Volume control is now on the face of the unit not on the side as the vast majority of the users tend to put it in there pocket and the volume control would rub up or down on the material of there clothing and do a pocket adjust.

The up and down arrow on the 5 way button in the middle serves as the volume controller during playback or FM reception (except when displaying a list screen, such as the song list screen or option menu, etc., or the detailed information screen)

any portable speaker or dock that accepts a standard 3.5mm audio plug for input will work. You just need to connect the headphone jack of the Sony to the input of the speaker or dock.

Question

Playing the E385 MP3 Player Through the Car Radio

Using the Hyundai special cable with an adaptor to connect to the Sony player will a Sony E385 MP3 player play through the radio & allow me to control the player with the radio controls and/or the steering wheel controls. I know it will work with an I pod but I prefer the Sony.

As long as it has an accessory input plug receiver, most vehicles have them now (2001) and over, although my truck does not have one only because it is a very basic model - not even electric windows.

It actually depends on the car stereo and cable that will be connected to the Sony Walkman player. It would be best to contact the manufacturer of the car stereo for compatibility.

It comes with a USB charging cable, I typically charge it by connecting it to the PC that has the songs that I transfer to it and leave it there until I need it.

Question

Rhapsody Compatibility

I am not very technically oriented. A simple question: I have subscribed to Rhapsody as a Rhapsody-to-go member. I have unlimited download privileges. Can I download music as I normally do? I don't understand technical things like DRM or how it differs from a normal MP3. I have an older SONY Walkman MP3 and it works fine on Rhapsody. Will this one work if I buy it. I think Sony is the best.. Also are the songs and artists accessible by alphabetical order like previous MP3 players? Thanks for your help.

yes you can download normally, and yes the songs and artists are accessible by alphabetical order. I have an older SONY also and they are pretty much the same, one thing I did notice tho was when you shut it off and then turn it back on it starts you back at the beginning of your play list as to the old one it starts where you left off.

You can still transfer music files downloaded from Rhapsody. DRM means Digital Rights Management which is a music format. Walkman models sold prior to 2012 support playback of DRM files from various sources. Check your Walkman manual for compatibility. Manuals, Specifications and Warranty information for your Sony product is available online.

Yes, you can use the same cable that charges your ps3 controller on the mp3 player. It is easier to download songs the mp3 player if they are in mp3 format.

Question

Is protective sleeve available?

Is there some kind of protective case or silicone "sleeve" that is available for this MP3 player? I have been able to find them for many other Sony MP3 player models, but not for this model. If I got one of these, I would want to not only protect it, but be able to put a wristband or belt through it to attach to me while I do things.
