My wife wants to get me an Ipod for Christmas (what a sweetie!), but I was wondering: how hard is it to rip DVDs I already own and put them on it? I don't care if it's technically illegal; I bought the DVDs, and, just like CDs to mp3's, I want to rip them. So how hard is it?
How much disk space are you wanting?
I just got a schweet new phone (but it is still on the cheap end of phones if you resign up for your contract), it ended up costing me $70.
$35 for a 2 gig storage card and $30 for wireless (bluetooth) headphones to go with it.
Gives me a nice mp3/wmv+drm/AAC player that I always have with me. It sounds really great too.
It happened to be a Ericsson w580i.http://www.sonyericsson.com/spg.jsp?cc=us&lc=en&ver=4000&template=pip1&pid=10856&zone=pp
It is still a pretty low end phone though.
My point is, unless you really need 60 gigs of space for something, you might first look into a new nice phone with a long battery life and a good music player. That way you always have it with you, and you do not have to worry about taking something extra.
I personally found it much more useful as a music player then my MP3 player ever was, as I just bought a pair of headphones for my gym bag and another for my car to take to school or when waiting at a doctor or something. You can also get more then one memory card, they are the size of a thumbnail, if you need more then 2 gigs. It is not as convenient then as a iPod. Higherend phones support the 4gig or better mem cards.
Just saying, you might look into it.
You can then also have a nice camera phone that does all other cool stuff too, along with phoning!
My phone is clearly not an iPod, but it really is quite nice, and it is a cheap music phone too, not even a great one!
*note* You do not have to get wireless headphones, so you do not have to worry about charging them...but they last a while and can be charged off of any USB port, so, ehh.Alternating Logo
