Well, then I'm glad I made the choice I did. You're the second person I heard that from. I will say XPlay takes a bit of getting used to, but it's more to do with the program's design than the accessability of it, if that makes any sense. I *see* exactly what I'm *supposed* to see. It's just getting used to taking music files to the proper place that took me a few tries to get straight. I had whole folders of things I wanted to put on my IPod and I had to go into the folder to copy the songs, rather than just copy the entire folder. I'll definitely be purchasing this very soon. ===== Feel the power...

I have anapod, but it leaves much to be desired.

Seems to do what Anapod Explorer does, making your interface with your IPod work with Windows Explorer. I chose it over Anapod primarily because it gives you a 15-day trial, whereas Anapod didn't give any demo at all that I could find, and after my experience with the "accessable ITunes interface" failing as miserably as it did, my policy is "No demo, no purchase." I've had too many accessability issues to embrace any other policy. Now, I've only scratched the surface of the program, but I am able to manipulate music on my IPod shuffle ... and that's what I wanted in the first place! If you want to check the XPlay product out, you can find it at www.mediafour.com. Enjoy. ===== Feel the power... Wield the magic!... http://www.draconisentertainment.com Gaming at the speed of sound!
