View Full Version : Need a new portable music player

Hi, my ipod recently broke and I have been looking at buying a new portable music player. My old ipod was rockboxed, I loved it. I wanted to buy a sansa and put rockbox on that but turns out that it wont work on the v2 sansas. What portable player would you recommend I get? It should be able to work with linux and play vorbis files. I looked at the iaudio7 but the lack of playlists is a real downside.
EDIT: I saw my friends Zune today and it looks pretty nice, apparently it plays oggs as well. can anyone confirm that it does and that I can mount the drive on linux to sync or just copy my songs onto it? thanks
EDIT2: has anyone tried this: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8447549&productCategoryId=abcat0201010&type=product&tab=7&id=1183766842388#productdetail ?
