I decided to go for one of those memory stick that can also play music files.



But which one ?



I'm willing to spend $100-200 including headphone and rechargable batteries.



Do you have some tips for me?

I went for the Oracom model after reading a couple of reviews. That was a couple of months ago though so there may be some better toys available now.

Are you talking about Sony's MemoryStick? Those MP3 players tend to be a bit to the pricey end - I only know of one, and it's Sony's running at around $300. Is there a reason you want MemoryStick over, say, SD Card?



If you just mean you want an MP3 player with SD or MMC card, I have the Rio Cali Sport and I'm very happy with it. There are a number of good players out there, though, and I recommend you make liberal use of pricegrabber.com and CNet.com

I need something with usb connection to move the 500mb random stuff I got on the office computer. (and I'm not going to transfer that on floppy's)



I also want something like a walkman, so that's how I got the idea.

500MB file transport + MP3 player in ONE device for less that $200 might be a push. A few thoughts: 512 MB JumpDrive for about $125 - I use one of these attached to my backpack to transport between school and home. That doesn't get you music, but I think that you've gotta spend a little more to get 500MB of data and music on one device, but for the money that's a really good option.

Thanks for your advice.



It made me think about it again and I decided to spoil myself and bought and Iriver iHp120.



It's got a 20Gb disk, an Fm radio and a voice recorder, and is connected to the pc over usb 2.0



Downside is that it came with a leather cover



This leather cover was in the box, not on the display and it wasn't mentioned on the website or the reviews
