I would just like to say thank you to everyone. You guys ask and answer very imprtant questions that i have had concerning my HD5. I have been in the market for a player for a while and I decided on the Sony. Well of coures i have cracking key pad issues. I have read many of the posts concering this issue in the UK but what about the States? If sony does make new pads will they more than likly come to the USA also? Thanks again and keep up the good work.
