Thanks Jason - after a chat with my wife, she seems to think that we
can use these insurance vouchers for other uses and that I can buy an
mp3 player from any outlet I want (aren't wives good sometimes?)

So, I'm currently looking around for a iriver h10 20Gb version, which
is the closest I can get to my h320, but it looks like it lacks native
ogg support. Also, the prospect of proprietry USB cable is annoying.
Boy, this is turning into real grief for my h320!

I guess I'll have to find a reconditioned h10 or a used one, which is
a pita, but better I get a player I like than one which is uselessly
locked away from my Operating system and has no tuner.

Thanks again.

Adam
