Portable MP3 Player

Ok, I originally posted something similar in another forum, but since this is Linux related, I think it belongs here. I'm looking to buy a Portable MP3 Player that is supported for linux too. I came across the Archos and Nomad players and noticed they have 20GB hard drives and can also be used as portable hard drives. Does anyone know if this is true, and any suggestions of a MP3 Players I should look at? Thanks.

try the compaq ipaq mini CD player, which comes with Jukebox, but i think you can download the Kjukebox for linux, for your MP3 creation. the ipaq mini CD is quite light in the weight, and full acessories, with 3 blank mini CD, 185MB each

an old but still relevant thread.

i'm thinking about buying my first real portable mp3 player. i'm not sure what features i'll be looking for, but i am sure i want it to be fully compatible with linux. i am trying to make a habit out of supporting software/hardware vendors who support my OS (linux).

after about 20 minutes searching via google, i've found mostly out-dated threads and lots of web-spam (seems like the web-spammers have been out-smarting google more and more these last couple years).

i still haven't even found a single article that addresses the general issue of portable mp3 player / linux compatibility, let alone "best of" type info.

any pointers greatly appreciated

I use a Creative zen nomad with 40gig hardrive, I access this from within linux using gnomad. It allows to put across MP3's and files. I have not tried mounting it seperately but persume that this is possible.
hope this helps.
