Hiya, I got my mp3 player from ebay for about £20 its brand new, and has 256mb, displays lyrics, voice recording ect, me thinks i got a good deal, ive had it for about 6 months.

So maybe worth checking ebay.

otherwise click here

I wouldn't recommend buying from say PCworld as there prices are crap.(£40 for 64mb)

My sister got hers from click here (£40 for 128mb) and shes had it since christmas and is very pleased with it.she treats it like its her best buddy.

Goodluck in your search.

They are selling, 128mb for £20. Has a built in mic for voice recording, could be handy?

Looked at them the other day, quite a nice feel to them....

Didn't buy one as my mobile doubles as an mp3 player otherwise I would have.

Can I record CDs to my PC and download them onto an mp3 player.

Can I record CDs to my PC and download them onto an mp3 player.

Yup sure can. You could use Windows media player to copy the files from a CD to Hard disc then simply drag and drop them to the mp3 player ( they are usually WMA files and will play OK ) Do this for my daughter all the time . Also use Nero Wave Editor to shrink the files to about half their size and so can get loads more onto the player

Just download audiograbber free and lame also free insert lame into audiograbber. After this open audiograbber draw in your WAV files then convert to MP3 and load into MP3 player whole CD's onto player.
