please help me
I have received a seagate storage unit with 149GB of music on it. I have two hp laptops. One has 29GB of free space and the other has 22GB's. Must I go out and buy something similar to the seagagte in order to store this music for my personal use? I don't have an ipod, but if I did, could I store all of this on it and then selectively copy the music I wanted to a CD using my music software?

It would be your best option... It'll cost 80bucks for 500Gigs, and can store more than just music.

only if you buy the 160GB iPod


modified ones with even more storage

on another note..... you could try compressing your music with winrar

but I don't know if it's possible to compress 149GB into 51GB

it's like piece of bread.... you can squeeze it tightly with your hands, so it it looks like a smaller piece....... but it still takes up space
