Please recommend a toddler MP3 player.

My almost-2-year-old loves carrying around toys that make music. We are bored with the same 3 songs. Can MeFi parents recommend MP3 players that are toddler-tough (can be dropped, thrown and is big enough to not get lost) with big buttons (but no volume control) that have an external speaker (but maybe a headphone jack for later)? We want to load our music on it rather than buying a pre-loaded one. (Working with iTunes would be a nice plus too.) [more inside]

Does anyone know of a cheap(sub $50) MP3 player that has a wall charger.

I need to setup an mp3 player for our phone system to play recordings on hold, but i need it to have a wall charger since it will be on all the time, and there is no USB connection nearby. Does anyone know of a cheap(sub $50) player that has that functionality. It would be really nice if it had a screen and not like an ipod shuffle.

I'm looking for an MP3 player that you can treat like a USB drive. With recording capabilites.

I'm looking for an MP3 player that you can treat like a USB drive. In other words, I want to load MP3s onto it by just plugging the device into my machine and the copying files over. I do not want to use a specialized program like Itunes, and I want to use a standard USB or Firewire cable to plug the device into my computer. [more inside]

rejection hurts my mp3s

I have an iRiver h110. Some of my mp3s files behave normally in winamp and Windows Media 10, but are seemingly rejected by the H110 when I try to add them (error message from WMP is something like "may be wrong file type" but they're mp3s, which are supported). I thought that maybe it was corrupt tags and I tried rewriting them, but to no avail. [more inside]
