Car MP3 player will not play beyond first song

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?

    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.

My shaker does not play all of the loaded songs.

I had the same problem. The songs that won't play are probably MP4 files and the shaker only plays MP3 files. You need to change the file format of the songs on the shaker to MP3 files. I downloaded "Media Coder" which was free and it converted all the songs on the shaker that wouldn't play to MP3 files and they play now. Google "Media Coder" and download the free program, it is very easy to use. I had the songs converted in about 2 minutes. Make sure the shaker is plugged into computer so that you can choose the files on the shaker to convert. Hope this helps.

Will not play all songs

Make sure the songs are in the correct format. Make sure the songs are not AAC, WAV, streaming, or some other non-supported format

Mp3 players are more complicated than ever. This player may only accept DRM-encrypted WMA files. I would first check the songs that you have downloaded to make sure they did not have "temporary" licenses with a fixed end date. You can do this by right clicking on an individual song, clicking on properties, and selecting the "license," "digital rights mgmt" or "media usage rights" tab - the wording varies by configuration. It will give you info on the license. If the song says that it has no license, it will not work with this player. One remedy is to use mp3 converter software to convert all of those wma files to Mp3's - I don't know of any free ones, but you can certainly look for free Mp3 Converters. Another remedy on unlicensed songs is to hit the "acquire license" link in the license tab, if one exists.

SD card in MP3 player

Was the SD card in the MP3 player when you loaded the songs or did you load them some other way?  You may have to first put the SD card in the MP3 player first, then load the songs onto the player.
