      Bought this to convert all my cd's as wav files through I-Tunes
      Combined with a 1 terabyte HD..and you can keep all your music stored off your computer without the low quality of mp3's.

      It really holds a lot of music for little money!

              [...] I have ideals on this product and how you can prevent future shocks due to it being malfunctioned. I'm not going to exchange it but show my college students that when duying these ipods of any sort to turn it off and on to check to see if you will get shocked. This could be dangerous if a child gets ahold of this eletrical conducting ipod. Other than that, these ipods, your company is creating are very helpful in a lot of ways. Thanks for reading my comment. TY
