    just an inquiry...

    are there any flash-based MP3 players out there using AA batteries? (instead of AAA)

    i know this will increase the size, but i have some rechargeable AA batteries i don't use already...

    i might be in a market to purchase a cheap MP3 player for daily jogging. (~30 to 45 min.) i already own an iPod and i know i can run with one, but it might be more convenient to have a smaller one...

    Rio500, fairly old, only 64MB, uses one AA battery, and I have one if you are interested!

    It's about the size of a credit card, fairly thin, and clear teal in color. It was really nice during its time, and one of my favorite gadgets.

    hey, thanks...

    a few questions:

    1) how much would you want for it?
    2) does it play nice with a Mac/OS X?
    3) how is the battery life?
