how do I delete music off of a coby mp829 player


I don't have this particular device. Although some players will let you delete files from the device alone, some won't. But an mp3 player should show up on your desktop computer as an external memory storage device when connected via USB. You can open it and delete music files by dragging to trash, or by right-clicking and selecting Delete. (Windows, but probably similar on Mac).

can a Dell Dimension 3000 connect to 5.1 surround sound


If your Laptop has a "Latitude C/Port Advanced Port Replicator" Then this Port Replicator connects Dell Latitude notebooks to peripheral devices such as a monitor, printer, keyboard and mouse. To accomplish this, connect your peripheral devices to the Dell port replicator itself, and leave them connected to it. Then connect your notebook to the port replicator to access the devices without having to attach them individually each time you want to use them. You can also set up speakers on the Dell Latitude C/Port port replicator to provide improved quality audio.

Follow following steps:
1) Place your Dell Latitude notebook in your C/Port Advanced Port Replicator and turn on the notebook using the power button.
  • 2) Place the speakers you want to connect to the port replicator on either side of the port replicator according to the Left and Right (L and R) labels on the speakers.

  • 3) Plug the audio line connector from the speakers into the audio line out plug on the port replicator. The audio line out plus is on the right-hand side of the port replicator base next to the infrared port, directly opposite the notebook ejection lever.

  • 4) Plug the power cable from the speakers into a power outlet if needed. Battery-powered speakers will not require this. Turn on the speakers following the manufacturer's instructions.

  • 5) Open your preferred music or audio software (such as Windows Media Player or iTunes) on your Dell Latitude notebook and play an audio file to hear the newly-attached speakers.

    Hi, I have a new one sharp Aquos lc-32d47ua i dont know how to use the usb i read the manual but it talk about a upgrade to the tv i just want to watch movies and music from my usb how can i do it. Thanks


    As you've found from looking at the manual, the USB connector on the TV is only for installing software updates to the set. It's not a source input that you can send movies and music over, so the correct answer to your question is "you can't". At least not directly.

    While you can't plug a USB device containing programs directly into the TV, you can use a computer as a program source. The TV has a VGA connector (Input 4) for video from the computer, and an audio input jack for connecting the computer's headphone output. So what you could do is plug your USB device into a laptop computer and connect the computer to the TV. The computer would be doing the actual playback of the programming on the USB device (using Windows Media Player, Winamp or your other player of choice), while the TV acts only as a display device. The manual explains how to select the computer input and adjust the TV resolution.

    How do I Put Music on an NW-E003F Sony MP3 Player?

    The Sony Walkman E003F is a small portable device resembling a flash drive. This Walkman has 1 GB of storage which accommodates about 685 songs. When the battery is at capacity, the Walkman can play back up to 28 hours of audio. The small player has a built-in USB connector to make downloading convenient. If you want to add songs to your MP3 player, you must use Windows Explorer to download MP3-, AAC- and WMA-formatted audio to the device.

    Instructions



    Remove the USB cap on the player to reveal the USB plug.


    Insert the USB plug on the player into the computer's USB port.


    Select "My Computer" from the desktop "Start" menu.


    Double-click on the "WALKMAN" drive folder to open it.


    Double-click to open the "MUSIC" folder.


    Drag the audio file from the save location on the computer and drop it in the "MUSIC" folder. The songs will load and play in the order that they are dropped into the folder.

    Hope it helped.
