"Not Good for Audio Book Downloads"2.5 starson by audiobookguy
Pros: Cheap, small, great sound
Cons: Problems with large audio book tracks
Summary: I've had this for a month and love it for books that I rip from CDs. I use it several hours a days while working out, driving, walking, etc. However, I often download books from public library sites and it doesn't work so well with them. On long book tracks (45-75 minutes), it won't start up where you turn it off. It displays the correct location (minutes:seconds) but always plays from the beginning of the track. It then won't fast forward for more than 10 minutes of a track before skiping to the next track. Seems like a software bug but Sansa support says "it doesn't bookmark files". Huh? it sure seems like it's trying to. If this function worked I'd give it a 10 but have to say 5 for now for audio book listeners.Updated
Sansa upgraded the software and I've been using it for audio downloads for three months without a problem. They also fixed the problems with fastfowarding and remembering its location when turned off. A perfect player for audiobooks at a great price.
