I have a 3rd generation iPod (the one with 4 buttons on top of the wheel, no click wheel, black/white screen)... it's pretty damn old and I'm looking to replace it with a new MP3 player, but I don't want another iPod. The only thing stopping me right now is the fact that you can't play iTunes-purchased music on non-iPod MP3 players. Unfortunately I never foresaw this problem, and so I have quite a bit of music bought from iTunes. I did a little bit of researching and it seems one way to circumvent this is to burn each album on a CD and rip them back into MP3 format. Are there any other options? And before anyone says it, I'm set on buying a non-iPod MP3 player so buying an iPod is not an option. On a side note, does anyone else here have a non-iPod MP3 player they're happy with? I have a couple ones in mind but I'd like to know what other Mac users use, and how compatible they are with iTunes (and OSX in general).
