    I'm waiting for my iPod nano to arrive (I'm so excited!) and have two questions about it.

    1) The shuffle has an option to encode your music on transfer so I can keep the music on my iPod and my computer at different bit rates. Is this option accessible with the iPod nano too?

    2) Since the iPod nano can't show pictures on T.V., I don't see any point in my pictures being very high resolution on the iPod for strictly iPod viewing. Upon transfer, are the photos optimized to a much smaller size, or are the photos in their huge resolutions still being transferred?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. No.

    2. It gets optimized by default. And you have the option of storing the full size JPEGs in Disk Mode.

    Ok, the music thing sucks, but that's great news for the photos. Do you, or anyone, happen to know a standard ratio for the photos stored? I'm curious because I'm trying to see how many photos and songs I can put on my iPod before it arrives.

    a lot of photos. they are only thumbnails, so you could literally put thousands on there. I have approx 1200 photos (only thumbnail versions) and about 3.4 GB of music as well. That pretty much filled up all the space on my 4gb nano, but the majority of it is the music.

    not on mine, but that could just be the format of the pictures, or my settings in iPhoto.

    anyone else?

    Why?!!?!?

    Why isn't #1 there!?! Why, why, why.

    This is just stupid. I encode in Lossless and it is a pain in the ass that only the Shuffle has the option to set the type and bit rate of the music on it!?
