Anyone know anything about ipods? If you don’t, then the rest of this post will be a bunch of techy jargon, and you may as well skip it.
I purchased an ipod today to replace my dying non-ipod mp3 player, and unless there’s some trick to it, I’ve been misled as to its capabilities.
Previously, I could plug my old player into my computer, and view its contents just like it was an extra hard-drive. I could add and delete files the same way. I could then listen to those files by simply plugging in headphones and pressing ‘play’. The former aspect is important to me because that’s how I do my radio show. I view my song files and drag them into my laptop’s DJ software. And the latter is important if I want to listen to my songs while walking along, or driving in my car.
As I understand the ipod, it can do both of those things, but not simultaneously. If I want to be able to access the files hard drive style for my DJing, then the ipod won’t be able to recognize the songs and play them while I’m walking about. If I add the songs so that I can listen to them while walking about, itunes changes all of the filenames into gibberish; and while I could theoretically DJ in this fashion, I’d have no idea what song was what because they wouldn’t have recognizable names.
Can anyone save me?!?!
