    its a Thomson (make)

    costs about 7 grand. has no memory.. except you can program the song numbers you want played.

    dont go for it. when i bought it 3 years ago, it was the latest thing.. now you get dvd players along with mp3 & vcd playing features for lesser.

    the ones with memory should be costlier especially if they also have a "cd" playing facility.. you know plays mp3 from cds as well as from memory.

    i think bob mistyped that as mp4 he meant mp3 .. i don't think mp4 players are available as hardware that is . .. but on the comp even mplayer plays mp4 ..

    I think MP4 files suck. They consume lesser space, but downloading patches to view these files is a headache. MP3 files are much better.

    mp stands for MPEG - Moving Pictures Expert Group.

    MPEG is simply a compression algorithm that takes out similarities between succesive frames in a file in order to reduce the file size.
    MPEG-4 was the next generation in the MPEG Compression Algorithm series which is 10 times better than MPEG. Another codec called H.263 is the near equivalent of MPEG-4 made by the ITU-T (International Telecommunications Union - Telecommunications Standardisations Sector). The reason it didn't become popular is because of licensing issues which screwed everything up. Otherwise MPEG-4 >>>>>>>>>>>>> MPEG-1/3
    MPEG-7 is a Descriptor Algorithm. It doesn't compress anything it only enhances the content by adding descriptive tags to the media files which allow them to become searchable based on content tags. So MPEG-7 is applied on top of any MPEG Compression Algrotihm.
    There are other MPEG algorithms that each do a different thing. MPEG-11 and MPEG-21. you need to visit the home of MPEG for more information www.chiariglione.org

    btw MPEG-2 exists but that is for broadcast television use only
