I bought this thing a while back and thought I'd give everyone an
update on how this thing is working out.
The player holds about 68 MP3's@128kbps on the 256 mb Jump drive.
I bought some AAA Duracell NiMH rechargeable 750 mAh
batteries the other day for the player (I hate triple A's) and so far
today I had this MP3 player running since 9 a.m. this morning
without the need to swap the batteries. (About 5 hours so far)
I bought the batteries at a discount at Staples.
(The package had been opened, So I asked for $5.00 off and I got it)
I've had the volumne at about 14 (The scale is to 20)
The head phones that I have been using are some Sanyo behind
the head band type light weights, They have a fair sound to
them, But lack more bass.
At first I was having problems with the songs because the player
kept stalling on songs that had been renamed by the people I
got the songs from, I'm not completely sure why the songs
wouldn't play yet, I'm still fiddling around with the quality, ID
tags and name sizes that the songs should be.
There doesn't seem to be much about instructions about how to
put songs on this thing, Like should the songs be in folders?
I've tried different combinations and even formatted the flash
drive...Whoa...That was a mistake, I eventually figured out that
the flash card has to be formatted in a DOS format to work.
I went looking for a carrying case for this drive today since Lexar
doesn't include anything, I decided to buy a cell phone belt type
case made by Lowepro, The player fits perfect and even has
room for spare batteries, Also since it doesn't have a zippered
cover on it the headphone cord can easily snake under the velcro
In any case...I'm still having fun with this thing,
It sure makes subway rides less boring.
