IIRC we discussed this player around a year ago. If you can't unlock the firmware, you could always pop off the case and use it with a normal clip, but I doubt it has a little hole for the expansion slot. While I find a clear case a very cool idea and certainly would have considered buying it over the black ones I currently own if SanDisk had made them available. I can’t see what anyone would smuggle into a prison in such a small package other than drugs and from what I read drugs are already available in prisons already.

Actually, it looks like it has a microSD card slot on the side of the player. Cool.

Planned obsolescence with a captive audience.

I looked it up when this came up before and what I found was a Bureau Of Prisons pdf for the federal system. http://www.bop.gov/policy/progstat/4500_008.pdf You could try checking with the state prison system to see if they have a similar program.

The rules for the player requirements outline a standardized USB plug so that they can be charged at a common station. They also state features like microsd cards and microphones have to be deactivated for security purposes. That makes think what looks like a card slot is probably covered by the case but the pic makes it look open.
