    I would go for the Ipod, more support for it than the creative labs version and more reliable. A friend of mine recently bought an Ipod and cannot fault it, don`t know the model though.

    Creative all the way! I have had 2 creatives the creative zen and the Nomad jukebox by creative and not a problem to use. Easier to load on your mp3s than an ipod (I have tested an ipod and it much worse for that) also with the dreatives you can store ANY files on it and use it as a portable hard drive...you cant do that with the i pods as they use a different file compression which means you can only put music on it and when you take it back off again you need to use itunes to listen to it..


    Creative all the way baby

    I have the carbon rio 5GB which is a lot smaller than either of those and its a great little player. However I have recently brought Sarah (my gf) a ipod mini and I must say it is very good! Down side to them is exactly what TFU has pointed out but it depends on what your girlfriend needs one for.

    One major plus point (and this is the machine I would pick) is the accessories for the ipods. Itrip is fantastic the bose systems you can get are brilliant, this would make the deciding factor for me.

    cheers guys, im leaning towards the ipod as ive read lots of reviews on the creative and many say the headphone connection breaks after a few weeks

    she would only need it for music nothing else so the different compression file doesnt matter

    anyone else?

    if its for head phone use only I really would consider these as they are fantastic small players - I love mine for bike riding and walking the dog





    You can get them with 5GB or 6GB, T3 rate it as one the best on the market for the money only one that is better is IPOD (big).

    more info on the above here if you are intrested:

    http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/sho....asp?model=267

    Big price differance as well IPOD minis are £139.00 with that you get USB lead and headphones - worth knowing is that you dont get a charger with it (it charges through USB) you can buy chargers seprately though. Carbon Rio is on Ebay shop buy it know price of £77.00 for 5GB one...link below:

    I've got a pink Ipod mini, it's brilliant! Don't know much about the other one but a friend has it and after playing around with mine she wishes she'd got an ipod!

    Which colour would you get her??

    I got a pink one which was a bit silly cos it means Jace can't use it. Then again that might be a good thing! He probably would have lost or broken within a week!

    . . . . Mini Ipod all the way!!

    If I wanted a 5 gig player I'd go for the Iriver H10 as it looks much cooler than the others and has a colour screen.

    Ipod mini is more girly though
