ipod or Creative Zen?

So I want to buy an mp3 player, and I'm having a hard time making a choice. As I see it, Creative Zen players are cheaper than ipods, but the software isn't that great and the players are bigger. Ipods look beautiful but are pricey. [more inside]

Multiple mp3's on jukebox question

I've just got a very natty little mp3 player which comes with MusicMatch Jukebox 9 to transfer music from my PC to the player. So far, so good - but I'm having problems loading on multiple tracks with the same name - I'm much more into listening to albums straight through, and I have several albums by the same artists which (of course) have identical track names. Can anyone suggest a method of automatically renaming shed-loads of mp3's so I can listen to albums as they were meant to be heard, instead of missing out tracks which have appeared elsewhere already? I know it can be done manually, but life is too short (and Emerson, Lake and Palmer have recorded the same songs *way* too many times)! :-) Thanks!

How to rip and listen simultaneously?

Once in a while a friend comes along with a really cool new CD. What I want to do is: Instantly Rip it to my hard disk, listen to it at the same time, and talk to my friend. What I do now instead is: Start ripping, wait until the first track is finished, then listen to the first track while ripping the others. Talking gets difficult because every now and then I have to enqueue the next track to the player.

The Skinny on Ipods for the Uninitiated

I'm about to be the last person in the world to get an IPod (Shuffle) and was recently informed that you can only play ITunes music or mp3s ripped from your CDs. In other words, no mp3s from "other sources." I've looked everywhere for the answer, so, is it true? Thanks in advance.

I don't want mpga's, I want mp3's!

What the heck is an mpga and why is my computer saving music files in that format? I have an iBook G4 and about a week ago, when I downloaded music from audioblogs it started saving the files as mpga's, which won't open in iTunes. If I manually change them to mp3's, they open in iTunes, but are 0:00 long. I suspect it might have something to do with having downloaded RealPlayer (which I've since uninstalled), but I haven't been able to fix this or find any useful info on Mac help forums.

embedded audio in a gif

So, on Waxy links today, I found this gif file, which, when loaded in Winamp, plays a brief, irritating song. How's that happen? When I load it into Windows Media Player, it displays as an animated gif. One file type, multiple properties. Can anyone elaborate on what's happening here?

How to get Mod_Mp3 to read directories?

I'm running Apache 1.3, with the latest version of mod_mp3 to stream mp3s. It is pulling mp3s from 2 directories, one of which has a collection of mp3s not in subdirectories, and the other directory only has sub directories which contain mp3s. Mod_mp3 will read the mp3s from the first directory, but not the second one that only has subdirectories. What the duce?

Catch a fly with chopsticks

Can anyone recommend a moderately priced (i.e. less $ than an iPod) MP3 player that has BIG, EASILY-MANIPULATED CONTROLS? I have 20 CDs worth of Mandarin language instruction that I want to rip to MP3 and use as a companion on a daily walk. Because I'll be playing language instruction instead of music, I expect to need to pause, back up, and restart a given section frequently. I'd like a player that can be manipulated easily by feel without stopping to look at it. If it can be set to loop a particular track over and over that's a big plus (though I expect that's an uncommon feature because how many people want to hear the same song again and again?) Thanks very much for any and all suggestions!

Help me convert my old tapes and records into mp3 format

We were rearranging the shelves in my house today, and we found a bunch of old tapes from my
Dad's friends from when he lived in Spain (he was born there, as was I). His friends mixed
a bunch of bands together to make this very cool-sounding tape, and the thought struck me: Why not
rip this? (edit: also found bunch of old tapes my brother made of a punk radio station. woot!)

Of course, I lack the knowledge required.

So my question essentially is: what sort of process, programs, and materials is one required to
go through to convert these tapes to mp3? Would the machine I'd have to buy also double as a
tape-pl-ayer itself? What about records? I've been wanting a record player for a while, and I've
been wanting to rip some records as well. Are there record-rippers which double as players? Are
there record/tape player/rippers all combined into one machine? How complicated is this process?
How expensive does it have to be? I don't want to end up with really badly ripped files, but I
don't want studio equipment, either. Basically, what do I have to go through to get good
sounding, 192-320 kbps mp3s from my tapes and records that I could then distribute via
BitTorrent? Thanks.

MP3 Players

What non iPod hard drive MP3 players are you impressed with? Which are you envious of? Are there any that should be avoided? I'm looking to buy one in the range of $200-300US, with sound quality (especially a rich low-end) being of primary importance. Thus I'd probably end up buying one with a 1.5G capacity that had great sound over a 5G player with only decent sound. Also, I'll probably be buying on eBay, unless anybody cares to persuade me otherwise.

Help retag my mp3s

Concerning a large batch of mp3s and their id3 tags: I have about 5 GB of music that I downloaded from Emusic about a year ago. Due to an exceedingly stupid maneuver on my part, I accidentally stripped all the id3 tags from the files, which ended up physically renamed to something like "Untitled Album - Untitled Track 1," etc. -- so I now have about 500 songs like this.

They're organized in folders by artist and album name, so that much information I have -- I'm now in search of a utility that will allow me to get the appropriate information from CDDB or something, and then batch rename the files so I don't have to manually, and painstakingly, do so 500 times. I have both Windows and OS X, so platform's not much of an issue. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
