Looks like my Rio500 has finally died. Its been having problems getting file transferred over for about a week. I finally got some transferred over this morning, according to the software, but when i turned it on nothing was there. I’ve had this for a couple of years now so i guess i got my moneys worth. Now i’ve got some choices to make, find a used one via ebay, find a new model, or get an iPod. I think i’ll see how ebay will work out going prices seem in the 40-50 range. If that doesn’t work out in a few days, maybe i’ll just get an iPod at the apple store.
