Possible solution.... [Aug. 12th, 2003|09:38 am]
Having made that post, I meanderd over to /., and discovered this (or here). 20gb storage, does mp3 and ogg vorbis, and has ethernet!

I think I might have to buy a Rio Karma when I'm out in the states....

I might join you! Also available is the neuros at a similar price, and linux compatible. Will look at them both when over in the US.

Looks almost as good

However, current vorbis disabled mp3 (though they ought to fix it), while it has linux support it doesn't have ethernet, which ought to make syncing a doddle.

Same price though, and no 40gb version

The latest firmware beta 2.0, claims that the either .mp3 or .ogg has been fixed and you are free to mix and match. Plus the software is being written by xiph which inspires me with confidence.

Shame about the ethernet though, creative are also winning on brand name. I really need to see them and play though.

Yup. Need to find shiny shop in NY to go play....

Annoyingly, the rio karma release date seems to be slipping back towards october :(
