Hello,

I am looking for a new player which has replaceable batteries preferably AA or AAA and an sd slot. I currently have the Treckstor Ibeat extension which can use 8gb sd cards. Problem is that some of the buttons are becoming hard to use and the player dont sound to good with my new head phones philips she9850 (some buzzing and noise on changing tracks)

Anyone know of any such players? I have not been able to find any but have been considering getting a cheap mobile phone with mp3 playback but have no idea what they would sound like.

Thanks
Tom

The only player I know that uses a full size SD slot is the Witness Plus from C. Crane. It has a replaceable lithium battery.

The major brand for players with memory slots is Sansa, and all are microSD. The cards are cheap enough that I wouldn't worry a lot about losing the use of an 8 gb SD card you already have. You might find an older one on ebay that uses AAA cells, but I don't think any of those have card slots.

I think part of the reason manufacturers have gone to sealed batteries is that they don't WANT you to have a player that will last a long time. Come back and buy a new one in a couple of years. dry.gif
