The Rio Forge Sport 512MB has resume/bookmark features. I bought one about a month ago at FurureShop (Canada) but it died on me. When I brought it back, they didn't have any more in stock so I got a RCA Lyra RD32315. When I got that one home I discovered that it didn't have the resume/bookmark features. I listen mostly to 1hr - 1 1/2hr audio recordings and trying to find out where I left off was a big pain. Plus the fast forward took almost 3 minutes to go through a 1hr file. So I brought that one back an got a refund. Now I'm looking for a player with resume/bookmark.
(Rio Forge - Pros: I liked the design. I loved the headphones. They were soft rubber and I could lie down with them on and they were still comfortable. The screen was easy to view. The fast forward got faster the longer you held the button down. I could FF through a 1hr file in about 30secs. Cons: I found that the headphone jack came out too easily, resulting in dropping the player on the floor at the gym often. No voice recording.)
(RCA Lyrs Pros: I liked the voice recording option. The headphone jack wouldn't slip out even if you dropped the player. Cons: The most uncomfortable headphones I have ever worn. After 5 mins I had to take them off. Slow navigation controls. There was a delay of about 1/2 sec after you press the button before it would select the next option. The light around the controls was so bright (you could almost use it as a flashlight) that it made it hard to read the screen in the dark. No resume/bookmark feature even though they promote Audible. Display screen a little too small)
I may buy another Rio Forge if i can't find a better replacement with resume/bookmark.
