the continuing mp3 player saga

I'm past the point of being charitable to the cheap DSE MP3 player just because it's cheap. Over the last two days it has twice spontaneously rebooted while playing audio, it has become confused during navigation among folders and reset itself to the first track in the first folder, it nearly caused me to miss my bus this morning because it was intolerably slow while copying some tracks to it, it eaten up its first battery, and annoyed me every time I turned it on by the lack of a pause function. What a piece of junk.

So, I picked up a Creative Zen Stone Plus 2GB. So far, this player seems great. It has a functional pause, a cute little OLED display, small size and light weight, a built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery, an FM tuner, and a user interface that isn't slow.
