    Default Recommend me a digital music player (eg iPod)

    I need a new music player for the gym, my MP3 player is dying. What would you recommend? It would need to be able to play .mp3 format. I don't own an I-anything so please talk slowly.

    Before I got an iPod I had just a general MP3 player. It was just a cheapy so it didn't have a display screen or anything to tell me what song was playing, but I could still have my music on random. This was about 10yrs ago though so things could have changed since then haha.

    In saying that, I loved my iPod (I just use my iPhone currently). I had to download iTunes, and bring all my music across but it was pretty easy. As an apple novice at that point I hates iTunes, but now I know how to use it, it's pretty easy. Plus iPods these days are so lightweight and have great storage capacity 8gb or 16gb.

    I am only familiar with iPods, so I'm not sure about others.

    I've got an iPod shuffle that costs about $50? It holds maybe 200 songs.

    I've also got a bigger iPod (about the size of an iPhone) and it's 7.5 years old and still works perfectly. It holds about 8000 songs.

    I find iTunes easy to use. Part of the reason I haven't changed from apple is because I can't be bothered learning how to download on android and setting up an account.

    But overall, I am happy with iTunes and my iPod.

    So can you play music you've got elsewhere on your Ipod? Eg, I've got music on my PC from CDs, can I play those on an iPod?

    You can transfer your whole cd collection onto your iPod.

    For the gym I always use my ipod shuffle. It's really small and you can clip it to your clothes.

    Ipods got through ITunes. You just drag and drop into your itunes collection

    What sort of phone do you have? Can it double as your music player?

    I have an old fashioned mobile phone - it's not a smart phone, it's a stupid phone.

    I really love iPods or you could invest in an iPhone which does everything. Get something with as much Gig storage as you can afford and you can watch movies you have downloaded, or documentaries on youtube or learn french/check the stockmarket while you are gymming if you so desire...
