i have a cowon iaudio 7 which i really like, but the screen broke a few months ago and it's been kind of a pain using it without the screen....

frankly, i'm looking for a player that does exactly what my cowon does, if not more.... these are the players that came to my mind:

sony NWZ-S638/9: apparently best sony to date, but no ogg ( i have a couple ogg files, but i guess it wouldn't be such a big deal) and no file folder structure

meizu m6sl: really like the design, but not sure if it is compatible with the newest macs....

Sandisk fuze/clip: i like its sound but again no file structure...

ipod mini: i don't know much about this one... if it can work with folders, if it will have at least 20 hours playtime or more once i put in a flash card, new battery and rockbox (would be using LO with an amp and RE1s)

i'm also willing to try something else, maybe a teclast if i find one and it fulfills my needs, so i'm open to suggestions... thx in advance....

ONLY an ipod w/RockBox has file/folder viewing, otherwise it's ID3 tag based. The same goes for the Fuze/clip, ID3 only. The Sony has the file/folder view, but you wan't OGG support - no dice. Still, if you heard the SQ (I also have a D2, the Sony players sound even better IMO), you'd deal w/the lack of that codec's support. As for the meizu - meh!!! never used it, and I never will. Their iPhone/clone project made me hate such an unoriginal, boring company.
