Car MP3 player will not play beyond first song

Hi
I have an MP3 that plugs into the car lighter in my car. I put MP3 songs on the card, but the player will only play first song. It is as though it doesn't know how to go to the next song.

I thought perhaps I could attach all the songs into one long stream?

Help!

    This doesn't really answer my question. My songs are all MP3's. They were all in a folder in my ITunes library. I moved them to the 1 GB card. They play fine on the computer, but only the first song plays when I put on the car MP3 player .



    So I wondered - perhaps a solution here would be to attach all the songs as one long stream then the MP3 player would see it as one song. How would I do this?



    Thank you for any help.

    Sometimes, no matter how you configure your MP3 or media player, it simply refuses to play songs and albums in alphabetical order. Some flash card-based MP3 players and car stereo systems play tracks in the order in which they are stored on the device. If you want to play your albums and songs in alphabetical order, then using a utility such as MP3dirsorter (Windows)could be the answer.
    Here's How:

    Downloading and Running MP3dirsorter

    To download the latest version of MP3dirsorter, you can download it from the MP3dirsorter blog site. Once you have downloaded it, the program doesn't need to be installed and so you can simply run it - this makes it useful as a portable application that you can store on removable devices such as USB drives etc.

    Sorting a Folder

    Make sure Windows can access the files on your flash storage card by inserting it into your card reader or plugging your device into a spare USB port. Once found by Windows, an extra drive letter should be displayed in Windows Explorer. Find a folder you want to sort and drag and drop its icon using your mouse over to MP3DirSorter main screen. If you want to alphabetically sort files as well as folders then click on the check box next to the Sort Files Alphabetically option. To sort the contents of entire drives, you can also drag them over to MP3DirSorter's main screen too.

    Checking The Playback Order

    Finally, to check that your albums and songs are in the correct order, play the contents of the flash storage card once again. You should now find that everything is played in alphabetical order.

    What You Need

    MP3DirSorter program
    Digital audio files
    Flash Storage card-based audio device

I have one, which is made by a company called Mach Speed. It plays through the FM freq. If yours is like mine I would make sure the songs on either the flash drive or the digital card play like they should in the computer first. I have about 1gb on mine, so I purchased some smaller flash cards in order to make it easier to manage my music because my songs play in groups, and you you have to scroll through each song in order to get to a particular song.

Also if yours is like mine, mine only plays MP3s so make sure that all of the music is MP3s. I had different types of files mixed before I realized why some songs wouldn't play.

Honestly, I am not too impressed with my player, but it works.

Instant sound.

Rover 25 CD player wont play MP3 format discs


It sounds like your Rover dosn't have MP3 capabilities. You will have to use standard audio CD format (not data/MP3 format). You will only be able to burn about 15-20 songs but they will play in any cd player.

What is polarity? & help with hooking up mp3 player to car?!


POLARITY MEANS +/- AND NOT TO REVERSE. FOR EXAMPLE ON A SERIES WIRING SPEAKER SYSTEM YOU REVERSE POLARITY EVERY OTHER SPEAKER SO THE OHM LOAD DOUBLES. OR ON ELECTRIC CARS SERIES WIRING DOUBLES VOLTAGE OUT PUT AFTER EACH BATTERY IS HOOKED UP.... BASICLY POLARITY IS POSITIVE ONE SIDE NEGATIVE THE OTHER MOST CASES YOU DONT WANT TO GET IT BACKWARDS POSITIVE TO NEGATIVE ONLY CONECT SAME+ TO OTHER + UN LESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING. WHAT POLAITY HAS TO DO WITH AN MP3 ADAPTER I HAVE NO IDEA...WAIT... DOES IT CHARGE THE MP3 PLAYER??? DOES IT HAVE AN ADJUSTABLE VOLTAGE OUTPUT SWITCH?? THATY YOU PLUG IN TO MP3 PLAYER??

Can't get my mp3 player to work iwave


Can solve your holder problem - the little holder with the ball is what pivots your holder and it will fit down in the threaded piece with firm pressure - first put on the little collar so that you can screw the hanger piece on the the holder - we puzzled with this for about half hour before figuring out.
