My niece gave me her old one years ago and I've never used it. Went on vacation to the Adirondaks last week(can't wait to return!) and I knew the cabin had an ipod dock so I loaded some tunes and took it with me. Could not get a single song to play. Either it would run thru a preview of the folder and at the end just do nothing or I could get a song to look like it's going to play but again nothing happened. Time to get a new player for the next trip or am I just that dumb?I guess I should add that yes, I did press the play button. the button would not put the song into play or pause so I'm guessing a hardware problem?
