What is happening is the experience of PC users in general - relatively frequent hiccups with software. The iPod is made to run natively with a Mac, not PC. Apple updated them several yrs ago to work with PCs, but they still have hiccups. And it is NOT because they are Apple products, it's quite the opposite. It's because they are being "fudged" to work with PCs. In a PC world you must expect such problems. Until you make the full switch and get a Mac and a Mac version iPod, you will have such issues on occasion. As for the iRiver, it's a piece of junk. I had a couple of them before I went Mac and they were much less reliable than my iPods. But these are just my observations, YMMV.
