The nipod

Comments Off on The nipod

This was going to be a bit of a review of the nipod, but at the moment it’s a bit of a damning indictment of the poor thing. I don’t know if it’s a dodgy cable, or a dodgy nipod, but it’s not working.

Well, that’s not strictly true. It *is* working, however it isn’t connecting to the PC. Annoyingly it’s now got 4 gigs of music on it, more or less, which – if it goes back – I won’t be able to delete first.

I’m hoping bloke from e-bay will send me a reply today. Currently my opinion of it is shaped around the fact that it’s phenominally slow at dealing with a directory simply filled with the equivalent of 4 gigs in folders of albums. I can’t *actually* use the menu to select an album at the moment, because it flips out having listed them. So I can only listen to the tracks in order. Which is annoying. I also, because I was having a fiddle, disconnected it, and wandered about with it before going through and making the folder names all make sense (so some are album names, and some are artist names).

Its power on time is a bit long too, but, well, until I’ve actually got a 100% working one I’m a little unwilling to go any further on the whole, what’s it like. It looks a lot like an ipod though, which is fun :-)
