WTD - Ultra Easy to Use MP3 player suitable for pensioner !

Little bit of a strange one here ..

We were visiting Mum last weekend and she announce that she would quite like one of these gadgets that you can listen to music and the radio on - and she knew they were called ipods !!!

However she has had a stroke so only has the use of one hand and that is a bit shaky so looking for a sensibly price mp3 player that is easy to use with the thumb only and it very intuitive to use.

she did try my ipod touch but struggled with the touch screen so maybe hardware buttons would be better.

Any ideas folks?

what have you got for sale?

as I say must be mega easy to use so no cheap ipod clones or basic small players - I cannot get to grips with such devices so Mother will have no chance.

thanks

quite small

need something hand sized - Mother can only hold and operate the device with one hand!

something along the lines of the ipod classic kind of size but not sure she could master the thumb wheel ...

thanks anyway

Having been in a very similar position to yourself may I recommend A Toshiba Gigabeat, they're really cheap now on eBay, displays album artwork, good size screens, and the navigation is all done through a '+' shaped pad. Some models have play/pause etc on the side, some have remotes on the earphones. Auctions for the 40GB versions usually end at £35-£40

Sorry Nick but have been really busy so not had chance to get back to you

should have done it yesterday when I had one of my few days at home but ended up tryiung to list looads of odds and end here!

I will take this at £37 if you can confirm two things

1. does it come with the USB cable to computer for up loading Music?
2. is that the charging base / craddle thing in the box?

I will get back to you asap but I am of to Germany again this afternoon so may not be able to reply today

cheers

Hi

It does have the USB cable
The plastic disk is described as an attachment used when connecting to the optional cradle.

Everything is supplied that it came with.

Sorry I have noticed that I had put the wrong headphones to take the photo, those are the ipod ones, you will get the original white Sony ones with two earbuds (S&L) also the headphone extension cord.
