Default Cowon J3 Questions and Answers

Hi everyone,

I recently purchased the Cowon J3 from Canada, I think it is the gretest device out there of its kind and have enjoyed all of the advertised features without any problems. The only problem ive been having is finding information or answers on the device. the manual it comes with is extremely basic and is very lacking of detail. I have two questions I would like to start this thread off with and hopefully others with questions can find this thread useful when googleing the question is useless.

First question is is it possible to put a password on the Cowon J3 because it is not in the settings or I just can not find it, every other device I have used seems to have some sort of password so I would imagine Cowon would to.

My second question is that when converting mp3 files to FLAC in Jet Audio (software provided with J3 device) I noticed the file went from 4-5mb to 30-80mb, my concern was although I am aware that FLAC is a much bigger file, how does the converter create so much from so little, and I have noticed a HUGE difference in sound quality between the MP3 and FLAC files, but is it alright to convert or should I download original FLAC files from the start.

Thank you for all your help and time I hope this thread becomes useful to others as much as it will be to me.

Peace

First question : I have no idea, but I don't think so.

Second question : Converting from lossy to lossless is a big no no - details are not gained (fact), but actually lost in the conversion process (afaik). The only thing you get is a larger file size with no benefits... Download the FLAC's from the start, if you must have FLACs.

Default Thanks

thanks for the help, i was thinking the same thing when i converted the mp3 to FLAC i didn't understand how it would uncompress and become a much higher quality audio file. Also i just realized i posted this thread in the wrong section, not sure if that's a problem.

Thank you for your time, by the way, do you know where I could download full FLAC files, that would be great!

Well, there are the usual sources... And some artists offer their full albums in flac for free online, usually indies. Like Girltalk - Feed The Animals is online in FLAC for free.
