Is there a DAP that will display lyrics-- textfile or inside tags, or something-- while music is playing on the DAP?

I'm pretty sure the Sony Vaio Player (with the latest firmware upgrade) allows for lyric viewing.

Most new Samsung players can, but too much work to get them properly displayed.

If there was a way for an mp3 player to load the lyrics to your songs from the internet onto your mp3 player when you connect it to your computer, I would be looking like this

EDIT: The iPod can, but it takes a lot of work. You have to type in all your lyrics in seperate notes in the notes section, find the one you are looking for when that song is playing, then find the next one when the next song comes on.

IAudio players do...you use the included Lyric Database Manager software to either find lyrics or add them to your songs and then load them to your player.

wow i never knew that mp3 players did that. Thats a cool feature, but it seems like it would be hard to set up, and it would take up more space on the hard-drive.

I have an ifp 795 and i use the iRiver Lyric Database (LDB)
I looks up the lyrics on the net and then it will add them to either OGG, MP3 or WMA files(it does not work with VBR MP3s).

P.S:The lyrics only make the files size about 2kb more.

doesntn the lyrics need timestamps or something like that? Unless the lyrics already have these timestamps, it seems like ahassle to do the timestamps manually.

Note, most Korean MP3 (iAudo/Cowon, iRiver, Samsung) players has this function. Heck, the iRiver's IMP line of CD Players also have this function as well!!

And yes, they need proper timestamping to display properly, which is the biggest drawback with entering the lyrics yourself.

(This I think has to do with the whole Karaoke/Sing-along dealies. I think.

All the lyrics from the iRiver LDB come with the correct timestamps.

The notes section? Like in the ID3 tags, or is it some sort of separate system?

Go to extras from the main menu. One of the options there is notes.
