Sensory Science's rave:mp 2300 portable digital-media player will be made Mac-compatible by November.

Firmware updates for both the rave:mp 2200 and 2300 can be obtained via download on the Internet.

Sensory Science's director of Internet products, Frank Muniz, said: "Providing Macintosh support for our line of rave:mp players enables millions of Macintosh users to enjoy the numerous benefits and unique features and capabilities not found on competing players.''

The rave:mp 2200 is one of the smallest portable digital-media players, carrying 64MB of built-in memory and a SmartMedia expansion-card slot, boosting memory up to 128MB.

It sports a built-in FM radio, allowing users to program up to 20 channel presets accessible at the touch of a button.
