I just got something awesome from the makers of Creative sound cards for PC. It's called a MUVO V100. It's a 2 gig flash drive as described above, that is also a killer MP3 player and voice recorder. Here is more from the Creative website:
Easy to use MP3 player with lyric display, playback options, voice recorder and direct USB connection
Plug your MuVo into the computer USB port and simply drag and drop your music or files directly into your MuVo - no cables needed!
Personalize Your Music
The high-resolution backlit LCD display allows you to see what's playing - easily find your special song! If you like extra bass with your music, use the 5-band equalizer settings to adjust the intensity level. Plus, choose how you want to listen to your music! Scroll through the playback options and select shuffle playback or play your music in the order you like it.
Take it Everywhere
If you're having a party or enjoying time alone, listen to your music library by connecting your MuVo to your home stereo system. When you're out on the road, carry your files to and from meetings or classes.
This tiny, portable device requires no cables and allows you to directly connect to a PC. With a replaceable AAA battery and skip free playback enjoy your music everywhere you go.
Capture Your Thoughts
The built-in microphone records 125 hours of high quality voice recording. It's perfect for capturing ideas and saving quick reminders anytime - anywhere. Plus, record lectures, transfer them onto your laptop and slow down the voice for more detailed note taking.
Here's the freakish part. Walmart has them for under $40.00 Amernican! You can put any kind of file on this unit. Video, text, music, whatever, and use it to transfer the files to another PC, or use as a great sounding MP3 player.
