    You can make any ipod a virtual drive.

    I mean, this whole topic is much ado about nothing.

    Glad to see at least a couple people see what I'm saying. It's not a HUGE deal, but it's inconvenient. In this instance, I was adding the files for someone else, so of course I don't have the software. Why should I need it in the first place?

    I just got a Creative Zen Plus from ebay for 20 bucks, brand new. FM Radio, Voice Recorder, 2GB, a screen display, and the same size as the shuffle, stop-watch, annnd all that I needed was a USB cable to begin adding tracks.

    What's this lunacy about "as simple as dragging music"? I don't even have to do that. I plug my iPod into my computer and that's it. There's no dragging at all. iTunes just puts on any new audio/video file I have that isn't on the iPod.

    Automatically? I hope it atleast gives warning before just copying random new files.
    You don't drag+drop because you use apple, huh? lol Is dragging and dropping allowed in mac?

    Yeah, drag and drop is allowed on Macs. I was recently working on a Powerpoint on my mac and wanted to insert a picture. All I had to do was drag and drop. So easy.
    I have a off brand mp3 player. I hate it. The overall functionality is awful

    Why would I need a warning? It just syncs with what I have in my iTunes.

    It isn't brain surgery...

    ha

    just bought my wife a macbook recently... (long time Windows user)

    I have to say I've been real impressed with how easy, convenient and fun these Macintosh products are. They streamline everything to make it easier and less frustrating to use. They're greeeeeeaaaaaat!

    Yeah. I dragged/dropped the files. They just didnt work once I did. It was like the player itself was mentally handicapped.
