I have been happily using a 5Gb Rio Carbon but now I need more capacity, the logical successor would be the Rio Karma but I'm looking for 40Gb upwards and also its not available new anymore.
My major criteria:
I don't want have to use specific software to upload MP3s (Yes, I'm looking at you, iTunes!) - the Rio Carbon shows up as an external hard drive in Windows and all the files can be dragged, dropped and deleted using Explorer - this makes me happy.
I only need to play MP3 and WMA.
Battery life - 20 hours would be nice, like the Carbon.
USB 2 (or faster!).
I don't care about:
Photos, video, radios, elaborate GUIs, coloured cases, white headphones, touch screens or fancy ad campaigns.
