The right side of the player is lined with several multipurpose buttons. Figuring out what some of them do in various menus may take some time.

You can use the included cradle to prop the 404 camcorder up while charging and syncing. It's also quite useful for video viewing, because the player doesn't have a built-in kickstand.
