The Walkman is compatible with Windows XP (SP2), XP (SP3), Vista, and Windows 7. Plus, for added convenience, the player lets you drag and drop your audio files from iTunes for Windows, Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer.

      Comments about Sony 2GB W Series Walkman MP3 Player (Orange):

      I had the previous version (W252) of this MP3 player and decided to buy the W262 because of its reduced size. Balance is greatly improved, the earbuds are much more stable and do not move off of the ears while running, like to old ones. Sound quality is also improved (maybe because of it staying in the right place and not sliding down during exercise).

      I am an ex-user of iPod Shuffles. I used to own 4 of them, from 2nd to 4th generations, and they all lived for just a couple of months until they died since they are not moisture resistant. Thumbs up for Sony that is probably conquering new customers like me that could not make iPod their MP3 player for exercising.

      I highly recommend this MP3 player to everybody who needs a rugged and stable player to listen to music during impact exercise, without the annoying wires all around your body.
