As several local storage devices can be connected to the O!Play, "File Copy" is useful to transfer from files (or whole directories) from drive to drive without needing any other computer!

"Preview" can be turned off in the main menu.

Thanks for the review

Is there any chance to make some comparison with WD Live?

I have been hunting for a media player that will cope with my 135GB, 16000 song, music collection. Media Monkey on the computer does it nicely but I really wanted easier communication with my hi-fi system and to be able to play music when the laptop is in use doing graphics or not on at all. Enter the Asus O!Play Air HDP-R3 with a 1TB External HDD......... or so I thought.

Everything that the review writer says is true and it is a good media player, but still not perfect. It has a “Music Shuffle” button on the remote which is supposed to play your music on random, (or shuffle for the Americans). Problem is that when you press the Music Shuffle, sometimes it takes so long to process the tracklist that it just fails and restarts or simply just doesn’t do it.

When it does do the shuffle play list it selects 4000 songs from the library of artists in alphabetical order. So I’m hearing lots of Devo, ELO, Bondi Cigars, ACDC and ABBA but none of Pink Floyd, Xavier Rudd or ZZTop. Bugger!

The other little annoyance is that on the currently playing display, there is no artist title. So when a song comes on that I don’t recognise I can’t check who it is. The song name is there but not the artist. Bugger!

So it’s a good media player but still not exactly what I’m looking for.
