I love my portable music devices, and have gone through several types and "upgrades." Just to tell a bit about my history with the devices I started with a 20GB Creative Zen Jukebox. From that, I went to a 5GB Creative Zen Micro. Then, I was bit by the Apple bug and bought my first iPod. A first generation 4GB iPod Nano. It was great, but the battery life was less then inspiring and I wanted more space for my music. It wasn't long until Apple answered my dreams and came out with the second iteration (second generation) of the iPod Nano devices with more space (8GB) and better battery life. Of course I had to have one, and sold my previous Nano to the same friend I gave the Zen Micro too several years back. I've been using my little 8GB Nano since then and it is an awesome little device. But, I'd like more. I've been considering upgrading to a device that can also do video but I like the smaller form factors. The new 3G (third generation) Nano can do video decently, but the screen is TINY! I've been looking and reading up on the new iPod Classic devices (both the 80GB and 160GB versions). The new touch is SLICK, but I'm waiting for a 32GB version or at least more then 16GB. Does anyone know if there are any 3rd party MP3/video players that are either compatible with iTunes, or can be "modified" to be so? I don't mind if my player doesn't say Apple on it or have their logo, as long as it can (or be hacked/tricked) into playing the iTunes content including the store made purchases (music and video).
