Sandisk or iRiver

If you want something dirt cheap, get a sandisk. If you want a great radio and lots of features, go with the iriver ifp 700 series.

I got my son the little sandisk 512 MB player. He wasn't interested (preferring just to click through windows-style folders), but I'm pretty sure the included music match software does what you desire. if you spring for the $19.95 premium version (money back guarantee), it will do even more.

Cheap, holds many hours of stuff. Make the CD with what you want.
