Anything that functions as a USB mass storage device (instead of MTP or 
something else proprietary). I've been very happy using the open source 
Rockbox firmware on my mp3 player; there is a guide to the mp3 players 
it supports at

If all you want is 2 to 4GB of storage, you could get a cell phone that 
uses SD cards and supports mp3 playback; that way you have one less 
thing to carry.
