Dont know about the batery, but you wont need drivers for use on XP as it will just detect it as a mass storage device. Probably why they only mention 98 (the second edition of 98 was usb compatible).gr-argh said:Gary,
I've a couple of questions on the player, from the website,
# Built-in rechargeable Lithium battery. Can you replace the battery?
# Includes software for Windows 98 operating. What about XP?
# USB cable - included. USB on Windows 98?
Hi Gary,Gary Lightfoot said:I've not looked into replacing the battery either, but the USB works fine with XP. I just dropped all my folders ont the drive (each folder is an album), and select 'shuffle all' and it randomly plays a track from all of the folders, which means I've no idea which track/album will be next.
As for ugly, I got it for its storage size/value and not its looks so that I could use it in the car. It's approx 4.75" x 3.3" x 1" in size. I can put it in a jacket pocket or the glove box and let it play via an FM transmitter so it doesn't have to be in sight.
It looks like it'll come apart after removing 4 screws, but I've yet to try that.
