whenever my FMR is dead beyond repair. i have no idea what i would upgrade to, but if rockbox gets
on more players those will definitely be the ones i look at first. rockbox isn't a requirement, so
long as the original firmware is ok, although rockbox is much prefered (4/5).

my FMR is currently broken in two ways. the F2 and F2 buttons are both broken, but still usable
with effort. the headphone jack has become loose, and although i think it would be simple enough
to fix with some soldering, i havn't yet. i've had it about 6 months. currently it isn't usable.

it currently isn't in use, except for recording, as the headphone jack is useless. i've yet to buy
a replacment and plan to fix my FMR before spending another $300 on an mp3 player.
