found it

I believe I may have found the perfect mp3 player for me:

It's the Sansa Fuze. It gets great reviews online and is so popular at Best Buy that they are actually sold out! And it holds 8gb for about $80. They are expecting a new shipment of them in by Thursday.

It appears that it actually lets you create subfolders which is what I need from an mp3 player more than anything. If for some reason if it doesn't it turns out Best Buy actually lets you return electronics even after you open them. Had I purchased my Zen mp3 player from Best Buy instead of Amazon I could have returned it when I found out it can't do subfolders. Guess what Amazon, you just lost me as a customer forever. Hello Best Buy, I will be making ALL of my electronics purchases from you from now on.


I also have this model (8gb Fuze), and recommend it :)
Once I got it I went to the sansa website, and downloaded a firmware upgrade that gives better file/folder navigation, but I got mine last year - hopefully yours comes with the newer firmware already installed.

The only drawback I've found with it for dance is that it doesn't seem to offer speeding up or slowing down the music - which is a really useful feature for ballroom practice. (However, most players don't offer that unless you throw out their factory firmware and run rockbox on them.)
