You can also see how much power is left in the battery and the volume indicator. In date view, you can see the current date and time.

You have a variety of options when playing back music on the Carbon Audio Player. All the music can be play backed in order, or it can be played by album or artist, year or genre. You can also select play lists which have been created on your computer.

Bookmarks are a feature which can be used to store specific settings on your Rio Carbon 5GB  Digital Audio Player. They are ideal for marking your place in extended audio recordings such as audio books. They allow you to duplicate all the settings currently in use without the danger of losing your place if you lend your player to someone else.
