There's no need to install any software on your computer. Simply plug the unit into your USB port and it appears as an external device. Then you can drag your files straight on! Because of this, you can put files on and take them off from any computer running Windows, Mac OS or Linux. There's no restrictions, no limitations - just drag on what you like, and drag off what you don't! Because of this you can use your player to store other data files as well, so you no longer need to carry around a USB drive.
If you're bored with the music you have on your device, you can tune in to FM radio stations. If you like the song that's playing on the radio, simply hit the 'record' button and the unit will record it directly to MP3/WMA for you to listen to whenever you like!
Amazing Sound Quality
Cowon is the only company that includes BBE software in their players. BBE technology allows the unit to automatically increase the quality of the music, giving them the best sound quality out of any portable media players available. Couple this with a fully adjustable equilizer and you've got an amazing sound wherever you are.
Huge Format Support
Cowon products support a huge range of audio formats, including MP3, OGG, WMA, ASF, FLAC and WAV, giving you the flexibility to use whichever file type you prefer.
You can record music directly to your device without the use of a computer. This is especially useful for people who want to take music from their old cassette tapes or records - simply plug a 3.5mm cable into the headphone jack of your stereo, and hit record. Your music will be instantly recorded to MP3 making it easy to burn to CD when you transfer it back to your computer later. (Note, the Cowon D2 requires an optional accessory for line-in recording)
You can record anything, anywhere, with the built-in microphone. Record notes, lectures and meetings to listen to them later.
Easily view your digital photos in JPEG format on the unit's screen. You can even zoom in for a closer look.
The Cowon A3 and Q5W allow direct playback of most video formats, including DIVX and WMV files. For other models, the included JetShell software allows you to convert your videos into a format playable by your device. You can then play videos as simply as you can listen to music.
Open your .txt files on the go - ideal for keeping notes, addresses, to-do lists or even reading e-books.
Cowon frequently releases firmware updates for their players. These can improve the speed and stability of the systems, as well as adding new features. Updates can be downloaded free from the Cowon website at www.cowon.co.nz .
