So it looks like the Shaker only plays MP3 files? Why? Is it a more expensive technology to play WMA/protected WMA files? I think kids would really like to listen to audiobooks downloaded from the library on their Shakers.
Otherwise, this is a fun & well-priced MP3 player for children I would definitely recommend to anyone. My 7 year old absolutely loves it. She loves the speakers & dual earphone jacks to share w/a friend. Loading the MP3 files was a snap using Windows XP Explorer.
Before I try fiddling, I’d like to ask: will the Shaker share the USB cable with the Sansa e260? My 13 year old has the 4GB e260.
