Just a small note about these players.
I have purchased a few of these over the years and found that the socket which the earplug jack goes in to often plays up after a short period of time.
You may ask, why do you buy them? My answer to this is that they are cheap and do the job for me, I just use it to play music in the car and occasionally use the headphones.
I recently bought a 8GB player (actually it was a 1GB player really, please read other people's reviews for this reason) for under £10. If I get 12 months use out of this I will be really happy. The bottom line is, you get what you pay for, in fact, when I mentioned to the seller that this player I purchased from him was actually 1GB instead of 8GB, he eventually gave me a refund of 30% of the price I paid for it.
If you have recently bought one of these types of player recently and found the memory isn't as stated in the listing, I advise you to do what I done although I couldn't guarantee that you would get the same result but it's worth a try.
I hope this is helpful to you.
