Monday Larry, I promise, lol!  Wish I had listened to you in the first place 
rather than spend all this time and headache on a free-B.  The Book Port is 
mine and I'm going to the booksshare.org right now.

Thanks:  Dana

  I know exactly what you mean, I'd love to be using a nice 40 or 60 gb hd 
based player, but I've tried several and with the exception of the Archos 
running the Rockbox firmware, none of them has been at all usable especially if 
you put it down for a couple of weeks and try to use it again.  That's what I 
love about Book Port-everything is accessible, and it plays a lot of files.  In 
fact, I'm surprised you're not a bookshare.org user.  That is one of the best 
things to hit this field in decades, and along with a Book Port, that library  
can be in your pocket (not all at once of course).

    Hi Hope:
    I'm there!  I am giving this useless thing one more day to shape up and get 
with the program, then I'm stomping it to bits.  In my career cast you will 
hear how my former employer and myself used a 10 ton dump truck to run over a 
non compatible Y2K computer.  How I wish we had recorded that in light of 
things we get to hear on the coolest pod cast.

      Hello, Dana.
      I also bought an Ipod, and discovered, upon my first day of owning it, 
that I hated, hated, and did I mention, hated the ipod!  I have found nothing 
at all that works with it, and the only reason I bought one to begin with is 
because I am subscribed to Audible.com, and I knew that the Ipod was a 
supported portable mp3 player.  Thinking that I might be able to figure 
something out, I took the chance and bought one, and returned it the very next 
day.  I'm sorry I have such a grim response, but I am in complete sympathy with 
your plight.    Perhaps the Bookport is the best solution after all.  I don't 
yet have one, but I think that will be my next try at this, rather than another 
mp3 player that is just as inaccessible.  At least the Bookport was designed 
with us in mind.  <smile>  You don't find that very often.  Good luck with your

        O K, I can't remember who turned me on to this V Pod but I am glad, I 
think.  If you might help me figure out why all these programs keep telling me 
why they cannot find my Ipod?  It is plugged in, turned on, defined in windows 
XP. as drive F and the green light is on, yet none of these programs, Anapod or 
V. Pod are unable to address it.  I know, I ended a sentence in a preposition, 
who cares!  I am about ready to stomp the Ipod!  I have spent all day on my 
quest to transfer files to it with absolutely no progress at all.  Larry, you 
might just win the Book Port issue but it better be better at detecting itself 
than these stupid Ipods.  Sorry for venting my complete frustration.
