I'm going to start a running program and I want to take tunes with me. I'd also like it for the car to plug into my car stereo line in. I'd like to have a large capacity MP3 player so I'm considering the iPod for Windows. The iPod has everything I want in an MP3 player but NOT if it is going to skip while I run. A player that uses memory cards won't skip but the capacity is not as good as the iPod. Plus the smart media is expen$ive. Another possibility is a MiniDisc player. From what I've read the capacity per disk has gone up considerably. It is also much cheaper than the iPod. What do you runners out there use?
