Hi mattiscool,

The 5000 songs thing is a marketing blurb. It really depends on the quality of the files you are listening to, and at 5000 songs it wouldn't be all that flash. This is usually expressed as the sampling rate in terms of kbps (kilo-bits per second). The higher this rate the better the sound quality. So the fact that your friend has so much more room simply means that he values quantity over quality. If you want more songs on your ipod you'll need to reduce the sampling rate quality (thus file size in MB). You can do this with a number of audio applications, some of which are free.

Otherwise you might just want to listen to the same song on your ipod and your friends and see if the lower bitrate is good enough for you before you downgrade your audio file resolution.

BTW for ipod specific stuff you'll find most of your questions have already been answered on the Ipod forum on apple's site
