    How long has your current portable music player lasted you? I'm just curious =P. My current 5G iPod has lasted a little over a year. I heard about iPod lasting from 2 weeks to over 3 years, so the time before failure seems pretty large...

    I had a 2GB ipod which has lasted a year and 2 or 3 months..but I gave it to my mum and bought a 30GB 5th gen ipod

    I had problems with my 2GB freezing, playing music during the night and deleting music, but dixons refused to send it to apple, as when they did their "test" the ipod was fine..

    My 30gb ipod has lasted me about 18 months so far with no problems, before that I had a creative zen nomad 40gb thing that would probably still be working had I not set magnets down beside it.

    My current one (Sony NW-A300, i think), has lasted just over 2 years so far,
    Before that i had a Creative Zen Jukebox thingymabob, and that lasted about 3 years of me owning/using it everyday, and now it sits on my shelf, but still worked last time i checked (which was around christmas time, i believe)

    I've had my iPod (3rd gen) since Xmas 2003, so that's about 3.5 years.

    It hasn't had any problems apart from me killing the hard drive (around Xmas '05) when I was skating and fell with it in my pocket, but I installed a new hard drive and battery and it's still working great with daily use (although with a couple of battle scars!).

    My Zen Sleek will have been going for 2 years this August. Only had one problem early on where the hard drive had failed, but the replacement has been working perfectly since.

    My Sony mini-disc player is still going strong :P I'm sure the ****er's invincible.

    My 30GB iPod lasted for about seven months. I've had the replacement for about a month and it still works!

    My 20GB 4G iPod has lasted me since the day it was released in summer 2004, so that's now over three years ago. No problems yet.

    It's pretty badly scracted (it seems my pockets are lined with sand paper) and the start/pause button doesn't work anymore....but besides that it's fine!
