I recently bought the above for my son's forthcoming B'day as it was a good offer from Aria. I have been using it in the meantime to test it and to make sure that its not DOA. Research I have made suggested that it is a good piece of kit but thete are some horror stories as well. I wonder if there's anyone here with experience of this player. Would much appreciate your sharing it with me. Thanks.

I've got one, had it for about 6 months replacing an old 6 gig jukebox, and frankly think it's fantastic and I wouldn't be without it when I go away, so far I've got 199 CD's on it with still 7.5 gig to fill.As you've been using it yourself to test it and are having no problems there should be nothing to worry about at all.

One thing don't be tempted to download Creative Media Centre from Creative's site, under drivers, it mucked up my OE connection and I had to uninstall it to get my connection working again.

Thanks mikef, thats reassuring. Its playing fine but the software is a bit iffy and just wouldn't work sometimes. What do you use to transfer the files to the player if not Creative Media Centre as supplied with the player. Also I am running XP Pro and I wonder if the unsigned drivers are causing some conflicts even though creative says to ignore the massage and install anyway.
I think its a great piece of kit compared to the Ipod, pricewise and 5g more.

rickf what came with mine was Creative PLAY centre which is fine, but the downloaded Creative MEDIA centre caused the problems.
