Hi Rob
Thanks for the info.
Just one more question: how does one know that an ipod is a first gen ipod?
My son looked at the ipods on the net and he says it looks as if all the
ipods have touch screens which would be difficult for us to access even with
rockbox.
Regards
Fanus

Hi Listers
Can someone please recommend a flash memory mp3 player that works well with
rockbox? Preferably it must have at least 2 gb memory. What about the Sansa
c250? Wil it work with rockbox?
Regards
Fanus

Hi Fanus,
 
Yes, the Sansa c250 works well with Rockbox. You can also select from a
Sansa e200 series
(e250, e260, e270, e280), or a 1st Gen iPod nano (which has a white or black
front and chrome backing).
 
Be aware that if you see any Sansa packaging that mentions Audible audio
file support, put it back on the
shelf immediately; those are the dreaded "v2" models. These models have a
completely different chipset inside
of them which Rockbox doesn't support. Try to get a package that has no
mention of Audible file support on it.
 
Hope this helps.
