    I'm hoping someone can help me here on this.. does anyone know of a good (NON IPOD) 20gb+ mp3 player that can be used without the use of itunes or rapsody or some other mp3 software program and just drag and drop files onto the player itself? The old generic INIO player i had just died and i loved the fact i could plug it into my pc and it would show up as a removable hard drive and i could just drag and drop whatever i wanted to play in there.. so need to drm or licenses or anything.. are there anymore devices out there that would let me do this? Ive been looking at the Creative line, but also the Philips, and Toshiba Gigabeat series as well, maybe even a Zune, but dont know if they work this way.. can anyone help me out on this? i'd appreciate any suggestions at all.. thanks in advance!

    I was going to recommend the new thinner 60gig CZV:M (creative) or you can go with the 30gig. I've had mine for over a year now and I'm still loving it.

    Well it comes with some software from Creative that you CAN use but do not have to. If you don't install the software it will just act as a MTP.

    I'm doing it right now. In Explorer it shows as Name:Storage Media Type: Generic hierachical.

    I can drag and drop and play back from.

    Although the Creative software isn't all that bad either it works right with Windows Explorer if you choose to use it.

    However I use the latest verison of Winamp. Winamp rocks!

    Yeah, it can/does but I put a protective film over it although I would recommend the "Best Skin Ever". I also use a silicon skin from podsplus.com It allows the light to come through on the buttons and comes with a hard clear plastic screen to go over the screen. My case is black too.

    I think the case/skin cost me $20 shipped (maybe even less). Comes with two different length lanyards and a belt clip.
