what is a good mp3 player that is compatible with Linux

I'm planning to buy an mp3 player and recently through the threads I have learned that not all players are compatible with Linux. All I need is 1gb of memory. What mp3 players do you use and if possible post a link to information about it so I can view its details and maybe purchase the same kind.

Anyone tried Sandisk audioplayer? If yes what do you think about it?

Thanks in advance!

Surely it would be best to just get one which is UMS compatible, then you will just be able to mount it directly as a drive (providing you have the correct module for your USB controller and USB mass storage loaded/compiled into the kernel) rather than having to use a specific program to do the transfers.

Some good UMS-capable flash players are the iRiver iFP series and the Creative Zen Nano Plus (formerly the Muvo Micro series).
