Accessing my music on my external sd on the lg prada


Double check the file format you have your music saved as. On some lg phones the media player will only read mp3 files. If they are stored as wma files they might not be readable by the phone. Also when you look at the memory card on your computer if the files are not stored under my music or music the phone wont be able to read them. Good Luck!

I bought an mp3 player 1 gb but all songs are not played


You need to ensure that the files that you have loaded onto the player are not in WMA format. This mp3 player may not be compatible with this type of file.

Mp3 player wont play music, says file not formated


The file not formatted message is not an error that a repair will fix.
The songs that you have loaded onto the player are in a format that the player does not support. Do yourself a favor, and only download files that rae in mp3 format - they will never give you problems, error messages, require long explanations, etc.

Wont play wma files


Different players will accomodate different formats. You might have to reformat the WMA files on your PC and then transfer to your unit.

Those WMA's have a particular DRM-encryption system that the player does not recognize - they have play rights, but no real transfer rights. Convert the files to Mp3 format using Media Monkey and you will be fine.

Device is operating slowly, reset...


Make sure the device is fully charged. Make sure the songs are in the correct format - Mp3 is best; iTunes/AAC will not work; check the bit rate of the songs to make sure they are at acceptable levels.
Also, make sure you are using the Media Manager to convert files. Formatting the player, in this case, might have been a bad idea, b/c it is possible that it erased key system files - I do not see where Sony has the original firmware/software for this particular product on their website, so it is going to be difficult to reload it if that is the case.
Here is some general info: I have seen quite a few threads in which the stated problem is that the Mp3 or Digital Audio Player will not load the songs; will appear to load the songs but will not actually play them in theMp3 player once disconnected from computer; will skip the songs on the player, or show only “0:00” for file length; songs “disappear” all of a sudden (although this particular problem can be caused for many reasons not covered in this article); your store-bought/burned/ripped CD’s will not load into your Mp3 player; or get the error message “File Format Not Supported.” 
All of these problems occur because the user is trying to download a song format that the player does not recognize. Every music file is in a certain format. The most common music file formats are Mp3, WMA, AAC (iTunes), WAV, RA, etc.  In addition, every file format type is in a certain bitrate, size, etc.  By far the most common issue is that the music file contains a license or copyright (especially with WMA or AAC file formats).  Each Mp3 player only recognizes a certain number of these formats. Every Mp3 Player is different. You will have to check your Mp3 player’s product specifications (specs) or user’s manual to find out which formats your particular Mp3 player recognizes. When you try to download or sync the wrong file format, you will get one of the errors that I mentioned above.   If you want to know what file type you have, then you must find the location of the individual music file on your computer, right click the title of the song, and select the option “Properties” from the menu.
Mp3 player product documentation is not straightforward.  If a player supports only non-protected WMA files, it will merely say that it supports WMA – it will not tell which type of WMA it supports.  A player that supports DRM-protected WMA’s will usually indicate such on the box (usually with a Windows Plays For Sure logo – which is actually an ironic misnomer).  DRM stands for Digital Rights Management, and it is a type of licensing system for WMA files.  It is used extensively by mp3 player music services such as Bearshare, LeapFrog, Napster, and others.  Not all DRM licenses are created equal – there are licenses with “play rights,” burn rights,” and “transfer rights.”  Play rights mean that you can only play the song on your PC – it will play fine on your computer, but it will not play in your mp3 player even though it appears to transfer.  Burn rights mean that the song can be burned to CD.  Transfer rights mean that the song can be transferred onto an mp3 player that supports DRM-protected files.  Then, there are unlimited licenses and limited licenses.  Limited licenses only allow you to play a song for a certain length of time. You would have to pay extra to continue using the song after that trial period is over – the time length ranges from a few days to several months or longer.

MyMusix PD-6110 MP3 Player wont play any songs


Unfortunately, your files must have gotten corrupt. This issue is most prevalent if you disconnect the mp3 before it has completed the transfer of songs.

To fix it, format the mp3 by plugging it into the USB port, right clicking the drive that is displayed and choosing "Format". This will remove all songs from the mp3 player. Afterward, you can re-add any songs that were lost. But make sure when disconnecting, you see no loading animation on the screen. Then right click the "Remove Hardware" icon on the bottom right of you screen, choose "Stop". Check again for a loading animation on the screen (if there is one, wait until it stops), and you can remove the mp3 from your USB port.
