Suggestions for new audio player for

Hi all.
I am now in the market for a new digital audio player. I had a Creative Zen Micro, that succumbed to the infamous headphone jack. Now, due to Walmart's almighty warranty service program, I have a check for $250.
I have been looking at the Vision M and the Micro Photo, but am unsure of which I would like. I'm inclined toward the Vision, because of the video capability and the 30 gig dri've. But I have a feeling the Micro Photo will be perfect for me.
Does anyone have any advice besides search the forums and do my own research? I am already doing that, and still not sure. Also, have there been any major problems that are affecting these players?
Any other digital audio player recommendations will be welcome also. Anything with greater than or equal to a 5 gigabyte capacity, and plays audio well.
Thanks much!
Andy
Also, if this might matter - I have a spare battery from my old Zen Micro, and I have all the accessories (cable, power cord, etc). Would that mean I should be more inclined to the ZMP?Message Edited by moparhemifan on 0-3-2006 03:50 AM

Really it comes down to features. If 8Gb isn't enough space, the decision is made for you. If you want video support, decision is made for you
Both players are relati'vely new, and the problems affecting both won't have come to the fore yet (if there are any). The big let down with the Micro Photo for some has been the inability to play music and look at photos, and no album art. The Vision:M though has both of these functions. I know what player I would buy!

  • Suggestion for new mp3 player (had a creative zen mic

    Well time for me to get a new mp3 player. Because Creative wasn't very good at honouring my warranty (four players didn't work properly and they wouldn't replace the fourth) I am reluctant to get another creative. But if you guys tell me they have come along way AND I can use my previous charger with a new player, then I'll consider it.Suggestions?

    i have the zen v plus and i am quite happy with it, i just updated to the latest firmware, it charges by plugging into your computer USB (cable provided) its a budget nano competitor that has great user interface and i personally thing the design is really cool and it plays videos, but im trying to get creative to include compression video support in future firmware cause the video it supports is like 4 MB to 8 seconds of video :| the sound quality is pretty good, but then again i dont know your standards it has an inbuilt FM receiver and line in/mic recording
    im really happy with it.

  • Can any one suggest a realtime audio recorder for Reaktor in Logic please?

    Hi all,
    So its been a few days so far with Logic Pro 7 on my new intel Mac, I made the jump from PC land and Nuendo and am trying to get up to speed.
    What I am in dire need of is an application that I can use at the same time as Logic to record the output of some granular parts from Raktor5.
    Basically I am trying to manually do some tweaks on sounds that I just want to be recorder into audio files and then inport them into logic for further editing.
    Can any one make a good suggestion for such a think, or does Logic have something similar to this already built in?
    Thank you all in advance for the help and past help I have recieved in this forum.
    Cheers!

    Hi all,
    Thanks for the ideas... I went with the recorder box and that solution worked perfect! I used to be on a PC and had a Creamware system that allows for routing of audio any where with as many drivers as you want EG: Asio2, Wave and such at the same time so you could just have (at the time I was using Nuendo3) your DAW up, open an instance of soundforge and start weaking Reaktor ensembles from within your DAW host while recording direct to disk in sound forge with out having to do anything, it worked amazingly well.
    This is the next best thing.
    Now I just need to spend more time in Logic to learn my way around as I am a new user..
    Cheers!

  • Any suggestions for Xilinx products to support audio input or touch screens?

    Hi,
    My boss just told me that I will get some funding from our department for new equipment purchase. We want to spend the money on Xilinx FPGA and tool kit.
    We already have a ML605 evaluation board in our lab. Currently, we just make it  communicate with PC with UART cable, but we want to have better demonstrations in the future.
    (1) We want to use a microphone to record speech signals during real time and send the audio signals to FPGA;
    (2) We want to have a touch screen for users to write on, and the handwritten images will be send to the FPGA;
    (3) Any suggestions for fancier demonstration? Video detection or robots?
    For (1), maybe it is possible to just use ML605. But I heard something called "FMC card". So any suggestions on such products;
    For (2), what kind of boards or cards should we purchase?
    Also important,  we can also buy a new evaluation board with Virtex-7, if such boards already support (1) and (2).
    Any suggestions will be appreciated :-)

     I would recommend you to please get in touch with Authorized distributors they will help you.

    There seems to be a problem, just now, with the USB 3 ports on the new MBP's supporting eternal USB 3 drives. Some people have no luck at all - can't even recognize the drive - and some are reporting USB 2 speeds (those who drives are recognized). I'd call a dealer such as LaCie or OWC to see if they have USB 3 drives that actually work with MBP's with USB 3 ports. You may have to wait for a software/firmware update.

  • ArchWiki: suggestion for a new page layout

    Finally, I have some time to spare for ArchWiki improvement.
    I have modified my article on CMYK support in The GIMP as an example.
    Please take a look at it here:
    http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CMY … n_The_GIMP
    The code to produce the box on the right is here:
    {{sn|'''Article summary:'''
    This article will show how to enable rudimentary CMYK support in The GIMP using the Separate plug-in, and explain how to use color proof filter to soft-proof your images.
    It will also cover more general topics on CMYK colors and DTP.

As you can see, it's a bit more typing than before, but it sure looks better. I might shorten the names for the templates. I wanted to make them memorable so they are a bit long.
As you can see, the problem of i18n links integration was fixed, so you can use existing i18n template and combine with the new "Article summary" set.
I will modify the article about writing summaries to include those templates and examples.
EDIT:  :oops:  the i18n links in the article are just examples. Don't use them, since they lead to non-existing pages.
EDIT2: Okay, I've played around with the appearance of the summary box, but I'm at work now, so it's going nowhere. I'll play with it some more when I get home.

  • How can we suggest a new DBA OCE certification for very large databases?

    How can we suggest a new DBA OCE certification for very large databases?
    What web site, or what phone number can we call to suggest creating a VLDB OCE certification.
    The largest databases that I have ever worked with barely over 1 Trillion Bytes.
    Some people told me that the results of being a DBA totally change when you have a VERY LARGE DATABASE.
    I could guess that maybe some of the following topics of how to configure might be on it,
    * Partitioning
    * parallel
    * bigger block size - DSS vs OLTP
    * etc
    Where could I send in a recommendation?

  • Suggestions for how I can get the new purchases currently trapped on my iPod transferred to iTunes?

    I recently bought an iPod touch and had no trouble loading all the existing music I have in iTunes to my new iPod.  The problem is that no matter what I try I cannot transfer purchases I made on the new iPod into iTunes.  Every time I try, "Transfer Purchases" is greyed out.  As a result the seven tracks that I bought on the iPod are trapped on the device.  I can't get them into iTunes.  Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can get the seven new purchases currently trapped on my iPod transferred to iTunes?
    I've tried suggestions from multiple support forums, and nothing has worked.  Does anyone know why "Transfer Purchases" would be greyed out and how I can fix it so I can get the music purchases from the device to the computer.  Before anyone asks, this has not happened with any other Apple device I have owned, including my iPhone 4 8GB, iPod Touch 2nd Gen 32GB, iPad 1st Gen 64GB, and iPad 2 64GB.  Why is it suddenly happening now?
    My new iPod is an iPod Touch 5th generation 64GB  using iOS 7.1.2, and iTunes is version 11.
    I've never had this problem before.  It's driving me nuts.  Any help is very much appreciated.

    Does iTunes see the iPod?
    Is the computer authorized for the account that purchased the items?

    Flash question.
    I'm using a Flash audio player script that I got here:
    http://www.1pixelout.net/code/audio-player-wordpress-plugin/
    Here it is on the web page, a few lines down from the top of
    the blog post:

    It's an MP3 of a podcast which has been working fine
    everywhere I've tested
    it. But we just heard from someone who says that when she
    tried it, the
    audio was sped up so that "the voices were like chipmunks".
    Anyone have any idea what might have caused that?

  • Suggestions for new external HD

    I have a G4 powerbook with 80 GB of HD which is pretty much maxed out. Looking for an external HD to transfer pics on to, and to do some backup with. (Currently i use my iDisk for backup of my Documents folder, so haven't really needed Backup). Any suggestions for a good ext HD though? LaCie? Toshiba?
    Also, I'm thinking I should upgrade my 512 of memory to full gig of memory. All this doesn't need me to lead me down the path of a new MacBook instead, does it?!

    GoBraves:
    Since you have a PowerPC Mac you should be sure to get a Firewire external HDD. This will enable you to make a bootable clone which will do double duty as a full backup and as an emergency boot drive.
    Be sure that the HDD that you get is larger enough. Since they drives are now quite affordable I would not suggest anything less than 250 GB. You can partition this clone your HDD to a partition approximately the size of your internal HDD.
    The element in a Firewire Drive that fails most often is the firewire bridge. You need to get a drive with the more reliable Oxford 911+ chipset like one of these external firewire HDDs at OWC.
    Good luck.
