    you really had to choose your tracks wisely with only 32mb of space.

    like when i first got my psp value pack with the 32mb memorystick, shame on you sony for dont shipping it with a larger one!

    Nice history lesson, that 64mb MP3 player cost as much as a 160GB PMP does now.......

    I've had one shitty one off of eBay, an iPod mini, and iPod 60GB video, and now a 160GB classic. Good times.

    32mb Audiovox -> 256mb Rave-MP -> 512mb Audiovox -> 1GB Samsung Y2 -> 20GB Zen Touch -> 4GB iPod Mini (replaced hdd with CF card) -> 4GB Sansa e200 -> 8GB iPhone

    And I still have every one (only half still working though).

    it's like saying betamax is the next blu ray [​IMG]

    anyways my first mp3 player was a ipod video 60gb and now i have a classic 80gb, before i always used cd players, i remember when i used to carry wallets of cds on the bus if i wanted to listen to some music, now i can fit over a 1000 tracks in a mp3 player, it's very fascinating when you think about it.

    That's it.

    I've had 2 plus my DS...
    Creative Zen Micro 5GB, broke and returned it plus about $40 for a Toshiba Giagbeat 40GBs, this malfunctioned too and I returned it for a Wii, just using my DS as an Mp3 player.

    My Wii seems to have been stolen though so I don't have a proper MP3 player or a Wii now...

    ¡Feliz cumpleaños!

    Right now, my primary MP3 player is a 16 GB iPod touch, my secondary iPod is an 8 GB nano. Before those, I've retired a 30 GB 5th gen, a 30 GB Photo and a 30 GB 4th gen. So I've been through many iPods in the last 4 years, but they've all been purchases with zero buyer's remorse!
