Which one?

Hello. I'm looking for a 5 GB MP3 player, but am having troubles deciding. Quite frankly I don't know much about these things, and would appreciate it if someone could tell me a good one to chose. I'm looking for something cheap, but functional.

maybe this one

In reply to: Which one?

try the dell mini. it is a 5gb and comes w/ dell musicmatch software which is easy to use. i have an older dell but they are pretty much the same- the mini is smaller. it is $200 from the dell site, but doesnt really have any extra features

start by researching

personally, i'd stay away from players that are crippled with DRM restrictions (Sony, Apple, M$). Creative is generally pretty good this way.

But read up for yourself before taking suggestions from strangers Happy

Maybe Rio

In reply to: Which one?

Maybe you should think of the Rio Carbon. It's very easy to use, and the software is amazingly simple. You can get it most places online for under $150 And most stores(ie Circuit city or Best Buy)Best buy is pretty cheap. (That's where I got mine) $169 - $20.00
mail in rebate. plus at the stores you can get an extra insurance for 30.00 or less. This player plays WMA's ( Which are the most common) and it plays Audio Books from Audible. All of my file types are WMA's because I converted them from CD's to WMA's in Rio's Music Manager.

Hope this Helped
