DJ mixes on iPod

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
i have yet to get an iPod for lack of fundage; but i also want to know:

how does the iPod perform when listening to DJ mixes and big files?

i.e. separate 5-6 minute tracks/mp3's mixed into each other ripped from a CD OR 15MB-25MB mp3 files as well as whole DJ mixes that are upwards of 70MB-110MB.

is there, some sort of "skipping"? less battery life? long loading time?

please advise

    slightly less battery life.

    otherwise it's fine

    there is a small gap in between tracks for some reason...

    it's on every single cd i've ripped that is a continuous mix separated into multiple tracks. i don't why it does this, but it gets annoying...

    Absolutely no problem on extended files: I've got 6 hour-long files that run straight through without a hint of a skip.

    I have an original 5 giger and I have been listening to it for about 4 hours straight and it didn't have a full charge to start. I guess its because I am such a strong boy

    Seriously though, the ipod doesn't skip but sometimes it takes a second or two to load a long song into memory so the hard drive doesn't have to spin the whole time and waste battery power. Big song..longer wait. But I wouldn't really call it a long wait.

    you boys are all sexy beasts! some strong, some weak. haha.

    thanks for clearing it all up. i guess what i'll have to do is just keep my mix mp3's in 15-20 minute intervals and consolidate tracks ripped from a CD and not have to worry about large fileages.

    i think i'll definitely be getting an iPod "soon," like a 17" Powerbook-wait kinda soon.
