    From years of experience with PCs & laptops, I've become very familiar with these machines slowing down as their memory approaches capacity.

    So, who's i'pod/zen/rio/whatever is full, or approaching capacity?

    Has it started to work less quickly?

    Has your player started to slow down even at only half capacity?

    Will a 40gb player with 19gb used up work better/faster than a 20gb player with 19gb used up?

    yeah but these machines have hard disks..its the ram that dictates the speed rather than how much space on the storage device exists..
