The MP3 Players are here!

Yep the MP3 players are here! We ended up getting a different brand that we had first selected but the functions are the same. I'm going to use this post as an MP3 player facts to answer some of the questions I've gotten about the players. Please feel free to ask questions either in person, sent email or leave a comment!

We ended up with the Creative Zen Nano Plus in blue. You can read Amazon reviews and comments about it here.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Does it allow you to create folders or playlists?
  • Yes it does. You can create and name folders anything you want using Windows Explorer.
If you're listening to a book on tape and turn it off, does it bookmark the spot so when you turn it back on you're right where you left off.
  • Yes it does. However if the battery dies I don't think this feature would work.
