few years ago b/c it's obviously less expensive. I never really loved it & UPS lost my boxes when they were being shipped during my move, so that got lost too.
Why do you feel the iPod is better than just a traditional MP3 player?
My thinking is that there seems to be speakers that are small & meant for the iPods (not sure if that's what a docking station is). With regular MP3s, I'm not sure if there are small powerful speakers.
I don't need HUGE or VERY powerful speakers, but I do want a clean full bodied sound.
3. What is the difference between all these iPods? What should I be most concerned with?
4. I'm going to be buying used. I can't afford brand new.
When buying used, are there specific questions I should be asking the seller so I don't get ripped off?
Since I won't be able to buy based on where I am located, I intend to buy from anywhere in the US who has a good quality product & a good price.
I will have to just have them turn on Skype/video & I'll watch them turn it on so I can hear it playing.
Anything else you think I'm missing?
Thanks a ton
