This is the best audiobook player. I also have an Ipod 80GB Classic and had a Zen Vision M. It leaves both for dead.
- superb sound quality.
- excellent bookmark function- 256 bookmarks. It returns to the bookmark and continues to the follwing tracks (unlike Zen which just stops, as do many other players, and windows mobile players).
- the touch screen is very nifty and the smart menus pop up nicely. Navigation quickly became intuitive.
- the standard folder structure makes loading books and tracks very simple. I am over Itunes and do not miss it.
- 16GB or 8GB or 4GB of internal memory, then an SD slot which means you can have as many SD cards as you want. bookmarks work on the current SD card no worries.
- excellent for music albums.
- the video function works well when I test it, although I am not interested in using it routinely.

If you're looking for the best portable audiobook player, you've found it. But if you just want to listen to audiobooks on your computer get ViddyMP3 for free. Or if you want to tinker get Rockbox free software for various portable players. I think the D2 is great for music too as its sound is clearly superior to Ipod and Zen to even my untrained ear.

It does not do playlists, but really who needs them? I mainly used to use them to work around Itunes bugs.(maybe I like compilation albums, but I can just compile a folder of MP3's any way I like).

Wishlist- on the fly erase & click for more details on the bookmarks (but still the best for bookmarks), playlists (OK already).

Tips- use the stylus supplied for navigating the touch screen.
- when you first ever turn it on, be careful as the first thing you do is set language and I accidentally clicked Korean!!

I have many Cowon products. To name a few. The D2+ and a D2 16gb. I have
an A7 16gb and a A7 8gb. Lastly, I have 3 8 gb U5's. I will cut right to the chase! For sound and other on-board excessories (radio reception, battery life, expansion capability and picture capability) you can do all the searching and exploring you want, Cowon blows all other MP3 players totally away. Lastly, it is so easy to drag and drop files and folders!

Ok! Here comes what is completley horrible concerning Cowon's Marketing!

1. The Manual has just got to go and be rewritten in order a person can
see the directions and understand them.

2. Customer Service might as well be on Mars, they are unreachable by e-mail or by phone.

The Cowon D2+ has been a pleasant surprise. The options for sound control and enhancement alone place it far above Ipods, Zunes and other devices I've tried. BBE enhancement, reverb, and several others color your sound just the way you like it. The interface is very good, touch screen controls are responsive. The main reason for buying this device is SOUND QUALITY. It is absolutely FANTASTIC. I'm a guitar player, so I'm super anal about sound quality. I need to hear every bend, trill, etc. Let's face it- converting mp3 to aac is going from one lossy format to another, which degrades quality. The ability to play FLAC, OGG LOSSLESS formats is a great feature. Being able to expand memory with an SD card is a HUGE plus. (Take that Ipod.) I own an Itouch, but I do *not* use it for music. The small size of the unit belies the features packed into it. Granted I don't use all of them, like the text viewer, but being able to play flash games when you're bored is yet another cool feature. Forget about all of that, though. Buy it for the SOUND QUALITY! Get a good set of earbuds and you'll love this device. I've used the Jetaudio media player program for years, so I was no stranger to the Cowon company. If you are a serious audiophile, Cowon hit a home run with this device. I only hope they maintain their high standards in future devices, as I would not hesitate to buy their devices again.

...And it won't bloody well play my Audible files 0- out of the box...

I would like to love this player. I could totally deal with the almost entirely useless manual, the lousy support site and the somewhat complicated navigation, if only I could play my audible books. The sound on this thing is absolutely incredible. I am not an audiophile, but this player could totally turn me into one.

Unfortunately, the primary use I make of an mp3 player, is listening to audiobooks. And while the bulk of my collection consists of mp3 audiobooks, I also have several from Audible. I am not terribly keen on the idea of converting Audible books to DRM free mp3, because the only conversion software that will convert has to convert in real time - which means that a 27 hour audiobook takes 27 hours to convert. Besides which, I really like the sync to my audible manager, which allows me to listen to the books on both my computer and player, while keeping my place in the book.

After wandering through several google hits, I finally found a forum that was able to explain how to fix the problem. Apparently what you need to do is format the drive with windows and then install the latest firmware update ([...]). I am glad that I don't have to send this player back - at the same time this player is not terribly user friendly right off the bat. There are no indications on Cowon's website that you need to format the drive before installing the firmware update, nor are there any indications of the problems with Audible. And the instruction manual is a joke - I was only able to figure the player out through trial and error.

Finally, a hint for those who will be using this player for audiobooks in mp3 format - create a whole new folder to throw onto the root directory.
