Oh, let me know how you get on with the Samsung - I've heard good things about them. I've actually bought myself a Logik 2GB thing, the cheapest player in Dixons at 35 GBP for 2GB. It has the mini-usb limitation and an internal battery that I'm not sure about but it will keep me in music for now and I will keep looking for a "proper" replacement. Maybe in the January sales?
