I need an external drive for occassional shifting large files, backing stuff prior to reformatting a computer. Is an iPod robust enough? Have a had the 60GB recommended. However someone told me of them iPods not getting a great wrap on Fair Go. I didn't see it.

Any other suggestions?

The wrap on fair go was about apple not honouring the warranty's because of faults were caused by mistreatment(being dropped) a dent on the casing..
I use a protective hard cover on mine,I would say it would be as robust as most 2.5inch portable external drives...
Mine has been dropped from ******* to breakfast and I dear say it's more good luck then good management that it's still going, so I guess the hard cover was a good investment..
If you want purely an external drive don't buy a ipod or any mp3player, as you will be paying that little bit extra for it.
But if you want sounds go ipod
