Anybody have... or know of any good home brews for this thing? I would really love to put a stripped down XP on it for playing mostly movies and videos and such.

I have been looking all over but nothing has really cought my eye as far as apps go.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Why do people think it's really cool to fiddle?

I want to be able to just drag and drop video's and such off my pc onto the iPOD without dicking around with converting to a compatable format for the iPOD.

I would be nice if there was a windows type of app with media player on it.

iPod sux, get a real MP3 player, or a Sony Ericsson Walkman.

Get floola, it's a program you can run that lets you sort out your ipod without fucking around with itunes. It works like a drag and drop.

The thing about ipods, is that their hardware is designed to not work without software managing it from a pc. Thusly, it can never work like a normal usb device.

Whenever songs are placed on your ipod, a playlist must be created. This is done to sort out all the music with messed up MP3 Tags. All music copied to an ipod has a random 4 digit code for a name in a random 4 digit folder. This is so it's as annoying as possible to pirate music. Sure you can copy 60 odd folders full of randomly named assorted music, but you wouldn't want to sort through it.

I hate Apple, they make their stuff as difficult to use as possible (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BnLbv6QYcA&feature=channel_page), however so long as you reject itunes and make use of an alternative manager like floola then you'll be fine.

I enjoy my ipod now, now i've got the trauma of disinfecting my computer of apple software.

EDIT : Damn, rourke already linked the macbook wheel spoof :P

I have one of those stupid things and the only thing it's good for is storing my music so I can hook it up to my car... I don't see how someone can watch a movie on a 2 inch screen, so damn small.

I actually checked out Floola before making this post. But unless im blind I could not find any options for adding or removing video, only music.
