Hey guys,

I'm thinking of heading to Costco tomorrow and buying a cheap (about $100) MP3 player for the gym. Question: Do MP4s work on all MP3 players? I ask because I buy a lot of music on iTunes. If I can't listen to my iTunes purchases on my MP3 players, it will be pretty much useless.

I'm looking at these models specifically (because that's what they have): Sanyo 512 MB Portable Digital Audio Player, Dell DJ™ Ditty 512 MB Digital Jukebox or the SanDisk® Sansa. Will these play MP4s?


Thanks,
Ian

Hmmm....why not just use companies with a different format, like bonfire or realtunes?

I'm pretty sure they don't. Unless the company specifies they will work I don't think they will.

You can always convert them though.

No, but you can convert the iTMS songs to MP3s by burning them to a CD then ripping the CD back onto your computer as MP3 (all can be done in iTunes).

One of the reasons that the download companies use MP4 is that it supports DRM protection. If that's the case here, you'll need a player that supports DRM to use them on it.
