Because your a pirate! Or a potential one. Bend over and prepare thyself for an extended butt reaming!Why the hell can't software work this easily? What sort of god-forsaken netherworld are we in for with HDMI?
It's my understanding that all of the Sansas support drag-n-drop as well as syncing via WMP. Page 9 of the manual for the c100 series (pdf) seems to confirm this.Looking at a SanDisk Sansa c150 2 GB MP3 Player for my son's 10th.
It mentions it's PlaysForSure compatible. Does it still allow dragging and dropping of mp3s via Explorer?
Thanks Fushigi. Ended up going with a 1GB Sansa c240. About $46, has the FM tuner and voice recording. Single AAA battery. Certainly hard to beat value wise when compared to the products with the "Apple tax" on it. Of course now the youngest is jealous and wants one as wellIt's my understanding that all of the Sansas support drag-n-drop as well as syncing via WMP. Page 9 of the manual for the c100 series (pdf) seems to confirm this.
The c100 series is listed as older so you may want to consider a c200 series player. The 250 costs $10-15 more but offers an expansion slot and a removable, i.e. user replaceable, battery.
Apparently a few have "leaked" out into the wild from BB.1. It would be cutting it too close to wait for the View. With it hitting stores (apparently) Oct. 31 and us leaving town Nov. 2 that's just not enough time to get things sorted and we've a lot of last-minute stuff to do.
Ok... That's just sad. As much as I like to bash and hate on Apple if there's anything that true of an iPod it's that it's very easy to use.One of my clients gave me a 2GB iPod nano. He couldn't figure out how to work it. I don't know what I'm going to do with it yet.
The later Sansa are crap. I have the Sport and it is five steps backwards from the Clip+ 8GB with the slot.No idea, locally, the only dedicated MP3 players are either from Sandisk or Sony (and Apple). Philips still advertise a 2015 based model, but it looks awfully similar to a Sandisk...
In saying that, the Sandisk Clip Sport meets all requirements, except no MicroSD slot and has a fixed battery, but has 16GB onboard.
IIRC, most recent MP3 players all use either UMS or MTP, both are widely supported on Win7+/Linux/OSX, etc, so connectivity shouldn't be an issue. (Windows 7 will need the most recent version of Windows Media Player installed to enable MTP support).
I'm pretty sure most have migrated to using their phones, so there isn't a lot of choice unfortunately...
