Anapod works "ok", but is really suboptimal when dealing with several IPODs on 2 computers. Any suggestions?

I've heard that Rockbox is the best firmware/software to use, but I've honestly never gotten around to putting it on my Ipod.

Do you know if Rockbox lets you use WMP rather than iTunes?

I'm honestly not sure, there's a whole site dedicated to the Rockbox ware though, just use some google-fu, and I'm sure it'll pop up.

I use Rockbox on my Sansa

If you like being limited and not having as much control as a user of YOUR product, then stick with the OEM software

You can mange it with any software that can manage a mas storage mp3 player. I have rockbox on my gen1 nano, and love it. Just drag and drop in a folder and the firmware can self manage.

Also just as a note, you can't load rockbox on 6th Gen iPods, only 5.5 and earlier.

EDIT: So after reading you seem to want management software, while keeping the iPod firmware

Songbird –– I enjoyed this when I used it. Easy, cover management and all the fancy stuff. Works with multiple iPods on a single system, or an iPod using multiple systems

YamiPod –– This is a small self-executable that you can store on the device in mass storage mode. Just put the iPod in diskmode, hook it up to a PC and run the software. Then you can copy music on it from anywhere. Works with Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Anyone here have any experience with Winamp?  I'm looking to replace iTunes with an MP3 based player and I've heard it works well.

What is the best site to explain the basics of all this iPod stuff?

BTT because anapod (redchair) won't answer my emails and mediamonkey won't let me transfer playlists. HELP!!!!
