Works OK with a full battery,
I got one of these off of eBay, and I've discovered why everyone else is having problems.
The unit has no way to indicate low battery. When the battery is low, it will attach/detach from the computer repeatedly, or reboot while playing, or show noise in the output.
Transferring files from the computer to the unit drains the battery, even though the unit is plugged into the computer. Moving lots of music onto the device will drain the battery in an hour or two - filling a 4GB card can easily take this long.
Completely charge the battery *first* by leaving it plugged into the computer (and turned off) overnight.
Then only move 3 or 4 albums at a time into the unit, letting the unit charge the battery between times. Yes, this is a pain.
Knowing this, I've had no further problems with the unit. It seems to work fine.

can u add the music to the micro sd card first? and then insert it? it would seem like this way, you won't have to charge between album transfers.
