Question about Sears TGE MP3 Player

Saying my music is there but its not

I spent hours putting the songs that I wanted on my mp3 player, hit the sync button, then it told me it was ok to take it out. Then when I went to listen to it there were no songs on it. I had used it once before and everything worked fine. Now I have NO idea whats going on with it. I even tried to clear the list and its saying there is nothing on it, yet its saying I only have 41mb left out of 512. So its like my music IS there but it's not.......*sigh* Please can someone help?......Thanks!

You downloaded .mp3 files, yes? If you filled your player with, say, .m4a (AAC) files, your player wouldn't know how to play, the player wouldn't show you the songs (not as songs, at least), and yet there would be no space left.

Plug your player back into your computer and use a file manager (Windows Explorer, say) to see all the files that are on the player. (The player looks like another disk drive to your computer. In Windows you'll see it listed in "My Computer") I imagine you'll see all the songs you loaded, since your player is almost full.

Quick test: Find an MP3 file on your computer (maybe one of the songs you had on your player when "everything worked fine"; the file name will end in '.mp3') and load it on your player. Now your player shows one song, yes? Most likely the songs you loaded on your player aren't MP3-compressed files. Less likely, you downloaded copy-protected songs onto a player that doesn't support DRM (digital rights management). Unlikely, though possible, is that your player malfunctioned. See if it's the likely or less-likely problem before you reformat the player (and why should that help anyway, poster, or is that your idea of a joke?).

Do all the filenames end in '.mp3'? If not, you've found the problem. I'll bet you used iTunes to rip some CDs. iTunes uses AAC compression by default, which is great, but AAC isn't MP3. Open iTune's "Preferences" (Ctrl+,) and select the "Importing" tab. Using AAC? You'll need to recompress your music as MP3 for your player. Change "Import using" to "MP3 Encoder", select the songs you want on your player, and "Convert Selection to MP3". Now you have two files for each song you just converted, one AAC-compressed (.m4a) and one MP3-compressed (.mp3). Now clear all the .m4a files off of your player and replace them with their .mp3 cousins.

If the songs on your player were all .mp3 files, you may have DRM (digital rights management) issues. Did you buy the songs online? Are the songs you downloaded protected? Did that song that used to play fine, the one you used in the "quick test" above, still play fine? Then no help for you. Sorry. You can't play protected music on a player without DRM support.

All the songs are MP3-formatted and not protected? Try playing the files that are on your player using the media player that is on your computer. (Your player is just a disk drive, remember?) Can you play your songs? Then reformatting your player isn't likely to help without upgrading the firmware, which still isn't likely to help.

How do i put music on my digital touch mp3/mp4


There are a few different ways to do this. One is to connect it to USB, then go to my computer, find the drive with your player on it. Leave this window open, and then go and open up your music folder, click and hold on the song you want, and drag the folder over to the file folder with you player on it, and let go of button and it will be added. To add all your songs from music folder, click left top song so it is highlighted, then press and HOLD the shift key, the scroll to bottom right last song, click on it. Now all songs should be highlighted, then drag and drop all these files to your mp3/mp4 file folder and they will be added.
The other way is to get windows media player 11. Sync your device with sync button, create a playlist with all your songs, then add them to sync list and hit sync and they will be added to your player

How to put songs in this gogear mp3 player?


Open Windows Media Player. Hit the "Rip" tab at the top and put in the CD(s) you want to record. You can put in as many as you have hard disk space for. Each one takes 3-5 minutes to "Rip". When you are through, you will need to plug in your player via the included usb cable. Let the computer "find" it. Then, you will go back to Media Player and hit the "Sync" tab at the top. When it comes up you will see a list of the all music you recorded. You can drag and drop music from the center column to the right column under where your device is listed. If you drag whole albums, whole albums will be transferred. Once you are done, hit the "sync" button at the bottom right and wait for the fireworks to end. The "syncing" process goes very quickly. Now play music!
