One question: Do they have anything higher than a 2 gig model that will work?
Thanks from John

    So, and not to be annoying here, is there no one player that someone can recommend that I can go buy that will work with Rockbox? Otherwise, I'll just wait til more players are supported, but since I'll be doing a lot of traveling next year especially, I wanted to get a good mp3 player I could use accessibly.

  There are no mp3 players currently sold "new" that will run Rockbox. From a recent thread,, offers "Rockbox ready" reconditioned Sansa e200 series v1 players (I just checked their site and the 2GB e250 is listed as being in stock for $30). From another more recent posting to this list, it appears that work on the v2 players is progressing and Rockbox may run on them in the future.

  If you want a player cheap and right away, I'd recommend going the route (or finding some other way to get a used or reconditioned player; I do not recall seeing anyone post the results of their experiences ordering from If you want a new player and can wait a while (I have no idea how long "a while" will be), watch the Sansa v2 progress.

  I don't pay much attention to discussions on this list about other players, so I don't know anything about their availability or the status of Rockbox on newer hardware revisions.

  For the record, I'm very happy with my Sansa e260 (v1). It's a great player and I've had no problems with it at all, but I don't use any of the accessibility functions so I can't comment on that aspect of the Sansa players.
