    OK, well I've decided to trade my nano listed in my sig for a Powermac G3 B&W, just because they're so sexy. It's the only iPod I have and I can't live without my music. Darn, impulse buying habits and the sexiness of the B&W. So, now I just want something to listen to my music on until I can afford to get another iPod. Problem is this: I would like it to work on my iBook and if at all possible have it sync with iTunes. Biggest problem: I'd like to stay right around $50 or less. I have tons of SD cards laying around so storage doesn't matter as long as it has a card slot. My current library is about 1.8gb. I saw the article posted on Apple regarding iTunes compatability, but I thought you guys might know of some more.

    What about a refurb shuffle? They're only $49!

    Yea, I was thinking that also, I guess I would only sync part of my library than. I kind of wanted some kind of screen, but that might be asking too much, considering :rolleyes: .

    To work with iTunes, I think an iPod of some kind is your best option. To keep it under $50, a shuffle refurb might be your ONLY option....

    Do the new Zen Stones work with iTunes (my instinct says no)?

    What about if for the time being I don't worry about iTunes compatibility. I can still use iTunes to listen while on my iBook. Will their be more options if I want an mp3 player that will show up as a USB mass storage device on my iBook so I can just drag and drop my music files in? Basically, the same way I plug in my USB flash drive and it comes up on the desktop, isn't there an mp3 player than can do that lol? Than I can just drap and drop the mp3 files to the drive, no?
