Summary: Dear All, I have still not received my Mp3 Ditty. Where is it? I have been waiting for 4 months now and I fear it has been lost in the mail. Please contact me as to the whereabouts of this item a.s.a.p.
Summary: I received this player for free from Dell when I ordered a laptop. When I finally used it, the battery life was really short, the screen is too small & difficult to read, and menu navagation is a pain in the butt. I also had to 'reset' the device often. This player lasted less than three months before it died. I'm glad I didn't fork out any money for it, otherwise I would really be upset. I would never buy this product or recommend it to anyone.
Summary: My reason for buying this was because my mom had accidentally put my old DJ ditty through the washing machine, a week later, i got my brand new one, it was a complete piece of crap! when I turned it on and put my headphones in, 85% of the screen would go to black & the sound only came out in 1 ear bud, finally after a week, I went to Fred Meyer and bought a Phillips Go Gear RaGa, they are much better than the ditty.
Summary: Shortly after I purchased it from Dell it began having communication problems with my computer. Sometimes it did not recognize the unit, sometimes you could not load music on to it. Now, it is completly non fuctioning. I tried to load the latest firmware from Dell, but the installer could not find the unit, even when the computer saw it. But regardless of the status, it would not sync with Media Player. I have reset it many times without results.
Summary: Prospective purchasers should take the following points into account 1) DELL expects the battery to last from 1 to 3 years, and 2) there is no way to replace the battery. I thought this was a great little product until one day, about six months after the warranty expired, it just died. I would not buy another one and I would not recommend anyone else doing so unless you're prepared to buy another in 18 months to 2 years.
Summary: If I could give this thing 0 stars I would !! It is a total piece of "Ca ca." Bought it brand new on eBay. The F.M radio worked fine - but when I tried to play music files there was NO SOUND. I updated the firmware for it - still no sound. STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE !! As I type this I am listening to music on a Creative Zen Stone 1 MB player, which I highly recommend.
Summary: I like others received the DJ Ditty free with a Dell computer I purchased this year. What my 1 star will represent is the fact that it came 'free' with the purchase. I thought it was me trying to figure out how this thing should work, but it was not. I was able to load some music, however like another reviewer a month or so later, it stated that the license had expired.
Summary: I bought the Ditty because it is small and light and I was tired of running with my big Dell Jukebox. It really is a great mp3 player except that it stopped working about a month after the warranty expired. I wouldn't recommend anyone buying it. I never even dropped the thing, and it now fast-forwards the whole time it's on. It doesn't even have the option to fast-forward, so I don't really understand what happened. For $100 I'm pretty mad.

Summary: I got this free when I purchased a laptop from Dell. The fact that they were giving it away should tell you something. I already had music match from a previous device that died and it recognized the Ditty right away and the software worked fine with this device. The problems I had were short battery life, small view screen when selecting songs and it died after eight months.
