Well, I had bad luck with my MP3 player the other day. Somehow, the switch that turns it on and off broke (physically). Now I can't turn it on or off. It was a little Chinese MP3 player that played videos and let me read .txt files on the screen. Now I'm trying to find a new one similar to this one that I can read .txt files on as well as use full size SD cards for memory (I have too many of these to just ditch).

Anybody know of where I can get one like this cheap and will take a check for payment (no credit cards with this whole divorce thing going on)?

Sansa Clip or Fuze

Doesn't the Cowon D2 allow viewing of txt files? My old u3 did, so I think that would be a really good choice, not to mention it's known for it's supposed awesome SQ.

My big thing about the player I had was that it was to me a "cheap" ebook reader. It was small and portable, but easy to use at work. That is what I'm looking for in a replacement if I can find one affordable enough. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of cash to spend, so around $50 to $60 is the top of my range.

I don't know if you're willing, but save up a little bit more, and you could get a 2 gig D2, it would be worth it to save up. But also, if you can do w/o the txt reader, I think that the Sansa Express has a SD slot and can be had for around that price, and also it's supposed to have equally as good SQ as the Clip.
