Given that I'm about to go on a 20-day trip in Ireland, in addition to my more regular iPod uses, I'm planning to upgrade from my current 15gb 3g to either a 30gb or 60gb Video iPod. Therein lies the question: a 30 gig or a 60 gig. I'm going to be using it for music, photos off my Rebel XT, and several movies. I have 3 gb of music, and expect to take an average of 150 photos per day, which at between 2 and 3 mb per picture equates to around 9 gb including some extra padding room. That's a total of 12 gb. So the rest would be made up of DVDs ripped onto it. How big is the average movie when put on an iPod? That seems to be the biggest factor for getting a 30 or 60. thanks!
