Mp3 players??!?!? - April 11, 2012, 10:36 AM

So for some odd reason my zune went missing?!?!? And that just put me in the market for a new MP3. Only issue im having is finding something with buttons?!?!

is there anything decent avail out there? Without a touch screen?



I'm not to picky about storage size, but it has to have buttons, so i dont have to dick around to change the song.


I really have no clue whats out there except of course the apple products but well just say a lot of my music is second hand in a sense.

ITunes doesn't care if you stole music or not, as long as they're in a readable format. However, they're all touchscreen based now. See if you can find an 80GB 5th Gen iPod which still has the "wheel" buttons.

I was hoping for something Fresh out the box... maybe i can find another GoW edition Zune....=) 250gigs and ill never listen to the same song 2wice!

My cousin told me to look for a minidisc player, since a disc holds about a gig worth of music....just the programs have a hard time running on new windows formats i guess....

Your cousin is an idiot. Minidisc is a dead format.

Did he also tell you to look for a cassette player called a "walkman?" Sheesh! MD players are old technology and not the best. We use one from time to time to record our live sets but I wouldn't use this as a means for having a good bit of music to have on hand. An iPOD shuffle would be better suited

Laserdisc FTW

I'm sure there are button mp3 players around, just not from the major players. Is iRiver still around? lol

Sandisk used to make the Sansa line.
Not very attractive from an ID or UI perspective, but are solid digital music players and inexpensive.

Yup, and very simple. Thumb drive format, just drag files onto them and it was done. They just behaved like another removeable drive in the computer. Even the iPod video did that, although you still needed import software. I used a 3rd party app stored on the device itself, so I didn't need to authenticate computers and such.
