iPod without synching?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My PSP go fell 2' onto carpet and decided to call it quits. So I -rant-

Is there any way to load music onto an ipod touch as if it were a thumb drive or any other normal device? I'm going to buy a media player of sorts tomorrow at BB or Wal* as I'm not dealing without music for more than... tomorrow.

Lol @ my own sig.

Alternative media player suggestions are welcomed and appreciated!

Sansa Fuze with rockbox. See if you can find this model

It has a microSD slot so you can expand on its storage later, and it has great sound quality. You could do what I did and get a refurbished 8GB for $45 and get one day shipping.

Rockbox can be found here : http://www.rockbox.org/
Its a custom firmware that's easy to install and it improves the sound quality a noticeable amount.
File transferring is painless unlike the ipods.

I wouldn't say Rockboxing "improves' sound quality, it just allows for more lossless formats like FLAC instead of just ALAC on iPods.

But anyway, I don't think it would be possible (OP)

personally also have a Sansa Fuze, got it for $20 shipped from woot.com and added a 16gb microsd I had lying around. $200 for an MP3 player? lolz no... (2 broken ipods in my room, can't kill my Sansa after 2 years of working out)
post #6 of 10
I've thrown my Sansa across the room a few times in my sleep, you couldn't tell by looking at it, I got a rubber casing for it for $2.
My friend has gone through two ipods this year, he hasn't thrown or dropped them, the power button got stuck once, and the second time an update from Apple killed it.

SharePod would be quite suitable. But i guess iTunes also allows for drag and drop.

I'm going to check out the Fuze for sure. I'm also tempted to buy another go. The Fuze is more tempting because of $ but waiting for shipping isn't my thing. Lol... Definitely going to look into the Fuze.
