Pros: Amazing Sound, Holds a **** load of music, Looks very cool,

Cons: Expensive, Syncing Problems

Right, so this has an incredible sound quality (with the right headphones, even better). I really love the way it looks, and I can fit thousands of my music on it. But it has a pretty huge problem that seems to be very common upon these iPods. So the problem lies with syncing, the very first time I synced, it worked, everything got on there fine. The next time however? It seemed to be working, it said syncing song blablabla out of blablabla, and then it finished. I disconnected my iPod from the USB, and turning it on I noticed that I had no music whatsoever. Every time I want to sync, I have to uninstall iTunes, and then install it again.

But, I still love this thing even if it annoys the hell out of me once in a while.

Install rockbox on it then just drag and drop your files onto it
I think Rockport don't support ipod classic model..
maybe I am wrong...
Rockbox for Apple: iPod 1g through 5.5g, iPod Mini, iPod Nano 1g
If you're using a PC, you can sync music to your iPod with foobar2000. Download foobar and then get the iPod addon.
whoa!!! I was really wrong!!!...
Now I can Rockport my Ipod too...
have 2 of them... Now I dont have to convert to itunes format...
thanks randomkid for the link...
iTunes is kind of a quirky software to use in general. I've had issues with the "Sync" process in getting the music transferred. I've been through this process many times with the various "i" devices that my daughter has owned.
The option to check music, uncheck files, etc. seems to lack some meaning. However, if you bring in new music to iTunes, just select the files, then drag them over to your connected iPod device under "music". Your songs should be in place. Future syncs of the device should then just back up the songs or files onto your computer.
Some day ... depending on my time, I might just read documentation on using iTunes, if such documentation exists. I'd love to find my way around the various quirks in the software. Rock on.
