    I got the Blockbuster exclusive and found an odd thing. I opened it from the sealed package plugged it up to my computer and found two songs already loaded on the thing. Anyone else find something like this? The album they are off of apparently is called Misspelled Marquee and the songs are Only You and I and Misspelled Marquee.
    Kind of odd but I guess they have to go through testing somewhere. Heh.

    Can it be purchased separately? I want one, but I already have the DVD from another store.

    Honestly have no idea. Heck I had to ask for mine as they "apparently" forgot to bring them up to the front. The guy behind the counter looked a little upset that someone was asking for one. Or it could just be me; I have been up since about 4 P.M. yesterday.

    I think this is normal as I had this with other mp3 players too. How does your player look btw?

    Hmm, I went to my local Blockbuster... but the lady said they never even got them delivered and she didn't even know about it.

    Shame really.

    Oh well, I wanted to get the 2-disc set anyway.

    Well, unfortunately, it's a pretty crummy introduction to the field. Only 128MB, which is printed on the package, I believe. That's maybe 20 songs at decent quality. I doubt the playback hardware is any good either.


    Most assuredly. Cheapest things they could get, no doubt about it.

    autobot insignia notwithstanding,that one's probably worth about $15 at most.

    I thought about picking that one up, but I already have an mp3 player, and I rarely use it. Picked up Target's transforming case instead.

    I got mine also. Most Blockbusters only got about 4- 8 per store in my area. Sold out fairly quick.
    All the mp3 have 2 sample songs already on them.
    I've tried mine, charged it up, uploaded a few songs and it works just fine.
    Nothing special, but definately one of those rare items that in the future you will wish you had.
    And not bad for a first MP3 player.

    ... how do you complain about a mp3 player you get for $19.99 or $26.99?

    They even throw in a free copy of Transformers to sweeten the deal!!!

    ..Well, I thought it was funny.
