    Have any of you had to buy a 32gb micro sd (for music/ media storage) or is the 16gb card big enough for you?

    i have so much music that i fear i'll have to keep my ipod classic and use my droid.

    i really wish i could keep everything on one device.

    The iPod is a much better music player. Both for syncing ability, and controls.

    True, but Pandora balances it out.

    Don't let you iPod hear you say the word "Android". It will self destruct in your hand and/or pocket. :icon_eek:

    Honestly, I hardly ever listen my music collection now that I have Pandora everywhere I go. My music collection isn't huge though (only about 5GB [10 movies fill the rest of the space]), so I didn't have to make any compromises when I sold my iPod touch.

    I use to agree with you but i gotta say I don't think thats a problem anymore. Someone has just posted software called "songbird" and it syncs right up to the droid really easily, has playlists, lyrics, etc. I'm trying it out now, but that was my main gripe with the droid. The lack of of being able to sync to my pc for music. But it seems like that problem could be gone now

    Well, I'm approaching capacity on an 80 GB. 16 GB just wouldn't do.

    Pandora is great, but not really apropos to this thread, which started out with a question about SD card capacity. Also, when you want to listen to album "x," Pandora only works if you're a paid subscriber. If Pandora is enough for someone, great for them, they'll never have to buy another CD (assuming they stay around).

    iPod for carrying personal music, Pandora for exploring new stuff. IMHO.

    I love my Droid...and my ipod...and my creative vision:m. I don't think that my Droid could effectively replace my mp3 player. It's great to have some 'emergency' music on, and the streaming ability is great. As a primary music player, there are better choices.

    You're going to get answers all across the board. I mean, some people use the Nano or Shuffle and are happy with the capacity they're getting.

    My Droid isn't replacing my iPod Classic but that's because the head units in my cars don't have interfaces to control the Droid like they do for the iPod. Because of that, the Droid's capacity isn't really all that important to me for music since it only contains a small subset of my entire collection.

    Obviously, if you're trying to converge devices and you have a large library then your perspective can be very different.
