Don't buy the Rio 600!!! You will be forced to buy expansion packs instead of cheap Smart Media cards.
Here is the way to go.
Buy a Rio 500 on Ebay or if you can find them from places like newegg etc. A Rio 500 comes with 64 MB built in and accepts ordinary smart media cards. At first it would only accept 32 MB media cards, then it got a firware upgrade to 64MB, and then 96 MB, now there is a new firmware upgrade (a hacked one) that supporet s 128 MB cards.
So for $60-70 you can buy a Rio 500 and then for $45 more you can get a 128 MB SMC and have 196 MB of MP3 storage.
AND it's solid state! I ride my mountain bike 80 mile a week with this thing.
