Re: need help looking for mp3 WMA player

Hi Jim,

As Tor already stated: "the IHP140 or H340 is likely the best choice for
your needs. Keep in mind that to find a new one will be about the same
price as an IPod. Rockbox will not play WMA files but you can boot into the
original IRiver firmware and play them that way. Of course then you will
have no speech.

I use the IHP140 for audio books and music. It does all the things you are
asking for. I think the resume on start up feature still causes some
crashes but since I have disabled this feature I don't know for sure.
Regardless, it will still resume with an extra click of the play button.
Rockbox is very stable on this player.

Subject: need help looking for mp3 WMA player

Hi everybody, I am brand-new to this rock box lists, and I have a lot of
questions!
Let me give you some of my personal history!
I was using a Dell DJ 30 MP3 player. Until last week when it died on me.
I was using the MP3 player, to play talking books that I converted to MP3
and WMA files. I made each book into one track.

So each track was five to 10 hours long. So if I had to stop in the middle
of a book, and pick it up the next day, or an

hour later, when I started the book the next day, it would start at the
beginning of the book. So I would have to

fast-forward to the spot where I left off the day before and.
So what I am looking for is a better way of handling these books.
And I'm hoping that somebody on this list would be able to help me. I am
thinking that I could probably use a MP3 playlists

for each book and break each book up into multiple tracks. And then instead
of selecting play all tracks to go through my

books I could go through to playlists and select which book I wish to start
with. But I am thinking that I would have to use

a this rock box software to really know what I am doing.
So because I have to replace my MP3 player I am asking everyone on this list
to please let me know which MP3 players that

have 30 G or more of memory will work with the rock box software! I am not
looking for a discontinued model, or an out of

date model, or an Apple iPod. Because you paid too much for the Apple name.
I would also like to be able to place a bookmark when I turn the MP3 player
off, so when I started the next day it will pick
up in the middle of the book if possible!
I hope I explained what I am looking for. And I really hope that somebody
will be able to help me
before I spend $300 or more for a MP3 player that I can't work.
Thanks for any and all help, from A MP3 / WMA player dummy.
