I keep them all on hard disk; I have two niftp 27 GB disks on my
machine, so that has plenty of room for all my music.

The reason I want the consumer electronics I mentioned is for
*portable* use.  I'm going to burn all these mp3s back onto (way
fewer) CD-ROMs and I can cart them around with me easily.  

The consumer electronics are portable Discman like things, which play
either regular audio CDs or CD-ROMs containing mp3s.
