I need a MP3 player that can be powered by plugging into a wall outlet or powered by USB.
All I need is 512 or 1G, does anyone have any models I can look at?

Best Buy has a load of cheap ones that fit your application. I bought one for one of the kids a couple of weeks ago for less than the cost of dinner. It didn't come with an AC adapter, but AC-USB adapters are readily available.

Assume you want an MP3 for message-on-hold, not personal use. We have installed many of these units with no problems. Check them out.

Let the buyer beware. And, I hope I'm not too far off topic... You get what you pay for. I bought a couple of those low priced MP3 players and had nothing but trouble. Not saying there are not players out there in the 20 to 30 dollar ballpark, just that I had trouble with them and got tired of taking them back to the store. I ended up getting a SONY Walkman, an exquisite little machine. It was $90 but well worth it.

So far we've had very little trouble with mp3 players. Our biggest issue in the past was having a source that would come back up automatically after a power failure. Since all of our locations now have dedicated workstations hooked to the phone switch for programming, we just have a playlist in the start up menu and allow the media player on the computer to supply the hold music.

Because a post in this thread makes reference to using an MP3 player for the purpose MOH I would like to point out the following:

Buyer beware is right. There are alot of junk mp3 players out there so choose wisely. You can get an IPOD Shuffle for around 50 bucks these days.

To validate what CMDL_GUY posted, you cannot play music on-hold that you own on an MP3 player, CD player, computer, etc. unless you have paid the proper licensing fees. You are not even allowed to play the radio on-hold as it falls into the same category. It is considered a "public performance" and ASCAP and BMI can certainly try to claim the the fees and penalties for the artist if aware.

I thought the off-the-air MOH arguement had been finished off in court. Theory was that those on hold would be able to listen to it on their radio anyway, so no biggie. John C.
