Plug in the Philips mp3 player to your computer. Use a USB cable to make the
connection so you can begin synchronizing your music collection.
Start Windows Media Player. Depending on how your computer is set up,
this program may start automatically when you make the connection with
the MP3 player
Find the Sync tab in the media player window. Click on this tab and open
the Sync screen. The Sync screen has two panes. The left pane is for
the music collection on your computer; the right pane is for the Philips MP3 Player
Choose the songs from your collection that you want to add to theMp3 Player's memory. Check the boxes that are presented by each song title
Click the "Start Sync" button. The files from your computer are being copied onto your MP3 player.
Wait for the sync to complete. You can monitor the progress in the "Windows Media Player" window.
Close the media player program. Unplug your Philips mp3 player from the computer
NOTE:If this doesn't work you might be able to see your player in the MY Computer window.(after you connect it via USB cable) Select the player copy the songs and paste them into the player. Safely remove the device. You should be able to play the songs ..
Let me guess, it didn't do anything becuase it has not reconized the installation of it, this sounds like the same problem i'm facing with my Trio V430 Mp4 player. I would suggest that you get another cord, if you can and if that doesn't work then have your computer checked out for it's USB Ports.
the model you aks about should have come to you with both manual and USB cord. you may find a generic typeA to typeB USB will work though. When connected open Media player and click the tab SYNC to copy music to the device (you can also lower the compression as you don't need CD quality for earphones/mp3, this will give you extra space for songs on your mp3 player)
Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for
about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if
your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install
that before anything.
Down load the firmware on Sansa's website. I have a Sansa 250R and it wouldn't work with the new replacement usb (Griffin) cord I bought at Best Buy. So I bought a Sansa Fuze and the cord that came with it worked on the E250R. Huh? Yeah, go figure...and oh, that replacement Griffin usb cord I bought worked fine with the new Fuze. I came real close to buying a new battery for the E250R but instead invested that money in the Fuze.
i just moved back with my family and do not have my computer though my sister has an ipod USB cord but my sansa MP3 player 6.0GB wont recharge, how can i get my sister's computer to recognize my MP3 player?
I solved the problem on my win98se OS by using the drivers from GPX
from another mp3 player ( MW6347DT ). Before, it did not find the pci
to usb drivers, etc. Now, all the proper drivers are being found.
The MW6347DT driver for win98 can be found here:
