Subject: Getting a new player - anyone have a suggestion

Getting a new player - anyone have a suggestion

OK, I know there is a list on the site, telling which players are supported by RB. But it doesn't tell which functions the players offers, or what features they hold. That's why I hope someone could give me a kick in the right direction. I am blind, and have been using my good old Archos recorder til now. Unfortunately, it has stopped charging, and I am on the search for a modern player. So, here is a list of some of my wishes. Is there any of the supported players that gives most - or even all - of these features? Thanks, listers!

- The capability of recording
- The capability of reading/writing SD card (or any other memory card)
- Playing folders, even on a SD card
- Preferably USB 2.0 connection
- Line-in, and Mic-in (at least build-in mic, but a mic-in would be perfect), maybe even some kind of digital-in/out (optical/coaxial)
- Buttons. I hate fields that needs to be pressed, and menu wheels. If ever possible to void ithat kind of things, and get good old keys/buttons YEEBEE!
- If it has an internal hard disk, in addition to the SD card, or an Internal memory, that is even a bonus!
- any suggestions - apart from EBay - where to get hold of it?

All feedback is welcome!
