I’m still getting a lot of requests for the English user’s guide that came with my 512MB Hello Kitty MP3 player, especially now that quite a few people found the player under their Christmas tree. Rather than continue to email everyone separately, I’ve decided to go ahead and post the guide here. There are several iterations of the player available now, including one with Kitty’s cheeks (instead of her bow) glowing red/green, which may or may not apply to the following set of instructions.
I typed the manual exactly as I received it. It was originally translated by someone who I assume is a non-native English speaker, so some of it requires a bit of deciphering.
