I have a zMate MP3 player, acutally it is pictured as you come into Dane-Elec on FixYa the little white one. A battery only last maybe 2 hours tops. I have tried all brands nothing will last. I need the instructions for this player, I am wondering maybe if possibly I am not turning it off properly.

Re: Going thru batteries
How I got my zmate mp3 to work. First use a fresh right out of the package alkaline battery (buy a multi pack it eats them like fritos). Next plug in USB cord to computer. Make two subdirectory's in zmate mp3 ("Voice" should have been preinstalled). I called my second one "Audio". Copy MP3 files to audio until full. Right click on audio and select propertys. Turn off "read only" both on the directory and files within. Unhook USB cord from unit. Press and hold middle play button.
Red light flashes, Green light stays lit (this is on). Press and release, Green light flashes once per second (this is play). Press once while green light flashes for pause. Press and hold for off. Right and left button press once for skip, press and hold for fast forward or reverse.

Press the first time and you set the start point. Press it again later in the music and you set the end point and for that time on the player just plays from start point to end point and repeat it again. To remove the repaet option just press the A-B button once again. The lock button is to lock all the control buttons so that you don't accidentally press then while in the pocket. To put the music is no secret just insert the mini-usb cable in the zMATE and the computer and it should detect it as a usb drive in the next available drive letter. (if you have a network drive letter in the next available letter it will not appear and you must change the letter in the manage computer system, of course this is for windows systems)
Make sure the "lock/unlock" on side is unlocked.Use 2Gig SD card.After disconnecting from computer, turn on by holding the on/off button for a couple seconds. Then press the same button once more to start it playing.
There are several other buttons on the player. Here is what they are.
LOCK- The lock switch will make it so none of the other buttons work. This is good for when the player is in your pocket and you don't want to accidently press buttons.
