    i really don't understand why some people question large storage capacities

    it's fine if you don't get bored with whatever amount of space you have

    some of us just want it all on one device at one time

    it's really not even worth debating

    I've got 90 gigs, I would be horrified if I lost it

    mainly because of the time it took to collect

    I lost 13 of my 26 gigs when my computer went blooey

    Pissed me off something fierce because it meant I had to get it all again

    Also half of my iPod is videos. I like carrying a handful of movies and all of X-Files with me.

    The only conceivable problem I have with large storage capacity mp3 players is just scrolling through shit

    I mean when you've got 20,000+ songs it may take a while to get through everything

    does anyone know of a decent program that automatically tags files? I really don't want to have to do everything by hand like I did before

    Wait do you look at like the listing of songs or how do you do it

    Because if I scrolled through my entire ipod by song I'd be there for days (except for the handy "jump to a letter" feature)

    But I usually just go artist - album - song I want to hear

    I'll swear by MusicBrainz, especially with the plugin that pulls down album art from Amazon.

    Here's the naming scheme I use in MusicBrainz, for both single and various artists
    Single
    $if2(%albumartist%,%artist%) - $left(%date%,4) - %album%/$num(%tracknumber%,2) - $if2(%albumartist%,%artist%) - %title%


    Multiple
    $if2(%albumartist%,%artist%)/%album%/$num(%tracknumber%,2) %artist% - %title%

    It's nice because after adding the option to move the mp3s from whatever folder they're in it will create a folder and name scheme like this

    X:\MyMusic\The Crystal Method - 2009 - Divided By Night\03 - The Crystal Method - Drown in the Now (feat. Matisyahu).mp3

    with a bit of album art auto-named folder.jpg

    I'm just anal about all that being correct

    That's what that string does, created a folder with the Artist - Year - Album Title and in it organizes and renames the songs by Track Number - Artist - Song Title and downloads the album art to the same folder, provided you have the plugin.

    Yeah but I don't organize that way

    I mean those are the things I need to have filled out or I get nutty

    My folders are Artist -> Album -> Song

    Year is just used in iTunes proper, my library is organized alphabetically by artist and then each artist's albums are organized by year

    like really how long do you have to stay away from your computer in order for 16 GB of music to become boring?

    Iskander what you are forgetting is that there are people in the world who, while out and about have a hankering for a song they haven't heard in years and it's not on their iPod it will ruin their day completely.

    Because I mean nobody listens to the majority of their music on a regular basis nope

    Or uses the space on an iPod for anything but music especially now that two models support video

    forget regular old video support

    the ZuneHD supports HD out playback up to 720p.

    720p videos take up a good deal of space.
