need a simple MP3 player that uses disposable batteries

Believe it or not, there is still a need for an MP3 player that uses a disposable battery. I do not always have a "current-bush" in the wilderness, and would like to find a simple. no-frills, player. I don't expect much, no DVD's or videos to play, it just needs to play some songs and have a decent screen to read the playlist. It shouldn't be an expensive investment as stuff happens outdoors, things get wet, they get dusty, etc., and low cost allows it to be replacable. I liked the SanDisk player I bought a few years ago, and the Lyra (pre-wma files) many years ago, but now cannot find anything on the market that uses disposable batteries.

Anyone have suggestions an MP3 that uses disposable batteries? I've exhausted hours and hours searching and it's very tedious as most all review/ratings lists assume you want a rechargable/USB connection and don't address this as a desirable feature.

mp3 with disposable batteries

Creative Muvo has a few nifty models. The MuVo V100 uses a triple A battery. Check the Creative website (www.creative.com) then google for the best price (amazon is hard to beat).

My son has a similar model and finds the sound great and the size convenient. It's old and beat up and he needs to tape the battery lid on the case now, but he still loves the darn thing (mainly for its size).

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
