Getting Started with an Audiovox MP3 Player

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...


I just bought my daughter an MP3 player, and I guess I'm dumb, lol, but I just dont understand how to download the music onto the thing. It came with a CD, but its only for windows 98 and 98SE, and i have XP.....I just need someone to maybe explain in easier terms how to begin downloading music. The instructions are not too clear on how to begin. Thanks to anyone who can help.

it's a 128 MB MP3/WMA Audiovox SMP3-330-128s

If I plug in an extension cord with multiple outlets into my surge protector, will components that I plug into the extension cord still be protected even though they are not directly plugged into the surge protector?

Send Audio & Video Signals Across the Room Without Wires

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...



We have a great 36" Panasonic HDTV on one side of our family room and a great Onkyo receiver on the other side. We want to play the audio of our TV through the stereo. How can I connect the 2 without tearing up our wall to install new wires?

We tried a US Robotics Soundlink, but there is a great amount of background static in the audio. Do you have another suggestion?
