  • Faraz Zama Oct 12, 2008

Hi Faraz,

Are you aware if there was a windows software update before you restarted the system? What i suggest is to restore the settings back to the working time.

You may run the system restore. Just follow the instructions below.

1. click on start then go to All programs, click on accessories then click on system tool and system restore.
2. a pop up window will show up. just look for a specific date to click on to restore the settings back to the working date and time.

note: your files are still intact.

keep me posted!

regards,

JEff

    Hi,

    With regard to your inquiry, you cannot remove windows media player from the system because it is an embedded application that came with Windows Vista. If this is the case then we might need to try updating your media player.

    Restart your system after installing the update.

    Keep me posted.

    Regards,

WHAT IS THIS USED FOR


MP3 players are used to listen to music, similar to the old portable "Walkman" products of the 1980's. You can load your MP3 format music onto the player through a cable connected between the player and the computer. You can get this music by downloading it from various places on the internet for a price (such as Amazon.com, itunes, etc.) You can also copy music from your music CD collection onto your computer, and then from the computer to your MP3 player.

Some digital media players have the ability to play complete videos! These are called MP4 files. Some of these devices are also able to listen to the radio, or record your speaking voice like a hand-held recorder.

Sometimes it is necessary to convert your music if it is not in the MP3 format (for example: .wav file {wave file}). There are free programs available to do that for you, such as Format Factory which is a completely free download.

Can we view movies in trancend mp850 and can we hear music in ttrancend 850 withiut earphone


Yes you can view movies BUT the movies files must be converted to a format that can be played on your media player.
You need earphones to listen to music and movies.

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses.

My sandisk e260 wont play songs i down loaded


Well, I may have a solution. Some music websites or "free" mp3 websites put a type of license or protection thing on the files that you download so that when you try to listen to them, you can only use certin software/music players and also make it so you cannot use any of the files on your mp3 player/iPod. I tried a place called emusic.com and they say you get 20, or so, free downloads BUT you can only use their music player for them. And the funny thing is, they have avertisements in about half of the packages of new mp3 players in the market. Try looking at their policy or license on the website to see if you can put the songs on your mp3 player. Good luck, and have a nice day.
