>> Hi Jim,

>> As Tor already stated: "the IHP140 or H340 is likely the best choice for

>> I use the IHP140 for audio books and music. It does all the things you

>> Regardless, it will still resume with an extra click of the play button.
>> Rockbox is very stable on this 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.
