I just wanted to ask some things about the NW-HD5, to see if i should get it. About the music that can be played on it, can my existing collection on my computer be transfered to the NW-HD5 or do i have to rip every single one of my cd's, because it would get annoying than, i have over 250cd's and i would never rip them again, it'd take forever. Another thing, is that does it play gapless playback w/ mp3's or just the Atrac3's? I wouldn't want to convert my collection to Atrac3's like i do w/ my MD player, i just really want to stick w/ mp3's. Last thing, have they fixed the Cracked Buttons on the newer editions of the HD5 or would i have to wait a little bit before they fix them completely. Thank you for your reply. Edit: Oh, another thing, this is a huge one. Is it compatible with Windows 98. I know Sonic Stage is but is the NW-HD5 compatible with it. Or do i have to upgrade to XP. I know the Ipods not compatible w/ 98, but i do now the Creative Zen Touch is, so that'd be my next choice.
