Re: putting songs onto it

You might not have a type of file that is supported by your mp3 player. I use online converters and change them all to wma because our players can play that and they are smaller than mp3s.

You can also try to Refresh the Database on the player. Go to Settings/Extra/Database Refresh. Some times the player needs to manually refreshed in order to see the new songs.

Try taking out the battery before you sync or load the songs.

Re: putting songs onto it

You can try loading songs using different software, or direct through the windows explorer. Try doing a reset. If nothing seems to work, then install the driver found on this page: If all fails, take it to the shop where you bought it, or to one that sells, and see what they can do for you. maybe its still on warranty? Good luck

How do you transfer songs on Sony Bean MP3 Player to a computer. I don't have the computer that I used to use for it. When I plugged it in to my new computer, nothing came up.

These types of devices are not made to be able to transfer songs from the device to a computer as to reduce the likelihood of illegal copying of songs - It might be a case where you just need to put all the songs back onto you computer and in future make sure you backup all your data. I would listen to the Sony technician.

It says formatting my mp3 will erase music on it but i want to get the songs off of my mp3 and put them on my computer is it possible?Will the music then be on the computer and just erased off of the mp3?

Yes, formatting your MP3 Player will erase everything on it other then the required system files.

If the MP3 Player is USB Compatible, plug the USB into the MP3 Player usb port, then plug the other end of the USB into your computer (provided your computer has a usb port). Depending on if the MP3 player needs software to put music on it, it should be easy.
Allow the MP3 Player 1 minute to fully load onto your computer.


1) My Computer
2) Find your MP3 Player, should be something like F: Drive or MP3 Player (depends on the kind).
3) Double click on the icon of your mp3 player.
4) If there is music or anything in there, create a folder on your desktop or where ever you wish to move the music.
5) Highlight every song or anything, and right click drag it into the folder you have just made.
6) Make sure no songs are on the mp3 player.
7) Unplug it, check for songs, and if successful, you should have all your songs off your MP3 player and onto your computer! Double check, then you can format it or do what ever you wish!

Hope I helped :-)

Your songs are in the wrong format - read my "tips and tricks" on song formats, as it is too complicated to explain here. Short answer: convert the songs to Mp3 format.

Unknown songs and artists

You will have to take them off the player,
rip your cd with media player, then BEFORE you sync them to the player, rightclick on the song, choose Advance Tag Editor and rename the song, artist, genre, then you can sync them over with title and name locked in the file.

I-scream mp3 player (AV-1)

This player uses batterey all the time. It can't be charged. Just put a batterey in the port on the back and it will work just fine.

Completely format the player... if that doesnt work, take it to best buy and have their tech take a look. Mine did the same thing, but was fine after I formatted it a couple times.. theyre like a dog.. one little flea leads to thousands of problems...
