Rio Carbon vs. Creative Zen Micro vs. IRiver H10

Hey everyone! I have been considering purchasing a MP3 player and I have come down to 3 options for a mini-harddrive player: The rio carbon, the Zen Micro, and the H10. My brother and cousin have the rio and I think it is amazing, but I would liek to maybe experience something different. I checked out the Zen Micro and the H10 at the local electronic megastore and was impressed with the H10 and its easy navigating and playing abilities, but lost in the Zen Micro menus and lists and left not overly impressed. I am sure that I will be satisfied with one of these players but which one? So what it comes down to is which one is the better buy. Please help a brother out here!!! Thanks!

Get the Carbon Pearl

I've had one for three months, and it has been awesome. The software included is extremely to use to make playlists and organize your music. Highly recommend.

Rio S35S MP3

In reply to: rio out of business

I still have my old S35S sport for running. But now that Mr. Gates has elected to upgrade to Windows Media Player V11, all the tunes that I had previously on V10 are incompatible for synching to this mp3. I even wasted my time burning CDs off of Itunes my girlfriend had bought from the Ipod store hoping I would be able to then rip these to my computer then to the Rio. No such luck. It says no drivers are compatible, need an upgrade. HELP! What should I do? I really don't want to convert to Ipod.

See if those at Rioworld have a fix.
