I was curious as to what everyone does once there music collection exceeds the capacity of there iPod or phone?

I am currently in the process of listening to the 500 greatest albums of all times according to Rolling Stones magazine. Adding those albums in addition to what I already own brings my library to about 150gb of music which is just over what my iPod can hold.

Incredible! You've put a few Apple execs' kids through college, that's for sure

I just sync a subset of selected artists onto my iPhone which I normally use for listening, but my iPod classic lives in the console of my car with everything on it if I happen to want something I have omitted to put on my iPhone.

The issue I run into is that I have more music than my iPod classic can store.

I have a smart playlist that grabs the songs I listen to most often that are rated 5 stars. That automatically puts about 1600 songs on my 60 Gb iPod touch out of 64000+ tunes from my library. Then there are the standard playlists that feature an artist (Dread Zeppelin, Mike Oldfield, etc.) and audiobooks which bring the total to 3,456 tracks on the iPod.

Ever see those enormous private libraries the wealthy assemble? The kind that require a rolling ladder to reach the top shelves?

Collectors get the books because they want to own what they enjoy reading. But they may not live long enough to read all the books more than once.

That's what I have in virtual space. Enough books, music, and video that I'll have shuffled off the mortal coil before I experience it all twice.

Those enormous private libraries, one can read even after going thru the zombie apocalypse - no need for electricity...

But for digital libraries, once you're out of batteries, they're inaccessible...
