    Buying an MP3-CD player is the best choise for that. I have got a Philips Expanium (I think it was an EXP-101)
    and of course, you can listen to regular CD:s and Rewritable CD:s as well.

    But at least the Expanium costs alot more then a regular portable CD player. I use my stereo with a Minidisc recorder for taking my mp3s with me.

    MD the problem that it does not support MP3 format, so transcoding occurs when trasfering from PC to MD. Pretty much dead format anyway, even though it has good usability (shock proof etc).

    Yes, I know. MDs aren´t that popular, even less in the states. But here in Finland the format has grown in popularity. It has alot of both advantages and dissadvantages compared to CDs.

    A bit old, but usefull.
    It´s disturbing how you can write a CD alot faster than a MD. Still it´s a very portable format. There isn´t the risc of getting the CD destroyed by dropping it on the ground when you are out running for example.
    A MD doesn´t get any scratches. You can safely use it as frisbee, not something you would try with a precious CD (Okay, not something I look for in a format, bu still).

    It´s excelent for recording a mix of your mp3s and then just re-record the disc with a new set the next time you´re going somewhere without your computer. I found I used my MD-stereo less after I bought a CD-RW though. But it´s easier carrying 2 MDs and the player in your pocket then a CD holder, the player and then having to juggle and make sure that 3 items don´t fall on the ground and get smashed. Something I found uncomfortable a few years back.

    I still prefer the MP3-CD-player, my expanium cost me 995,- (FIM), (a bit over 167 euros). The CD is such a great format, because it's large usability and large MP3 storing capability. This was the reason why i didn't buy an MP3 player, where you store the MP3's in a memory, which capacity is usually around 64 mb's. Using these kind on players, you always have to have a computer around when you wanna change the player's music...

    Plus that blanks CD-Rs cost alot less then memory (or MDs for that mather).

    The problem from the start with portable mp3 players has been the storage capacity.
    There was a player called the eGo which basicly supported a unlimited amount of memory. It used Compact Flash-memory and thanks to the microdrive (by IBM, I think)you could have 2 GB+ of memory.
