    I was at the Apple store today, and I seriously considered getting a 1GB Nano, but no one there could answer this question for me, so I figured I'd come here before buying.

    On my shuffle, under the iPod options, I can set it to convert the songs to 128kbps AAC files before loading them on the shuffle in order to cram more in. Is there a way to do this on the fly with the Nano? I couldn't find any such option in iTunes on the store Macs with Nanos hooked up.

    Thanks in advance.

    Nope. This feature is currently only available for iPod shuffle users.

    Damn. What about Autofill? I forgot to look for that, but can that be used on a Nano, too?

    Nope. Sorry. Again a shuffle-only feature, for now. It would be nice to see these features available for the rest of the iPod line, wouldn't it? :)

    Damn again! Yeah, I really like the compression feature, since I use my iPod mainly for running and biking so I don't need the highest quality then.
