AA / AAA powered video mp3 player

by Thayen / March 23, 2008 1:45 PM PDT

I'm looking for a video mp3 player for my son. He's very big into the outdoors and such and so I'd like it to be AA or AAA powered, as he's not always near a computer to charge it back up. I'd prefer something with a large storage capacity, though something with SD or similar slots would work as well. Anything someone can point me in the direction of would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

AA / AAA powered video mp3 players are limited.

Most video mp3 players out in the market have internal batteries. So it would be really hard to a video mp3 that is an AA or AAA powered. plus most mp3's that are powered with AA/AAA have lower storage around 1-4 Gb.
Sorry but there isn't one out there.

Would you believe I got an AAA MP3 player today. I didn't exactly purchase it, it came with a Drill which my husband bought. This little guy doesn't even have a brand name, but it does have a number DP-F165 and on the box it reads, MPC Player Reproductor MP3. I've never studied MP3 players, was never interested.

I'm on a Mac, and the instructions are, of course, for PCs. The tiny CD has the disk drivers, I guess, as they are.exe files.

When I Googled the part number, the few choices that came up were in French. I have downloaded some MP4 files from iTunes, but when I use QT Pro, it won't allow me export them into MP3. I have a few songs that are MP3, but these won't copy into the "No Name" hard drive produced by the DP-F165 which is, of course, USB.

Would anyone have an idea how I might copy a song onto this player?

I'm pretty savvy when it comes to my Mac, but totally a newbee on this new toy.

Is this the Mp3?

If it is there is more info on their website.

It might be possible that this Mp3 might be outdated since there was no info on the MP3 in their website. It also might be possible that this might be incompatible to Mac Computers. Mp4 might be also incompatible with this mp3.

This also could be a Chinese-bootlegged product since this company is not well-known.

Does this have a colour screen for videos could be played?
Have u tried just click and drag the Mp3 file directly to the Mp3
Player' hard drive?

That looks like the same player. Perhaps it's not French, looks more like Spanish, but guess it doesn't matter. It came with a Hitachi drill, suppose to be worth $40.00. I have a feeling you are correct on all your assumptions. Perhaps the ear phones work (ha).

Thanks for replying to my question. Think I'll have one of my PC friends play around with it. Truth be known, I can't imagine myself walking around listening to music: chewing gum and walking are about about as much as I want to tackle.

i recently bought a hitachi drill also...

i think it only reads wma and mp3 files

no need to load the software
the thing operates about like a flash drive
plug it into a usb port and use windows explorer (or similar) to put some music on it

operating the unit is fairly self-explanatory with one tip: push the thumbwheel to access the menu, that's right, the thumbwheel has three positions, turn left, turn right, or push in.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
