Which 20+ GB MP3 is best for my purpose?

by jayceedee / November 19, 2005 5:45 AM PST

This is great forum, I hope somebody with more knowledge will help me pick a new MP3 player to replace the Creative Zen 20 Gig that died (headphone connector came loose, and well-intentioned relative broke something else inside trying to help me fix!)

Here's what I do with the player:
1. Listen to audio books, both ripped from CD and downloaded from library website using Overdrive Media Console.

2. Listen to music -- I don't have huge collection, and had most of it on 20 GB.

I travel a lot, and like to have everything with me, including a couple of audio books.

I'd really like to:
1. listen to FM radio

I might like to:
1. look at photos
2. run slide shows on monitor or TV (but I can do this from my laptop and why should we expect one gadget to do everything well)

I don't really care about watching videos.

I do care about replaceable battery. I am reasonably competent with inconvenient software or downloading some firmware upgrade, etc.

I use the thing a lot, and prices are coming down, so I'll buy the best one even if it costs a bit more.
Thanks for any help!
