Hi all, I'm new, so please be gentle with me! I'm just about to take the plunge and get an MP3 player. Top of the list is the 20Gb Sony HD5. One thing that's bothering me with his (and any alternative player I might choose) is this... I've only got a fairly small hard drive on my home laptop pc (30Gb) and I don't really want to increase the size of this if possible. Do I have to have copies of all the music on my MP3 device on the laptop too? Or can I just delete the files once they are uploaded onto the player? Do programs like Sonic Stage/ I-Tunes etc insist on synching the files, or can I just uploads tunes to directories on the player as though it were just an external drive? Also, I see that Sony advertise that the HD5 can be used as an external drive. Does anyone know if it's possible to get a card reader that can read photographs from a compact flash card onto the HD5? I realise I can't view the pictures on that player, but it would be useful as a storage device when I'm out and about with my digital camera. Thanks in advance!
