the iriver unit supported by rockbox are really hard to find now

yes, IPOd seem to be good alternatives. But, you have also the IAudio
x5/x5L which have been apparently discontinued by Cowon but are still
abailable on ebay though. I think it's a really good player. the x5 has
30 or 60 GB harfd drive and the x5 L has a 30 GB one and on top of that,
a 35 hours battery.
Please correct me if i'm wrong in something.
