Exercise w/ Microdrive MP3 Players

by Powlaz / January 19, 2006 9:49 AM PST

I think that's what it all comes down to. I need an MP3 player that
1. has actually tested well for good sound (first and foremost)
2. can be used as portable storage -- meaning that it is seen as a USB Storage Drive when it's hooked up to a PC
3. can handle a little bouncing around when I'm running.

I need the capacity that comes with the Microdrive players. Can I run with one in my pocket w/out it skipping? Do they make armbands for this size player?

Thanks for the help!

Flash is the way to go for exercising, and the largest plach player is 6gb, it also plays videos and has all features (radio and voice record) The downside is you'll have to wait untill march until you can get one. It;s the Sandisk Sansa e200. Now ive never had a sandisk but ive heard there of good quality

Thanks for the help. Heard a rumor that they'll be something exciting coming from MacWorld. Going to hold out one way or another it seems.

The Sandisk Sansa 4GB model. Too bad about this past year's MAC World. Might go with the Sirius S50. I appreciate the help.

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?
