it's weard. my zaf will not play mp3, it is not compatable and yet if you look at the display panel when turned off, you can clearly see the mp3 etched in the display. i think we are all being ripped off! mp3 has been out for years and you can buy a player for peanuts, ( my old man has the bog standard kia picanto and that plays mp3's!) come on vx, what do you say to that?
