    Looking for a mp3 player
    By Duo October 14, 2001, 11:01 PM

    I love my minidisc player, but I think its time to move on. I was looking at some of those 8cm CD players and regular mp3 plalyers. What I want is something that is small and that is skip free, Coz I want to use it while I work out. So what is a good cheap (I lack funds so it has to be cheap) mp3 player or 8cm CD player.

    I am sure there are people out there that have an opinion.

    Get a NOMAD 2 MG if you can afford it, get the blue one with remote about $230, or if you're poor get a NOMAD 2 C which doesnt come with betteries and headphones for only about $180.

    By Headshot Harry October 15, 2001, 03:03 PM

    The reson i gave you these two as a suggestion is because although they arent the cheapest they can play WMA's and the program you get with it allows you to encode WMA's, WMA's are good becuase they are nearly half the size of mp3's. This means that on the NOMAD MG which is 96MB you can hold 192 minutes of music on the player this is good enough for anyone. That is 3hours and 12 minutes, and you can buy a 64MB flash for $34 dollors which means you can cary around $34 cards with Two hours of songs on them, I recommend if you do buy an MP3 player you buy some sony earbud headphones.

    Obviously if your strapped for cash you wouldnt wanna spend $45 on headphones but they are incredible, they Dont bleed sound so nobody will be annoyed by your music they have incredible bass and they block sound form outside very well.

    I hope this has been more helpful then all the other replies you recieved, you guys are bloody useless theres only 150 posts on this section, you guys need to devot eless time to school and more time to spamming on these forums.

    By Duo October 15, 2001, 05:07 PM

    I was looking at those but they are out of my price range. I am really straped for cash, but I will look around and see if I can get either one of these for a cheaper price.

    I'm a big fan of my RioVolt MP3/CD player, but it has this ghetto power-save feature for mp3s, so those skip like crazy. So much for the "2 minute anti-skip". I could mountain bike for hours and not have a problem with a normal audio CD, but an mp3 cd will skip constantly.

    I don't use mine while i lift tho - my workout shorts don't have any pockets, and it'd be a major pain to carry around. Nike has a decent one that straps onto your arm, that seems like it'd be the most convienent(sp). I'm not sure how much memory it has, but for use while working out you'll only need an 1.5 hours worth, maybe 2. If you do any more, you're either uber-hardcore, or stupid.

    Edit - Fancy that, you're a mac user too? We have 7 or 8 Macs and one PC in this house. PC for games, Macs for everything else.

    Dman $70 wow thats good, nomad c is even cheaper. I guess the price i gave was wrong.

    Nomad C = Nomad - Headphones and bettery i.e. Momad C is for people who dont want bettry and headphones i.e. ME and you maybe?

    I think you should find it a bit cheaper like $60.

    Try find the Nomad II MG though tis beter but about 8/5 more expensive

    It can use those size cards? The site says it can only use 32 and 64meg. cards.

    Maybe I dont think so though. I think they are like the cd makers who say that the cd can be burned at 16x, a cd can be burned at any speed but when they made the CD-R the fastest cd burner was th 16x.

    By Headshot Harry October 18, 2001, 01:27 PM

    I'll do some more research to confirm this if you want.

    From what i can see a smartmedia flash card of any size should work. But i can find any hard evidence. If I was you and didnt want to risk it iwould just for the 64's personally I woudl get the 256 and if it didnt work then I'd send it back or buy something that does use it.

    By Headshot Harry October 26, 2001, 05:52 AM

    Hey I found out that the MG supports up to 128MB smartmedia flash cards. I will be receiving confirmation on the 256 today.

    BTW Im not in love with you its just that i want one for mine so im doing this for both of us.

    Oh yeah and i do not recommend that you get an MiniCD MP3 spinner. They have 180MB DIsks and you can get 128MB flash cards for a tincy bit more. And the bettery on them last somemuch longer.

    No one said anything. I ordered the MG a few days ago and I am just wating for it to ship. Creative is taking a long time to ship it.

    go to www.mp3shopping.com, they have a link to the Iomega HipZip Player with 2 40MB disks for 124.75 and free shipping. That is a steal! It's not like a Rio or Nomad but it's very good.

    By Headshot Harry October 26, 2001, 07:29 PM

    Just in case anyone though i was doing way to much research for you. anyway the official word is that NO 128 is in fact the largest possible. that is what the main PR guy from Creative europe said to me.

    Ok, thanks. Well my Nomand came today and it rocks. It looks and sounds great, now I just need to get something larger then 32megs.

    you said mg before so i wasnt sure. I dont know if it will take the extra memory like the mg, sorry i did the mg research ill get back to you.

    Maybe a little after the fact, but I bought an Iomega HipZip a few months ago and love it. I can use it to hold other files as well, it's like a portable 40M zip drive. It is louder than hell too. That was the main selling point. It also has built in rechargeables and only takes two hours to chatge up. The 40M discs are a lot cheaper than FM or SM. It is just a great all around toy.

    By Headshot Harry October 28, 2001, 10:37 AM

    BUt what I want to know is how would you compare a Hip ZIp to a mini disk because they seem to be pretty much the same except for data thing. How much can one disk hold? How long do batteries last? How much is a hip zip disk?

    By kpxgq October 31, 2001, 06:15 AM

    i bought that Nike 128 one when it came out for like $299 since it looked so cool... i dont use it anymore... its way to annoying to upload every day, and 128mb sucks
