Can iPods play "normal" MP3 tracks? Answered
OK, noob question, but google holds no clear answers (I just get lots of "convert iTunes to MP3" hits).
I'm thinking of buying a music player with a much larger memory than the current 2G. There are iPod-dedicated birdwatching products that tempt me towards Apple products, but I have hundreds of MP3 tracks.
If I get an iWhatever, will it play ordinary MP3 tracks "as is", will I have to convert them to iTunes, or will I have to start from scratch?
