    I am buying an ipod for a long (2 month) holiday and need it for photo transfer as well as music.

    I have seen on the Boots website the 30GB 40GB and 60GB models.
    All three say the battery life is 8 hours whereas other sites (including Apple) show 15 hours. Are the Boots 8 hour models old versions or have they only made the 15 hour model and Boots have made an error?

    The Apple website only show the 30GB and 60GB. Does anyone know why they don't show the 40GB... is it old or are they imports?

    Any help well be appreciated.

    The 40GB model is old, and has been replaced by the 30GB model in the latest rationalisation of the range. Apple's quoted battery life for all iPod photos is 15 hours - in my experience, that's optimistic and 8 hours may well be more realistic under typical use conditions, but all iPod Photos have the same battery and power consumption.

    Be warned that there is a known problem with the headphone output on the iPod Photo that doesn't afflict other iPods - due to the redesign to include video output, the headphone output produces constant low-level distortion, which is just about audible on the standard earphones, but can be quite annoying on anything better. See the iPod Photo discussion forum on Apple's website for more details.

    Thanks for the warning. I have read the Apple website and it has now put me off.

    The other player that seems to be good for Photo's is the i-river H340. Does anyone have any opinions on this player? After looking through the threads, most people don't bother looking at the iriver and a few are die hard fans.

    Sound quality is very important to me, any constructive advice?

    I would just buy a regular iPod (i.e. a monochrome-screened one) and use that to transfer your photos onto (I'm assuming you were only planning on using the iPod as a storage mechanism and not something to actually view photos on)

    How about the Archos AV4100...??

    Compact flash slot built in (you can get an adaptor for other media), it's very easy to transfer photos....
    MP3 player AND A VIDEO PLAYER AND RECORDER! :clap:

    :lesson: You can record from the TV, use the timer function (which will also change chanel on your TV or STB!), or any other Video source!
    I've got 200 Albms, 30 full movies and 35Gb space left!
    The screen is plenty big enough to watch by yourself, or you can plug it into a TV - PAL or NTSC...

    Even the Mrs rates it highly! :thumbsup:

    :zonked: Get one! :zonked:

    Can't say I've ever noticed this - with either HD580's or DT231's.
