    Can be USB. I'm running WIN98 so fuck an iPod. How are the Creative Zens or whatever? I also want to be able to play shit in my car. Is the 6GB Zen worth it?

    The best mp3 player for the least amount of money is one that someone gives you as a gift!

    (that's how I got my iPod) LOL

    I want an MP3 player. They do a 512MB one for &#163;25/$45

    But that only holds about 40 songs I think...

    You could try www.play.com they have lots of cheap stuff. And good stuff, if you type digital camera in there's a MINT one thats the size of a credit card, and only &#163;15 :) and comes with all the cables and a case etc.

    I'll search for a mp3 player and get back to you

    FUCKING HELL they're expensive!

    If you go to newegg.com or buy.com their products are normally cheaper than other stores, websites, etc ...

    Circuit City and Best Buy's websites will also let you compare items and products. There is another site (can't recal now) that I used to decided on the type of Flat Panel I was going to purchase.

    Forget the overpriced Apple shit...buy a clone.

    I got a 20gb RIO KARMA at www.av4less.com for $90 thru Ebay auction! It's reconditioned, but it's fine! I will not spend $400 for a small gadget that will most likely be dropped and broken within a week.

    If you don't go for the harddrive style player, make sure to get at least 512mb of storage -- that's about 3-6 CDs worth of music.

    OR, go to Walmart and buy a $30 CD player-like player that reads MP3s. Burn the MP3s onto CDRWs yourself and you get nearly 200 MP3s per CD.

    If your really Moving around -STAY AWAY from any MP3 Player with a hard drive.
    Stick with the Flash MP3 Players, as there are no moving parts, OR drives to wear out.
    If you drop or bump a drive based MP3 player...your hosed as the disk will be damaged.

    I really like my IRiver FP790.
    These seem to have the best sound, especially if coupled with the Sennheiser headphones.
    A co-worker thanked me for the recommendation, I believe he bought the 800 series, and he absolutely LOVES it.
    Great Sound, LOTS of options, FM, Line In, Microphone, MP3, Equalizer..etc etc.

    Get a newer model of the Iriver, as then you can transfer files ON and OFF of the unit like a portable drive.

    For Playing in the car:

    Aftermarket Stereos - generally if your not using your preamp outs, sometimes the headunit allows for an AUX in. Simply get a stereo jack to RCA female, with a set of shielded RCA cords, and into your car stereo pre amp outs.

    If your not sure what you have, FM Modulation is probably the easiest way to go.
    There are several makes of FM modulation devices, and they are fairly inexpensive.
    Radio shit has them, or check out http://www.cardomain.com/shop
    Crutchfield probably has them too...but as always, crutchfield is overpriced.
