The USB cable was a big selling point for me, plan on fabbing it into the aux port under the a/c controls. Thought it would be cool to stab a flash drive into the port and go.
Found 8gb-16gb flash drives for 10.00-25.00 online, better option than using an iPod IMO. The 16gb should hold about 3-4000 songs, figured on buying 2 and rotate them in and out.
this was my thoughts exactly...I havn't tried it yet though...
The thing about having the ipod is it will allow you to play randomly through the songs list.
when you have a Flash drive you are at the mercy of what is within a specific folder, you cant have acces to everything.You could dump all the songs into a common folder,but then you loose any organization.
The ipod allows you to sort "on the fly" so to speak, either by artist, song, album, etc, thats the beauty of the MP3 players, their software allows you to access your songs as you please in a couple different manners...
I am wondering if you could create a root folder with all the songs, and then create Artist folders or album folders, with shortcuts linked to the root folder? Instead of having the actual file in 2 different locations?
