Re: Write protection

Unfortunately the GPX M2104 manual is not available online(due to large size...), so all I can help with is some advice that might seem like the obvious, or some referals- 1. Make sure the HOLD is in off position. Slide the HOLD switch to the opposite side of the word HOLD. Then connect the player back and try to transfer/add/delete the songs you want. 2. If you have a digital form of the manual(please submit it here) search for "write protect" on it(shift+control+f on adobe), or look in the troubleshooting section which is generaly towards the end of the manual. 3. Try resetting the device. If you don't know how, again - it should be on the manual, and if it isn't then unplugging it and disconnecting it from all power sources for a few days sometimes does the trick. you can also try doing it on another PC, or another OS just to make sure it really is the GPX malfunctioning. Good luck

Can't delete write protected files

Try this method to delete your write protected files

Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, etc. from MP3 Player
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal
Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on
"Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that
you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want,
release, right click and then click on "Delete"
Now your mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player.

The "please sync" refers to songs that are part of a subscription service, like Rhapsody, or Yahoo Music. If you have one of there, you need to connect to your account and update your license(s). If no, the problem is probably with you own music files. See if the following sounds familiar; - You are using some music from your own Cd's. - You used Windows Media Player to copy the cd's to your computer. - You have not manually changed any of the "default" settings in Windows Media Player. If these apply, by default Windows Media Player "copy protects" your music, giving you the "please sync" error message. To resolve this, you will need to change the "copy protect" option from WMP. Tools>Options>Rip Music, un-check the box for "copy protect". Then delete the songs on your player that are from cd's. Then, re-copy them to your PC. Then, re-transfer them to your device. You can add to this question for more assistance. Best of Luck.

Playing a song?

Did you use your own cd's? If so, did you use Windows Media Player to copy (rip) them to your computer? Windows Media Player, by default, has "copy protect my music" selected. To remove this, in Windows Media Player select Tools>Options>Rip Music and un-check the copy protect my music mark. You will need to delete the music you already transferred, then re-copy the music without protection, then re-transfer them to your device. Best of Luck.
