This is a mp3 player not a quicktime player if I understood that it does not need quick time.

You use the menu button navigate to the play music button and press menu to select, then it plays wherever you left off, then use the left and right direction buttons to scroll to the next one back or next one forward.

When you are in the menu mode, you can use the left and right direction buttons to scroll to the folder icon and use the menu as the select and it will descend to you folders.

I know it sounds complicated but once you use it a couple of times, it will come easy. And the play and pause key becomes cancel or escape key when you are in menu mode.

But if you say you want to play when the MA566 is connected to the pc, then you should use the MTP mode turn the MA566 as a thumb drive, I found it is much simpler and less confusion - Winodws itself gets confused very easily.

Then you just navigate to the thumb drive to the songs and click to play them.

** Important, this is more than a caution, Windows tend to kill thumb drive's FAT table, that is another reason, not safe with Media player or autoplay.
** ALWAYS USE THE GREEN SAFE REMOVAL MODE TO STOP THE THUMB DRIVE BEFORE REMOVING ANY THUMB DRIVE FROM A LIVE WINDOW SESSION - OR ELSE TURN OFF THE ENTIRE COMPUTER BEFORE REMOVAL.
** WINDOWS KEEPS THE FILE ALLOCATION TABLE, AND KEEP A +5VDC TO THE THUMB DRIVE. BY CHOOSING THE SAFE REMOVAL, WINDOWS WILL FLUSH AND REWRITE THE FAT TABLE, AND STOP THE +5VDC NOT TO GO TO THE THUMB DRIVE SO THAT YOU CAN REMOVE ONCE IF POP-UP TO SAY == SAFE TO REMOVE.

i hope it helps, and believe me, first time disconnect may be luck if it still works, second time, again super luck, but many people didn't even get the first chance.

I am not responsible for any damages or data loss.

I want to put music on my eclipse mp3 player 180SL 4g. I have CD's. Please HELP. I am a performance artist and I need to practice in preparation for an upcoming event.


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player after you have connected the USB cable tothe MP3 player and the computer.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting musicfiles to mp3 file format :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r5798418-creating_transferring_mp3_music_files

Error Message


This just sounds to me like you have a slight error. You may need to update your firmware/drivers or formatting.

One of those solutions should fix your problem.

To update your firmware you will need to visit your mp3 players manufacture, I have found your firmware all you will need to do is visit this link and download the firmware/drivers -

http://www.sandisk.com/driverdownload/index.asp

Once your on the website choose your mp3 player ect.. then click download.

If that doesn't do the trick my final solution is to format your mp3 player then update the firmware/drivers.

To format a basic way follow these steps. First click on "Start" - then go to "My Computer" - then look for your mp3 player if the name hasn't been customized it will come under the name of "Removable Disk" - once you've found it right-click on it then click on "Format".

Once you've formatted then do the first solution surgested. which was install the firmware/drivers. Once you've done that upload music back on to your mp3 player then see if the problems be fixed.

Good luck. Hope my solutions were helpful.

If you don't how to format follow these steps.

Click on "Start" - "My Computer" - look for something called "Removavle Disk" which should be your mp3 player. Once you've found that right click on it and click "Format". Once format is complete then go to the site and update the drivers.
