"STOP!!!!!!"3.0 starson by jabor93
Pros: large ammounts of space, simple interface, all around good media player.
Cons: itunes, easy to scratch, fatal hard disk problems!!!!
Summary: the biggest thing with the classic is it is using a hard disk drive rather then flash memory. the hard disk makes it more susceptible to problems with the memory. after about a year and a half mine stopped working properly. it had been giving me problems after six months. what it did was it stopped syncing. it would say that a file could not be found. that meant the firmware was corrupt. my warranty was still valid and apple still wouldn't do anything about it. i would replace my firmware and it would work for a while, and do the same thing again, until eventually it would no longer allow it to be replaced. what happens when it is corrupt is it crashes iTunes. what you must do is go to format disc to erase the corrupt software. after a while, it wouldn't even let me format it anymore. do yourself a favor, and go with flash memory. id recommend a Zune hd, but an iPod touch, or nano would suffice as well.
