I was wondering if you all would weigh in with your experience on a question of mine. I'm trying to decide what to do when the next iPod revision comes out...if there is indeed going to be a revision...a revision that includes a 40 gig drive. Anyway... I wanted to use the iPod to hold all of my music...about 22 gigs total. I also wanted to use the spare room to back up all of my stuff and the stuff on my wifes computer which comes to about 10 gigs. Is this a good idea? I've heard of cases where the iPod locked up and the disk had to be erased...that's unacceptable in this case. My only other option is to not get an iPod and get a 40 gig Firelite drive from Smartdisk. I'm concerned about backing up my data, but I don't want to risk losing it all because the iPod (apparently) has a faulty OS. Speaking of which, those of you who have installed the software update...do you still experience lock-ups on a regular basis? And has anyone bought a recent 20 gig model and had their headphone jack fall apart? This happened to me about a year ago with a 10 gig model. I returned it and decided to wait for a less fragile revision. Any feedback would be really helpful. Thanks!
