    It's about time I get an Mp3 player so have decided to get hold of a rio carbon.

    I have one question which is undoubtedly going to sound a bit stupid - I have a work and home laptop, work one is win 98 so ruled out for connecting up to the player, home one is win 2000 but only 4gb hard drive. Am i going to be able to fill the 5gb player using this computer? - i was imagining encoding, transferring and deleting from the hd a few times or will the player try to match up with the computer drive and hence erase what is on it and not the computer.

    Also will be getting a fm transmitter (not for use in uk obviously tho) - is there anything better than the belkin tunecast 2 (sounds like it's a decent bet and i will want a car cig plug)

    Thanks in advance for the help

    Think there's a decent FM transmitter on the Proporta site ...

    Don't think the Carbon syncs with the PC in the way you describe, but could be wrong.

    for the sake of £40 you can get a 120-160Gb hard disk from Ebuyer or somewhere, just stick it in your PC as a Slave disk and it wil save you a hell of a lot of grief and hassle

    Or if, for whatever reason, you don't have the luxury of expansion slots, get yourself a high capacity external hard drive and just upgrade your USB to 2.0.
