The biggest issue I'm having with my iPod touch is all the songs I have are at different volumes.  What's a good MP3 player that adjusts songs to the same volume (auto gain) ?

I could do this with a computer running Virtual DJ (it does auto gain very well) however this is over kill for what I'm trying to accomplish.

One of the things that iTunes does when it unwanted writes to the files is to put some normalizing data in them, so I would expect it shouldnt be a problem?

It is called sound check, you have to enable it under playback in iTunes Preferences, this data is then synced to the iPod touch. To make it work ensure that Sound Check is enabled in Settings under Music.

Hope this helps.

Likewise when I used it, was the only way to get a usable level out of an iPod on older music that wasnt masted by a moron.

You can apply track based "replay gain" to your entire collection with this:
http://mp3gain.sourceforge.net/

It modifies the files so the effect works in all/any player.  Stores undo information as meta data in tags in each file so the change can be undone via the program if needed.

So it seems Sound Check also has to be enabled on the iPod for it to work... seems to be working ok now, cheers for all the advice.

I second Ragnor's advice on MP3gain. I run all my MP3's through it before loading onto my iPhone, and you get rid of that clipping/distortion sound.
MP3 Gain is non-destructive - it doesn't recode your MP3s so you're not losing quality, and the change can be undone in literally 2 seconds.

If you want to use it specifically in iTunes/iPod, I suggest using the frontend called 'iGain' which does the same but imports your tracklist through iTunes.
