It is everything as described
This is an interesting MP3 player.

I have given it a full blown 5 star rating because It performs perfectly to how it was designed to operate, as you will see in the manual from on line, you receive no manual with the unit.

I come from a long line of MiniDisc users but there are some mixes that are too big for the MiniDisc. I thought I would try this Sansa SlotMusic player.

First, the User Manual is here

Some History...
The Sansa SlotMusic Player is a creation from SanDisk.
They visioned a player that would play music from the micro card. The card would be marketed and packaged with pre recorded music as an alternative to the CD.
The Pre Rec cards were costly and did not go well with the buying public.

End of class.....

Now lets talk about the player itself.

In my opinion, this player is well built to take the knocks, though I did not drop it on the floor or off a bridge to test roughness. The cover is intended to be replaceable to change the looks of the player, IF YOU CAN STILL FIND THE COVERS.

This unit was never intended to play more than the amount of songs on a CD, say 21 tracks. So the player was designed to give you all the abilities of a cassette recorder.
You have play, stop, pause, fast foward, next track, fast rear, last track.
When you turn off the unit, then turn it back on, it will start where you last played a track as long as the battery does not go dead. If you change the battery, play will begin at the START of the compilation.

Formats.. plays MP3 or WMA

MEMORY... There is no mention of how big of a micro card you can use in the manual other than it can use the high capacity memory. One article says it will play from a 16 GB memory but be forwarned, this player does not find music by skipping easily and there is no display.

Battery is said to last 12 hours

Transferring music is as simple as drag and drop on the memory card.

Now that you know what the unit is designed for, IT DOES EVERYTHING IT WAS SUPPOSED TO DO and does it well.

The original idea of selling micro discs as music format seems to not have happened and using this player for SMALL compilations works VERY WELL, with about 20 tracks on the memory, you can easily search / skip to find songs.
HOWEVER, using VERY LARGE compilations, say 50 tracks, will not go well if you have to skip or search for songs, however, this is an excellant player for trips if you make your compilations long and just let them play...

This is also excellant for pod casts and or sending family messages to family.

This was my introduction to MP3 and compared to the MD, this Sansa Slot Music player works well as long as you understand what it was intended for.... The sound seem almost as good as the MD reproduction sound. Use your imagination for what you can used it for as well.....

Getting the card out
Good device overall. Good volume, good sound. There should be some instructions on how to get the card in and out. It has a latch that releases when you push IN on it.

Very good MP3 player!!
At first, I was a little disappointed with the
"manual". It only covers the battery installation. Then I installed a new AAA battery, and hooked up my All Elctncs. headphones. Then I copied some MP3 files off my pc and WOW!!! Sound is awesome! Super job AE!!
It has a very tiny SD card. Be patient with it!
I love the USB adapter!!

Great, but MicroSD lies
I bought three of these. They are nice little devices, but the SD card has a counterfeit size code-- it's really 512MB and not 1G. Writing past 1G will result in data corruption. Since the card reports it's self as 1G simple formatting won't work unless you are able to specify the filesystem size (such as with Linux), or partition the device off as a 510MB block device.

Other than the SD card surprise (which is likely why these are being dumped), the MP3 player isn't bad.

The SD card comes pre-loaded with some music and videos from Lady Gaga.

The usb MicroSD card reader is a handy addition.
