I have been a long time user of Sandisk products. However, I have been dissapointed in certain features of the new Sport Version and Jam version. First, I have found that each of these versions have been cutting off the last 2-3 minutes of audio on all of the audible books that I have downloaded. This did not happen on the previous versions of clip players. Secondly, for these same two players, there is a long lag time before the playback responds when fast forwarding, skipping forward or backward between chapters, or pausing the player. This is very frustrating, the response time was very quick in the earlier versions of sandisk Mp3 products (E series, Fuze, clip, clip+).
Overall, I have become resigned to some of the changes that have occurred with the new firmware, like not being able to download DRM protected .wma files from Overdrive. But when the end of a book gets cut off and I have to download the book to my phone to hear the last couple of minutes of book, it gets old.
