Hi rocker,

Get the F40 model; that's a Toshiba Gigabeat F model. Toshiba has a kinda
funny way of marking the model number on their players. For instance:

MEF40S <-- (doesn't make much sense initially, right?)

The "F" in the model is actually what series it's from, the number (in this
case 40)
is the capacity of the drive, and the "S" is the color of the case; this
would mean

None of the Gigabeat S models are supported yet, so get yourself an F model
for now.
And as for the X models, those were sold more overseas than here in the U.S.,
so you
may not come across them as often.
