Flash memory mp3 player with decent built-in mic?

by buergermeister / October 16, 2007 3:50 AM PDT

I am looking for flash memory mp3 player with these features:

- small enough to carry easily in a pocket
- decent built-in mic to record live music (guitar, voice, percussion, perhaps more)
- transfer easily to pc. i.e. drag and drop
- not too buggy (and not too much DRM)

I have a minidisc player, which records well with an external mic, but is bulky, and needs sonicstage to take recordings off it. I also have an old 256MB Logik mp3 player, which is so nice and convenient, but has mediocre sound quality.

What mp3 player do you recommend?

Thanks a lot.

You guys are quick! I will have a look at the sansa models then.

A big thing for me is the sound quality. I need it to be sufficiently good to record music. I know it won't be perfect in a pocket model, but not annoyingly bad, as many of them are. Anyone out there tried recording music with a Sansa? Which model is best?

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?
