Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value For Money The person who wrote the review saying you have to skip through one song at a time did cause some concerns before I bought one but thought this cannot be right and sure enough you can get to the Folders and select an album so it is just a case of the other reviewer not working it out. I agree though the menu systems could be easier to use. The other great thing is it is 8gb and is expandable with the micro SD slot. Sound quality is good so only time will tell if it is durable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from For the money 1 star Pros: -Good quality sound -Goes nice and loud Cons: -Button are very frustrating to push(very) -No built in software. Your literally searching through like a memory card. (no artists,genre etc) -Very slow fast forward and even slower rewind -Doesn't play many file types -Trying to replay the track will play the previous track -you have to pause a track to choose another -ITS NOT 8 HOURS PLAYBACK, try 4 -the display stopped working after one month.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I have had it over a year now, no problems with it, great player, the clip holds well, I find the volume is good enough to cover up the loud gym music. :) 4 star only as the "button" for volume/ menu could be a tad bit wider and the menu could be simpler. Once you get used to it is ok.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from how do you create folders? Help! can't work out how to set up folders so music is all jumbled across albums. Can anyone help? So far v hard to get it to work. Not easy to upload music, buttons not intuitive at all and instruction book silent about folders but I can see they exist on the display just can't sort music into them... Is there a manual anywhere?

How do I load mp3 files onto it? That's not mentioned at all anywhere in the manual. When I plugged it into my pc, file explorer says 'empty'. No files on it, no folders, no operating system, no nothing. Does it work?

Asked by: endUser
The only thing that should be on the player is the audio file you want to listen to. The operating system and player are stored on a chip in the electronics of the device. Try copying some mp3 files onto it.

Hi, When you've got lots of albums on the player can you search for different music/albums or do you just have to play in the order it comes? I understand I can use shuffle facility so that's good. Thank you.
