Back when I was looking at mp3 players a year ago, the only ones that
appear as a storage device without having to first install special
drivers were the ipod and iriver players.  Of those, only the iriver
supports ogg.

I got an iriver (after sending back dell and creative players) and like
it, FWIW.
