Philips GoGEAR SD card player SA3SDR00DN SA3SDR is rated

Brought this player for audio books but is not suitable at all. You can only play books from audible with the aa file format in the audio book folder, so all your mp3 books have to go in music and there is no resume feature so everytime you turn your player off and back on it goes back to the begining of the book. Very suprised as even low cost mp3 players I have purchased have had the resume feature would not risk another philips player now as they want to tie you in to audible.

I have the SA3SDV and it's a great little player (see my review).
My son's Creative packed up so I gave him the SDV and bought this one as the SDV was out of stock, and I only use it in the car.
I downloaded my music via Windows Media Player when I went to play it some album tracks were missing or play order mixed up. I phoned the helpdesk and was told I needed to use Songbird which I did.
They played fine and sounded reasonable (with engine noise sound quality isn't an issue.)
Then I downloaded some more albums (this time some compilation albums), I go into the Music function and the album is broken down into the individual artists with some tracks still missing.
It COULD be nearly as good as the SDV if Philips ironed out a few problems. I know both are cheap but for the few £ difference the SDV is far better and well worth the money.
