    Could you post in here and tell me what kind of MP3 player you have, its storage capacity, the price range, and how you like it? Also, any other recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks. :)

    20GB iPod, free on freeipods.com (prob around $250 retail), does the job

    I wouldnt get it if you wanted one for the gym. Get one of those flash models, like iRiver

    30gb ipod for 374$ when it was the highest end model. i like it overall, but not for gym use. it's too large for it to be comfortable at the gym. i would consider an iriver as i've heard they have superior sound quality.

    I fot the Rio Cali 128MB MP3 playerfor around $150. It had just the right amount of songs for a workout. But it completely buzzed out on me less than a year after I bought it. I did some research on the problem I was having, and it was fairly common. I suggest you stay away from the Rio players.

    I have a 64mb old old old POS made by some nonexistant company with old technology from ~ 5 years ago. It works for what I need it for though. My current playlist is like an hour and 18 minutes or something. :hs: Plenty long. The connection is serial though so it takes awhile. :mamoru:

    Iriver IFP-790, or flash player with 256mb memory. I got it for 150 from best buy a few months ago. At times I wish I had more memory, only because I don't solely use it for working out. If you just want to use it to work out 256 or 128 should be plenty. I can fit the full 60 something songs on it if I format my songs to .wma and 128kb. All in all, a great deal, you get everything you need with it, armband and neck deal.
