- Proporta mp3 SD Player
This tiny and easy-to-use MP3 Player has a major advantage over rival devices - it accepts SD and MMC memory cards, like the ones used in leading PDAs, Smartphones and digital cameras.
Now you can take a library of music with you at a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the weight and bulk of big hard drive based MP3 players. And because the Proporta SD Player uses a Standard AAA Battery, you can get powered up wherever you are.
Because the Proporta SD MP3 Player has no internal hard drive, its battery life is enormous on a normal Alkaline AAA cell. It’s also much smaller and lighter than rival devices and, because it takes memory cards, you can take a library of music with you stored on convenient SD/MMC cards.
How much music can I carry?
If you create MP3 files at high quality (128kbps), you’ll get around 1 minute of audio per MB of space on the memory card. An average CD is around 55 minutes long, so you’d get 9 or 10 on a 512MB Memory Card. You could drop the recording quality down and get much more music per MB if you wanted. Please note that the Proporta mp3 SD Player is limited to take 1GB cards only.
If you consider the physical size of a memory card and the availability of 1GB memory cards already (with 4GB models in the pipline), it adds up to a lot of portable music.
How do I load the Proporta SD Player with my music?
You can connect the Proporta SD MP3 Player up to your PC with the standard USB to Mini USB Cable included with the product (you won’t need the included driver unless you have Windows 98 or older) or just use the memory cards…
If you have a PDA with an SD/MMC slot, you can use it to transfer the music you want onto your Proporta MP3 SD Player, managing your music library wherever you are. From a Laptop or PC, you’ll need an SD/MMC slot. If you don’t have one, the Proporta Flashmate Card Reader is ideal. It couldn’t be easier, plug the Flashmate in and slide the MMC/SD card into the slot; now just drag and drop the MP3 music files you want from your PC to the card and back.
TIP: You can also use rechargeable NiMH cells in this device. Have a look at the Proporta NiMH Charger and the Solar Charger for Mobile Devices.
Please note: Headphones not included. Only available in black rubber finish.

“Proporta has launched the PROPORTA SD MP3 Player rivaling other small flash-based mp3 players. It has amazingly simple drag and drop music transfer, and you don’t have to load up any software to use it. I didn’t even mention the best part….YOU CAN STORE AS MUCH MUSIC AS YOUR LITTLE HEART DESIRES because this player uses a removable SD Card.”<p><a href='http://www.futurelooks.com/?m=show&id=236' target='_blank'>http://www.futurelooks.com/?m=show&id=236</a></p>
