Most of the flash memory players with 256 - 512 MB seem to average between $100 - $150 USD. I have an RCA Lyra thing that my mom gave me that only holds 64MB. The other downside is that with this one, I *have* to use MusicMatch to transfer tunes to it. Sucks. Flash memory players might not be a bad way to go since you can make them any size a memory card will hold. -- Alan McCoy http://www.coingo.net/freeapple - Free Mac stuff > Anyway, I have one more friend going to USA today for a week to San > Jose.
