    not really sure this is the place for this, but it seemed like the right spot at the time.

    so....I just got the Soundwave MP3 player (blue version) today. lo and behold, the instructions are in Japanese! I have enough trouble with english sometimes, so these instructions are useless. That, and I am pretty much of a non-tech kinda guy ((33rpm in an MP3 world kinda thing).

    My question? simple. How does the damned thing work? I see a battery case, but can I plug it into the wall somewhere? any of you have the thing, and use it, help a fellow out if you please?

    Thanks

    I take it you don't buy imported TFs often? Music Label Soundwave was made for the Japanese market, hence the japanese instructions.

    I personally don't have him, but I do know you need a memory card to store MP3's on it and play them in Soundwave.

    *edit*

    Oh, and love your collection, just saw the pics. Lots of G1 goodness in there!

    I haven't actually used mine because I haven't gotten the SD cards in the mail yet, but I imagine the way you use it is:

    1. Load the SD card with some MP3s, I plan to use a card reader with my PC to accomplish this.
    2. Unscrew the battery cover and stick some batteries in it. Replace battery cover.
    3. Load the SD card into the slot, (make sure you're loading the card in correctly).
    4. Press play.

    Hopefully my card will arrive in the mail tonight, I can try it out and let you know if no one has posted proven instructions yet.

    I dont have time to go through everything at the moment, but if you search MP3 or MusicLabel Soundwave on the boards here, you'll find everything you're looking for. There was a thread that detailed the button functions as well as the most other information needed to succesfully operate MP3 SW.

    Yeah, from what I understand, Music Label Soundwave is a ridicilously simple MP3 player. I don't think it even has repeat or shuffle?

    well, so far I think its a 100 bucks blown between the MP3 player and the card. It works, but its not very useful as much of anything other than a backup, as well as a cool addition to my collection I guess. Neat idea, but not done that well in the long run. Plugged it into my car, and only got one channel. listening to Mahler or Mozart out of one speaker does not make for good listening.

    and Hook, thanks. I am trying to redo my display, but space is limited (by the wife!!)

    I think most fans get him more for just the figure than for its mp3-player functionality. IMO that's a big waste for the cost though, it's a cool figure and all, but sort of basic and imo not worth more than $20 just as a figure.
