Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

I have just bought the Go Gear digital audio video player SA 3245 which clearly states will play WMA music files, the quick start guide details the standard ripping of CDs via Windows Media player etc. which isn't a problem, but when I transfer the files and try to play them, I get an error message "File format not supported"! Have I bought a faulty player or am I missing something blindingly obvious? I would be grateful if you could advise, thanks.

My mp3 says file format error when I try to listen to the music.


It's possible that the file type of the music file(s) you are trying to listen to are not a supported format of your mp3 player. Your player only supports MP3 and WMA audio formats. You should check the music files you are tying to play to confirm they are of a compatible format.

    I think you need a third party software, just convert your videos to the format which support by your player.
    Here is a detail tutorial about how to convert almost all popular video formats even high definition video for playback on your portable multimedia players such as iPod touch/video/nano/classic, Zune, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, Xbox 360, PS3, Archos, iRiver PMP Player, Creative Zen, Pocket PC, and Mobile Phone etc.

    I need help in downloading music to my MP3 player. I have a Creative Zen Vplus


    Hi
    According to Creative Labs, you should either be using the Creative Media Explorer if you are new to MP3 and WMA ripping and want to build up a library or prefer to manage your Zen player as a removable disk drive, or using the Creative MediaSource Player/Organizer if you "frequently need to playback or organize music in your computer".
    The Zen player can handle three primary types of audio files too, the common MP3 format, WMA format and the more unusual WAV format. It's quite likely that your existing audio files are in one of these formats, probably WMA if you've been using Windows Media Player to rip your CDs. If you've purchased your music, it'll be in WMA DRM, that is, a version of the WMA format that includes digital rights management (so you can't just email a copy of the audio file to your pals once you've purchased and downloaded it). Those can play on the Creative Zen too, fortunately.
    To actually hook up your Creative Zen MP3 player to your computer, you'll need the included USB cable, which should connect as shown in this spiffo Creative illustration:
    http://www.askdavetaylor.com/0-blog-pics/creative-zen-audio-usb.png (chek the above figure)
    Once you've hooked it up, the Zen unit should automatically go into USB connection mode (wouldn't be very zen-like if it didn't!) and then you should be able to find the device by opening up My Computer on your desktop.
    When you really dig into the Zen user's guides, you'll find that they recommend Creative Media Explorer for transfering audio files: just click on the "Import Media" button in the application, find the MP3, WAV or WMA files already on your computer, and it should be easy to then copy them onto the player.
    That should get you going.

    Thanks for contacting fixya.com

    I have copied some wma music files onto it but it will not play. It says, No authority (and has DRM in the top left corner)


    It's a pain but if you can burn those files from windows media player to an 'audio disc' not an mp3 disc and then re-import them into windows or whatever you use from that audio disc as mp3 files they will shed their DRM's. DRM's stand for digital rights management so be sure your not infringing on copyrights when you do this and only do it for music that you actually own.

    Won't paly WMA files that I bought online!


    I remember reading somewhere that if you upgrade your firmware of your H340 from US to international to get video you lose the ability to play DRM music. I from this I would that the international version can't play the copy protected files. I am not sure of the legalities in your location, but you may be able to work around the copy protection. Maybe a google search would give you some hints.
