    Talking what is all this about MP3 USB KEY ?


    I am new to MP3 players.
    You might aswell read my 2 small posts before reading this post to understand it :

    "Recommend me your best" - where I ask for people's advice to choose me a gadget (because I don't know what gadget is suitable for my needs) and it mentions what functions I am looking for in that gadget.

    "Some-thing strange about MP3 Players/Recorders !!!" - where I ask some basic questions about MP3 Players.

    I am going to ask the website these questions but usually it takes 7 days for a website to get back and I can't afford to wait that long as I need to buy one immediately and so I need your brilliant helps.

    Anyway, after checking a lot of brands and models I have come across many technical words that I don't understand. I have listed them in BOLD below so please try to explain them to me as much as you can.
    I am not expecting anyone to explain every single technical words which I have listed but if anyone does volunteer to do so then GREAT !!!
    I am not just simply listing the technical words because if I do that then maybe you too won't understand as some-times different websites list different words (which you have never heard or read before) explaining the same thing. And that is why I have listed the "context" aswell as the links so you can check the "technical information" of each MP3 Player/Recorder on the links yourself to check-out the full contexts of each products's technical descriptions.
    Please note that I am not spamming the links because I don't own them and I am not affiliated with them either otherwise I would have listed my referral links.
    Please look-out for the BOLD text for those are the words which I do not understand and need help to understand them and look-out for underlined text because those are my questions.
    Try to answer as much as you can.

    Thank You
