“Purchased the e.Digital MXP100 portable mp3 player for...”

Written on: 16/06/2004 by kavanagh (1 review written)

Purchased the e.Digital MXP100 portable mp3 player for my sons birthday, tracks started skipping around the 3 month mark. Impossible to get a response from Customer service then after about 10 mails and 4 months. They informed that it would cost $45 plus postage and packing to fix, still waiting 2 months later for a reply to the question "what about the UK?"… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2003 by Smoky Joe. (1 review written)

Nice value, I got 340 mb microdrive MXP100 for $150. The rechargeable battery seems to last a long time. It's sturdily made, but seems not quite professional standard such as the rubber piece that goes over the memory slot and usb connection and the buttons aren't that cool. The one thing the MXP doesn't have that my Rio500 had was a bookmarks, and a fast forward that progressively went faster. On the MXP you can FF at say 30 seconds of song in maybe 10 seconds, so if you're listening to an… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2003 by Lorewin. (1 review written)

The two major complaints I've seen in other review of this unit - the price and the slow transfer speed - are now largely things of the past.


This was the cheapest 256MB player (1 CF card included) I could find in the UK: £120. incl from www.advancedmp3players.co.uk.


The latest firmware allows the CF or micrdodrives to be read in other readers, so it's no longer necessary to use either the included software or even the cable for anything other than firmware updates. I havea USB2 CF reader

a good point but the feature is not documented in the manual even for the updated version as far as I can tell.
<br>
<br>It is accomplished as follows:
<br>. You can transfer files to a Compact Flash Card directly when using the MXP-100, but you have to follow the steps below when re-inserting the CF card into the player:
<br>
<br>-Insert new CF card into MXP 100 and connect to Music Explorer (This formats the card and creates the 3 main folders:Data,Music & Voice)
<br>-Remove CF card and insert into card reader.
<br>-Using Windows Explorer or similar, explore card to find "Music" folder & open
<br>-Create subfolders (i.e.My MP3's) as you would in Music Explorer & open
<br>-Drag & Drop MP3s into subfolders as you like
<br>-When finished insert CF card back in MXP 100
<br>-Instead of switching unit on with PLAY button, ROTATE & HOLD SCROLL wheel in DOWNWARD direction whilst pressing PLAY button
<br>-MXP 100 will switch on with message "Reconciling disk"
<br>-You can then play music as normal
<br>
<br>Please note:
<br>MXP 100 will recognise the MP3s every time when switching on normally afterwards unless you remove/add any MP3s, then you have to "reconcile the disk" again, otherwise it will not read the newly added MP3s.
<br>
<br>However I would be most appreciative of any advice you can give me regarding handling VOICE files under this system. When I read the card directly on my laptop card reader I simply does not see the VOICE folder.

<br>I think I found that "roll the wheel down and hold" feature when I searched the newsgroup archives for discussion of this mxp100 via google.

to steveherzfeld;
<br>
<br>that is so cool to find out I can finally transfer files directly to CF cards rather than using the software with the mpx100, too slow :-(.
<br>Thanks!
<br>How did you find out the "down-dial+play" feature and are there any more undocumented features?

From the Apollo FAQ (I haven't tried this but assume it will also work for the RIFF files as well as MP3s)
<br>
<br>--
<br>How do I decode MP3s to WAV?
<br>From the options dialog (available through the hammer-button) select the Output tab. Select the "Decode to .WAV file without playback" radio button. Then press the Browse-button and select the folder where you want the WAVs to be written. Then press the OK-button and start to play the MP3s you want to decode.
<br>
<br>You won't hear any output during the decoding. For decoding in background, it might be wise to set the process priority to low from the General section. This is because Apollo will use all the processor time it gets to do the decoding.
<br>
<br>After playing the MP3s you should find the corresponding WAVs in the directory you selected. To switch back to playback, select "Wave Out" or DirectSound again from the Options->Output.
<br>--
<br>
<br>Hope this works for you
<br>

Thank you. Very useful advice on both counts.
<br>Apollo is a very cool little player.
<br>
<br>I guess the only other point is:
<br>DO you know if the RIFF file can be converted to MP3 or real WAV so I can burn a CD of a lecture I recorded?

Lorewin's Response to Lorewin.'s Review

Written on: 10/09/2003

The 'Voice' folder is tagged as a system folder, which Windows explorer hides by default. In XP (the only version I have to hand at the moment), you can go to Tools...Folder Options...View and ensure 'Hide Protected Operating System Files' is unchecked. Alternately, in any version on windows, open up a command window, and type:
<br>
<br>attrib -s -h x:\*.*
<br>
<br>where 'x' is the letter of your removable (CF/Micro) drive.
<br>
<br>Note that voice memo files have a .wav extension, but they are in RIFF format. Apollo player plays them under Windows (http://www.hut.fi/~hylinen/apollo/)
<br>
<br>Enjoy!
<br>

“I have had two of these units fail within one year....”

Written on: 31/10/2002 by IrishKid. (1 review written)

I have had two of these units fail within one year. The first was within first two months of purchase. The replacement failed within three months. e.Digital would not provide a replacement for the second unit. Maybe these products were rushed to market without being tested enough. The company should support thier products better. This is a expensive higher-end consumer electronic product. The buyer should expect that it will perform as advertised and not fail within a couple month. Stick with a… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/10/2002 by daniel. (1 review written)

My MXP-100 has been a standout digital music player. Frequent firmware and software upgrades from e.Digital (www.edig.com) have made the product even easier to use. The VoiceNav, while effective, is not something I use very often - I prefer to manually scroll through my songs. I use my 1G Microdrive with my digital camera as well - it stores all my photos and music concurrently. I highly recommend the MXP-100… Read Full Review

“You have to hand it to e.Digital, they did something...”

Written on: 20/02/2002 by milplease. (1 review written)

You have to hand it to e.Digital, they did something with the mxp100 portable MP3 player no one else can do for a small digital music player. They made it so it can be upgraded later for new music codecs.
They made it so it can support the IBM MicroDrive and still have a long battery life (I got 10 hours). The MicroDrive can give you hundreds of songs (1 Gig).
And they put in a voice call up feature to find songs.
It's a JukeBox with the size of a Flash player.
Since it is unlike anything else… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2002 by bys. (1 review written)

This e.digital mxp100 is the only mp3 player that you can really put hours of music on and run with it. However the proprietary software is just foolish. You have this wonderful 1gig microdrive and instead of removing it and using it with an adapter to transfer files, you have to load it one song at a time through this idiot program that won't let you reorder the songs and has a really slow transfer rate… Read Full Review
