I dropped my Ipod on the subway today on the way home from work and now, it won't turn on. I guess the shock damaged the hard drive. I'm hoping to find a good, cheap MP3 player with rechargeable batteries that are replaceable.

I'm hoping not to spend too much. No more than $60. And I'm hoping to get one with solid state memory as opposed to hard drive. And 8GB should suffice. I don't have that many songs.

So, any recommendations??

Thanks!

All I can think off is a Sony Walkman or a Sansa player. Honestly I thought that beyond iPods and Sony the mp3 player market died.

Just get a used android phone off ebay or amazon.com and just use it unactivated. most have replaceable batteries and they are the same price as a standalone and can do more.

iPod Nano. Or a cellphone.
Oh, missed the part about the rechargeable batteries.
iPod Nanos do last a very long time on a charge though, well depending how much you use the screen having the light on.

The media player app I use for my phone, BTW is PowerAmp and it's worth the 5 bucks or so.

I was doing endless amount of research and it looks like there is none out there that has replaceable batteries, which is ridiculous IMHO. So, I will just make do with a regular MP3 player with built-in battery. So, what about the SanDisk Sansa Fuze+? Anyone own this?

Sansa brand is good all around.

This has user replaceable battery and is backed by good music and is a good brand as well.

Careful though version 5.0 ( No idea why samsung chose to name it's players 1,2,3,4,5) doesn't have swappable battery, so i've included two links, check them, check the comments as well before making up your mind.

In all honestly, I've had my creative zen vision:m since 2006, no issues at all with battery life, maybe it's at 80% of what it used to be. Then my creative xfi2, since 2009 and battery still going strong. The issue with lithium batteries is that they must never be fully discharged except once a month to recalibrate.

Ok, I bought that Sansa Fuze+ Player. I've had it for two days and each day it failed to start up successfully. I had to do a hard reset to get things back to normal. Do the Sansa players freeze this often?

My old Ipod did freeze sometimes but only a few times in the 7 years I had it. This Sansa player freezed twice in two days. Not sure if this is something I should just accept or if I should return it. I hate to return because I just recently returned a merchandise to Amazon a couple of weeks ago. I would hate to return again and give myself a bad record over there. Amazon is known for monitoring these things as they don't want people abusing their return policy.
