Non drm/conversion "mp3 players"/portable media players
 
I've searched the net, all I need is a portable media player with 20 or more gb of capacity, no DRM, drag/drop capability ie. no conversion to some idiotic format, able to play FLAC-
Do these even exist anymore? If yes, any suggestions to what I should look for?
Cheers!

dont know about FLAC but some of the samsung players can play OGG which is rare

Not sure about FLAC or 20GB player but my Sandisk Sansa 8GB model allows me to just drag and drop my freshly ripped mp3's from my bought CD's directly to the device.

Thanks for the replies :)
Ok, OGG is fine too :)
Basically, it's enough if I can just drag and drop and mount as mass storage

most non apple players have wgat you are looking for if you dont clas MP3 as a idiotic format.

most off the shelf players mount as usb mass storage with HAL fine and you cna drag and drop MP3s to them
not so many play ogg and flac tho.
most only play MP3 (ok some play WMA too but i doubt that you would ever use that format)

Or, get a rockbox-supported player.
