Default My New Cowon D2

After a long wait through the holiday season and the shipment to arrive, it got here just a few days ago

So far I'm impressed with sound quality and battery life. I was hoping the flash game compatibility would be larger (and no I don't want to get a DS/PSP because I don't have enough pocket space)

A few people thought the D2 was a camera

Here is my break down of the good and the bad about the player in my opinion.

  • UMS!!!!!
  • Great Sound Quality
  • Amazing Battery Life
  • Boots up in 5 seconds, even with SDHC card!
  • 16GB Internal Memory
  • SDHC expansion slot
  • SDHC integrates with main memory, Creative why can't you do this?
  • File and Folder browsing
  • FM Radio, FM Recording, Mic, Text viewer, Notepad, Flash Support, Picture viewing, and Cideo support is all a plus

  • Videos need to be downsized
  • Flash player doesn't play too many games
  • BUG: I couldn't delete any songs (something about not being able to delete from music menu?)
  • When player turns off, the position of the song is not remembered. Thus song starts from beginning. (Fix: main menu -> settings -> general -> check resume)

I'm going to separate these "bads" because they are mainly relating to in car usage.
  • Touch Screen (not bad feature, but dangerous for car usage )
  • No dedicated skip buttons (I even have the volume buttons skip to next songs, but that only works with player on hold)
  • Car USB charger puts the player into charging mode and cannot play music
  • Have to manually turn the player on every time I start the car, then have to manually go to Play menu and click play.
Now if Cowon makes the little update to the firmware to allow the player to Automatically turn on when and start playing music when it receives external power (not usb), then I will be a happy camper.

Other then that the player is pretty solid. I had my expectations a little higher, but typing this list out made me realize that it has a lot more things that I wanted then the little bad things.


-Insignia Pilot 8GB - Dead , Screen is not easily replaceable at all
-Cowon D2 16GB - The Pilot Replacement
