If you are looking to buy a new MP3 player, ask yourself this, "What do I want to use it for?" An essential first step and will help you get the most from your new player. You also will save yourself a lot of time and frustration, it's all too common to discover that your player can do lots of things you don't need it to do, and not the things you want it to do.


If you are looking to buy a new MP3 player, ask yourself this, "What do I want to use it for?" An essential first step and will help you get the most from your new player. You also will save yourself a lot of time and frustration, it's all too common to discover that your player can do lots of things you don't need it to do, and not the things you want it to do.

You'll find it makes choosing your player much easier. Rather than being overwhelmed by choice and not understanding why one player is better than another, or which will be more suitable for your needs. Do you want to just listen to music while your are out jogging or working out? Do you want to tune into the radio or want to watch your favorite videos on it?

There are MP3 players with simple button controls. Press play, volume, and up and down to scroll through your music library. Or say hello to touch screens. While Apple have popularized them with their iPod touch, there are now many players with touch screens. Touch screens do have their advantage, feeling that you are in the 21st century is certainly one of them. For many, it's fun and easy way to control the player. But remember for those who have never used a touch screen before, it does take a little while to get used to it.

You will need to find out if your music and movie files are compatible with your MP3 player. One of the main problems having bought a player, is to find that it doesn't play your files. While we tend to think that all music files are MP3's, this is not actually not the case. While MP3 is perhaps the most popular music file format, there are plenty more. We have Windows Media Audio, or WMA, Real Media or RM, and Apple use a format called AAC.

Finding a player that suits you, and then find it won't play your music collection is common, and there is a answer. You can find many free programs that convert will quickly convert your music files into a format compatible with your MP3 player. You may find that your MP3 player comes with software to do this too.

Ask a friend. If you have a friend or family member that seem to have a good MP3 player, which they find easy to use, ask them about it, let them show it off to you. Ask them what they really like about it, and if they think it would be suitable for you.
