One of the best ways to carry a lot of music with you is to use a hard drive based MP3 player. Samsung, a relative new comer in the MP3 market has just released their interpretation of the hard drive based MP3 player called the YH-925 20GB Digital Audio Player. This sleek small player holds up to 1200 hours of your favorite songs. Plus you can transfer and store digital pictures and view them on the vivid colour display.
The YH-925 player comes complete with a 'see through' Belt Clip, Earphones, USB Cable, In-Line Encoding Wire, two USB dongles, instruction manual, power cable/recharger, application CD and the player itself.
The player is cable of playing MP3, WMA and secure WMA audio files. It also can be used to view Jpeg files that you've store on it in color. Like most Hard drive based MP3 players, the unit can also be used a portable mass storage device.
The player features a built in lithium ion battery cable of providing up to 10 hours of playback. File transfer is fast thanks to the use of USB 2.0 technology.
Window XP is a must to use this player, because it uses windows media player ten to transfer songs to the player. That's too bad because there are still a lot of people who use windows 2000 and 98 still. On top of that, the way windows media player handles music you'll have to re-rip all of your music through it. It seems windows media player has some copy protection feature that scans MP3's. Another way to get music into the player with out ripping cds is to use the included napster software and buy and down load your music online. This is sort of the pc version of iPod and iTunes music store.
