Be sure that you buy a wma-file compatible player. Not only for mp3.

Well, the speakers are there and I have got an Oregon Scientific waterproof MP3 player, now all I need is a small amp (seariders suck for console space) and some phono sockets and leads.
I will let you know the results when I get around to hooking it all together.

Does the itunes software supplied with an ipod allow you to easily convert wma's into mp3s.....If not I know there is other software out there that will - is this likely to be a terribly long process (converting 17gb of wmas that is)

It won't be long before laptops wont have hard drives - about time - I am sure even Eddison wouldn't be shocked by the technology inside them - spinning disks and magentic heads - I ask you!!!!

100gb flash ram is already out!!!
