Nobody can advice as long as you don't tell your requirements for a player. Like you can't tell me what car I should buy without knowing my requirements for a car.

Don't rule out the D2. It is a nice size (about credit card size) with a great screen and superb sound.

The only sticking point is the memory.

It has 4Gb built it and I have another 4Gb SD card plugged in, giving 8Gb. With beta firmware some people are using 8gb cards and 16Gb can't be far off.

Check out the www.iAudiophile.net forums for info about the firmware. The SDHC firmware is still in Beta, so I personally wouldn't use it yet, but some people are.

Is the best on the market right now. It beats out everything else including all the Ipods. Its a little more expensive but you get what you pay for. Nothing is better at this time

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?
