High Capacity Sansa Players?

I've read threads and opinions from other people who dislike iPods. I agree that iPods are wonderfully designed, but a little bit overpriced. I've never owned an iPod. My first MP3 player was a Sandisk classic 1GB player, and from there I've been moving on, with other Sansa players.

I was explaining in another topic that I'm planning to buy a new player, 3GB are just not enough for me anymore, and my e140 won't support higher capacity expansion cards.

Sandisk's current highest capacity player is the 16GB Sansa View. ($200) and I could expand it with an 8GB Micro SDHC ($140) and get 24GB of space, but dude... for that amount ($340) I can get a 160GB iPod classic!!!

Ok, I know, iPod Classic is HDD based and Sansa is Flash Memory based. Quite a difference.

However, I love Sansa players, and I'd love to see the day I can buy a 40GB... 80GB+++ Sansa player.

I'm not much into photos or videos. I don't carry around my whole family album. If I wanna see a movie or watch TV series, I have a TV at home with a nice home teather for that. BUT... I have tons and tons of MP3s, whole artist collections and at high bitrates for a good audio quality, so, SIZE DOES MATTER!

Now, I've heard that the new SDHC in FAT32 will allow (theoretically) a maximum capacity of up to 2048GB, and currently largest available USB Drives and Compact Flash Type I are up to 64GB. In fact, in August 2007 Toshiba announced that they would be launching a 32 GB SDHC card [view reference]. So I guess it's just a matter of time until we can have a 64GB, 128GB or even 256GB Sansa player!

When you have it, I will buy it!

Sandisk should make some players with a full sized SD card card slot that navigate by folders or ID3 tags. How hard would it be to design a player with 2 or more full sized SD card slots?

Re: High Capacity Sansa Players?

I have an 80gb Sansa player onto which I loaded a ton of classical music that I had bought. I tucked it away for a couple of years and today rediscovered it and wanted to start listening to my music. The only problem is that I can't seem to turn it on. (I do have it connected to a usb port on my laptop.) Nor can I find an instruction manual at home or online. Nor can I find any information on this 80gb MP3 player on any SanDisk or Sansa website. Does anyone know where I can find instructions for using this player (which I think cost me about $175 a couple of years ago).

Re: High Capacity Sansa Players?

It would be helpful:  what is the player model?  And then you can try checking at the forum for that model, or asking in that specific forum, or posting your own general question with a descriptive subject line, noting the player model, so that people will respond.

 

In the meanwhile, I would leave the player connected to an "on" computer for awhile--it may just need a charge.  (However, note that, with time, batteries degrade--yours may have degraded beyond being able to hold any amount of charge, depending on their age and age since having last been charged.)

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Sandisk has never made a player with more than 16GB built-in. I'd say you either have a Fuze+ and a 64GB microsdxc card (which, if it was even available 2 years ago, would have been very expensive) or a player made by a similarly-named manufacturer. Maybe Samsung?

There was a 32GB View that had a microsd slot....that was long before the 64GB cards were out though.

iPod Touch 5G 32GB, Touch 4G 32GB, Clip Sport 8GB.
Rockbox-> Clip Zip 4GB, iPod Nano 2G 4GB, iPod 5.5G 80GB
