Audio compression technology allows large digital music files to be reduced up to 10 times in size without radically degrading their audio quality. MP3 or WMA are two of the compression formats that let you enjoy a world of digital music on your GoGear player. Download MP3 or WMA songs from authorized music sites on the Internet or create your own MP3 or WMA music files by ripping your audio CDs and transferring them onto your player.
Voice recording to take notes or record anything, anytime
Voice recording converts your GoGear player into a handy dictation machine. Besides playing music or listening to radio, you can also record notes or reminders for work or school, record shopping lists and phone numbers – even song lyrics. By pressing the recording button and speaking into the built-in microphone, voice messages are compressed and stored in the built-in internal memory. Voice recording gives you a highly portable voice recorder allowing you to record anything, anytime and anywhere!
Fast downloads from your PC via USB 2.0*
Transferring large music and video data files at high speed from the computer to your portable MP3 or MP3 video player is now a breeze, thanks to the USB 2.0 device that comes with your player. Just connect it to the USB 2.0 port of the computer using the cable provided for the speedy process to start. And your music is ready to go wherever you go.
Direct USB – no cables needed
Devices with direct USB can be plugged directly into the USB port of your PC without the need for any cable. Your computer will automatically recognize the device as a removable USB mass storage device (Windows 98 requires additional drivers) allowing you to easily drag and drop files via Windows Explorer (or Apple Folders) between your computer and device. Simply pack your device with music and data on the go - everyday.
Plug and play data
The "plug-and-play" feature allows you to transfer music, photo, video or data files from your computer to your music player with ease. Simply connect your GoGear MP3 or MP3 video player to your computer with the cable provided. Your computer will automatically recognize the player as a removable flash storage device, allowing you to easily drag and drop files using Windows Explorer or Apple Macintosh. Now all you have to do is pack your GoGear player with music and data on the go - everyday.
Drag and drop your songs easily - no software needed
You can quickly and easily copy your music collection from your PC to your GoGear player. Simply connect your GoGear to your PC while in Windows® Explorer, select the songs or the folders that you want to copy to your player, then drag the selected files to the GoGear's music folder. It is that simple. No additional software installation is needed!
Equalizer for optimized sound to suit your music style
GoGear Players with Equalizer, utilize technology to automatically set the optimum sound frequency balance for a chosen music style. Whether it is Jazz, Rock or Pop that you are listening to, using the Equalizer preset setting allows you to enjoy the optimum sound for that music style.
Folder view helps you to find songs easily and quickly
Folder view is an optional directory view of the GoGear player that lets you view all the files on your player as if it were a computer. Once you select Folder view, opening any supported file (i.e. music, pictures or videos) is as easy as selecting the file and hitting Play.
