    Re: Windows Media Player 11 beta - available to download

    I don't actually use a portable music player but have played with some. I have a 6 year old 64MB Rio500 (ahh, memories.. good old days ) and I don't use it any longer. I really have no need to listen to music on the go. If I wanted to though, I could load a few albums onto my 1GB SD card and play them on my iPAQ.

    it's great how everything (mostly) is so inter-trans-mogrificate-able (that's a word)

    SD cards wow so many people, even me, "You mean, I can use this in my mobile phone, AND my pda, AND my Pc, AND my electronic keyboard, AND my guitar effects pedal!!!"

    And many many many more.

    I generally use mine for listening to podcasts, I have my favorite music on it aswell for the car (given it's 40Gb capacity). The rest is taken up by mame + roms, Doom + random stuff for work (it's usable as a generic USB mass storage device like a thumb drive) and portable firefox.

    I use a creative zen touch, 20Gb, got it for a good price @ the time.

    since the last firmware update, it now is totally Plug & Play, before you had to install their custom browsing software and drivers onto the machine you want to use it with, but not any more!!!

    And what's also cool, is that it's not partitioned etc, so you can just stick data in the data folder, and music in the music, without having to worry about setting up partitions for each!

    Re: Windows Media Player 11 beta - available to download

    I got a Creative MuVo2 4GB - awesome machine. Havent used it since the summer tho, as I've lost my psu for recharging it hehe and it didnt have enough power left for me to USB charge it

    Also got a Muvo 256MB Slim for my g/f - but i've been using it mainly til I front the cash for the PSU for mine.

    She wants me to get her a iPod - but cant explain why lol [dont you just hate hype?]. I try explaining that its just the same as her one [depending on the model of course] and that ultimately, they are both music players but no joy

    Head >>> wall *sighs*

    Re: Windows Media Player 11 beta - available to download

    lol but no, that will mean i've wasted money lol

    Because of course, she wants the £100+ type ones, and I know that its pointless getting it for her.

    Am I right in thinking that you have to use iTunes in order to transfer music to the iPods?

    And do they support WMA?

    hehe

    If you want to by a Creative Mp3 player be quick as this company is in financial dire and may fold before Christmas.

    Re: Windows Media Player 11 beta - available to download

    Is that just the mp3 player side of the company, or the whole? I thought they had the soundcard business monopoly?

    Re: Windows Media Player 11 beta - available to download

    That’s the whole company; it is loosing money by the millions. The most successful side of its business is its mp3 player but Apple has 78% of the market Creative shares what is left with a number of suppliers. The company in desperation to make funds has decided to sue Apple over the interface used by the iPod, its estimated that this kind of action could take up to ten years to resolve and would be very costly, eventually it will financially cripple Creative as Apple have deep pockets and will hold out. The ironic thing is that most mp3 players use this similar interface so they would have been better going after a smaller company, if they won then there would be precedence for a legal case against all users and licensing for the interface would then need to be paid to Creative.
