Anyone else using your ipod as your portable hd for music?
After reading someone's post on the roadrunner section about using their ipod as their primary source of music, i decided to try this out with my aging 20gig ipod. Aside from it being slow to go from track to track (by about 2-5 seconds), it is working out quite well. I am using a firewire cable for it and it is a relatively handy setup. I use roadrunner primarily (centrafuse would be good, but it takes about 10 minutes to load up the 20 gig ipod's music each and everytime), and it handles ipod connectivity pretty well. I had thought about getting the latest greatest 60 gig ipod video since i really only listen to about 40 gigs of worthwhile music now adays anyway.
Anyway else using this setup? The way I see it, it's essentially a portable hd anyway, but is ultra easy to bring inside to update tracks, and id3 tag fixes, etc. I carry a copy of yamipod on it (runs without installation) that acts as my ultra itunes replacement, so i can rip or add music to it at anytime and on any computer.
I'd like to hear you're successes and with which frontend(s).
