MP3 player

by john1000001 / July 1, 2008 1:25 AM PDT

I bought a Zune after my Creative Zen's screen died. With the Zen I could take my MP3 folder full of just 80's music and put it on the Zen. When I wanted to make a playlist I went into the 80's folder and pulled songs from just that folder. I can't do that with the Zune. I have quite a few MP3's and don't want to sort through 3,500 songs every time I want to make a playlist. In other words, the Zune lumps all the songs into one list. Is there a way around this? I took the Zune back and am searching for a new player. Are there different filing systems? If so what should I be looking for?

If you are thinking about buying an MP3 player you should do this check list:
• Will the player come with power charger/adapter for both line and car outlet ?
• Does the managing sw allow you to use the player while connected to the PC USB port for charging?
• May you chose wheater to register the sw or not without risking it locking your PC?
• Will the player put off the display while listening songs in order to save battery?
• Are the buttons clearly and individually activated with normal adult fingers without getting into wrong button/operations.
• Is the menu clear and does the display allow enough characters in order to get a complete information screen about a song.?
• Is the display window scratch resistant and coated against glare/refletion?
• Will the player come with MP3 conversion software?
• Will the player read bmp, gif, tif, jpg, jpeg image/photo files?
• Will the player read mp3, mp4, ogg, wma song files?
• Does it manage the photo files on SD memory card, rotating and zooming, without the need to copy them into the internal memory?
• Does it play DivX, Xvid, Mpg, Mov, Qt, Flv, Swf, Avi movie files?
• Does it read text (.txt) or any other textual file?
• Is really managing SD card as the internal memory in order to give a real and unlimited expandibility?
• When playing a song or a movie on SD card, will it allow a correct resume after had put it off and back on?
• Does it allow drag&drop or you must install managing software that decides what you must do?
• Does it pause and resume MP3 playing on SD card without blasts and hisses?
• Does it allow you to copy/transfer specific photo/music/video files or does it obliges you to copy the whole SD and just if it is less than free internal memory? (sounds strange.. isn’t it? Well, check it)!)
• After had transferred files from SD to internal memory, does it allow you to delete some/all the files? (think about personal/private files you won’t live on friend’s player…)
• Does it clearly display MP3 bit-rate and tag info of MP3 files on both internal or SD memory?
• Can it record from the FM radio?
• Is the FM radio sensitive and selective enough and able to display RDS data?
• How long will the battery last when… playing songs, playing movies, standing-by, staying off (will it truly go off?) ?
• Are the included hear-phones good enough?
• Is the documentation rich and clear?
• Will it work with Linux?
