Summary: First of all, Audiovox does suck for not providing support on this model, a reasonably good MP3 player for its time. In terms of basic playback quality it is still fairly decent, but the lack of USB support, major expandability (can only go up to 64MB), and 2000/XP support make it a definite loser...
Summary: Unfortunately, I have to agree with the others- while this is a great MP3 player and it really served me well until I upgraded to Windows XP and found out the hard way that it was not compatible and there is no way around it!
Summary: I purchased the MP-1000 about a year ago and it worked great. It still does, as long as I keep a computer with Windows 98 or ME. I realized it DOES NOT work with XP after I upgraded. With most new computers coming with XP, the older operating systems will fade away.
Summary: I bought this MP3 players as a Christmas present for my wife. In the 6 months that she has had it, it has been back to Audiovox for repairs twice and now has stopped working again. It is out of warranty and definitely not worth the cost of an out-of warranty repair.
Summary: The MP-1000 has become useless since there is not currently and will never be support for Windows XP or 2000. Audiovox "understands your frustration . . ." but will no longer be providing support for their MP3 products and will not be providing any further software updates.
