Need a small player for running/working out

I've been looking around for a small mp3 player for around or under $100. It only needs to be able to play MP3s. Drag and drop functionality would be great. Doesn't need to work with any sort of subscription service (I only use MP3s). I have been looking at the iAudio U2, but I hear it maxes out at 240 files for the 1GB and 600 for the 2GB. And I've heard that the shuffle's clip can get bent out of shape, and a screen would be nice :).

So something sturdy, armband available(or included), good audio quality, and drag and drop functionality. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Happy

Try creative. The one I'd recomend is the Zen V plus. Its one of their newer players. Comes in 1, 2, 4, and 8gigs. Reviews are great on it, and it has the "drag and drop" feature you are looking for. Its also playsforsure. http://reviews.cnet.com/Creative_Zen_V_1GB_black/4505-6490_7-31959323.html?tag=pdtl-list

You can definately pick up one of these for around $100. I've never owned one in particular, but I used to own a little creative zen nano and I loved it. If that little thing sounded good, the zen v plus should blow it away.
