It's getting hard to find such. I think the old Zen units might do this. See what's in the under 50 buck list at
Looking for a simple mp3 player for my Mom's audio bible. We were using an older Dell 5GB unit, but they are obsolete and keep dying. Needs to be at least 5GB. Needs to be able to load a large playlist (the whole bible) fairly quickly. The playlist consists of over 1000 songs.
I bought an RCA mp3 player at Target, and finally got the files on it and made a playlist, but when you turn it on it takes several minutes to load the playlist. The Dell loaded it almost instantly.
I don't need anything fancy (i.e. video capabilities), just looking for a plain and simple mp3 player. It just needs to be able to handle the large playlist.
Any ideas on what player I should get?
