The Rio Carbon - MP3 Player is a good compromise between large hard drive and
flash based MP3 players. It comes with a 5GB hard drive which is enough to hold
1250 songs in 128 kbps MP3 format. You have to wonder why anybody needs a 20GB
MP3 player -- 1250 songs is enough to keep most people happy for years!

measures just 2.5 inches wide and 3.3 inches high. It is just over half an inch
thick which makes it comfortable slip into any shirt or jeans pocket. The

one-hand navigation a snap.
The Rio Carbon - MP3 Player is equipped with a USB 2.0 interface, a built-in
microphone, and a headphone jack. Volume is adjusted using the multipurpose
directional pad which has a smooth, comfortable feel.
Attached to your computer through the USB 2.0 port, music files can be
transferred quickly and easily. The Rio Carbon - MP3 Player comes with computer
software for managing your music collection. You can use it to rip songs from
CDs and to encode them in WMA or MP3 format. Music can be organized in any way
you like -- by artist, album, genre, or year. There is full support for ID3 tags
so information about the music is displayed as it plays.
You can also organize songs on the go, directly arranging play lists on the Rio
Carbon - MP3 Player. Playback options include random playback, or you can select
them by artist, album, or genre. There is even a function for playing back
recently accessed songs -- you can choose songs that you've listened to in the
last day, week, or month.
The Rio Carbon - digital MP3 Player is powered with a rechargeable lithium-ion
battery that offers up to 20 hours of continuous playback. The battery can be
charged through the USB port or through the AC adapter.
The voice recording feature is handy for students and businesspeople who have to
record meetings or lectures. The Rio Carbon - MP3 Player comes with a
serviceable set of headphones -- they are not the greatest, and if you are like
most people, you will buy your own set of aftermarket headphones.

is functional and the 5GB of storage is sure to meet the needs of all but the
most demanding music lovers.
