This applies to the e200 series. Dunno about other models. Refurbs
are available for under $50 (or were, when I bought mine).
The sd memory expansion is microsd, so it's a very small module. The
OEM OS doesn't support a capacity greater than 2 GB, but AFAIK Rockbox
has no limitation (I'm using an 8 GB module).

There are some inexpensive 3rd party FM xmitter devices available
also, which just connect to the phone jack.
