Question about Coby CX-C21 Personal Cassette Player

Cassette vs MP3.

I have had a walkman for a few years and have been satisfied with it. Lately, all the people around me encourage me to buy an MP3 player instead. I'm not sure: An MP3 player has more functions, but a cassette played is much cheaper and tapes can be recorded very easily for someone who's not a techie, as I am. What do you think? I am not a computer person, and am afraid it will be too difficult for me to handle.

Yancyyy, Your conflict is understood. These MP3 players really do seem scary for us non-tech people. My granddaughter bought me one for Christmas and I was pretty scared. But she taught me how to use it and overall I am pretty satisfied. I think it's worth the price. Of course, it's only my opinion. If you don't think you have someone who will be able to help you get along with your player, perhaps you should stick to your old cassette player. Good luck!

Another thing to consider is the sound quality aspect. You will get a much greater level of fidelity from a high-end Walkman player than any mp3 player can give you.

If sound is important then I would stick with what you have. Not always is newer better in the world of audio reproduction...

Who makes durabrand dvd players

Durabrand is made by either Lenoxx, Alco, or Funai.

It is mainly a branding name and so other companies may be involved but Durabrand products always seem to be a few years behind the times, for example they still make analogue radios with manual tuning dials and cassette player walkmans (they sell these right next to their extensive range of 64 and 128 mb mp3 players!). The only up side is that ASDA seem to have a fairly liberal returns policy so when your Durabrand product breaks you can just return it and get a new one.

My walkman is dead

shops don't give warranty on mp3 players more than 2yrs max. and even if it still were in warranty, the warranty would've been void when the player got washed and tumble-dried.

try removing the batteries, letting it dry for a few days and using new batteries afterwards. if this doesn't work, the mp3-player is done for...

My Sony Walkman WM -SR10 is not recording and the cassette tape is not working. Only the radio is player. And I cannot get another one to buy even its not the same. Can you help me

Hello aga2958,
I think you need to visit maintenance center to fix that cause its hardware problem.
But you can check somethings before u visit them .. like:
1. If you are using Batteries to power up the Walkman .. be sure the batteries are full charged.
2. Try to power on the Walkman by Adapter 3 Volts.
3. Be sure the tapes you are using are fine into other Cassette.
Thanks for using FixYa.

iTunes records in a format that isn't recognized by the walkman. the file extension for iTunes is WMF which is a Windows Metafile. You'll need to convert it to mp3 to listen to it.

WM-D6C Battery holder

Because of the age of the unit, Sony will not carry that part. However, keep an eye on E-bay and yard sales and thrift stores and hopefully you can pick one up real cheap. Good Luck
