Default Pausing without losing your place

I have a few mp3 players. The smaller ones have an annoying habit. When you pause a track, switch off the player, then switch it back on again, they start from the beginning of the track, rather than at the point at which I paused.

This is fine with most music, but for hour long podcasts is renders the player almost completely useless. I just love pressing fast forward for minutes at a a time!

I am looking for a smaller player that will remember where it was up to when I pause and switch off. Can anyone either suggest such a player, or at least tell me what I need to ask of the sales person (they never know what I'm talking about, and rarely allow me to test the player).

(Embarrassingly, the only small player I have that does this is an i-Pod Shuffle.)

The Sansa Clip and Fuze can do what you asks. Both are great players.

Have you considered editing the files (using a music editor -- even Audacity) into manageable chunks.

Is this also the case when you turn the player off while the podcast is playing?
