Re: good suggestions for accessible mp3 players?
the iriver unit supported by rockbox are really hard to find now
yes, IPOd seem to be good alternatives. But, you have also the IAudio
x5/x5L which have been apparently discontinued by Cowon but are still
abailable on ebay though. I think it's a really good player. the x5 has
30 or 60 GB harfd drive and the x5 L has a 30 GB one and on top of that,
a 35 hours battery.
Please correct me if i'm wrong in something.
