Questions about this item:

rob s  does this walkman have DPC or anything allowing variable playback speed when lsitening to mp3`s?
Shopper  My new MP3 E385 battery does not last 30Hrs play back as claimed. Anyone has the same problem?
JANET N  I don't usually get 30 full hours of playback, but it stays strong for at least 24 hours of use. It may make a difference what kind of headphones you plug in and the listening volume you choose -- ear buds can use less power than headphones with larger speakers to drive, and higher volumes also take more energy. My Walkman is loaded with MP3 files (not video) but I interact with it quite a bit to advance songs or view album art and artist information, which uses extra battery time. I get a full day out of it, then run it down completely as often as I can to ensure the battery gets a complete charge that maintains battery longevity. In all other ways, the Walkman is far better than all other MP3 players I've bought (non-iPod) -- and I've used about 6 of them in all. With the high quality of sound and nice interface, I recommend it to people when they notice it, which happens a lot. It's elegant in style. Even if you don't get a full 30 hours, you made a great choice for the money. Happy listening!
Jerry L  How do you set time alarm? Or a timer? I don't see it under the Home>Settings.
RONALD L  You may have to download the firmware update from COWON. It is a .zip file. After downloading, unzip and place the 3 .bin files in the root directory. (your COWON unit must be connected to your computer). After you transfer the 3 files that were unzipped on your main computer, unplug the COWON unit and turn it on. The firmware update will automatically run by itself.
