    My wife wants a MP3 player, I know little to nothing about them but I've found this at Amazon, great reviews.
    She want's to copy all of her CDs to the player.

    I've been buying used electronics, cars, etc most of my life and have never had a single issue with any of them as long as the dealer is reputable. What's great is that I get these items at what I actually think they're worth. :dunno:

    Not understanding something here. You copy the songs on the CDs to your computer, then you copy 'em to your MP3 player.

    Are you saying that's how it's done or are you asking a question?

    That much I figured out. Maybe I worded it wrong but the question was about the actual player I posted, personal impressions.... good..... bad..... find a better one at a comparable price?
    My experience with MP3 players and their specs is:

    ($*(&%$ MP3 %((*%##&()%^#$ 8GB )^T%$&**&&$$##^^*&&%#(. Music *%$*)_(*&* Video.....................
