I must put in my vote for the iPod. We have had three different kinds of MP3 players and the iPod is the only one we haven't had trouble with. Yes, they tend to be slightly more expensive, but when you consider the cost of ownership, replacing or repairing, it is actually cheaper.

Also: iTunes is the easiest online music store to use and I think offers more choices for organizing our 4,000 plus songs into usable lists. Plus we podcasts.

I have to put in a vote for the ipod mini, as well.

Apple has discontinued them and has them for a big discount:

I have a pink one and I love it. I still haven't filled it yet and I use it every day. It seems you can get the coolest cases for the minis rather than the new nanos, too. I have one of these:

Good luck!

PS: My mom has an iriver and I hate the thing. The interface is confusing and I can't really get behind it. Also, it's huge. I can't even fit it in my pocket.

iPod Nano here. I use it everyday. E V E R Y day, and have never had any problems with it. I use mine mainly for audiobooks, but I've also put nearly my entire CD collection on it too. I plug it into my car stereo when driving, I listen to it while grocery shopping, and anywhere I'm waiting around. It's so easy to use. Love it. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my iPod!

Only recommendation, if you get an iPod, get a case or skin (and/or screen protector) for it too, and never go without. iPods scratch easily!!

I have to vote for Creative Labs Zen--I got a 20 GB Creative Zen Touch for around $200 on It's not for running, as it's pretty big, but I use it every day in my car on the way to and from work. Very easy to add and organize music, and the battery last forever! I don't even have to charge it every week, even though I use it most every day.

I also have an Ipod mini Mines pink Too. Hubby bought it for me for mothers day last year. Although, we had a problem with our old laptop and my hubby bought a new one, well when we loaded the software on the new one somehow all my songs got wiped out. :crying: So now I am starting over. We like it otherwise.

my last gf was gonna get me an Ipod 10, but I did some research and thought the Rio carbon 5 would be better for the money
I loaded over a thousnd songs and was happy,
I tried to do anything with the playlists,
and when I tried to reinstall, everything went to bailzes
the battery was good though, lasted hours and hours

I would not recomend this to anyone now
