    One of my mates has over that. He's got about 12,000 lps, about 15,000 cds (and 1,000s of 7"s and 12"s) with about 15% duplication across the two formats.

    He's been buying records for 36 years and work for a large record chain as the imports manager for about 10 years. He get about 30-40 promos a week, the lucky sod.

    You could fit twenty HD movies on the 160GB model and have loads of space free.

    Hopefully within the next few years we'll be able to stream music, HD video and photos off our "1TB iPod's" straight to our TV wirelessly.

    I'm still amazed at how people can have over 1000 songs

    I have about 2000 in my collection of legal material. I got quite a bit of it in the haydays of MP3.com when indie artists were giving away a lot of free samples and remixes to promote their full albums.

    I just saw this on Engadget. Amazing. It reminds me of when I first read about perpendicular recording on HDs.

    Buy a 10-song album once a week for 100 weeks. That's about 2 years. That gives you 1,000 songs. Now imagine you compiled CDs and/or iTunes purchases for a couple of decades. EASY to get past 1,000 songs. My count is just more than 3,500.

    However, I think the point some people miss is VIDEO. Nobody uses a 180GB iPod to store just songs. They sync video podcasts, movies, TV shows, and photos on there and then can output them to a TV using a $50 cable (or you can watch them).

    9,855 40 gb
    its really easy to get a large library
    if you share your music with any of your friends a 16 gb library can turn into a 40 gb (like mine) just in a day or to of transferring and other stuff

    and i have yet to get one of my friends collection as he is in iraq right now, he has a massive amount of cd's, he said i could try and burn all of them but he has them on a hdd somewhere...

    i haven't tried to do it because of fear of breaking my disc drive with over 2,000 cd's

    I've got 11,580 (all legally obtained) plus I have several thousand tracks on vinyl that's not on iTunes.

    I'm more amazed by people who have less than 1,000 to be honest.

    There are around 470 CDs across the room as I type this, and even more in another part of the house, and I only have 490 songs on my iPod. I'm guessing a lot of people put entire CDs on their iPod when they like one or two songs from it, or put an artists new album on if they have liked their previous ones.

    I'm chopping down my iTunes library. I'm down to 35GB and I think I can take away one or two more GBs. This will be great once the iPod touch/iPhone becomes more powerful and a lot of space will be needed for full blown games and other apps.

    We neither know how expensive these will be nor how reliable.

    It may be a major breakthrough but it may also be a complete failure.
