You probably already read it on other sites but here is a little trick to speed up your iPods loading times. All you have to do is to simply defragment it and it should be faster for you. This only works for iPods that have been in use for a certain time, a new iPod is not defragmented.
To defragment you can use the windows tool that does it or any other software that is able to. Right-click, then select properties from the menu. A new window opens, select Tools and select Defragmentation. Could be a little bit different for other windows operating systems, this is the way for windows xp.This could also work with other Mp3 players, as i haven't tried it i wont say it will, but maybe :p
Easy.. Yes Very, And The Best Part Its Faster ;)
