Last summer, I made this case for my Rio Nitrus mp3 player after not being able to find any good cases for it (since most of the cases out on the market are designed for iPods).

I used blue duct tape to make a duct tape sheet, put it around my player and sealed the back and bottom with more duct tape. I had to cut a bunch of holes in it to allow me to use my mp3 player without taking the case off (so for the power button, headphone jack on top, wheel for selecting songs, toggle for play/stop/pause). I lined each cut area with more duct tape. Since I use the toggle the most and it happens to be red, I lined that hole with red duct tape. I cut out a window for the screen and inserted clear plastic (actually a piece of clear sticky book cover folded over onto itself) and taped it in securely.

The mp3 player inserts from the top and the case has a blue duct tape flap with self-adhesive velcro underneath it, so the flap folds over at the top of the back of the plaer.

hah so cute! make sure you don't leave it in heat though cause the duct tape will melt and your mp3 player will get all gooey.

moonunit426 - hah, I've already left my mp3 player out in the heat and had it get all gooey. A couple swipes using Goo Gone, and all was better! (and, the Goo Gone made it smell like citrus too)

i love the fact that you have a rio player, too. sooooo many people have ipods! oi. makes me happy i have my little red rio.

unfortunately, i have not been able to find a case for mine, either. maybe mine would be better suited to a little drawstring pouch, or something. it's sort of an odd shape...

I feel you! I have a Samsung YEPP YH-820MC, and almost the entire front of the player is buttons and a screen so even most of the generic cases don't work.

I love that you cut holes in the right spots on the case. I would definately have done the same, I like easy activation of my hold button, for sure.
