The sound on the sansa is wonderful. It is much better than the original firmware, and can be tweaked extensively. To copy music onto either the internal flash memory or a card, I hold down the left arrow of the wheel, and the sansa's original firmware boots up. This allows the player to be seen as a usb device, like it would normally. Making sure, of course, that to begin with, the player is in msc mode, instead of mtp.
  it also charges with the sansa base station, and the speaker dock made by alech, with rockbox. The e280 is indeed supported, and works flawlessly. I can't wait to try out a 4gb micro sd, but have to acquire one first.

Oh, wow, this is awesome to hear. I did stop looking for a sansa some
weeks ago, because of this missing feature. But now it does become very
interesting again.

But now I have some questions regarding the sansa:

* "Rockbox does support the e200 series." Does this mean, that e.g. the
e280 is supported, too? (Then I would change the description on the web
page to e2x0 series!)

* Can you recommend the sansa player? Is the sound ok? Are there some
drawbacks that one should know about?

* How do I copy music files on it (onto the internal flash ram) if the
usb handler is not yet working? Is there a good chance that it will be
supported one day?

Are there any other differences than memory size and included fm-card
between these players:

e250 2GB
e250 FM 2GB
e260 4GB
e260 FM 4GB
e270 6GB
e280 8GB
e280 FM 8GB

I think the e260 FM 4GB has the best cost/performance ratio.

Or is it better to have a bigger internal memory size because perhaps it
requires less battery power or has faster access or something than an
additional flash card?

Thanks,
Gert
