If you are looking for an mp3 player this is the one to buy.
Christine Corbett
The software on the computer showed that the MP3 player was downloading the music, but the MP3 player itself was not.
Jen Patey
I've tried putting in new batteries, but nothing will get it to turn back on.

Here's my assessment of things I like and don't like about the Rio 600:
Pros:
*Small, lightweight *No Skipping *Decent sound quality (the above apply to pretty much any portable MP3 player) *WMA Support *USB interface for fast transfer of songs *Future support for 340MB IBM Microdrive *Possible future AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) support *Low price
Cons: *Rio Audio Manager software is extremely cumbersome to use *Supplied earphones do not sound good and will have to be replaced *You cannot distinctly discern by touch what button you're pushing on the round pad. You'll end up stopping or pausing tracks when you want to skip to the next track. *Only 32MB RAM standard with no upgrades available at this time *Larger than previous model Rio 500 *No belt clip *No recording for FM tuner
The Rio 600 is your basic MP3 player. WMA support is nice, but because of Digital Rights Management, the WMA format is difficult to deal with and I'm not going to convert all my MP3s to WMA. Someone should have tested the Rio 600's button pad for usability. You can't feel what button you're pushing and because the Rio 600's body is curvy, it's hard to discern up/down/left/right without looking at it. You also have to use your fingernail to push the tiny center button or you'll accidentally press on of the up/down/left/right buttons as well.
As of right now, I would recommend the Rio 600 over any other MP3 player currently available, not so much because it's so good in itself, but it's good when you compare it to the others. The things I most wish it had right now are memory packs and better software.

Well, I was going to give it around a 3.75, but since there's no option, I left it at four. The Rio line of MP3 players is overall a very high-quality, top-of-the-line series of devices. The Rio600 in general is no exception, but I do have a few issues with it...
The funky shape isn't that bad... I have a Nomad II also, and the shapes actually are quite ergonomically sound, for both players. It does look funny though. The clip-on faceplate idea is questionable... Why not just sell it in several colors?
I don't care for the clip-on backpack idea... I feel that SmartMedia cards are more universally compatible. Sure, not as much upgrade potential with flash cards, in comparison with the 300mb+ capacities of the backpacks, but I usually steer towards more mainstream parts, away from proprietary designs.
The player is easy to operate, but I prefer the old circle-dial controls on the Rio 300. The "joypad" is close, but no cigar. ;)
32mb really is not enough for a typical person... Most people today are still using mp3 (myself included), and a half hour of music just doesn't cut it... Even using lower bitrates, you just lose sound quality. 64mb is a minimum for mainstream mp3 players... Big slip-up Diamond/S3/SonicBLUE. Sure, you could upgrade it with a memory backpack, but that brings up my problems with proprietary hardware...
Overall, a good player. I want to see the Rio800 when it comes available... Until then, this is a fairly good player. A word of advice to those buying though... Seriously look at the Rio 500 or the Nomad II. The Rio 500 might not be as ergonomically sound, but it's a proven, tried-and-tested 64mb player. The 600 has a bit more ease-of-use, but the 500 has better features.

The Diamond Rio 600 is a paradox. It's twice as good as anything currently on the market, but half as much as you need. There's something very right about each of the three components of the system--headphones, body and software--and yet there are serious deficiencies with each part.
The Rio's headphones are marginally tinny at any volume, and stressed at higher volumes, but good enough for a portable you'll probably use in a noisy environment anyway. To be sure, other headphones will be needed to fully realize the sound possibilities of the Rio, but the ones included give you at least the beginnings of great sound. Their rather odd, around-the-ear construction is both sensible and awkward. They're perfect for using while working out, because they never fall out, regardless of how vigorously one behaves. But they're hard to get used to because they do take a comparatively longer time to put in than other headphones. Serious audiophiles will dismiss them outright; those of us just looking for workout music will probably get used to their oddness.
The body of the Rio is its clear strength. It's about the size of a pager-but lighter. Of all the portable music solutions I shopped--CD, cassette, and digital alike-this one is the very best in terms of size/quality ratio. It's the best thing I've ever used for working out. It's also the best device currently available in terms of expandability. Though on the surface it seems to have less memory than the Rio 500, and than many other newer .mp3 players, it has the capacity for adding on 340 mb. Also, the fact that it takes the .wma (Windows Media) format effectively means that you can store what would be the equivalent of 64mb of songs in the .mp3 format
There are some reservations, though.
