Re: slotRadio on Sansa Fuze!

I agree on the subject of "Spam."  A brief clip is a nice indication that the recording has gone 'round once and is repeating -- so you don't think you've been rooked into 1000 recordings of less than 1000 songs.

Re: slotRadio on Sansa Fuze!

Hey, Tapeworm, for those of us who haven't bought music in decades, we never would have bought the songs we loved because we didn't know aritists' and titles' names!  This is  GREAT deal!

I just bought a SlotRadio at Radio Shack & I love it!  If I want to hear Classical music I can even listen to Public Radio via the FM setting ... However, I would rather be listening to a Classical Billboard chip!  It would also be nice to find blank chips I could load with my own MP3s via my Mac.  Advice? Info?

All you need is a microSD card, available almost anyplace that sells MP3 players or digital cameras, and a way to put music on it. Many modern PCs have memory card readers/writers built in, though you'll need an adapter to make the microSD card fit the standard SD slot (microSD cards are often sold packaged with an adapter).

Re: slotRadio on Sansa Fuze!

[ Edited ]

I am under the impression that SlotRadio does nothing but play these prepared cards. The SlotMusic cards may not even play in the SlotRadio.

 

Heads up Sansa! These products have really bad names and make a difficult concept worse!

 

How does one refer simply to the SlotRadio (card) distinctly from the SlotRadio (player)? What a mess.

 

Since I'm here posting again, I thought I would point out that the Fuze is displaying album art but I think the SlotRadio does not have that feature. The SlotRadio is apparently some afterthought while the Fuze is the real thing.

 

I was thinking a SlotRadio (card) with the classical genre would be nice, but I realize it would be boring. It would contain only the popular movements Pacelbel, of Vivaldi, the "best of Beethoven" and would be probably the performed by those cheap ex-Russia orchestras. I can do without that.  I might rather hear the 'best of radio comedy" or something like that.

I believe this is the case with SlotMusic cards, but the SlotRadio cards are a different ball 'o wax. I don't think you can copy these, or for that matter, manipulate them in any way. That's why you can't change the play order of the songs or anything.


Gotcha :smileyhappy:

The restrictions they put on usage are the only way they can sell 1000 songs for $40.

Re: slotRadio on Sansa Fuze!

One of the reviews linked above says the person loaded some music into the empty area of the card to play. And elsewhere two of the reviews speak in less detail of loading music to other cards to play. So it may work.

 

We need a buyer to report in, but those people are not likely to be the experiment-and-report type, which is why they bought the device. Maybe a relative will do it for us.

 

Just yesterday have seen the ad showing a gal with one of the SlotRadio. All other ads I have seen have no hands to show the scale. I had impression this thing was much larger than it is. It is very cute.

Re: slotRadio on Sansa Fuze!

You can load about an album's worth on the slotradio card's free space. Works as advertised with MP3 and WMA.

 

and... it's Pachelbel BTW...
