I don't go on any kite flying trip without my zune. It is 30GB, has all my videos (including about 38 full length movies for long plane trips), pictures of manouvers, and all my music. It is one of my best friends.

Not an ipod fan here. I really like all my music that I rip at 320 Kbps to stay that way.

I use the Creative Zen player. I like the flexibility of not having to use I-tunes and being able to dump anything I want onto it without converting or format conflicts. My Zen W holds 60 gig, plays movies and MP3's. The best thing is that you hook it direct to your computer with a USB, it installs like a hard drive and you drag and drop. Super easy! Also has FM radio with multiple adapts for just about every memory card on the market.

The only drawback to the Zen W is that it is a little big. I am looking at getting the smaller one without the screen cuz I can velcro strap it to my belt/arm while I fly without having to worry about cracking the screen by accident.

Gotta have tunes when you fly tho, makes it all that much bettah!

Archos Gmini 402 works for me. Could do with an easier / quicker way of converting files for it though. Took a few tries B4 I got the B DVD sorted on it.

One piece of advice if you don't mind. I am trying to find some secure headphones or easpieces that dont make me look like a gork of a cyberman.

I'm a Creative fanboy. I've got 4 of their .mp3 players.
I like the MuVo TX FM for the beach.
It holds enough songs for an afternoon's flying session plus it has FM radio.

There are several different play modes and EQs, plus a custom EQ to adjust the sound to your tastes. It takes an AAA battery, so I never worry about running out of power. I just pop another NiMH rechargeable and I'm good for another 16 hours.

No special software is needed to transfer files- just drag & drop. It only takes a couple of minutes to put a fresh set of tunes on, so I change them every day. It only cost $35, so I have more $ for Revs! :D

I have a little Samsung MP3 Clip Player that works way well enough to suit my needs. I pay Macintosh more than enough money for my design equipment needs, I don't need to give them any more. ;)

Come on Carolyn.. you can never pay Mac too much... I know I just updated my FinalCut Pro for 4 'b's (new universal currency we can all understand!) ... just to do video's of Kites and kids! .... plus we are a 4 macs and seven iPod's household and I wouldnt have it any other way (dont tell my clients that though ;) )

The Zune does have the videos, pictures, music, podcasts, wireless file sharing, USB connectivity and runs mp3, mp4, wmv, wma, and mpeg, as well as jpg. The only things I don't like about it is that if your computer is just an average computer, then the software will lag, and you cannot open it like an external hard drive.

Thanks for that, not "shure" I like the idea of the in ear phones. Would rather go for over ear. Will have a look on ebay at them though.
