 Is It Possible To Download A Virus To My MP3 Player?


It can be possible to "infect" your MP3 player, but more so when it's being used as a mass storage device.  Using Virus Protection Software will reduce or eliminate the chances of getting a virus on your PC and transferring it to your MP3 player.


Some Anti P2P contractors have been accused of file modification in such a manner that mp3 files have been modified to redirect to an http server, causing pop-ups and adware to run on the PC used to download the MP3's.  Files that appear to be audio files or video clips have been stuffed with adware and pop-ups.  While this will have an impact on the PC, it will not effect the MP3 player.
