If you're saying there's some kind of plastic frame around the battery, then that sounds ok to remove, but it's not obvious from the picture. Anyway I'm glad it's working for you.

I think that wasn't such a great idea. Lithium ion batteries go bad over time, even if they're just sitting on the shelf for a few years. It's better to buy replacement batteries when you need them...

So any news/impressions/whatever about the J3 now that you've had it a few days? I don't feel likely to buy one at this point, but sort of wonder what I'm missing out on, with a D2.

I have a D2, same screen (I think) as C2/M2/D20. It's not anything to be a "fan" of but it works, if you think of the player as an audio device and the screen as a means of accessing and...
